Use My Consulting Services

Bill has worked with a number of institutions and organizations to help them deliver on their commitment to educational success.  In particular, Bill has designed programs that promote higher levels of success for institutions attempting to prove themselves to a broader audience.  These programs are of particular interest to community and small liberal arts institutions interested in how to link their education and training to the new job market. 

Bill has worked with and presented to Albion College, Kellogg Community College, Michigan State University and others.  The GEAR UP program in Ogden, Utah considered his work important enough to provide a copy of his latest book (The path from backpack to briefcase: A parent’s guide) to each of 435 graduating high school seniors.

Keynote Address FEEDBACK


Bill’s dynamic and groundbreaking new course

Bill will take you through the secret passages of “How to treat college as a 4-year job search.”

Given the cost of college in terms of money and time, it is critically important that this generation of students learns how to make the most of the experience. 

The course will give you (parent, counselor, program administrator and student) the resources you need to give your student a “leg up” in the professional job market at graduation.
