The Inventors Workshop


Good morning!


My name is Corky Newcomb from Wolfeboro, N.H. and I am offering my presentation How To Create Inventions and Turn Them Into Gold to students in schools and colleges.  This presentation leads naturally into Inventors Workshops, where students are challenged to dream up new solutions to everyday challenges.

For most groups, the Inventors Workshops take between one and six hours, are fun, creative and a day they will always remember. A typical session looks like this:

  • Introduction to Invention – Thinking Big

  • Challenge to Think Big: Tools and Techniques to make inventions happen..

  • Stories about how I created and marketed over 40 of my inventions.

  • Make your idea into something: The Workshop

[ break ]

  • Marketing your idea – How to take your idea and excite those about it, too!

  • How to get your idea ON and OFF the shelf.  Excite. Inspire. Motivation.

  • Patents, Licensing, Risk, Fear, Serendipity, Co-Lab-Bor-A-Tion

  • Problems to Solve, Needs to Be Met and What You’re Going to Do About It.

  • Pitching your idea, voting and awards to the winners.

Through guided discovery, I help students find their own path to their invention, think on how it would be made, marketed and sold. Invention teams create their own inventions in record time and then each team pitches their idea to the class. Votes are then cast and a winning team is awarded prizes.

Students will leave the invention creation session with the belief and confidence that they can create inventions on demand very quickly which help them find a job in any growing company.  It’s truly amazing to see their transformation and how they light up knowing that they are inventors and control their destiny.

I believe the future of the USA depends on innovation and your students creativity is the strength of the U.S.A.  It is just as important as all of the other subjects your school is teaching them. If they cannot find a job when they graduate, they will be able to start their own company making and marketing their inventions.

I would appreciate the opportunity to speak with you about this amazing experience I can offer your students. I will challenge them to open their minds to new possibilities, and encourage them to follow their dreams. I can be reached on (603) 520-5178 or [email protected], and look forward to hearing from you. Thank you very much.

Best of health and luck!

"Even as an advanced golfer, I have had lots of fun playing in NITELITE golf tournaments. I was unbelievably shocked to find a golfball that was as soft as the LITE4NITE is. A lighted golf ball I can hit 300 yards and find in the dark is pretty cool to me. To see the way these lighted golf balls react around the greens is astonishing. As most golfers know, you have no game unless you have a short game and with the LITE4NITE golf balls you have the entire package. Now you can use one ball to play it all. I would recommend these awesome lighted golf balls to any golfer who is looking to play more golf and have more fun. That includes making more pars, more birdies and just maybe a HOLE-IN-ONE!"

Tyler Nadeau

Assistant Golf Professional
Barrington, N.H.

"The new LITE4NITE golfball is the LONGEST and MOST accurate golfball made for twilight and nighttime play and fun. Amateurs and pros will love how this lighted golfball hits, feels, sounds, spins and bites the greens. It's Awesome to be able to now hit a lighted golfball 400 yards and then find my ball waiting to be putted. Best of luck on and off the course."

Kevin Bullard

Nine Time Long Drive Champion

"The LITE4NITE golfballs are quite frankly THE BEST lighted golfballs in history. They play as well as any ball on the market today. You sacrifice NOTHING playability wise compared to the top names of golfballs. Plus the fact, these amazing lighted golfballs are easy to follow, find and light up Forever! I will be able to put more rounds through my golf course and extend my TWILIGHT LEAGUES with the LITE4NITE golfballs which = more $$$$$."

Justin Barkley

Meredith, N.H.

"My group has used NITELITE golf balls every Sunday morning for over 20 years. They get us out before the crowds, before the sun comes up and allow us to play fast. The new LITE4NITE golf balls feel and play just like the best brands of golf balls so we have moved back a tee. It is very simple to see how theLITE4NITE golf balls will increase revenue at my golf course."

Bill Stine

President and CEO
Kissimmee, Florida

"All of my members love the new LITE4NITES. We always play the forward tees and with the old lighted balls no one could drive any par 4s. This year we heard a lot of golfers saying they drove a few greens and even had one guy drive over the green. I would definitely recommend the new LITE4NITE golf balls to any golf course that is thinking of hosting a night tournament. We are already looking forward to the next one!"

Carl Ste-Marie, PGA

General Manager
The Country Club at Lake City
Lake City, FL 32055

"I hit 10 new LITE4NITE golfballs on the green with my 7 iron from 175 yards. I then hit my FIRST drive and this fantastic lighted golfball went 305 yards landing only 9 feet from the pin! I told Corky Newcomb to take a photo of it because that would be my best drive today. I will play the LITE4NITE golfball morning, noon, twilight and night because it hits, feels, reacts, putts and sounds just like the best golf balls made. Plus the fact that it lights up FOREVER!" We held our second HOLES FORE HUNGER LITE4NITE tournament which raised funds to feed over 100 local school children on the weekends.

"Distance and feel are no longer a problem with LITE4NITE golf balls. These lighted balls perform predictably just like their non-glowing counter parts."

Todd McKittrick

Head Golf Professional
Manchester, N.H.

"LITE4NITE golf balls are very playable, feel and sound great. They fly the same distance as PRO V1s and, in fact, some of my shots went further. These incredible golf balls drive much further than all other lighted golf balls by at least 20 to 100 yards depending upon which club you are using. There is no question that LITE4NITE golf balls are the longest and brightest lighted golf balls made. They play just like real golf balls because they are real golf balls."

Paul Tessier

Head Golf Professional
Moultonboro, N.H.

"The new LITE4NITE golf balls have surprisingly great feel around the greens. I was able to control my ball flight with my irons and the distance off the tee was comparable to other leading golf balls on the market. I think I will be playing more golf in the twilight and at night in the future."

Greg Sampson

Swansea, Mass.

"The new LITE4NITE golf balls are by far the most realistic illuminated ball I have ever hit. Night golf tournaments are a member favorite at my golf course and I would not use any other lighted golf ball. We will be able to put more rounds through our golf course in the spring and fall with the invention of the LITE4NITE golf balls and our summer TWILIGHT LEAGUES can now be extended in the summer."

Mike Uhlman

Head Golf Professional
Moultonboro, N.H.

"The new LITE4NITE golf ball feels and reacts just like a regular golf ball. It is amazing to me that other than being in the twilight or dark, it is hard to tell that it is not the number one golf ball used by PGA Tour players."

Gordon Swennes

Director of Golf/Head Golf Professional
Rye, N.H.

"The Lite4Nite golf ball plays as well as any golf ball on the market... The Lite4Nite golf ball can extend your twilight round without changing your club selections... If you're playing twilight golf, you have to carry the Lite4Nite golf ball in your bag"

Mike Ryan
