Managing change and performance

INSPIRATIONAL AND INTERACTIVE LECTURES  FOR COMPANY EVENTS AND CONFERENCES
 
"William succeeded  in projecting the metaphor of climbing a mountain on entrepreneurship, in a very appealing manner. All the elements of 'good preparation' to achieve 'your goal', came along in his presentation. His enthusiasm during the seminar was stimulating and inspiring! "
 
Wim Kruyt – Director MeerBusiness Duin- en Bollenstreek - Dutch regional network and business platform – www.db.meerbusiness.nl
 
In my interactive presentations and lectures I talk about personal performance, managing risk and change, teamwork and leadership. The sessions are interactive and consist of my passionate story supported by stunning and spectacular photographs and film footage of my expeditions. A story to inspire people to change, improve and realize their dreams. In the story I intertwine the link to business insights from my management and consultancy expertise combined with the latest management literature creating a link to the work field of managers, directors and people on the work floor.  
 
Discuss with me the issues you come a across on a daily basis in your business or the goal of your meeting, seminar or event and I will put a lecture together that will support you in achieving that goal. The aim is to walk away after my lectures with inspiration and ideas that can you can apply to yourself, business or team the next day. Click here to contact me
