Tony Barker - Speaker/Instructor

The thing that makes Martial Arts In The Workplace such a powerful presentation is the diversity of my background.  Here it is in manageable chunks:

BUSINESS/MANAGEMENT - In the late 80's I installed an automated production line in a manufacturing plant, retraining the workers without losing a single job in the process.  In both Corporate and "Mom-and-Pop" environments I've managed Radio stations, manufacturing facilities, tons of Special Events large and small, and run my own entertainment company for over a decade.

ENTERTAINMENT - I've done Stand-up Comedy, Morning Show Radio, Master of Ceremonies, and my own Seminars, as well as played Professional Music in a number of bands and styles, from solo acoustic "Songwriting" events* in high-end "Listening Rooms" to headlining Biker Festivals with my Country/Rock band.

TEACHING - I've taught First Aid and Adult CPR for the American Red Cross, Respiratory Safety for 3M, Forklift Operations for Caterpillar, Drivers Training for the U.S. Air Force, Performance and Songwriting Seminars (both my own and as a panelist for the Texas Music Coalition), and I'm currently an Instructor for Premier Martial Arts in Abilene, where I also serve as the Program Director.

Our school teaches a concept called "Black Belt Excellence".  It's a mindset that is almost universally applicable, teachable, and VERY powerful.  It's the central concept behind Martial Arts In The Workplace, and when introduced in a fun, upbeat way, has the potential to immediately impact the quality of life for those who incorporate it.

Please call or email today if you know of a group that can benefit from this kind of experience.  Thank you.
