Bill Carney guided our journey towards long term strategy. By
challenging, questioning , provoking our initiatives he lead us towards deeper & sharper insights that contributed towards more "quality" strategy. We experienced excellent combination of high-level academics and practical business expertise. Every functional manager broadened strategic thinking that went beyond the expected functional tasks;

I was fascinated by Prof. William Carney's charismatic personality and the love of life he was radiating. His style can be best described by the following quotation from the novel Faust by Johann Wolfgang Goethe: "Dear friend, all theory is grey, and green the golden tree of life". Instead of dryly delivering the underlying truths contained in the textbooks, he kept provoking his audience with questions and emphasising the most important points illustrated by abundant audiovisual materials;

The seminar was extremely rewarding and revealed plenty of new things. It gave me the feeling of a gust of fresh air. The lecturer is a real professional. He managed to keep my attention throughout the seminar. The practical materials discussed during the sessions made me pause and focus on the essential aspects of strategic marketing. That was the best seminar I have ever attended;
Bill's intervention during our Nestle Greece Digital day has been a great success .His personal style and the bright content of his message has been the " wake up call ' that we wanted our marketing organization to receive;
Bill has over the last couple of years been helping us instigating a culture transformation at Danfoss - by moving mindsets and creating agreater entrepreneurial thinking across the organization. As one of THE best Entrepreneurship and Marketing professors in Europe, his teaching, lecturing and coaching in connection with our annual Man on the Moon Business Plan Competition has had a lasting effect on the employees who have been fortunate enough to experience Bill in full flavor - and thus he has had a significant impact on our organization.
Bill is an eminent communicator, an academic entertainer who knows his stuff extremely will and combines both practical experience and academic excellence to the great benefit of his audience. Moreover, Bill has the rare ability to reach the listener at an emotional level, which swoops them up and bring across his messages in a powerful and very effective manner. His provocative style has tested our employees in a constructive way, moved them out of their comfort zone and forced them to apply unconventional thinking.
We appreciate tremendously the work Bill has done for us and endorse him as the great Promoter he is;

I would warmly recommend Bill to anyone who wants to motivate his team and broaden its horizon in terms of how to do business. With passion and great concrete cases, Bill really managed to kindly but strongly challenge us and make each of us take a different look on how we should be managing our brands and business. A real source of inspiration. And a good reminder that the world keeps on moving and that we have to reinvent the way we work everyday;

Having both been a student as a customer of Bill Carney, I would describe Bill’s vibrant and direct way of communicating combined with a surplus of positive energy as his true competitive advantage. He brings fun and energy to table which helps drive change. Bill has been a speaker at our annual conference and has conducted a multi-continent NPS survey for us, involving over 200 customers. It goes without saying that Bill is an expert in his field;
