What do clients have to say about Bill?

Listening to a presentation by Bill Beaman was truly a moment of awakening for me. I was completely enamored by his message to our audience of professional women. I have kept in touch with him since and always feel inspired and renewed after our conversations. He will definitely be included on my dedication page or acceptance speech one day!

Bill’s ability to distill a client’s priorities into effective messaging points is remarkable. We engaged Bill to media train members of a co-operative for one of the world’s most recognizable restaurant brands. Three weeks later, the president of the co-op received praise from the brand’s global leadership for how effectively he engaged local, national and international media to tell the brand’s story of resilience and community involvement. This co-op president said to me, ‘Thank God we just did that training with Bill!’

I had the privilege of attending a presentation by Bill Beaman and ‘he had me at hello.’ Bill has since helped me with C-suite presentations, enabling me to present my thoughts and ideas to those who aren’t experts in my field.  With his coaching, my presentations are not only eloquent but genuinely in my voice.

I was facing a critical presentation and needed to increase my self-confidence since English is not my native language.  Bill was outstanding in identifying my most important messages and helping me express them eloquently and comfortably. His coaching made all the difference!
