Bill has been delighted to spread his messages of entrepreneurship and philanthropy through numerous speaking engagements. If you would like to invite Bill to speak to your group, please read the information below, and contact us to discuss the possibilities.
Many business associations, law firms, investment companies, senior centers, nonprofits, and area colleges have hosted events with Bill and received tremendous positive feedback. To ensure an engaging and interactive experience, most programs are structured as either a Q&A or an interview followed by questions from the audience. Bill is always pleased to remain after the speaking portion to sign books for attendees.
We do not charge speaking fees, but have created just a couple of requirements for host organizations in order to maximize Bill’s limited time:
Please contact Cindy Canavan at email@example.com or 781-569-2344 with three or four possible dates and times to discuss as options.
Thank you for supporting Cummings Foundation in this way, as it helps spread the important message of philanthropy—and 100 percent of the book’s proceeds go to charity.
I have heard countless comments and compliments from alumni, faculty, staff and students about how inspiring your story is and the work that you have accomplished.
I’ve received nothing but positive feedback from those in attendance and the crowd seemed very happy.
It was probably the most interesting and most genuine ‘morning program’ I’ve been to in my 22 years of attending them (not just at McLane—across the board).
It was a real blessing to have you on campus, and I’ve already heard so much good feedback. We’ll hope for the chance to have you back on campus to speak to our students again.
In a one-hour session at Boston College, Bill inspired and challenged students from across disciplines with personal anecdotes that illustrate his entrepreneurial-spirit, frugality, and persistence… qualities that led him and his company to excellence. His business and philanthropic pursuits are an inspiration to students. His is a remarkable story and he conveys it in a comfortable and accessible manner.
