Houston Speakers Bureau – Business Speaker, Garrison Wynn on Change is Mandatory…Stress is Optional

Wednesday, March 2nd, 2016

When the pain of what you are going through becomes greater than the fear of change, you change … but I recommend you avoid most of the pain, embrace the change and adjust.

Perhaps embracing change is not your nature. So how do you bring yourself to a place where change is less traumatic? The first step is to realize that change is always coming. It’s also helpful to acknowledge your emotions about the change ahead; don’t stuff your feelings! If you’re not honest about how you feel, you can easily end up resenting the need to comply with or adapt to the inevitable. Any resentment you harbor can negatively affect your ability to adjust quickly. It can also hamper your willingness to ask for help when needed. Don’t wait; learn the new way, and realize that it takes more guts to ask for help than it does to think you don’t need any help!

Dallas Texas Speakers Bureau – Leadership Speaker, DeDe Murcer Moffett on “Work-Life Balance Increases The Bottom Line”

Tuesday, March 17th, 2015

As an entertaining leadership speaker and trainer, I’m passionate about bringing awareness to the importance of work-life balance for long term success. Leading edge companies aren’t afraid to remove the corporate thumb off employees heads and initiate a whole life culture.  They understand work-life balance increases overall well-being and that increases their bottom line!  In this article I will address what work-life balance is and why companies must implement it now.   So as M.C. Hammer sings lets “break it down”.

Businessdirectory.com defines work-life balance as a comfortable state of equilibrium achieved between an employee’s primary priorities of their employment positions and their private lifestyle.

The short version – Employers helping workers cope better with the competing demands of work and family.

Houston Speakers Bureau – Business Speaker, Garrison Wynn discussing How to be an extremely influential presenter: The high-impact presentation skills of top performers

Tuesday, March 12th, 2013

Houston Texas Speakers Bureau presenter, Garrison Wynn, discusses How to be an extremely influential presenter: The high-impact presentation skills of top performers.

Whether you are a CEO, a professional motivational speaker, a corporate trainer, or a mom trying to get your teenager to pay attention (good luck with that), you need high-impact presentation skills. Your message, regardless of its content, needs the most effective delivery system it can get.

We’ve all suffered from boring, dry, sometimes annoying talks that contained good content … but not quite good enough to interrupt the thoughts of suicide that might mercifully shorten our exposure to a horrible speaker. Our research of more than 5,000 top performers showed that outstanding presentation skills were a key factor in their influence. We also noticed that people with superior presentation skills were more likely to get promoted even if they lacked other seemingly sought-after qualities. It seems that having value is not as valuable as explaining it well.

Austin Speakers Bureau – Business & Communication Speaker, Anne Pritchard Grady discussing The Four Letter Word That Equals Success

Monday, January 14th, 2013

Austin Texas Speakers Bureau presenter, Anne Pritchard Grady, discussing The Four Letter Word That Equals Success.

Four letter words have gotten a bad reputation.  I’m sure you can think of a handful of them right now.  There’s one four letter word, however, that equals communication, camaraderie, and results.  It has the capability to be extremely powerful, yet it often struggles to reach its full potential.  It often causes friction, friendship, and frustration, all at the same time.  What is this powerful four letter word?  TEAM.

You’ve probably seen or heard the acronym for T.E.A.M. (Together Everyone Achieves More).  Why then is it so hard to create effective, high performance teams?  Because teams are made up of individuals, and individuals are imperfect.
