Biographical Sketch

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.

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 others how to tie regular ties and the impact and feedback was incredible because many men, women and children were learning a new life skill for the first time.

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 a tie behind his back to illustrate that no matter how far behind you get your life and your season can still turn around for you.

The “enTIEtainer” teaches people about networking and building relationships by bringing two ties to together to show that if they can come together than we can also come together.

When the “enTIEtainer” Derrick Hayes heard about Hurricane Harvey in Houston, Texas he was inspired to take the socks off his feet and turn them into a bow tie live on stage to create the mindset in others that sometimes in order to do something you have never done you have to believe you can do something that you have never seen before.

The “enTIEtainer” is available to perform and uplift audiences and since he began using ties to tell stories and empower others his tie tying techniques have been seen at such events as No Shame Theatre, Current State of the Black Man (Montgomery, Alabama), Richards Middle School, B.I.L.D. Friday Night Lights, A. J. McClendon YMCA, Albany State University, Shaw High School Basketball (Awards Banquet), Shaw High School Football, Shaw High School (Wrestling Banquet), Columbus State University Basketball Team, Columbus Fall League, St. Mary's Road United Methodist Church, Reach For Your Dreams Back To School Bash, Rantoul High School Track Team (Illinois), Beechwood Baptist Church Back To School Bash (Nashville, TN), Kappa League of Columbus, Georgia, 321 Anti Bullying Rally, Andrew Adams Football Camp (College Park, Georgia), Buena Vista Recreation Football Camp, Cobb County Juneteenth, Family Reunion (Front Royal, Virginia), Family Reunion (Hilton Head, South Carolina), Columbus Georgia Parks and Recreation, Friendship Baptist Church, Club Martini’s on Broadway, Middle Tennessee State University, Tennessee State University, Mildred Terry Library, University of Missouri Kansas City Basketball Team, Hardaway High School, WOE Man Show (Brooklyn, New York) and many others.
