“You took the near impossible task I gave you and parlayed it into the best program my group has ever seen. I knew this could be a hard crowd to please, but you had them at hello! It was a resounding success, as evidenced by the enthusiastic standing ovation at the conclusion. We are all still talking about your perfect keynote!”

Bill truly customizes each program — often incorporating your attendees’ own success stories — to make sure his message is relevant and on-target.


Bill has great keynotes and great breakout programs, so you can get way more value for your investment!


Rather than being a distraction, Bill’s movie star good looks actually enhance the educational and entertainment value of his programs!*

Meeting professionals just like you routinely say that Bill is one of the easiest-to-work-with speakers they’ve ever hired.

Bill’s programs create buzz before, during, and after your event. They are an experience — an experience your attendees will remember and talk about!

*Please remember that “movie star good looks” is a subjective term. Very subjective. Also, please remember that, technically, Yoda is a movie star.
