Long Biography

Derrick Hayes is the #1 Encouragement Speaker and is internationally known for having the unique talent of turning name and words into positive messages within seconds right before your eyes. Hayes calls these Derricknyms.

At Tennessee State University he started his business as a freshman with three packs of hotdogs. Selling them to hungry students, Hot Dog Heaven was founded. Earning money on his own while in college gave Derrick the inspiration he needed to begin teaching other people how to run a business.

Before graduation Derrick realized that some students were not able to finish school because of financial hardships. This revelation inspired Derrick to help start The Wall of Excellence Scholarship and Development Fund that has helped raise over $500,000.00 so that College of Business students can continue and complete their education.
