Using his own exceptional photographs as examples, Dewitt helps his audiences see the world with new eyes and rediscover their own creative gifts.

Extraordinary Visions
Where do we find the vision to take our lives to the next level? How do we summon the passion to keep "raising the bar"? How can we make our life less of a struggle and more of a joy?

    “You changed lives! It was clear during the standing ovations, that your participation made the meeting something special. Because of what you did, this will be one of the Million Dollar Round Table’s most cherished meetings.” 
    --MDRT Chairman, Main Platform Committee

    "Excellent speaker …very well received by everyone"
    --Prudential Fox & Roach Realtors & Trident Group

    "We LOVED Dewitt! I received lots of positive comments about both speakers. Dewitt could not have been more inspiring. I suspect he will be hearing soon from some of our Advisors in response to his call for help in placing free photos in hospitals and other facilities that serve our wounded warriors. We are currently surveying conference attendees, and I fully expect we will see a lot of “exceeds expectations.” 
    --First Command Financial Services

    "In my 34 years in the business I have never heard a better presentation than that by Dewitt Jones. He was outstanding, articulate, touching, engaging and on a personal basis. He did not have a gimmick but a message that resonated to all attendees, Advisers, spouses, and guests. He could not have been a better fit with his message and delivery." 
    --First Command Financial Services

    "I felt like I gave a gift to my meeting's attendees. The visuals were beyond beautiful (which is especially important when you're locking people in a ballroom in Hawaii) and the story was equally compelling. Dewitt's delivery is perfect for his message. That man is one fine storyteller. We loved it."
