Creating Desired Results: The Structure of Personal and Organizational Mastery
Bodine is academically trained in public speaking & human behavior with degrees from UCLA in Speech Communications & Social Psychology. While attending UCLA as a scholarship athlete, Bodine also earned honors as a team captain and stadium record holder.
Shortly after graduating, Bodine became fascinated with the art of sleight-of-hand magic. Six months later he was making his entire living as a sleight-of-hand magician, and he spent the next decade becoming one of the most successful sleight-of-hand entertainers in America, winning awards from his peers in the process. Even back then, his friends remarked about his ability to create extraordinary results in his work and in his life.
But it wasn’t until he was invited to create and deliver his first keynote speech at a business conference, 20 years ago, that he “came back to his formal training” in communications and psychology, and found his true calling in life. He received a standing ovation after that first business speech, and he’s been at it ever since.
Bodine’s path is that of a researcher and passionate communicator, who loves sharing wisdom and strategies that can make a difference for people and work teams. And he’s always updating his awareness. At the Expo for the California Association of Realtors, Bodine was invited to deliver the luncheon keynote speech on using technology to create business success in challenging times. Betty Thomas, the Expo manager, says she chose Bodine to be their luncheon speaker because “he’s so entertaining and he shares strategies that are productive and current.”
His academic training, multifaceted background, and years of research have given him an extraordinary knowledge of human behavior and strategies for success. Bodine has achieved national-class success for himself as an athlete, as a magician, as a speaker, and a workshop trainer. His client list reads like a page from the Fortune 100 — AT&T, Mitsubishi, 3M, Warner Bros. Television, Verizon, Boeing, and Fedex to name a few.
He delivers his information, insights, and strategies with an energy that makes his messages unforgettable, and truly makes learning exciting, productive, and fun.
Schedule a phone conversation with Bodine, and you’ll quickly realize he’s a speaker who can make a difference at your meeting; and also make a difference with your group that will last long after the meeting is over.
