Derrick Hayes is the #1 Encouragement Speaker and is internationally known for having the unique talent of turning names and words into positive messages within seconds right before your eyes. Hayes calls these Derricknyms.
While faced with divorce with his after college sweetheart Derrick Hayes moved with a friend and slept on his apartment floor without a bed for over a year. Next to Derrick was a bible that read “WOE is me” and a dictionary that defined woe as a trial and tribulation. When Derrick pulled out a pen and pad he received his life changing statement, “Before you leave work or go to sleep at night, give someone a WOE, a Word Of Encouragement.”
Derrick had Derricknyms but when facing adversity the universe used him to give the world WOE by speaking to him through words so that others would be educated, elevated and entertained.
Now Derrick Hayes has created the WOE Man Show where he will share his life through poetry, Derricknyms, WOE and the art of learning how to tie a tie with the goal of taking learning to the next level. There will be no intermission in the WOE Man Show but an enter mission where audience members receive nuggets of wisdom that will help them go forth and enter their next mission in a better place.
Derrick Hayes is ready to bring the WOE Man Show to schools, colleges, corporations, meetings, conferences, events, concerts, festivals, clubs, casinos, churches, carnivals, and other venues where the people need a positive seed.
Derrick Hayes is excited about bringing the WOE Man Show to a city near you that can help bring an exciting and uplifting program with education and entertainment to your community.
