Here’s what some of Bill’s clients have said about Bill’s presentations.
You were one of our highest rated speakers at the national conference. Feedback on your session was very positive -- the content was relevant, actionable and delivered in a fresh, fun and provocative style that kept the audience engaged and entertained.
In fact, your session created enough buzz with attendees that we chose to use the session simulcast in our promotion for this year’s conference as an example of the type of speakers and sessions attendees can expect. You are a true professional and an absolutely pleasure to work with. I look forward to having the opportunity to work with you again.
Gail McHardy -- Director, Conference and Events,
Canadian Society of Association Executives
Bill Hogg was one of the highest rated speakers and the speaker most requested for a return engagement at our annual conference. He communicated sophisticated leadership and management concepts in a way that was easily understood and could be put into practice.
Jena L. Hoffman -- President & CEO
International Ticketing Association (INTIX)
I recommended Bill for an important client’s annual conference and they were “blown away” (their words) with what he did. In the post-event feedback, his sessions scored at the top of the list of what attendees had enjoyed most -- and they have brought him back for 4 consecutive years.
Libby Lucas, Lucas Creative Services
Bill’s keynote address was a high point of our Annual Conference. It was surprising, funny and inspirational, but he also challenged assumptions that resulted in fresh, actionable ideas that are building stronger teams and creating loyal customer relationships.
Nelson Lang -- Founder, Pita Pit International
Bill voiced a dilemma I was going through as a manager and I knew what I had to do for my team before I left his session.
Odette Nader, Dancap Productions
Bill “gets it” and has a remarkable ability to connect in a meaningful way with all staff, including teenagers (there’s a challenge for you).
David Bednar -- General Manager, Canadian National Exhibition
Bill is an exceptional speaker and knows how to get people excited about customer service. Our company first hired Bill 2 years ago. After his presentation he received a standing ovation, and we received numerous requests to bring him back. Of course we hired Bill again this year and dedicated a full-day. Again, he was fantastic!
John Going -- Vice President of Operations, PRO-TAX
We found Bill’s presentation enlightening, powerful and entertaining. It has broadened our understanding of the culture that we are trying to develop within our business and also the functional means of enhancing our Pit Crew and customer experience. Bill’s ability to entertain a group and harness their energy is first rate and an experience not to be missed.
Denise Andrews -- 2011 Franchise of the Year, Pita Pit New Zealand
Attending a corporate conference where Bill’s presentation was a major part, in one simple, relevant and easy to understand example, he convinced me that performance in business is not a differentiator, but simply an expectation. He rapidly showed me his strategy for generating loyalty in my brand and work, and how the absence of those steps can lead to an easy road of ruin. You certainly generated loyalty from me and I gladly look forward to our next meeting!
Peter Sintic, Net Positive Financial
Bill’s message was powerful, simple and to the point. He has a great presence on stage which kept everyone engaged and I left with a strengthened resolve to implement the strategies he discussed. I would definitely recommend Bill if you need a crucial message delivered with clarity and passion.
William Eden, Eden Concessions Ltd.
Recently I had the pleasure of listening to Bill’s presentation at our annual CAFE Convention in Calgary. It was humorous but yet very informative and enlightening. The information was diversified for all walks of life and will suit all demographics of the workplace. I would strongly recommend Bill as a Speaker at any function.
Penny Sandercock -- President, Yorkton Exhibition
Passion was the focal point of the presentation. Bill talked about passion – to make us aware how we can improve as Managers and how we can ignite the passion within our employees. We all deal with different attitudes in the work place but the eventual goal is to keep everyone engaged in the growth of the company for a better experience not only for our customers but for the employees as well.
Bill has the answers, don’t be afraid to ask him the questions.
Reynaldo deGuzman -- President, Ontario Professional Ticketing Association
A very inspiring seminar with lots of great & real tips that you can start using immediately
Scott Gainsburg -- VP Visitor Service & Volunteers, Luminato
Bill delivered an engaging and down to earth presentation that was completely relevant to the current workplace dynamics.
Carol Ann Loree, General Motors Centre
Bill is down to earth, fun, and very knowledgeable. His advice was not cliché statements but real specific advice to help us succeed.
Zaya Oshana, Franchisee, Pita Pit Canada
Bill manages to get buy-in and agreement in a fun, open & inclusive manner.
Eamonn O’Loghlin -- Director of Strategic Partnerships, Canadian National Exhibition
Bill’s presentation changed the way that I think about my customers and the way we approach customer service. It helped my business tremendously!
Serafino Iantorno -- Broker, State Farm Insurance
Bill, it was such great fun having you as a guest speaker at our Manager’s Meeting. I’ve never seen this group so completely energized – and they were still energized when I spoke with them the following week!
I was most impressed with the fact that MANY managers wanted you to do a “regional” training for our CSRs! To my knowledge, that request has never been made of any of our guest speakers! Thank you sooooooooooooo much!
Gina Edwards -- Director of Support and Facilities, PRO-TAX
We originally hired Bill in 2009 as the keynote speaker for a cross Canada tour for our entire sales force as part of an increased focus on customer service excellence and building engagement with our retail partners. Since that time we have had Bill return numerous times. Bill continuously brings new insight and thought leadership to our sessions and has the ability to challenge and provoke new thinking – all while entertaining with personal stories and real life examples that demonstrate his points and leaving a lasting impression with the audience. In fact, we videotaped some of his sessions to be used as part of the on-boarding of new people starting with the organization to ensure they hear the message as well.
Curtis Scaplen -- Commercial Approach Leader, RBH Inc.
A dynamic speaker that changed my definition of customer service.
