Bill was charismatic, entertaining, engaging, and on point. His stories tied in perfectly with our theme – this was thanks to Bill taking the time to consult with us prior to the event to tailor his performance to our event. He is a marvelous storyteller, and his stories were all relevant and educational. Our leaders have already begun quoting Bill – he was really terrific. Can’t recommend him highly enough!

Bill was sensational. He was able to easily grasp the focus we had as a business and then mould this into a very informative session that has them spellbound. The feedback from the 80 Managers has been brilliant.
As you would have gathered by the applause you received, your presentation was a winner. The first speaker at a conference sets the tone for the rest of the conference, and from the feedback I received, it was the best conference we have delivered.

Bill's talk was incredibly engaging, with relevant examples and meaningful stories. Our conference lasted a day and a half, but Bill's hour and a half was by far the stand-out -- some of the team have already changed some of their sales tactics.
The presentation provided by Bill was excellent. His ability to tie that relationship between coach and athlete and then demonstrate the relevance in a business perspective was a key driver in that success.
