“Bill Cordes was an amazing speaker to kick off our Leadership Conference! He got the crowd excited with his opening and kept the audience engaged throughout the presentation with activities and thought-provoking questions. Before you knew it, there was NOT a dry eye in the place as we became one as a group. Bill’s message, ‘You only get out what you put in’, reached everyone in the audience from 18 to over 50. Thanks, Bill, for a wonderful presentation!”

“Just wanted to send a quick note to say that Bill Cordes did an excellent job as the keynote speaker at our Nebraska Recreation & Park Association event! He did a great job of keeping the audience engaged at all times. His presentation appealed to our entire group which isn’t always easy as you know. We were very satisfied! Thanks for the recommendation! You’ve been very accommodating in helping our association choose speakers the past few years. We’ve really enjoyed working with MSB!”

“Bill Cordes did a fantastic job and demonstrated a lot of energy at the Noyes Home for Children’s Annual Meeting last night. He showed up early, took the tour, and then blended the Noyes Home passion into his talk! I can tell you he definitely hit a home run with the crowd and the Executive Director, Stephanie Ray, was very excited and thankful. In her words, ‘Bill did an amazing job!’ Of course, knowing you two and MSB, I knew it would be done right! Thanks again to you and Bill for exceeding our expectations!”
