About Skip Carney

Skip Carney grew up in Statesville, NC, as the oldest of five children. His dad was a popular radio announcer and TV host and, later, a Nationwide Insurance agent. He encouraged Skip and his siblings to “make yourself useful.” Mom was busy raising and guiding five children. Her philosophy was “can’t never could do nothing.” Profound, if not grammatically correct. Growing up with this foundation, Skip entered broadcasting in high school and worked his way to a degree in Radio, TV & Motion Pictures at the University of North Carolina. Radio took him to Charlotte, then Wilson, and finally Rocky Mount, North Carolina, where he decided to put down roots and start his business. Rocky Mount has been home ever since. He is married to Karen and they have three daughters … Jessica, Kathryn and Spencer Grace … and four grandchildren.

Whether you are looking for a keynote address on Marketing Innovation or a half day workshop, Skip Carney will entertain, inform, and inspire your team with his Marketing Innovation message and ReVision™ process. Mr. Carney teaches companies how to make their committees creative, productive, and focused while being more strategic and innovative. The topic is as appropriate for Fortune 500 companies as it is start-ups and small businesses bootstrapping their way to the next level.
