Bill Wooditch built a multi-million-dollar company from the philosophy: “To receive value, you first have to give value.” For over 25 years, he has created and implemented proven concepts, structures, and narratives that support leadership development. He is a results-based speaker who inspires the quest for innovation, enrichment, and self-fulfillment in personal and professional undertakings.
Bill’s second book, “Fail More” (Wall Street Journal bestseller, published by McGraw Hill), was released on March 26, 2019. Fail More provides the insights and tools to take active, strategic measures to turn the sting of failure into the reward of growth. It reveals the setbacks that are both inevitable and valuable and delivers practical ways of quickly moving past self-judgment and -recrimination. By embracing failure, not just “getting past it,” you will fly past your competition, whether you’re building a startup, advancing in your career, or improving your personal life.
His bestselling book, “Always Forward!”, has been called “a game plan for life” by NBC’s Tracy Forner. His book is a product of the hard-won experience he earned as the top salesperson at a Fortune 500 company and, later, as the top producer for two consecutive years at the 6th largest insurance brokerage firm in the world.
Bill uses his experiences and insight to inspire individuals to pursue personal development and professional success with single-minded fervor, providing valuable guidance in leadership, sales, and becoming a game-changer in your own right.
“Bill did an excellent job with our team. His ability to mix salient ideas specific to our team with big picture ideas helped everyone and was outstanding. Bill’s enthusiasm and passion exceeds all other speakers I have seen. I would recommend him to anyone, but especially those companies that are trying to grow to the next level!”

“Thanks Bill for taking the time to enlighten us. I can tell by you taking the road less travelled, you have accumulated a wealth of experiences that make you beyond a seasoned veteran. Your presentation had a lot of great take-a-ways and I’m sure to take a lot from it.”
“Back in 2001, I was working at Trench Plate Rental Co. You came to our meeting in Laguna Beach to give a speech and get the group fired-up. You showed a clip from the movie Gladiator and then gave one of the most inspiring speeches I have ever seen. I myself have a degree in communication, but never saw anyone own a room like you. Well, here we are almost 20 years later and we reconnect on LinkedIn. I still remember that day and use your words with actions throughout my journey. Thank you for making an impact on one very grateful soul!”
