Bob 'Idea Man' Hooey

Bob's focus is on creating and delivering results-based, idea-rich 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.
