“I have known Bill Maxwell for over 15 years and have had the pleasure of working with him at SCILS (Finland) as partners and faculty/advisers. Bill always brings a great deal of knowledge, experience, humor, and commitment to any opportunity. His ability to engage a group in meaningful dialogue is second to none. His insights into what makes an organization – and its people – successful make his programs directly relevant to the workplace. When I was asked to pull together a team to work with executives in Europe, Bill was the first person I called. You will not only learn a great deal from Bill, you will also know how to apply it – and you will enjoy the process of discovery.”

“It has been a pleasure to work with a professional like William (Bill) Maxwell. He has been able to motivate executives in our management programs while sharing useful tools and techniques for how to produce change within organizations. Bill has a unique ability to make people feel comfortable while being challenged – this combination has motivated the participants to obtain and, more importantly, make use of their new set of skills. I can highly recommend Bill as an executive trainer.”

Michaela Loisel

”The information-packed session provided tools for managing the most difficult of employee relations issues. Each manager left the session with an action plan for managing their particular concern. Bill brings equal measures of wit, wisdom, experience, and credibility.”
