Keynote Speakers

Bill Wooditch

 Bill Wooditch is widely acknowledged as one of the most insightful and provocative leadership teachers of our time. Raised in a small town of 3,600 people in western Pennsylvania, he built a $100 million company from the ground up with the same philosophy he expounds to his audiences. To receive value, you first have to give value. Bill is an authority on leadership because he has developed proven concepts and creates structures and narratives that support leadership development. He is a fact-based speaker and uses that to inspire audiences to take the required steps to create and sustain great organizations. His presentations are the product of 22 years of “in the trenches” engagement, from rough-hewn job sites to highly veneered Fortune 500 boardrooms.
