"Finding a speaker able to engage an audience so intently that they don’t reach for their iPhones or tablets is a huge challenge.  Habitual hyper-productivity is the result of the ability to post, text, and tweet, all while returning emails and calls from handheld devices. Bill delivers relevant material in a refreshing and entertaining way that holds the attention of these highly productive individuals. Intuitively aware of his audience at all times, Bill exercises fluidly with topics when needed and creates a dialogue amongst participants. His interactive sessions inspire attendees with new perspectives as well as actionable principles."
