There are many motivational speakers, and then there is the one, the only, the incomparable Dr. Willie Jolley. He truly is a renaissance man!

He’s a triple threat personality and a global thought leader. He is a Hall of Fame speaker, an award-winning singer and a popular national radio and television personality. In addition, he is the author of several international best-selling books.

 

Dr. Willie Jolley has achieved remarkable heights in life, after coming from humble beginnings. His father died when he was a teenager and he put himself through college by singing in nightclubs and recording jingles for radio and television commercials.

 

He went on to become a multi WAMMIE (Washington Area Music Association) Award winning nightclub performer. Yet, at the top of his nightclub career, he was fired and replaced by a karaoke machine, during the karaoke craze that swept America!

 

Dr. Willie Jolley decided that he was not going to give up, so he took that setback and turned it into an amazing “Comeback!” He has gone on to be named “One of the Outstanding Five Speakers in the World” and “Motivational & Inspirational Speaker of The Year” by the 175,000 members of Toastmasters International.

 

In 2005, he was inducted into the prestigious Speaker Hall of Fame and received the CPAE Award (Council of Peers Award of Excellence).

Dr. Jolley soon started receiving speaking requests from other industry sectors and went on to great success speaking to colleges, associations, and corporations. He was the expert Ford Motors called on in 2006, when they were on the brink of bankruptcy. He worked with Ford from 2006 to 2009, and they were able to reject a government bailout and go on to billion-dollar profits.
