Thank you again for helping make my sales conference so awesome. We have had many different speakers year after year, but none have gotten such rave reviews as you have.

You took the time to research and speak with my people, and it made a WORLD of difference! It is difficult to keep a group focused all day, but you did just that. Looking forward to having you present again in the very near future!

How to Create Great Leaders

Why Choose Garrison Wynn?

When you hire the right sales speaker, your audience leaves energized, entertained, educated and alive with possibilities.

Garrison Wynn is a top salesperson and sales manager in three industries, interviewed thousands of top-performing sales managers to determine how they stay effective. He found that the most successful were reluctant to talk about what was working–many were afraid that revealing the source of their success would dilute their influence and make them less successful. But Garrison pressed them for the truth, and many of them responded with straight talk about success.

Garrison uses his extensive research and observations to make crucial points, and then he taps his past as a stand-up comedian to drive those points home in a way that audiences remember. In Garrison’s keynotes he gives sales managers positive coaching tools so they can get the most from their salespeople. They’ll learn how to manage their ego-driven top producers, coach lower performers to improve, turn talent into success, and maintain a sales culture of excellence.

In addition to leadership tools, this session also provides managers with specifics they can teach to make their salespeople more effective. It’s crucial for salespeople to quickly build strong relationships with customers. In three to five minutes, they’ve got to build trust and make a case for the value of their service. Garrison will help managers instruct salespeople in what he calls the tools of influence:

  • Making sure your sincerity matches the situation
  • Creating multiple solutions for a single problem: Having depth in your value
  • Making customers look good in front of the people they want to impress
  • Explaining your value in 20 seconds
  • Being clear: It does not matter how smart you are if they don’t know what you’re talking about
  • Getting people to change their mind set: Show similarities first and differences second


Your keynote presentation was a terrific way for the CMSA to kick off our 90th annual convention. Your high-energy presentation with an upbeat, humorous style helped to set a tone that carried throughout the remainder of our conference. The movers of California laughed out loud as you recounted some of your own stories of sales management. I would be pleased to recommend you as a keynote speaker to any association executive or event planner.

I am not one who will usually write a letter to someone I have heard speak, but you have changed that. I recently had the great pleasure to hear you speak at our annual sales rally in Reno, Nevada. Your dynamic delivery kept me alert and involved. It was a very rewarding experience for me and is the reason for this letter. Your keynote address is inspiring and funny — one of the most entertaining I’ve ever heard. Your use of humor mixed with your real-life experiences kept all who attended glued to your every word. It was a great session and beautifully presented. I have received numerous comments from attendees and they seem to agree that it was one of the best ever! Receiving a standing ovation from this group is quite a compliment. Thank you for sharing your time, your knowledge and your sense of humor.
