Walter Bond: A Lifetime in Pursuit of Peak Performance
Walter Bond is one of the top corporate keynote speakers and executive coaches in the nation. His reputation is built on a powerful speaking style, memorable ideas, and his hard-earned mastery of peak performance principles.
A bench player during his four-year college career at the University of Minnesota, Walter Bond decided to dedicate himself to understanding peak performance. He willed himself to a full-scale optimization of every aspect of his game—and a six-year professional career, including stints with the Dallas Mavericks, the Utah Jazz, and the Detroit Pistons.
Ever since, Walter has worked to hone his methodologies and teach them at businesses across the United States. His expertise on business performance has led to diverse opportunities in corporate America. For instance, Walter hosted Food Network’s franchise food-business show, Giving You the Business.
