Meet Bill Cole, Your Presentation Skills Coach

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 Insurance Commissioner.

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 other appearances.

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.

Steve Poizner's new business is Encore Career Institute. Learn more about Steve Poizner on Wikipedia.
