There ain’t nothin’ Bill John can’t do. Seriously. If you asked him to make a rocket out of a palm tree, it might take him a while, but he’d find a way. Bill’s one of those guys who’s just naturally good at things. Athletics. Business. Inventing. He has seen the world and it has seen him. After almost 30 years of standing in front of groups… expect his best and you won’t be disappointed. Bill cooked up this Odyssey many moons ago and has found a way to keep improving with every client and group he stares down. Challenge him, trust him and then get out of the way and let him do his thing. You won’t be disappointed.
He calls himself the Head Dream Chaser and the fact is, everyone wants to be Lain Hensley’s friend and chase their own dreams alongside him. Lain is one of those rare people who sees what people often don’t see in themselves. The beautiful beginner. The sacred wonder. He’ll reveal your magic and he’ll get you to believe. He is generous, smart, and oriented to making things better. Lain has been seen on Fox Business and has written for Huffington Post, The Guardian, Successful Meetings and Entrepreneur Magazine. He tells his truth and people soak it up. After he kicked cancer’s ass a few years ago, he decided to step it up a notch. Hold onto your heart and your hat as Lain brings his best to each moment as he transforms your group and life.
Todd Demorest has had a life-long affair with the mischievous ingenuity of his own intention. He wakes up with it every morning. Takes it dancing through his work in life. And wraps his arms around it at home. For the past 30 years, he has affirmed, “I feel good today!”. He has shared his wisdom with the top brass of almost every company you can think of and has shown them that even if life is challenging, it has a brilliance that must be celebrated. With over 2 million miles with just one airline, he has seen it all and passes along straight talk about life, work, and business. His name has become a verb around the Odyssey HQ. It means to work with integrity and great detail. Todd does not miss anything and expects the very best of himself in everything he does.
Kim Clary’s smile and infectious laugh will be the first things to make you gravitate towards her, but it’s her ability to bring out the best in you that makes you want more. You will likely not even realize it’s happening. She is flat-out fun from start to finish. Kim is no beginner at giving back and making things better. She started a non-profit in her hometown of Santa Cruz-“THE CORE”-which focused on giving youth of the area a place to be safe and learn about life away from drugs and risky behaviors. There is actually an award named in her honor. Yup, she’s a pretty big deal. As Director of Client Success with Odyssey Teams, she fights for you and makes visions a reality because it’s just who she is and how she rolls.
