A Transformational Experience
What makes Jay Wilkinson the exceptional choice as a leader, motivator and speaker are the same qualities that made him a successful business executive and CEO, a highly-regarded presidential and gubernatorial aid, and a first-team All-American football player.
Values • Preparation • Attitude • Perseverance
Greatness runs in the Wilkinson family. Jay’s father, Bud Wilkinson, was one of the greatest coaches in college football history. His Oklahoma University team’s won three national championships and at one time captured 47 straight victories, a record that remains untouched and a mark that symbolizes the pinnacle of achievement in sport.
Bud Wilkinson’s leadership abilities were highly sought away from athletic fields of endeavor by world-renowned figures in every walk of life, including two U.S. presidents…on both sides of the political aisle.
But above all things, Bud Wilkinson was a caring father and it was his letters to Jay while his son attended college at Duke University that prepared the son to achieve greatness in his own life.
It is the wisdom, guidance and love contained in those “Letters from Bud” that Jay uses today to infuse in his audiences a sense of purpose, integrity, commitment and passion; and to guide people to an understanding that every individual has the ability to become a transformational leader through the transformational experience of Winning the Wilkinson Way.
A Perfect Gift for Fathers and Football Fans
Jay's book contains nearly four dozen letters legendary college football coach Bud Wilkinson wrote to his son Jay. In these letters, Bud puts forth--and Jay explains--the tenets of the Wilkinson philosophy, as relevant today as when the letters were written.
