Boyd Hamlin – International speaker and trainer, coach, author of “The Hero Builder” character growth program eliminating bad behavior
Boyd Hamlin wants to change the world!
In order to do that, he knows that he must be intentional about changing his own world daily. He brings an energy and vision into everything he does in hopes of making a lasting impact on others. It’s been said that, “everything rises and falls on leadership”, and Boyd knows that leadership rises and falls on character. His desire is to encourage, equip and empower others to take what they believe and put it into action.
Boyd graduated from Ozark Christian College with a BBL and focused in youth ministry. After graduating and spending his college years in weekend youth ministries, he turned his focus towards a full-time youth position in Tulsa, Ok. After developing a service based program that he called, ‘Service With A Purpose’, that helped students discover, develop and deliver on their talents and purpose, he began speaking at youth conferences for a non-profit organization in the USA. After 7 years in his first youth position, he took a position to develop youth programs and focus on middle school aged students in the panhandle of Texas. While growing that program to over 1,000 students and still speaking at youth conferences, he decided to spend more time at home influencing the 2 boys in his world that mattered deeply to him.
In 2005, Boyd made a transition from youth work to church planting for a time to quickly discover he was outside of his sweet spot and returned to youth and those who influence youth.
He is the creator of ‘The Hero Builder’ character growth program that helps elementary and middle school students put character in action. He is an award winning speaker for Toastmasters and has coached others to do the same. He has delivered 3 speeches at the International Maxwell Conference, having shared the stage with Les Brown, John Maxwell and team. He was nominated in 2018 for a John Maxwell Cultural Award.
Having experienced a test in his own character development, he knows just how significant character growth is as your life’s foundation. He is passionate about helping you make your foundation solid.
Persistence is a word to describe who he is. He never gives up on himself or you as you grow in your journey. Through 2 brain surgeries and having transverse myelitis, he never settles, but keeps moving forward. He embraces his personal challenges and pushes the boundaries of becoming better than yesterday’s best. Boyd will do that for you, too.
Boyd has proudly been married to Melanie for 27 years and has 2 boys that are now grown and thriving in life. His oldest serves in the Air Force and his youngest is pursuing the film industry.
