Testimonials

Bill Williams delivered an exceptional session to a group of emerging and new leaders.  It was truly a pleasure working with him as we only provided ambiguous information on the topic, and he delivered hitting the nail on the head!  He was very engaging through anecdotes, enthusiasm, and getting participants involved in a manner that was fun and enjoyable.  The response from all of the participants was outstanding and felt he provided practical nuggets, made you introspect, and linked profound connections that were relatable.  The participants truly felt energized and inspired after he left!  Thanks so much, Bill Williams, definitely looking forward to working with you again!

Electric Bill certainly is, electric.  I recently hired Bill Williams to speak to a group of senior executives at a retreat to help them re-energize their lives.  The tools and processes that Bill spoke about helped us do exactly that.  The session was full of laughter and dynamic energy that left us uplifted and inspired.  Working with Bill Williams was easy and fun and I highly recommend him and his book to anyone who wants to get more juice out of life.

Bill Williams’ twelve micro-steps provide important insights into who we are, why we are who we are, what we do, and how we do it—with a focus on lifelong learning, continuous improvement, and growth; to lead with humility, love, and service; and to work together to create value for the greater good. Very electrifying!

We were lucky to have Bill Williams join my Team meeting to introduce a few of the key lessons from his book. Bill is a professional and incredibly easy to work with. He had us engaged throughout the session and we walked away feeling more aware, empowered and motivated to do and be more. Bill always creates a very positive and uplifting energy – thanks for sharing it with us Bill!

There are so many great nuggets in Bill G. Williams’s book—in the tips and in the text—that I found myself often nodding (energetically!), feeling reminded and enlightened by the many performance messages that apply to all ambitious people.
