MEET LUKE WYCKOFF

INSPIRATIONAL KEYNOTE SPEAKER AND SOCIAL MEDIA MASTERMIND
WHY LUKE? YOU CAN'T AFFORD NOT TO!

Audience members agree that Luke Wyckoff gets conferences off to a rousing start as a keynote speaker.  Listeners not only become better informed on timely business issues but they feel empowered and energized to tackle challenges like executive hiring, team motivation, social media, and enterprise startups. So many times, keynote speakers are either dry academics with lots of substance but no style, or “cheerleader” speakers who are all style and no substance.  Luke grabs the best of both, leaving each listener better educated, open to change, and thoroughly motivated.  
OVER 20 YEARS OF AMAZING EXPERIENCES

Luke is a fearless entrepreneur who turns good ideas and unmet needs into successful companies thanks to his unique leadership style and his knack for building top notch teams.  His passion for business, life, and people is infectious and inspiring.
Keynoters set the tone for a conference.  After a presentation and Q&A session with Luke, your people will be enlightened, upbeat, and energized…ready for whatever comes their way!  

With your input and direction, any of Luke’s presentations can be customized for your organization. Here are some of Luke’s recent keynote topics:

SOCIAL MEDIA AND BUSINESS - STAY AHEAD OF THE WAVE

Don’t assume everyone in your organization is on the same page regarding what social media is…and how it can and should be used by your organization. If you’re not staying ahead of the curve in terms of social media techniques and platforms, your organization and specific campaigns will be dismissed in a heartbeat by today’s savvy customers and users.

EXECUTIVE INTERVIEWING - IT CAN WORK!

Finding the right person for an executive position is an art. Usually, the best candidates are not actively job hunting and those that are are very good at putting only their best foot forward. Luke will present and discuss his proven executive search and screening techniques to ensure your new executive not only has the right top-notch skills but will also thrive in your organization’s unique culture.

GET OFF YOU $&$ AND DO SOMETHING! HOW TO CHANGE YOUR ATTITUDE AS A CEO

We all chuckle about “paralysis by analysis.” But when the buck stops with you, it’s easy to become overly-cautious and miss out on fleeting opportunities. Luke will explore organizational and personal decision making techniques to break that cycle and create new attitudes and habits that keep your organization moving forward.

RUN NAKED AND NEVER GET CAUGHT - TAKING RISKS IN THE CURRENT ECONOMY

Whether you’re considering a startup venture or taking your current company to the next level, a tough economy can be your friend…not your enemy. After all, anyone can float a boat when the tide is rising; big winners set sail when others are tying up at the dock!

SOCIAL MEDIA ANALYTICS

Don’t just “do” social media marketing! There are incredible opportunities to measure impact and ROI that can help you do social media right. We’ll discuss the most sophisticated tools out there that can slice and dice the data to fine-tune your campaign and justify your budget.

EXECUTIVE NETWORKING

Social media helps get your professional face out there. But ongoing face to face contact still closes the deal and can get you your next professional opportunity. How can busy executives and corporate climbers optimize the time they spend building the right relationships, whether with prospective employers or potential clients and customers?

HR - WHY YOU DON'T GET A SEAT AT THE TABLE!

Break the mindset that HR is an island within a corporation. No wonder the best job seekers do their best to bypass HR to get to the hiring executive or board members! There are proven strategies that can position HR professionals as indispensable partners in the organization, rather than a “don’t call me, we’ll call you” afterthought.


For twenty years, Luke Wyckoff has been educating and entertaining audiences from North America to Europe with substantive, high-energy presentations. Yes, substance AND style! Luke is one of those rare speakers who can deliver both as a memorable keynote speaker for your organization’s most important event.

ABOUT LUKE WYCKOFF

No matter how much success he’s enjoyed and how many miles he’s travelled, several times each year, Luke Wyckoff makes it back to his hometown of Sheridan, Michigan to enjoy a week or more with family and friends and savor the burgers at the Hogs Head Saloon on Main Street.  That’s the essence of Luke Wyckoff—he’s never met a person who is not a friend and he never forgets a friend.
Along the way, Luke has made his friends and family proud by excelling in business development and his own startups.  Luke earned his undergraduate degree in Marketing & Sales from Ferris State University in 1993.  While in school, he worked for a Chicago-based print management and supplies company, landing major contracts with Michigan health care providers.
After graduation, his next stop was at Development Dimensions International, Inc., an executive assessment and placement firm based in Pittsburgh. As an Account Executive in Grand Rapids, Michigan, and later as a Senior Account Executive in Denver, Luke managed a multi-state portfolio of clients and consistently won VIP Awards for exceeding sales goals.
Luke left DDI in 2007, vowing never to work “for” anyone again (although he freely admits he reports to Lauren Shipman daily—she runs the day to day operations of his company, Social Media Energy!). He remained in Denver (“Are you kidding…Why would I leave?!) and founded Wyckoff Consulting, providing clients with executive-level personnel search and assessment services.  From the beginning, Wyckoff Consulting was a leader in using assessment techniques that evaluate not only a candidate’s skills but his or her suitability and adaptability to specific corporate cultures.
Wyckoff Consulting also was on the leading edge of the art of identifying and recruiting candidates through social media.  As that part of the business grew, and clients asked for more and more social media management services, Luke formed Social Media Energy.  Social Media Energy continues to be a leader in establishing, maintaining, and evaluating the social media presence of major companies across the United States.
Luke succumbed to his entrepreneurial bent again in 2012 when, with a team of trusted advisers, he refined a unique concept just begging for a company to make it happen.  We Pay Your Bill is a financial transaction service company that allows, for example, country club members to pay dues and fees with credit cards regardless of the club’s payment policies.
An award winning debater at Ferris State University, Luke is a memorable speaker who consistently delivers high-energy, information-packed keynote speeches on issues such as social media (including analytics), entrepreneurship, sales motivation, and building executive teams.When he’s not speaking or overseeing these three companies and their respective sales teams, Luke can be found on the golf course or at a Broncos or Nuggets game.  He’ll also be busy planning his next trip to West Michigan.
