Everyday Influence

You Can Be An Ideal Leader

The Short List (In a life full of choices there are only four that matter)

Exceptional Customer Service

Your remarks were challenging and the audience was very responsive. In a hard charging business environment it is difficult to maintain perspective and your talk on “balance” was very appropriate in this regard. We look forward to a repeat opportunity in the future.

Walt Disney Company

We were impressed with his presentation style, content, and his ability to connect with the audience. The response we received from our convention attendees was overwhelmingly positive so we have asked Bill to return again this year. He is an outstanding communicator, versatile in his approach and content.
