  • Recruit and retain the right talent at the right time for maximum results
  • Transform lower performing individuals into top team players
  • Drive loyalty to the team and pride of belonging
  • Design a framework for powerful teamwork
  • Build a team chemistry that bonds

 


National VP - Franchise Services Little Caesar Enterprises

You were absolutely the talk of the show...As a veteran of many conferences as both host and attendee, I can say without a doubt that I have never seen a message more perfectly tailored for a company or audience than the message you prepared for us. You hit every note we asked for.....My sincerest thanks for taking the time to make sure your message fit our needs. Too often a speaker just delivers their "usual talk". You made good on every promise!

President - Americas Hilton Worldwide Inc.

I found all the general sessions informative and relevant to my needs. The final speaker, Walter Bond was the highlight of the conference for me, putting accountability into a different perspective.

Michael M. Pierce, Senior Vice President - District Director, Allianz

"Walter, it was great getting to know you. You did a great job! I took three pages of notes, so thank you for that. I look forward to our future events. Great Job and Thanks."

Meeting Planner, Associate Director Facilities Management - University of Alberta

"This is the 4th time that I have been able to listen to Walter Bond and it is refreshing to listen to him every time. Well done Walter! See you soon."

Meeting Planner - Fifth Third Bank

"No one came expecting him... everyone left talking about him!!! "WALTER BOND... HE WAS AWESOME!" The best speaker we've had.... and we've had a lot of them... hands down! If he can impress our group, he can impress anyone! The true testament to a speaker is the response from the audience. Our conference attendees continue to rave about Walter. In our post-conference survey, Walter received a perfect "5" from all 80 people responding to the survey."

Franchisee - Evergreen Basement Systems

"Walter Bond is energetic and speaks directly to the heart of each individual. Sprinkled with humor and stories, his message comes through clear and it sticks. His presentations, audios and DVDs remain key “mojo” builders that our sales team uses again and again."
