Bill J. Guertin
Keynote Speaker | Sales Expert | Podcast Producer & Host | Emcee & Presenter
Bill Guertin is the leader of the “7 Voices” Movement, whose purpose is to hear, recognize, and minimize the effects of the negative Voices inside people’s heads and to implement simple strategies to make positivity a life choice every day.
He understands the pressure leaders at every level are facing, especially those in sales, customer service and leadership whose lives are in the midst of uncertainty, and brings simple strategies to improve their results.
His strategies are in use in the ticket sales departments of over 100 professional sports teams throughout the US, Canada and Mexico, and he serves as Chief Learning Officer of ISBI 360, a virtual training network specifically for executives in sports and entertainment.
Bill has over 30 years’ experience in sales and leadership, including 20 years in broadcast media as a sales rep, sales manager and General Manager of radio properties in the Midwest.
When he is not working, Bill spends quality time with his wife, Sherri, their three grown boys and their families who enjoy Sundays together watching the Chicago Bears. He serves as a Board member of the Baylor University Center for Sports Strategy and Sales, and volunteers for the Kankakee County Humane Foundation, where he and Sherri have made forever homes for several very spoiled dogs.
“I've seen Bill Guertin present many times over the past 15 years, at our own National Sports Forum as well as at numerous other conferences, and he's never once disappointed. After 25 years of producing the NSF, Bill remains one of my favorites. He creates a genuine connection with his audiences almost immediately, and can gain their respect and command their attention throughout, which is easily said but is far from easy to execute.
Bill has been a Featured Speaker, a Breakout Session leader, a Moderator and a Panelist at our annual event, and is a consummate professional in any role he’s asked to perform. Part of Bill’s "secret" is that he's extremely well prepared. He studies not just his subject matter but his audience, so he is ready for anything that comes up. I would highly encourage any organization considering Bill to pull the trigger; trust me, you won't be disappointed.”
