Extraordinary Visions: Celebrate What’s Right with the World!
Where do we find the vision to take our lives to the next level? How do we summon the passion to keep “raising the bar”? How can we make our life less of a struggle and more of a joy? For photographer and creativity expert, Dewitt Jones, the answers to these questions lie in the images we hold about ourselves, our future, and the way in which we grow. Extraordinary Visions is an hour of both motivation and inspiration. Using his own extraordinary photographs as illustrations, Dewitt weaves a visual tapestry of emotion and content. One that allows you to touch your own passion: to balance your head with your heart: and to come away inspired…with your own creative potential.

Clear Vision: Putting Your Creativity To Work
This classic presentation by Dewitt Jones explores the fundamentals of creativity. He explains just what these fundamental elements are, where they exist in each of us and how to access them. He helps audiences see the world with new eyes and shows them how to tap into and rediscover their own creative gifts. With his own exquisite photographs, Dewitt takes participants on a journey to rekindle and nurture the passion of their own creative potential. He builds a framework for personal creativity and gives audiences the tools to bring that creativity into every part of life.

Dare to Dance
A version of Dewitt’s “Extraordinary Visions” program customized for meetings in Hawaii. The themes of Vision, Passion, and Creativity are interlaced with stories and images drawn from Dewitt’s time in these beautiful isles. The presentation culminates with Dewitt telling a story of a hula troop from the tiny island of Molokai. To the surprise and delight of the audience, the girls of the halau join Dewitt on stage and bring his still images to life. Dewitt urges the audience to “Dare to Dance” in their own lives and ends the program joining the girls of the halau in a hula that brings down the house. It is the perfect keynote for any meeting you are planning in Hawaii.

Of course, we all focus on opportunities for improvement. To this end, if I could pass along any constructive criticism, I would - but we didn’t receive any! And, trust me, ours is a crowd generally full of constructive criticism.
