    Wise guidance. A rare find.

    William is a great guide. He is deeply present and attuned. It is such a gift to have someone hold space like he does, to be able to feel witnessed and also called higher. Working with William has brought me clarity, acceptance and momentum in my personal and professional life. Thank you!

Will is a great listener and a wise mentor, and I am very grateful for his role as coach and mentor.

    William is wise beyond his years...

    "Occasionally one meets a wise person, someone who holds a knowing and an ability receive and comprehend information at an intellectual, physical, and spiritual level. William is wise beyond his years. His ability as a coach to be present with what is, to intuit what I (his clients) need and to hold space for my self discovery, without pushing an agenda, is why he is so uniquely talented at what he does. Of course Will has a wide tool set to pull from in his coaching, but I believe that beyond his trainings and skills, it is his intuition and insight into what it is to be a human seeking purpose and soul, that makes his coaching unique."

    I would highly recommend Mr. Walker...

    William Walker spoke at Open Door in May 2015. Open Door is a weekly 
    reintegration activity designed to help inmates and ex-inmates 
    successfully transition back into the community at the end of their 
    prison sentence. The volunteers and beneficiaries range from ages 20-85, 
    from semi-literate to PhD. 

    Since 2007 I have scheduled over 600 guest speakers from every field 
    imaginable: professors, activists, business owners and so on. The 
    calibre of our speakers is very high, and to Mr. Walker's credit, his 
    presentation on "Mythology and Finding Personal Meaning, Responsibility 
    and Empowerment in One's Life", was one of the most inspirational and 
    memorable Open Doors I have experienced. One attendee told me that the 
    presentation almost caused tears to form, it was so moving.

    Will helped create alignment where alignment didn't seem possible...

    "Will helped create alignment where alignment didn't seem possible.  It was nothing short of a miracle. It's not possible to put a value on that. Will has a unique ability to blend business acumen with the wisdom that comes from being connected to spirituality.  He is passionate about helping leaders embody leadership in the most authentic way.  Many people talk about wanting to create change. Will lives and breathes it. Will is trustworthy. We paid Will on a retainer and he gave us a credit for hours he didn't feel he'd earned.  That is character.  Will is viewed by everyone at our company as a guide for our business.  He is a safe place for our employees to go to be heard and as long as he is willing to do it, we want him to remain as a valuable member of our family.  Will is a gifted writer, communicator, and understands how to bring the very best out of a leadership team.  Any company looking to work with Will is getting the best of the best."

    William lead an exploration deeper into the WHY of my business...

    The Executive Alignment retreat I did with William had a tremendous impact on my business, but more importantly, the way I thought about my business. Being a leader of a growing live music agency, it's easy to get consumed with operational concerns. Going into my fifth year of business I was transitioning into a more pure leadership role where previously I was doing a bit of everything.  I felt a call to explore what being a leader in my organisation could look like and go deeper into my own capacity for leadership - and what I could do to be as effective as possible.  In the retreat, William lead an exploration deeper into the WHY of my business and specifically the meaning of the brand and my and my brand's purposes. At times it was difficult to go deeper but William is a skilled listener and leader and he knew when to push me when more clarity was needed or when I wasn't being fully honest with myself.  We extracted a solid vision statement and a new vocabulary around my core values as a leader, and for the business, we created 5 core company values as well (this became 6 core values after the Leadership Team Elegance retreat I did not long after).  I still refer to the notes and documentation from the program every time we on-board a new team member or sub-contractor, we start with our vision and our core values to set up a greater two-way understanding between my team and the company.  Not everything came for us, which was ok too. I struggled to create a strong and clear mission statement in the retreat. This was a valuable experience for me and has helped shape the artist and employee culture in my organisation.

    Support like this is frankly rare and priceless...

    "I hired Will to facilitate a developmental retreat with my work in Dynamic Presencing a few years ago. As a close colleague who knows my work well, it felt like a natural match at the time. Process-wise we struck a rich balance of having me stretch into new regions of the work as well as consolidate my existing knowledge.  Working with Will clarified the growing edge of my work, where it needs to grow to more optimally meet client’s needs and the pathway to making this a concrete reality.  Though we did the retreat a few years ago, as I reflect on it now, it is clear to me that the work we did during those sessions played a formative role in clarifying the path, aims and means that I’ve since grown into exploring and materializing.  William has an exacting ability to presence where you are at and hold a rich developmentally informed container to grow into where your most called to be.  His listening depth and generative way of engaging you is rare in today’s marketplace of offerings.  Because he has done deep work on himself, you can count on William’s wisdom to source and resource you in your path, work and calling.  Because his sensors are richly attuned to and through his own carved out sensibility of meaning, because his why is real, palpable, there’s a rare experience to be had that when you face into where you are with him, untold possibilities begin to become tangible.  Support like this is frankly rare and priceless."

    To engage with Will is an encounter of personal challenge...

    "To engage with Will is an encounter of personal challenge that can be as radical as you want it to be. And he won't let you go as long as you want to hang on. And while you're there, nothing goes unnoticed in his earnest pursuit to leverage your potential: be prepared to level up. Will's ways are accompanied by many tools and, in my experience, 'presence' is the name on his toolbox."

    "Will is a force of nature - gentle, accepting and incredibly perceptive and also fierce in his own integrity, which invites the same in everyone he's with.
