Speech Topics

No One Can Stop You, But You

Does your organization have a culture of accountability? When something goes wrong, does everyone start pointing fingers and making excuses? How much more productive would your organization be if everyone took responsibility for their mistakes and shortcomings and continuous improvement was a team effort? Walter Bond delivers a solid message of personal accountability, overcoming adversity, power of confidence and pursuit of excellence to the highest degree. Your organization will be rocked with enthusiasm, inspired to work as a team and motivated to achieve to the highest level regardless of the stock market, mortgage crisis or credit crunch. This extraordinarily popular program helps audience members to point the finger at themselves in a fun and safe way. When your audience leaves, they will know they have been bonded by Mr. Accountability. They'll return to their careers with the motivation and skills to take responsibility for their own continuous improvement.

Sell It Like You Mean It!

Whether you're looking to get your sales teams year off to a fast start, give it a mid-year jolt, or fire it up to finish the year with momentum, this program is full of principles that will empower your sales professionals to be re-energized with passion, desire and commitment regardless of their success levels. You might have a team of high producers that have flat-lined or maybe your whole team needs to crank it up. Either way, you need your sales force to outthink and outperform the competition and win big in the sales game. Mr. Accountability believes that some sales people are born but most of them are made. So Walter teaches every member of your team how to overcome objections, incorporate storytelling, and establish him or herself as an expert. As a result, they stop selling and start influencing your customers to buy! This program will inspire your sales team to produce at the next level.

Dominate Right Where You Are

Do your employees enthusiastically pursue the pinnacle of excellence? More likely they're looking to reach the next level and just chasing their next promotion. Let Walter prove that the key to getting ahead lies in their current situation. He explains, "If you dominate right now, right where you are, your superiority will become so obvious that new opportunities and promotions will chase you!" Inspired by Mr. Accountability, every attendee will find new ways to own and pursue excellence in what they do. As a result, employees return to work truly engaged and motivated to attain higher levels of productivity.

Are You Still Unstoppable?

Has the culture of accountability in your organization kept growing as fast as it did right after Walter’s first keynote? When you want Mr. Accountability to rekindle the fires of enthusiasm for personal responsibility, book Walter for this encore performance. With fresh stories and engaging analogies, he introduces new techniques that strengthen every member of your team, as well as proven strategies that integrate accountability even more deeply into your operations—leaving your attendees motivated, inspired, and ready to take sustained action.

Leaders: Get Out of The Way!

Think about it for a moment—have you ever met a person that enjoys being bossed around? The most common form of leadership is micro-management—which is destructive, expensive and an organizational buzz kill. Most leaders micro-manage because they have never been sufficiently trained on “how to lead.” In this program, Walter teaches how to turn the destructive dangers of micro-management around with the fundamentals of leadership. Leaders learn the psychology of inspiring, motivating, and maintaining productive employees for years to come and how to empower employees to be accountable for what they do. As a result, employees feel engaged, inspired, and motivated, and leaders grow a culture of accountability that builds retention and productivity for years to come—which is nothing but good news for your bottom line!
