Walter Bond knows what it’s like to be discounted by everyone around you. To run up against challenges that feel insurmountable. And to have moments where challenges were winning. But then Walter recognized a single truth that changed everything: Peak Performers have no excuses for failure; only reasons for success.
Former NBA star Walter Bond is a speaker who motivates people through his life story of trials and triumphs. Growing up in Chicago, he always dreamed of playing in the NBA. Though he lacked the natural athletic gifts of many of his peers, through hard work, parental encouragement, and discipline, he achieved his dream, and had an eight-year professional playing career with the Dallas Mavericks, Utah Jazz, and Detroit Pistons. He also spent time as a broadcast analyst for the Minnesota Timberwolves.
He later applied the same principles he’d used as a pro-basketball player to achieve great success off the court as an entrepreneur, business owner, and financial analyst. His latest book, The Off Season for Financial Advisors, is a “playbook” designed to help financial advisors win and win big.
A powerful keynote speaker, Walter Bond transforms his athletic and business savvy into an action-packed inspirational message that will deliver results to your organization, regardless of their circumstances. He spreads positivity through his inspirational story and shows listeners how they truly can live their dreams.
HAVE YOU HEARD OF THE MOVABLE MIDDLE? Ignoring it could cost you time, money and productivity.
The biggest group in any organization is called average. They are the people caught between what could have been, what could be, and today’s reality. They are cursed by average. They are your movable middle.
But what if your moveable middle were stellar superstars? What if even 10% decided to be 10% better? Your organization would find unprecedented levels of success. Walter knows it is not only possible, but with the right motivation, it is probable.
Like you, Walter Bond knows what it feels like to be a part of the pack. His South Side of Chicago roots provided little chance for a stellar future – and definitely not a future as an NBA Professional Basketball Player.
He was stuck somewhere in the middle until Walter discovered the proven strategies to become bigger, faster and stronger so he could break away from the pack. The secret to success existed in the habits and rituals that had been a part of his upbringing. His father told him, “Suck it up and get tough!” While Walter thought that was just tough love from a good father, he soon learned that his dad was talking about mental toughness. The type of mental toughness that eradicates excuses, embraces action and propels you to greatness – the type of greatness that allows you to perform at the highest levels of the game.
Walter Bond shares stories, lessons and the type of motivation that sparks the superstars, motivates the middle and excites your attendees. When Walter is on the platform, you will have the knowledge and skills needed to take the proven path away from the pack and into the Peak Performer’s spotlight.
