Top Industry Leader Orrin Woodward Planning GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS Record
Orrin Woodward, author of And Justice for All, is taking a different approach to his next book signing. Rather than simply greeting his fans, he is attempting to set a GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS® title for the “Largest Book Signing” in history.
The event will take place in Columbus, Ohio, at the Nationwide Arena on June 21, 2014, beginning at 8:00 a.m. Mr. Woodward’s LIFE Leadership organization has recently partnered with Next Century Publishing through LIFE Leadership’s publishing arm, Obstaclés Press.
The current GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS® achievement for the most books signed at a single event is held by Sammy Lee from Hong Kong. On January 19, 2013, Mr. Lee signed a total of 4,649 copies of his book Autopilot Leadership Model in Shenyang, Liaoning, China. The feat spanned 13 hours, from 7:00 a.m. until 8:00 p.m. The actual signing time was recorded at 11 hours, 42 minutes, and 58 seconds, according to Guinness World Records Limited. The report can be found at https://www.guinnessworldrecords.com/world-records/1/largest-book-signing.
In order to set a new GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS® title, an individual must accomplish something that is truly noteworthy. To break the standing record for most books signed at a single event, Mr. Woodward will have to sign at least 4,650 copies of his book.
As Chairman of the Board for LIFE Leadership, Mr. Woodward represents both the organization and its publishing division, Obstaclés Press, in this endeavor. Recently named Number 20 of the Top 50 Leadership and Management Experts by Inc.com, Mr. Woodward will be supported at the book signing by his business partner Chris Brady, who was recently named Number 39 on the Top 50 list. More information about the Top 50 Leadership and Management Experts can be found on Inc.com.
Next Century Publishing is celebrating the new partnership with Obstaclés Press by providing sponsorship for the GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS® event. NCP will be on hand to help promote the day with CEO Ken Dunn and many of his staff there to provide support and cheer the author on to victory.
