Bill Cole is a speech writer and presentation
coach to politicians, professional speakers and trainers, executives,
business professionals, educators and everyday folks who just
want to give a good speech and not break out in a sweat.
Bill has been featured as an expert presentation coach in Presentations
Magazine, the most important speaking magazine in the world,
in the article, First Aid For Podium Emergencies.
They interviewed Bill on how to coach speakers to handle the many
problems that can happen in a presentation.
There are presentation coaches who used to speak in the old days,
but who don't anymore. Or those who teach college theory courses,
but who don't know how to coach one-on-one. Or those who can take
a speaker to the Dale Carnegie / Toastmasters level, but not beyond.
(We think both Dale Carnegie and Toastmasters are wonderful, by
the way). If this level coach is what you want and need, then
you're all set. But there are many levels of presentation coaches.
The question is this: How good do you want to be, and how fast
do you want to get there?
Bill practices what he preaches. He travels regularly on the pro
speaking circuit giving keynotes, workshops and seminars, speaking
at state and national conventions, corporate events and for professional
groups. His one-hour keynote fee is $6,500. He was a member of
the Board of Directors of the National Speakers Association (Northern
California) for two years. For seven years he appeared in the
honor rolls of Who's Who In Professional Speaking.
Bill was hired as the head speech writer and presentation coach
to famed Silicon Valley SnapTrack CEO and Founder Steve Poizner,
who is ranked in the top six of all-time Silicon Valley CEO's,
since selling his company to Qualcomm for $1 billion. You may
recognize the name Steve Poizner from the extensive television
and radio advertising during his political campaigns. You may
also recognize that he is the newly-elected 2007 California State
Poizner ran for the State Assembly in California in 2004 and was
one of a handful of politicians who were endorsed by "The California
Governator", Arnold Schwarzenegger. Bill crafted the content and
staging for Poizner's speeches, debates, TV and radio spots and
Steve had this to say about Bill's presentation consultation:
"Bill, thank you for your excellent writing, coaching and guidance
with my speeches and presentations. Your help was invaluable in
my political campaign."
Bill was also a Speechwriter and Presentation Coach to Steve Poizner
when he was the California State Insurance Commissioner. Poizner
ran in the Republican primary for California State Governor in
2010, against former eBay CEO Meg Whitman.
