In addition, Bill is the author of The 5 Best Decisions the Beatles Ever Made...a Handbook for "Top of the Charts" Success, and the co-author of Humor Us: America's Funniest Humorists on the Power of Humor, both of which drive his valuable messages home to audiences.

His The Emmy Effect keynote, Bill shows you how he led his team to 10 straight years of #1 ratings and more than 100 Emmy Awards of their own. AND how can YOU get these kinds of results in your industry, with your team.

Bill knows how to use humor to get a message across more effectively. His customized keynotes, seminars, and workshops incorporate many personally embarrassing stories from his 20 years in television along with a strong message about the power of humor in everyday life and business.

As an emcee or keynoter, Bill uses custom-written humor to keep your event upbeat and on schedule – all the while keeping the spotlight on your organization, your attendees, and your award winners!

In his 15 years experience working as a humor coach, Bill worked with some of TV’s comedy greats like Jerry Seinfeld, Jay Leno. and Ellen Degeneres. Bill has written comedy for HBO, Comedy Central, NPR, and The Tonight Show Starring Jay Leno. As your humor coach, he will help you use your own sense of humor to make your point more effectively, have more fun, and make more money!

Bill is a professional member of the National Speakers Association (selected to keynote their national convention), and is also the self-proclaimed “Dumbest Guy in Mensa,” (he’s pretty sure the other members agree with his assessment). For the past seven years, he has been the co-owner of his own successful corporate training company whose hundreds of clients include State Farm Insurance, Boeing, American Airlines, Cornell University, Hewlett Packard, Nordstrom, IBM, Lucent Technologies, Oracle, Reuters, Lockheed Martin, Merck & Co., BMW, Paramount Pictures, Starbucks, and the CIA.

Bill is also an accomplished (accomplished being a relative term): musician, juggler, pilot, scuba diver, magician, and tennis player. Conversely, his golf game is a disaster.
