Ford hired Willie to speak to all their employees as well as help them design an internal communications campaign to help them reinforce the Ford Bold Moves Message.
Mr. Jolley has achieved great success in sharing his life story with others, and it all started because he didn’t succumb to bitterness and failure in the wake of his own setbacks. Moreover, he actually found in those setbacks his greatest strengths and assets, and now he finds fulfillment in sharing his hard-earned wisdom with others. His clients include General Motors, Walmart, Verizon and Chevron, and he’s taken his talent for speaking around the world. He hosts The Willie Jolley Weekend Show on Channel 141, Sirius/XM Radio and has a daily radio feature called “The Magnificent Motivational Minute,” which is syndicated in more than 50 markets.
Jolley’s books, speeches and songs are filled with compelling stories and anecdotes that illustrate the particulars of creating a successful, happy life. But all his simple, time-honored talking points have the same foundation: that real success begins the moment you choose a hopeful perspective – when you change your mind, and thereby, your life. He is the author of several international best-selling books including "It Only Takes a Minute to Change Your Life" and” A Setback Is A Setup For A Comeback!" His latest book, "An Attitude of Excellence," (endorsed by Stephen Covey) is being bought by America's top organizations to inspire their people and help them improve their performance! Willie’s programmes are focused on excellence, developing a winning attitude, increasing productivity and outperforming competition.
