Garrison's Top Motivational Keynotes
Making Employee Engagement Actually Happen
We hear the term "employee engagement" a lot these days; we also hear how recognition, goal alignment and a clear path to success can create it. But how can an individual positively influence the opinions his or her employees and coworkers have about their job? This highly entertaining session, backed by Evolve Performance Group research across 46 countries (and combined with over 70 years of Gallup survey data) shows that the thing people value most is feeling valuable! It gives the specific communication tools that anyone can use to dramatically reduce resistance to change, difficult behavior and employee turnover. The impact of this program reaches far beyond the session itself, creating an emotional shift that fuels immediate implementation.
The Real Truth About Success
What The Most Influential Do Differently And Why They Won't Tell You
Prepare to laugh and learn as a decade of Wynn Solutions research reveals what makes owners and managers of top-performing businesses so effective – and it's not what you'd expect! If you enter this keynote session expecting to learn all about best practices and superior strategy, you'd better read the title again. Standout success in a challenging economy often comes from personal advantage, whether it's perceived value, personality, leadership-style, communication skills, abundant resources, or access to privileged information. This entertaining session takes a realistic look at the influence you'll need to make sure your knowledge and hard work deliver the results you want.
Winning the Talent War
Keeping and Attracting Young Top Performers
People in their 20s don't want what their parents wanted from a job. Also, many Gen Y "potential employees" would rather work temporary jobs (through staffing companies) than commit to a company full time. This means there are far fewer people looking for jobs than anticipated. That means more jobs than job seekers (for the first time since this kind of data has been gathered) creating a "War" for top young talent. And they are not lining up for labor jobs (where you might get your hands dirty} even though they pay four times more than the job they took at the mall! They are also more likely to live at home and less likely to put up with a work environment that cramps their style. Attracting the young people needed to replace your retiring workforce (and making sure they stay long enough to make a difference) is crucial for your organization's future.
This entertaining yet heavily researched program shows business owners, leaders and managers how to adapt their organization into a company young people want to work for and how to establish a culture they do not want to leave. Besides actually having a work force 10 years from now, the benefits include improved performance and heightened accountability from the millennials who represent your company's future.

Being the Best vs. Being Consistently Chosen
Success is more than being good at what you do; it's about being consistently chosen to do it. Garrison helps people to understand why their products, services, or leadership styles or those of their competitors are selected. People don't necessarily choose what's best; they choose what they are most comfortable with, whether it's the best or not. We've all heard the importance of best practices and superior knowledge, so why the smartest people with the most information aren't always number one in their field? This keynote provides original research on managing expectations and emotions and shows there really is more to success than being the best.

THE ROYAL BANK OF SCOTLAND
This is by far the best keynote we have ever had. This is a tough group of seasoned professionals, so our choice of motivational speaker was critical to ensure our objectives were met. You did an excellent job of addressing the specifics we identified and accomplished that with humor and grace. Getting everyone on the same page, being really funny and focusing on a repeatable process for communication was the key. Most importantly, feedback from our staff was highly positive and we have had a 23% increase in sales.
NAPA AUTO PARTS
You have a great responsibility to select motivational speakers that will hit a home run with your audience. We were looking for two things in a keynote speaker... humor and an impactful message. Garrison did a great job researching our customers and making every topic he touched on relatable. His humor was right on...and his message was powerful. Selecting speakers for conferences can be an inexact science. Save yourself the time and effort and just hire him to speak at your meeting. You won't regret it.
Well, back in the office, and the event is being called "The Best Ever!" by our executive team. Motivational speaker Garrison Wynn is a pro's pro. He took our pre-con conference call, and unlike past presenters, was able to weave our theme and our core culture points of "Commitment - Humility - Respect" throughout it, and he did so with ease and continuity while entertaining the audience continuously. But like I said, not only did the audience enjoy him, but our executive team knew we made the right decision to put him on first . Using our past keynote presenters as reference points, they felt Garrison was indeed the best, and able to adapt his speech to our message
Garrison was everything we asked for in a keynote speaker and more. Not only did he engage and energize the crowd; he got a standing ovation and connected with them on their level. He delivered a laughter-filled keynote address with a powerful message. I loved the way he spoke to every meaningful objective and brought new material that was relevant to the event. Fantastic! Couldn’t be happier.
Your presentation to our team allowed us to produce some of the most successful and profitable years in the history of Caterpillar. The impacts of your work are still in force today. We would highly recommend Garrison Wynn to help any company make the necessary transition that we have successfully made.
I just wanted to take a quick moment to share how wonderful it was to meet and work with Garrison. He was a true professional from the beginning to the end. If I were asked to pick a handful of words to describe him I immediately think of: flexible, accommodating, friendly, professional, quick-witted, intuitive, and hilarious. He was extremely thorough in asking questions and very in tune to the topic of the meeting. He tailored a message that was spot on in the material, highly engaging and humorous in his delivery. He held the audience's attention captive the entire time he was on stage! After working with Garrison I would strongly recommend him for any future event, either inside or outside of our company.
