FLORIDA’S WIZARD ROLLS OUT WIZARD UNIVERSITY
An Unconventional School Combines
Entertainment, Science & Self-Improvement
St. Petersburg, FL January 4, 2010 – Just in time for New Year’s resolutions, longtime Florida entrepreneur C. Russell Brumfield, also known as The Wizard to Fortune 500 companies and Orlando hotels for two decades, announces his newest venture - Wizard University, an unconventional school for personal and professional achievement currently offering free introductory courses to its students.
Wizard University is rolling out its program with two free and unique events in January. The 2½ day Million $$ Mind Shift Intensive will be held at the Doubletree International Plaza Hotel on I-Drive – January 15-17. And Wizard University's free 2½ hour Self-Discovery Workshops will be held throughout Orlando in January. See www.wizarduniversity.biz
After a year in research & development and the participation of hundreds of Florida residents seeking to turn their lives around, Brumfield’s team discovered a successful new approach to personal development with the combination of entertainment, science, multi-sensory behavior modification, and ancient wisdom principles.
Brumfield began his career as a caterer, executing over 1,000 weddings in the 1980s, then founded Wizard Studios in Tampa Bay in 1990 and Wizard Connection with partner Sue Bender in Orlando in 1995, producing large events and entertainment for Fortune 500 companies such as Pfizer, NFL, Chrysler, Citigroup, MTV, Sony, and many others. He expanded his services to include sales performance, incentives and training over the years, and the Wizard companies now execute over 2,000 events each year with locations in Tampa, Orlando, Naples, New York, LA, and Puerto Rico.
Brumfield retired from the operation of the company six years ago at 43 and traveled extensively. A lifetime student of philosophy, spirituality and science, he became an expert in multi-sensory behaviors and wrote the Amazon bestseller Whiff: The Revolution of Scent Communication in the Information Age (Quimby Press 2008).
After observing the simultaneous collapse of the global economy and the skyrocketing boom of the self-improvement industry (from $8 billion to $12 billion since 2006), Brumfield saw a unique opportunity to incorporate years of study in Neuro-Linguistic Programming, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, and behavior modification with his expertise in multi-sensory behavior mod and "edutainment" (education through entertainment). With many of these modalities, he developed the foundation of Wizard University. Brumfield’s lifelong passion has been to help others help themselves, and he plans to reach many more people with his new venture.
Wizard University offers seminars, courses, intensives and support groups for students with challenges in finances, relationships, weight loss and many other areas of personal achievement - as well as courses in business, Internet marketing, sales and career advancement.
