Bob 'Idea Man' Hooey

"As the International President of the Global Speakers Federation I have seen many speakers present in the last 12 months around the world. Bob 'Idea man' Hooey is one of the most outstanding speakers I have seen and worked with. He truly walks his talk and is a fountain of ideas and innovation in his presentation on stage and in his dealings off stage. I recommend Bob to anyone who is seeking a dynamic speaker who will bring something interesting, thought provoking and fun every time he gets up to speak."
Lindsay Adams CSP President, Global Speakers Federation 2009-2010

Bob's focus is on creating and delivering results-based programs which form a foundation for applied education (Ideas At Work!) rather than simply 'just' training. Education-based training programs help your team understand the 'why' and the 'process' rather than simply training them in the 'how' or 'what' of some skill, procedure, or policy. This applied education leads to greater personal leadership, responsibility, and ownership by your team; which leads to a more successful and profitable organization.

For example, a speaker friend mentioned a visit to a well known fast food chain where he asked for a "Chocolate Milk Shake and an Apple Pie". The counter person smiled and said, "Would you like some dessert with that?" She had been trained to say that to help up sell her customers. However, she had not been educated in truly listening to and serving them.

Bob wants your leaders and their teams to gain applied education from his innovative training programs designed and delivered to assist you in equipping and motivating them to grow and to succeed. He is a leader and former adult educator who has taught at Canadian Colleges, Technical Schools and Universities who now teaches and shares his ideas world-wide.

Bob's innovative Ideas At Work! have been successfully applied by ten's of thousands of professionals, leaders, sales teams, and students around the world and have been field-proven in the enhanced skills and productivity of their employees and co-workers.

Bob works with leading edge business owners, organizations, independent professionals, and individuals who want to enhance their leadership and careers, as well as organizations that want to remain competitive, motivate, educate, and empower their staff, improve client acquisition, increase sales and become more profitable.
