PEI names keynote speaker for Young Executives Winter Conference



The Petroleum Equipment Institute announced that Garrison Wynn will be the keynote speaker for the 2013 Young Executives Winter Conference, scheduled for Feb. 6-8 at Sand Key Resort in Tampa/Clearwater Beach, Fla.

As a motivational speaker, adviser, author and professional entertainer, Wynn works 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, telecommunications and financial services.

As a teen, Wynn worked with Magnavox and baseball legend Hank Aaron to promote the world’s first video gaming system, and at 27, he became the youngest department head in a Fortune 500 company’s history. An experienced actor in films and a former professional stand-up comedian, Wynn has hosted television specials and national radio programs.

His new book, published by McGraw-Hill and available in bookstores worldwide, blends a decade of research and Wynn’s candid laugh-out-loud delivery to finally tell “The Real Truth About Success.” Wynn’s 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.

Wynn will speak to the Young Executives on Feb. 7. Registration for the event will begin Sept. 15.
