Corpening Personal Development

Since 2000, Corpening Personal Development (CPD) is actively involved and plays a significant role to develop and empower the youth within the greater Wilmington, NC area and nationally.  CPD is well-known and praised for excellence in children’s educational training, motivational speaking, and student and educator workshops.

As an author, speaker, coach, and consultant Travis Corpening has spent more than 20 years in the trenches working for the personal development and educational improvement of students in schools, colleges, and universities.

Corpening Personal Development challenges you to LIVE everyday knowing you were CHOSEN for a greater purpose.

—— OUR MISSION

“To improve outcomes and help people reach personal, professional, or academic goals through speaking, training, and creating educational resources for personal development”.

We believe that all kids can have ideas that are important and affect their world in cool and exciting ways. Millions have been inspired by our message and watching Travis’s YouTube training videos.

We love connecting with schools and are actively advocating for the improvement of the education of our kids in North Carolina Schools.

Why do I need a Coach?

—— Everyone needs a mentor or coach, no matter the age.

Coaching is helping you plan and maneuver barriers to accomplish your personal goals. Period. Today many of us are subjected to negative influences, toxic environments, and a lack of healthy opportunities to grow.
