Bob 'Idea Man' Hooey - Have Mouth, Will Travel

| Home | Success Articles | Keynotes and Programs | Contact Us | Meeting Planners |

Growing up, I dreamed of being a cowboy or a professional speaker traveling the world...

It turns out I was allergic to hay, so...

Westerns were big on TV back then... I remember watching shows like Wagon Train, Gun Smoke, the Rifleman, Rawhide, the Lone Ranger, Roy Rogers, and my favorite, Have Gun Will Travel starring Richard Boone.

It was good to have role models and heroes as a kid. Whether it was at the movies on a Saturday afternoon or sitting, mesmerized, in front of a small black and white TV, I was hooked. I wanted to be 'that' cowboy riding in to face down the bad guys, to be the one who brought hope and help to the town folk or business owners.

Amazingly, I did grow up to be the one bringing hope and help! And, my dream of speaking around the world: Have Mouth, Will Travel was a reality.

Cowboy Bob with his sister Patti............

Bob spoke to 3200 students (grades 3-7) at a Rise Up against bullying rally.

Paladin (Richard Boone) was a West Point educated gentleman with a taste for fine wines and foods. Based at the Hotel Carlton in San Francisco, he was a man (gun) for hire.

Paladin would do anything for those in serious need. He read the newspapers from across the country and sometimes sent his calling card to those he felt might use his services as gunfighter, bodyguard, or anything else that his skills could accommodate. His fee to those who could pay was $1,000. I charge a bit more for inflation... smile!

Gene Rodenberry, of Star Trek fame, polished his writing skills on this show! Guess he and George Lucas were inspired to bring 'westerns' to a new level, in the stars.

About Bob, the world explorer: Life is an adventure to be lived and experienced.

I have been privileged to see my Ideas At Work! with audiences and venues around the world. Have Mouth, Will Travel has become a living reality and I am so pleased.

I've had the pleasure of speaking to sales teams, managers, and students in Iran (2008), innovative business leaders and management teams in Australia (2016), New Zealand (2016) India (2009), Russia (2010) India, China (2017), Ireland, Scotland (2017) France, Denmark, Germany, Switzerland, South Africa, etc, as well as my continuing work here in North America. In total, I have had the privilege of presenting in 21 countries, so far. Perhaps yours will be number 22?

I've seen people in countries where local audience members, who did not make much money, dug into their pockets and bought my materials. I was humbled that they saw their value and inspired to continue to push past my comfort zone in delivering my best and in creating materials that provide hope and help in these challenging times.

In addition to North America, Amsterdam (March 2010) and (June 2010) in Vladivostok, Far Eastern Russia. Australia (2013) and more recently Cape Town, SA (2015) and Paris, France (2015). What a privilege! And for 2016, Holland, Germany, Denmark, Dubai, UAE, New Zealand and Australia. 2017: Beijing, China, as well as Ireland and Scotland. 2018 will see us return to Cuba, explore the Dominican Republic, and return to Australia. Still waiting to see on Europe and the Philipinnes.

My speaking has afforded me the opportunity of visiting the countries to the right (more to come and be posted) as well as traveling most of North America sharing my ideas. To my audiences and those who engaged me, my thanks.

Perhaps, I'll have the chance to travel to your city and country in the next while. I'd certainly be willing to discuss how we can work together to make that happen. I've included a bit of information below, as well as links to my other sites, to let you know what I can bring with me.
