With over 27 years of experience, he delivers keynote presentations for a wide array of clients, such as Amazon, Walmart, Berkshire Hathaway, UnitedHealth Group, the NFL, and NASA. His speaking engagements also extend to organizations like Indiana University, SciQuest, the Southeast Mine Safety & Health Conference, and TechFest 2015, with Wynn speaking over 90 times per year.

Wynn's early career includes roles as International Corporate Fulfillment Manager for SCI from 1984 to 1990 and as a Sales Engineer with Babbitt International from 1990 to 1993. He was also the youngest department head in a Fortune 500 company's history, where he developed and implemented processes across 38 company locations nationwide. He further contributed to the business world by authoring books such as "The Real Truth About Success: What the Top 1% Do Differently, Why They Won't Tell You, and How You Can Do It Anyway!" and "The Cowbell Principle: Career Advice On How To Get Your Dream Job And Make More Money," which catapulted him to Amazon #1 bestselling author status.

His programs are tailored to the specific industry he's addressing, providing actionable, research-based insights from top performers, and answering the key question: how to get people to do what you want when you want.

Millennial Loyalty: Keeping and Attracting Top Young Talent

People in their 20s don't want what their parents wanted from a job. They are also more likely to live at home and less likely to put up with a work environment that cramps their style. What a shift in mindset! 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.

Change = Success: Creating Transition without Revolution

Success is almost always about working well with others to get the best possible results. The issue is that not everyone agrees on what is important, and it becomes difficult to get everyone on board when change is required to create or maintain success. Also, some people are so set in their ways and resistant to change that they see everything through a filter of suspicion. Or worse, things get overly dramatic or stressful and can develop into a "blame distribution" environment that affects morale and productivity.

In this entertaining and inspirational research-based session, best-selling author Garrison Wynn shows how leaders, managers, and supervisors can achieve cohesion without manipulation, and to create clear, unified actions to quickly resolve conflicts. You'll find out how to make sure people value your opinion, respect your decisions (and the organization's new way), and quickly turn resistance into workable collaborations.

Change is Mandatory .....Stress is Optional

Change is something we all have to deal with, but the stress that accompanies change is more of choice. In this heavily researched session, Garrison applies his signature humor to a very serious topic. This fun, comprehensive program offers tools and tips for getting through big change with very little stress. More importantly, it creates an emotional shift for attendees as they see how much control they have over how change affects them. This session also shows attendees how stress is more about what we believe than it is about what is actually happening. From embracing big transitions in technology to dealing with growth or downsizing, this presentation helps leaders, employees and customers implement necessary changes with minimal resistance.

Generations Working Better Together

In this extremely informative, entertaining, solutions-based session, speaker Garrison Wynn explores why younger and older people don't see eye to eye and what to do about it in the workplace. From pointers on motivating, managing, and retaining younger employees to preventing older managers from losing their minds, this research-based program shows it's possible for Baby Boomers and Gen X and Y employees to work well together.

Getting Great Results: Turning Talent Into Performance

In this program, results from the largest management survey ever conducted are combined with real-life management and leadership solutions to get the most from your people, regardless of their skill level. Participants learn to manage their ego-driven top producers, how to listen like leaders and make their people feel heard, how to hire for talent and turn it into top performance, how to create a culture of excellence with their most promising people, and how to help their low performers to fight their way to the middle.
