How Woody can help YOU succeed!
First, Woody will find out what YOUR needs actually are!
Woody has over 30 years of experience as a performer, lecturer, and motivational speaker. Now he has decided to dedicate his time to helping other individuals, businesses, and organizations benefit from the education, experience, and attitude that has helped him keep going. Whether you need a keynote speaker, breakout session, master of ceremonies, in-house training seminar, personal coach, or just a performance filled with fun, excitement, and audience involvement, Woody can help you meet your goals.
Woody's years as a professional magician and comedian, gaining rave reviews, becoming the first magician ever accepted into the Maine Arts Commission's exclusive Touring Artist Program, and the first magician ever hired for many of Maine's top arts venues, ensures that your group will enjoy their time together, relax, and learn better. Studies show that people better retain information which has an emotional tie, and humor has been shown to be a great team-building tool.
When a person with severe, systemic childhood arthritis can still go on to become a police officer and a professional magician, others realize that determination and courage can conquer almost anything. When he survived a massive heart attack and numerous surgeries while keeping his sense of humor, and continued to run a physically-intensive business throughout it all, people can see that attitude is everything when it comes to coping with difficulties.
With a wide range of experience --from counseling to police work, private enterprise to a statewide non-profit-- plus education and training in business, social services, leadership, and theater, Woody has been successful in numerous fields of endeavor. Add to this his leadership in non-profit agencies, industry associations, and local government, and you have a speaker who has truly "seen it all". His success in all he has accomplished has been well-earned, and he is ready to pass this knowledge and these skills to you or your audience!
