Traveling From: Houston, Texas
Garrison Wynn helps people learn how to make the jump from being great at what they do to understanding and developing the qualities it takes to be chosen for the job. He gets them to understand why their products, services, or leadership styles−or those of their competitors−are selected. As he says, “If the world agreed on what’s best, everybody would choose the best and nothing else would be considered. Decision making doesn’t work that way.”
As a speaker, advisor, author, and entertainer, Garrison Wynn has worked with some of the world's most effective corporate leaders, educators, and business developers, from multibillion-dollar manufacturers and national associations to top New York Stock Exchange wire houses. He has a background in manufacturing, entertainment, telecommunications, and financial services. In his teens, Wynn worked with Magnavox and baseball legend Hank Aaron to promote the world's first video gaming system, and by age 27 he became the youngest department head in a Fortune 500 company's history. He researched and designed processes for 38 company locations nationwide and developed and marketed products still being sold in 30 countries.
An experienced actor in films and a former professional stand-up comedian, Garrison has hosted national television and radio programs. He is the author of the Amazon.com best-selling book The REAL Truth About Success, contributes weekly columns to The Washington Post, and has coauthored with Stephen Covey. His books, articles, and award-winning success tools have received high praise, but his greatest strength is a magnetic live performance that keeps him in high demand, with more than 600 inquiries and 100 speaking dates per year.
