William’s intriguing tale of near death in a volcanic eruption, having his leg amputated and then using this massive challenge in his life as a springboard to create opportunities and pursue excellence, will not only entertain but enlighten. William’s latest, most dangerous and biggest challenge of conquering Mt Scott in Antarctica will keep everyone on the edge of their seats.
William’s stories are wrapped with relatable messages that challenge audiences to be everyday explorers, to be obsessed in a good way and how daydreaming can be the fast track to success – not only in the outdoors but in everything he does. These messages are applicable to every audience striving for excellence and will empower participants to view everything they do in a different light.
If you are looking for your team to be motivated, inspired, successful, to have self belief, be prepared and confident to take risks and step outside their comfort zone – in fact to be the best they can, then William is the man to challenge and change the way they think.
William is a dynamic and passionate presenter – who can cater his story and experiences so they are relevant, from business keynotes to school presentations to after dinner addresses. He delivers his message in a relaxed, humorous and dynamic way so that participants are engaged and connected.
William’s awards include; 2014 KiwiBank Local Hero medal recipient and AMP Bank Regional Scholarship winner, 2015 Young New Zealander of the year finalist and a 2017 Blake Leader Award recipient.
William Pike was an amazing speaker keeping the 170 strong audience spell bound... The message we were all left with was that with determination and a positive attitude anything is possible. He also illustrated the importance of having a strong established team around you so that when a crisis happens you are all able to function as a well-oiled unit. I received numerous comments on how inspirational William’s presentation was and would thoroughly recommend him to anyone looking for a motivational speaker.
His ability to link his story to my business and give my team some take home thoughts was great... I thoroughly recommend William as a speaker for any organisation keen to inject some attitude into their teams and get them thinking about their vision in life.
You simply cannot keep a good man down. William will inspire you and your team with attitudes and strategies to live every day as a good day.
He really is an inspiration to many. William is a passionate and engaging speaker. He has a relaxed style of presentation, using warmth and humour to relate to his audience.
I wish to recommend William Pike as a gifted and compelling speaker. William provided an engaging after-dinner presentation at the Australasian Nurse Educators Conference held in Hamilton which was attended by 350 people.
Our speaker line-up included Mark Bouris (Chairman of Yellow Brick Road) and John Anderson (Founder of Contiki). I’m pleased to say that William did not disappoint, in fact many of our delegates said William was their highlight. He held the audience captive for his entire presentation.
