Bill Porter Speaker Profile
A dynamic speaker and author of a New York times best selling book “Ten Things I learned from Bill Porter”, Shelly Brady presents the motivational and inspirational Bill Porter story. Sometimes the true heroes in our lives are those people who inspire us not with their superhuman accomplishments but simply by their refusal to give up in the face of seemingly insurmountable odds and the dignity in which they conduct their lives. Bill Porter is one of those heroes.
Born with cerebral palsy, Bill was told for many years that he was unemployable. But with the unwavering support of a dedicated mother and an indomitable spirit that has become his trademark, Porter did support himself as a door-to-door salesman in Portland Oregon.
Porter’s professional success is all the more amazing given the fact that his cerebral palsy makes walking extremely painful. Regardless, for more than 40 years, he walked eight to ten miles a day, selling products for the Watkins Company becoming their all time number one salesperson.
Bill’s story was featured in an ABC 20/20 segment that received the largest viewer response in it’s history. Bill has received numerous awards including “The Salesman of the Century” from Home Base, the “Game On” from Nike, and the “Communication” award presented by astronaut and senator John Glenn.
Bill Porter’s story is so inspirational, William H. Macy wrote and starred in the Emmy award winning movie “Door To Door”, presented on TNT, which chronicles 40 years of Porter’s remarkable life. Director and co-writer, Steven Schachter said, “Bill Porter’s story is so compelling because it’s about a simple man with cerebral palsy. He is unheroic in his deeds, but when you look at the totality of his life, he’s an amazing hero because of the daily obstacles he faces and the odds he’s overcome. He represents a kind of work ethic that’s long gone.”
The ability Shelly has to escort us through Bill’s life and accomplishments will motivate every employee. Your top executives to the sales force, even your receptionist, will walk away from this presentation desiring to reach their own highest potential. Shelly’s oration is timeless, universal and will definitely promote teamwork within your staff.
