Garrison Wynn Bio

Success is more than being good at what you do; it is about being consistently chosen to do it. - Garrison Wynn
Garrison helps people learn how to make the jump from being great at what they do to understanding and developing the qualities it takes to be chosen for the job. He gets them to understand why their products, services, or leadership styles−or those of their competitors−are selected. As he says, “If the world agreed on what’s best, everybody would choose the best and nothing else would be considered. Decision making doesn’t work that way.”

As a keynote speaker, advisor, author, and entertainer, Garrison has worked with some of the world’s most effective corporate leaders and business developers, from multibillion-dollar manufacturers to top New York Stock Exchange wire houses. He has a background in manufacturing, entertainment, sales, telecommunications, and financial services. In his teens, Wynn worked with Magnavox and baseball legend Hank Aaron to promote the world’s first video gaming system, and by age 27, he became the youngest department head in a Fortune 500 company’s history. He researched and designed processes for 38 company locations nationwide and developed and marketed products still being sold in 30 countries. An experienced actor in films and a former professional stand-up comedian, Garrison has hosted television specials and national radio programs. His new top-selling book, published by McGraw-Hill and available in bookstores worldwide, blends a decade of research and Garrison’s candid, laugh-out-loud delivery to finally spill The Real Truth About Success. His additional writing credits include business journal articles, weekly contributions to The Washington Post and a book co-authored with Stephen R. Covey, Ken Blanchard, and Jack Canfield.
