Show Your Ink: Unleashing the Power of Authenticity
(Talk can be tailored towards Leadership, Sales, Culture, Customer Service, and innovation)

This is Dr. Dewett’s most popular keynote based on his book Show Your Ink. It’s a supremely colorful take on the importance of authenticity.

Dr. Dewett shares his decades of research and business experience that helped him realize that all good, but not yet great people, teams, and companies, lacked one key ingredient: authenticity.

At its core, authenticity is about being “more.” More real. More honest. More credible. Above all, more human.

Todd takes attendees on an emotional ride as they learn that more is always possible when you are as human as possible. Using stories as his medium, Todd lifts them up, opens their eyes, and ignites their passion for work and life.

Dr. Dewett’s Keynote Takeaways

1. More is always possible.
Create teams that are committed, not just compliant. Ignite the fire for excellence as the only real standard. Transform customers into raving fans through real connection.

2. Excellence is free.
The very best drivers of personal and team improvement don’t cost a penny. It takes time, effort, and honesty – but it’s free. There are no excuses.

3. Authenticity beats authority.
Achievement is about connection, not power. Discover and clarify the authentic you. Break down the wall. Seek candor. Seek to understand. Seek to help.

Every keynote experience is designed to inspire measurable improvement. Your audience will leave elated and genuinely excited about engaging work differently: more open, more honest, more authentic – more successful.
