Oprah Winfrey said it, after Ralph Hood appeared on her show. “Ralph, you are a funny man!”

Ralph Hood is a professional speaker, writer, humorist, teacher, commercial pilot, award-winning salesperson and motivator. He has entertained, taught, and inspired audiences from Hawaii to Spain and from Fairbanks to San Juan.

Talk about a speaker with credibilityundefinedsalespeople respect Ralph’s record as an airplane salesperson/sales manager. Educators respect his record of successful teaching at the college level. Writers respect his columns in four different publications and three books, and businesspeople respect the fact that he taught and writes about business.

Ralph became a Certified Speaking Professional after years in aviation sales. The son of a school superintendent and a college English teacher, he is an award-winning newspaper columnist who taught aviation management for Southern Illinois University. He is also a member of the Alabama Aviation Hall of Fame, though he currently lives in East Tennessee on the very edge of the Great Smoky Mountains.

Groups from America’s top corporations (IBM, Exxon and more) and associations have laughed with and learned from Ralph’s approach to life. He compares flying an airplane “On Top” of weather to living and working “On Top” of life’s problems. Fasten your seat belts, settle back and enjoy the ride as Ralph takes you for a trip “On Top” in his uniquely humorous style.

Besides, who are we to argue with Oprah Winfrey? Ralph Hood is a funny man!


Hope to see you there!
