Wisdom In The Weirdest Places

 Whether it is increasing sales, improving customer service, or meeting your own personal dreams, Wisdom in the Weirdest Places is the entertaining, humorous speech to get you motivated toward achieving your goals.

        Robert Wilson has explored much of the world’s tried and true wisdom that has been passed down over the ages.  And, in his studies, he has discovered that the path to success, to achieving our goals and dreams, is often right under our nose.  The problem is that we can’t see it because our vision is clouded by doubt and fear.  Robert shows how to overcome these barriers to success.

        You'll discover how Wisdom, Ideas and Courage are often found in unexpected places.  Such as how an "F" on an English paper convinced Robert that he could become a successful writer.  And, how a college prank and four words in Braille led to the publication of his first book.  As a bonus Robert will share the four secrets to a long life, and how the burning desire to achieve a single goal kept one woman alive for 122 years.

        You’ll see your people focus on both their personal and business goals as Robert shares his simple plan for achieving them.  Plus, Robert will tie his message to your meeting theme or organizational objectives.  This presentation is perfect as a meeting kickoff or for closing on high note.

        Achieving your goals has never been easier.  Book Robert Wilson today for your next conference.

Comments about Robert Wilson's
Wisdom In The Weirdest Places

"Thank you so much for serving as our guest speaker at the Hospitality Retreat at the Biltmore Estate. Your presentation, Wisdom in the Weirdest Places, was well delivered and thoroughly enjoyed by our attendees. It is not often that a speaker can appeal to both a male and female audience, ranging in age from 25 to 65. However your program hit the mark with everyone, as we could all relate to many of the questions we are forced to ask ourselves. In this busy world, we rarely take time for self-reflection and your ideas inspired us to make the time to challenge ourselves to not only reach for, but to obtain our goals. Thank you again and we hope to have you join us for a future program."
Julie Ann Haley, CMP, Director of Meetings & Expositions, D&D Communications Group/Hospitality Construction Magazine

Wisdom in the Weirdest Places was one of the best talks our association has received this year. Filled with humor, Wisdom in the Weirdest Places delivers a poignant message that hits home with just about everyone on both a personal and professional level. I would highly recommend Robert Wilson as a guest speaker…no matter what your position or lot in life, his enthusiasm, passion, and yes, wisdom, strikes a chord."
Sara J. Becker, Executive Director, American Advertising Federation, Great Falls Chapter

"Your 45 minute speech was well received by the group and helped promote the "Growth" theme of our meeting. Personally, I have really played up the concept: `you cannot hit what you don't aim for' when discussing year-end performance objectives. I appreciate your part in making the meeting a success."
Ken Weiss, Site Manager, IBM Global Services
