"Denver Hudson, founder of The WOW! Movement, did not disappoint! He was sensitive and caring; encouraging and thought-provoking; energizing and inspiring; fun and entertaining! He provided handouts with various charts that were easy to comprehend. There were a variety of activities that generated much conversation and self-reflection with steps on how to create a positive change in behavior - personally, professionally and collectively. We are excited about our potential as we progress along the continuum from woe to WOW!... making a significant difference in the lives of everyone we touch!"
... Joan Scott
“Denver, I see The WOW! Movement exemplified in your personal behavior - it's refreshing to see someone who ‘walks the talk’ when so few do. Your visual tools for the Woe & Wow orientations are very insightful. I've begun to see the world through those "glasses" and they reveal much. Observing the “woe” orientation at work in others has helped me identify it (and begin eradicating it) in myself. The visual model of what the WOW orientation looks like and how it behaves, has given me a "compass" that points in the right direction. I realize you've only scratched the surface and there is more to learn, but already this simple shift in thinking has made a positive impact. Thank you for so generously bringing and sharing value… Your Legacy IS leaving an imprint!”
... Matt Hall
“Denver has given me the extra incentive to want to push harder for the things that are important in my life that I have been ignoring. Now that I have stepped back and looked at it with a new perspective, I know that things are going to be much better. I’m on my way to my WOW!”
... Karen Cadwalader
"Denver, we can't thank you enough for the impression you made on all of us! Your program allowed our staff to examine how they present themselves and how they communicate with others. We found the concept of holding other's dignity with care extremely powerful. This was truly an amazing, unforgettable, and life-changing experience! We are convinced that any individual, company, or group would greatly benefit from The WOW! Movement and it’s ability to foster team cohesiveness."
