Speaker Reel

Looking for a  Different Speaker for your Conference, Business Meeting, Virtual Event, or Podcast?

Bill brings the background of common-sense learning (being raised on a cattle ranch), a B.A. in Theology, an M.A. in Psychology, the experience of a MFT (Marriage and Family Therapist), AND nearly 30 years of business practice to the table.

These multiple perspectives and backgrounds synergize to bring amazingly simple, yet powerful tools to leaders and managers – tools that have been proven over and over for nearly four decades.

Your audience will walk away with immediate lessons learned they can implement to improve their businesses, their teams, AND their personal life. 

Is Bill Qualified? Most definitely, Yes!

Bill has been speaking since he was in his late teens. Even at that age, he had a natural ability to captivate an audience, and engage them with meaningful content. Over the past many decades, he has been a sought after speaker for associations, large companies, events and multi-disciplined gatherings.

Whether his audience is 50 people in a hotel ballroom or five to six thousand people in a large auditorium, Bill is not only comfortable, but the reviews of his effectiveness are stellar. He is entertaining, motivational, and educational. Audiences walk away having laughed AND learned.

He has spoken in a one to two hour format, and has a special skill in keeping people engaged and motivated…all day! It is not unusual for a participant to say, “That 8 hours flew by. It felt like 30 minutes.”

Additionally, Bill tailors his presentation to your audience’s perspectives, skill level, and vocabulary. He has been successful speaking to a multi-hundred audience of healthcare professionals and has put on his boots and jeans to speak with hardcore construction workers. He truly can connect and communicate a message for any group of people.

Ethics, Integrity, and You (2-Part Series)

Though there is often a regulatory requirement to have “Ethics Training,” we have found that reviewing the laws and HR policies regarding ethics has limited impact – thus limited value. In fact, “ethics” is the moral compass one uses to live life, engage in relationships, and lead teams (or companies). It is not rooted in regulatory rules.

Further, mandating certain ethical behaviors hasn’t seemed to be sustainable. People go through the motions but end up following the ethics laws like one does the speed limit – “It’s ok to break the speed limit as long as I keep watching for cops.”

More sustainable and fulfilling outcomes regarding this “regulation” are to learn how to BE ethical rather than follow “rules of ethics.” That’s what this training emphasizes.

Part 1: How “Ethics” Define and Confine Corporate Culture

Learn how leaders leverage ethics to create a vibrant corporate culture

Ethics are a part of the very soul of an organization…indeed, of a person. They provide the moral compass, the belief systems, and the permissible (as well as impermissible) behavior that is a part of the company’s identity. The ethics embedded into the culture can make for an attractive, fulfilling and sustainable business – or can do quite the opposite if not crafted or defined well.

The attendees will learn:

  • How ethics emerge into existence – both in you and your consulting company or agency
  • How faulty (or ill-defined) ethics can erode your corporate culture
  • How three, well-proven ethics can result in amazingly efficient and motivational behavior

This training will help attendees see how ethics is more than a continuing education requirement. Rather it is an integral part of leadership success that you can apply to any facet of life.

Part 2: Putting Ethics into Practice

How successful leaders use ethics to develop…or discipline…team members

Since ethics are at the very heart and soul of every company and regulatory agency, they consciously (or subconsciously) drive every leadership interaction and behavior.

If a leader is not aware of these powerful, but hidden, ethics, at best, he or she cannot leverage their power. At worst, that leader will be at odds with the underlying ethics of the company and create weak outcomes, a lack of alignment in staff, and general dissatisfaction in the morale of the team. At the very least, identifying our ethical beliefs reveals the “why” in our actions.

Attendees will learn:

  • The “why” in the Truby team/business development model, and how being connected to the “why” maximizes the outcomes
  • How to use embedded ethics in a discipline process that reaps astounding results (and makes it easier to deal with those low performers)
  • How to have better teamwork AND company growth by defining, expressing and amplifying ethics

This training will help attendees see how ethics is more than a continuing education requirement. Rather it is an integral part of leadership success that can apply to any facet of life.


Truby Business Success Model - How Successful Business Owners Eliminate People Problems, Maximize Profit, and Attract More Customers

At the least, our Business Success Model builds high-performing, accountable, and energized teams. At the most, it becomes a business model that propels the business to sustainable growth and success. What’s our secret sauce? It’s the secret of the “how.”

This model has power – not because it asks you to do more things, different things, or overlay some new “program” onto your already busy day. Instead, it shows you how to do what you are already doing…differently. Better. With more successful results. Results that save you time, money, and stress.

Bill Truby will reveal everything a business owner, leader or manager needs to focus on to make a quick and powerful improvement in the business. And one of the best parts about this approach is something that’s embedded in “the secret of the how” – namely, it doesn’t take any additional time. In fact, it typically takes LESS time than what you are already doing.

How is this possible? Simple. If you are delegating, for example, and you’re not following the natural laws surrounding the process of delegation, then it takes a lot of time, YOUR time, to check up on things, redo things, re-delegate it, or just plain worry about it until it’s done. Changing HOW you delegate eliminates all of that.

And this is true in ALL aspects of your business. The Truby Business Success Model shows you how to take a proven EFFECTIVE approach to every “people and process” issue you have in your company. And in so doing, get quick and sustainable results!

Metaphorically, our clients say using our model is like this – They were pushing on a door to success regarding…delegation, strategic planning, more productivity or profit, low performers, conflict…you name it. For a long time, they were pushing, and pushing, and pushing – and the door to success, and it wouldn’t open. Then we come along, tap them on the shoulder, and point to a sign that says, “pull.” Changing HOW they did what they did gave INSTANT success. Easier. Quicker. And with lasting results. That is what this presentation is all about.

Power in the Chair: The Hidden (and Often Unknown) Power in the Leadership Role

For decades, the world has focused on building better leaders. Why? Because “nothing trickles up.” As goes the leaders, so goes the company. That fact is undeniable.
