Keynote Topic

What does impact mean to you? We’ve all seen the impact of all types of collisions. You’ve seen fender benders, car pile ups, some collisions can alter lives forever. Yet, some barely make a dent. That’s the metaphor I want you visualize. Imagine the benefits your life can create by you becoming an impact player. Every person you touch, every organization you influence will never be the same because of you. Shifting atmospheres simply by your mindset, skill set and productivity.

What happens when you show up? It’s all up to you, you are in control of your impact. It is your job to reach your potential and Walter wants to partner with you as you become an impact player.

Walter Bond: A Lifetime in Pursuit of Peak Performance

AC2018WalterBond 300x435 Like you, Walter Bond knows what it's like to be discounted by everyone around you. To run up against seemingly insurmountable challenges. To have moments where the challenges were winning. But Walter recognized a single truth that changed everything:

Peak Performers have no excuses for failure, only reasons for success.

After several stellar high-school seasons, Walter earned a scholarship on the University of Minnesota basketball team. As an average college player who was overlooked by the NBA, Walter tapped into a peak performance mindset, changed his work ethic, and found himself a professional NBA basketball player for the Dallas Mavericks.

Now retired from the NBA, Walter Bond shares stories, lessons, and motivation that spark superstars to success, moves middle players into action, and excites attendees to come back for more.

When Walter is on the platform, you will have the knowledge and skills you need to take the proven path away from the pack and into the Peak Performer's spotlight.

Make your goals a reality. Motivate your team with powerful content from a power speaker—Walter Bond.
