“You can speak well if your tongue can deliver the message of your heart.” - John Ford

Do you want a different kind of speaker?  One who challenges your people to think and behave differently?  In a way that helps them figure out their superpowers, get out of their own way, and fully step into the role they have the potential for?

And do you want to have a ton of fun while we do it?

Fear is at the root of everything that stands in the way of our potential.  The antidote is courage. People with courage no longer shy away from difficult conversations, they aren’t afraid to share their valuable opinions, they take appropriate risks, they admit when they are wrong and fix their mistakes.

While Billy’s upbeat, interactive speaking style consistently gets the attention of his audiences and keeps them engaged with this important message, his personal experiences and credentials have made him an expert on courage and provide an extremely informative core to his talks.
