Customization and Virtual Keynotes

Garrison Wynn customizes each keynote program using research and pre-program planning for your event. From discussions with your superstars to surveying the top performers in your field, this process helps separate the so-called “good ideas” from what is working in your industry. Every program, that Garrison does can be done virtually. Working in multiple formats based on client need, to webcast programs shot in front of a small audience and broadcast to multiple locations, Garrison records in a webcast studio where he can do high-quality full body shot productions on par with network television.


This fast-paced, entertaining keynote creates an emotional shift for attendees as they see how much control they have over how change affects them. It also shows that stress is more about what we believe than it is about what is happening. It gives specific communication tools that anyone can use to dramatically reduce resistance to change, anxiety, employee turnover, and difficult behavior. From market challenges, employee engagement issues and just embracing everyday work and life problems, this research-based program takes a fun look at a very serious topic.

CREATING A CULTURE OF LOYALTY: Reducing employee turnover and job dissatisfaction

This highly focused, entertaining session shows leaders and influencers at all levels how to consistently create a sustainable culture of loyalty. This is not the view from 30,000 feet; it’s a high-energy, direct connection to the tools and tactics that are dramatically improving employee retention right now. This program is a fun “experience” designed to provide you with actionable ideas and solutions that will assist in driving a sustainable culture that will help your organization to achieve its goals by keeping and attracting the people you need to succeed.

MAKING THE MOST OF DIFFICULT SITUATIONS: Action and Adaptability Create Opportunity

This funny, insightful keynote combines relationship-building with no-fluff motivation and change to deliver real solutions in uncertain times. Garrison examines the challenges we face (from post-COVID-19 issues to communication breakdown) and shows how we can laugh at our problems while using them as catalysts for success. This session covers a lot of ground and provides no-cost, researched-based, easily implemented, proven solutions that your people can use right away.


This upbeat, entertaining program explains why many older employees can be stuck in their ways, and why some younger workers are more likely to snap a picture of a fire than run from it! From how to influence and effectively motivate Gen Y & Z workers, to making sure your veterans pass on their knowledge and stay focused as they head toward retirement, this program shows how all generations can look-out for each other (and are actually much more effective together because of their differences). This fun informative session (backed by the latest research and employee survey data) focuses on how generations can blend their contributions to create a more successful future.

VALUE-BASED LEADERSHIP: Making Employee Engagement Actually Happen

We hear the term “employee engagement” a lot these days; we also hear how recognition, goal alignment and a clear path to success can create it. But how can an individual positively influence the opinions of his or her employees and coworkers about their job? This highly entertaining session, backed by thousands of up-to-date anonymous employee surveys in multiple industries (and combined with over 30 years of Gallup research data), shows that the thing people value most is feeling valuable! This session shows how the most successful leaders quickly engage workers/team members in a way that improves business performance and the overall employee experience. The impact of this program reaches far beyond the session itself, creating an emotional shift that fuels immediate implementation.


Whether you are trying to reduce your number of recordables, or prevent a good safety record from creating complacency, this entertaining, customized session is more than just a safe bet. It will get your people laughing, learning and motivated to create a culture of safety while maintaining productivity. This program focuses on developing the personal influence to make things stick. Whether you're helping leaders move change (get buy-in) through their locations, dealing with generational based issues or getting workers to look-out for each other on the job site, this fun research-based session is the right choice. Garrison is authentic - a guy who's been there. He's a chemical plant explosion survivor (not injured) who has developed safety products still in use worldwide. He expertly fuses his experiences into key takeaways such as how to build the trust and relationships that make an effective safety culture a consistent reality. He delivers those takeaways using a humorous approach that will have a serious impact on your event.

Garrison was everything we asked for and more. Not only did he engage and energize the crowd; he got a standing ovation and connected with them on their level.

I just wanted to take a moment to say thank you for your outstanding presentation at our conference last week. You were simply fantastic, hilarious and motivating. We've heard some pretty amazing feedback about you and I just wanted to share. Your name was definitely circulating after your departure and I was giving out your information like crazy. I actually still am! Just the other day, I got a call from one of our attorney's in Richmond, VA asking about you. He said "That guy could have his own TV show!" Another manager, here in my office, who is rather regiment in her management style, confessed to me that your presentation will definitely make her speak and act differently when it comes to handling her own employees. Who said Rome wasn't built in one day? Wow! You really made an impact.
