  • Help Infinite

    I am the best motivational speaker in the world. I create fuel to explode the fire that's already burning inside people. I provide a positive perspective on not just work but also life itself. Be the best you can be, and love every second of it. Life in itself is all perspective. This life is all our own movie. I am going to show you how to love your movie and want to strive for greatness every second you are awake. Every minute you spend awake, you're going to want to better yourself. Make your movie your favorite! My speaking is extremely powerful. My message does occasionally include profanity when it is necessary when driving a point home. My speaking will make you laugh; it will make you cry, but most importantly, I will wake you up! You will want to be great so badly after you hear my words. I have no limitations. I can speak to children under 18 with a PG version. The rated R has much more impact. I have owned three professional companies in my past, and I have been on both sides of the fence of a positive life and a negative life as well. Positive is so much more fun! Hire me, and if you have the time join the session, I'm going to change the lives of everyone who listens!

Thumbtack Spotlight

William Blades, LLC, Sales & Leadership Specialist

I started my business to do for corporations what I had done for my own sales force and for clients: grow both their people and revenue.

Bill Blades is a well-experienced speaker and consultant who has helped numerous manufacturers and distributors improve their revenue, culture and leadership, while having fun all throughout the process. He serves an international market, with North America as his focal point.

I have had a plethora of successful projects, but one would be a distributor that had stagnant revenues of exactly $50 million for 5 years. In my first 18 months, we ramped up to $87 million. I continued to work with them as advisor to the CEO, President, V.P. of Sales, V.P. of Operations, and the salespeople plus serving as Interim V.P. of Sales. I stayed with them until we surpassed $220 million and remained for occasional visits and telephone conferences as they closed in on $300 million.

Bill primarily sees himself in the role of educator, and he can emancipate you from your ignorance. Learn from his vast experience, and see your sales shoot up the way you envisioned it should.

  1. #1 The FREEMAN INSTITUTE® -- "Dealing With People Who Drive You Crazy"®

    (25 reviews)

    Lance H.

    This is the PMIWDC review of Dr. Joel Freeman's presentation “Dealing With People Who Drive You Crazy” delivered on 01/20/2015 at the Fairview Park Marriott Hotel. Of the 275 attendees, there were 155 responses to our survey. Speaker Rating (5 point scale) --------------------------------------- Speaker's Delivery: 4.70 Value/Appropriateness of the Topic: 4.63 Additionally, here are comments relevant to Joel's presentation: ------------------------------------------------------ - Great Presentation - He needs more time to talk. - Speaker is very animated - certainly kept me awake but also hard to follow his point at 8:07 pm. Lots of graphs, not much explanations on influencing different people. - Excellent speaker - Exceptional! Well done! - Speaker effectiveness off the chart! No suggestion- Amazing! Best speech in a while! - Please bring Mr. Freeman back each year. - Great speaker and topic! - Not really my style of speaker. It was too "informercialish" in beginning but better about 15 min in when we got to the "meat." My feedback as the event coordinator: ------------------------------------------------------ Joel was exceptionally easy to work with. He was flexible in tailoring his presentation to our member's needs. His visual were legible for the large ballroom. He communicated frequently with our team and showed great interest in the engagement.
