Engaging and dynamic…you’d never know he has degrees in Mathematics and Computer Science!

Bill has a rare perspective – he has advanced degrees in Mathematics and Computer Science and has 25 years of real-world business experience as a senior leader including leadership coach and professional speaker. Bill brings a straightforward and practical look at how the brain responds under pressure, and he is very authentic about the fact that he struggled early in his career as a leader when he was under pressure. He shares how he has been able to apply the very same techniques he teaches to become a better leader (and father and husband) himself.

Bill has a degree in Mathematics with a major in Computer Science from the University of Waterloo. In addition to using his background in sales to motivate and inspire audiences, Bill leverages his Mathematics’ degree and technical background to take a scientific approach to helping leaders understand how to increase leadership and performance.

Prior to joining IHHP, Bill was Vice President of a computer software firm, leading the sales, consulting and marketing divisions. Under his leadership, the company grew from $2M in sales and a number 10 ranking in their industry, to over $75M in sales and the number 1 ranking.

His programs include:

“You really kept everyone’s attention with your great stories and analogies. Your passion for what you do is refreshing. Thank you for making the conference a truly inspiring event.” – Coca-Cola
