SVP, Fifth Third Bank

I’ve been through some great educational programs offered at my prior employer, General Electric, including sponsored courses at Harvard Business School, but this was by far the most intensive one day, high impact, thought-provoking session I've been engaged by in my career.

Director, Oracle University

Bill energized the 800 Oracle University attendees at our annual meeting. His “on the mark” comments reinforced our strategy of just-in-time education and its relevance to a simpler work environment. He was humorous, while instilling in the crowd a sense of urgency. People from that session are still quoting him!

P&G

Bill's session was the BEST WE'VE EVER HAD! Simple, clear, actionable content. Fabulous! Smooth, knowledgeable, fun. Bill is a treasure!

Step2 Events and Meetings Stockholm, Sweden

Bill’s presentation was perfect! He tailored it to our audience’s needs, really having the Swedish Post in mind. Our seminar is one of the most prestigious held in Scandinavia. His stories and tools made it one of our most engaging presentations yet. It was also a joy to work with Bill behind the scenes, in preparation for the event.
