Making Your Event Memorable

Geoff Woliner dreamed of speaking in front of groups since he was in day care. He started by imagining breakout sessions titled, “Play-Doh: What they’re not telling you”, and, “5 steps to crushing your next coloring book”. He also lobbied to be the featured keynote at naptime.


But he finally got his chance when he grew up and embarked on his journey as a stand-up comedian, association professional, recruiter, team-builder, trainer and speechwriter. In those roles, Geoff saw one common theme emerge…most people had a negative relationship with their circumstances.


Whether it was a job, an interview, a speech, a presentation, or even a date…a lack of self-confidence ensured these moments never became great memories. So he started his company, Winning Wit, to write the type of content that would bring down any house, anywhere, anytime. And he wrote his first book, “Get Bitter to Get Better“, to give people a roadmap to get there. He penned his second, “The Gen X Code: How to keep your cool during the Coronavirus and other things that suck“, to help give people the coping mechanisms they need to manage the COVID-19 crisis with their sanity intact. Mostly, at least.


Over the past 20 years, Geoff has written for and coached over 3,000 individuals across the globe, as well as led over 300 workshops for organizations of all sizes, giving them the tools to crush their big moments and create lasting memories. He would be honored to do the same for yours.

Event Keynote/Host

Bringing your crowd to their feet!

You’ve got a big event coming up, and you need a speaker to ensure the night flows smoothly.

So, you weigh your options:

  • Have a member of the board host the event, and hope people enjoy the funniest jokes from 1985
  • Break the bank for a five minute celebrity appearance
  • Hire a professional comedian who will light up the room, make your speakers look great, and keep the event energetic and lively

The choice is clear, isn’t it? Go with the board member. 80’s jokes were the best.

But if you’re still not sold on that idea and want a professional, let’s chat!

Geoff Woliner



When Geoff Woliner was 10 years old, he was asked to deliver a toast for his grandfather’s 80th birthday. A few years shy of his first Toastmasters meeting, he didn’t have a clue what to say and had to wing it. So he delivered a Dean Martin-style roast that had his grandfather and everyone in the room in stitches. And on that cold, snowy November day, a comedian was born.

Geoff went onto a comedy and speaking career spanning nearly 20 years, being named Stand-up NY’s “Funniest Person from Queens” and leading public speaking workshops for hundreds of organizations throughout North America. He’s currently the Founder and CEO of Winning Wit, a speech writing and presentation coaching service that helps others unleash their inner performers and light up the room.
