enTIEtainer Tells Stories Through Neck Ties to Empower Others to Greatness

Derrick Hayes is the #1 Encouragement Speaker and is internationally known for having the unique talent of turning name and words into positive messages within seconds right before your eyes. Hayes calls these Derricknyms.

After being a sought-after keynote speaker at several events sponsored by such entities as the U.S. Department of Commerce, Subway, Legacy Chevrolet, Brown Sanders College, Georgia State University, Tennessee Childcare Facilities Corporation, Mississippi 4-H, American Camping Association, Bowie State University, Tennessee State University, Georgia Power, Jackson State University, and many others Derrick Hayes was asked by a friend to participate in Bow Tie Monday.

The last thought on Derrick Hayes mind was to wear a tie to work but he also did not want to say no to someone else dream. After wearing a bow tie for a few weeks there was a day when the weather would not permit anyone to go out and get another bow tie so Hayes had to learn how to turn the regular ties that he already had into bow ties so that he could continue to participate in Bow Tie Monday.

During workshops and seminars Derrick Hayes started to share and teach them how to tie regular ties and also how to turn them into bow ties and the impact and feedback from men, women and children was incredible.

Now Derrick Hayes has branded himself as the “enTIEtainer” since he has added new tie tying techniques to his seminars, workshops, routines and Stand Up Encouragement sessions like tying one behind his back and turning it around to show others how to overcome adversity. 2 Chainz vs 2 Ties is a tribute to Hip Hop and Tauheed Epps who is known professionally as 2 Chainz (formerly known as Tity Boi) that inspires others to look as fashion as a way to lift themselves up when they fall. Harvey was inspired by the events that took place in Houston, Texas where the “enTIEtainer” takes the socks off his feet and turns them into a Bow Tie right before your eyes.

The “enTIEtainer” is available to perform and uplift audiences at schools, colleges, corporations, meetings, events, concerts, festivals, clubs, casinos, churches, carnivals and other venues where people need a positive vibe.
