History of the BGSW
Standing On The Shoulders Of A Giant…
Bill Gove… 1912-2001
Bill Gove, CSP, CPAE, was recognized around the world as the father of professional speaking. Toastmasters International awarded Bill Gove its Golden Gavel Award in 1991, and called him one of the most popular speakers of the 20th Century. I was fortunate enough to be Bill's business partner from 1996 until he passed away on December 9, 2001, and to speak on stages with him around the world. I can tell you from first hand experience that Bill Gove was the modern day genius of public speaking.
Bill Gove with President Ronald Reagan and First Lady Nancy Reagan backstage at Carnegie Hall in 1955. President Reagan and Bill Gove often crossed paths on the speaking circuit and are considered two of the finest presenters of all time. Both men were inducted into the Speakers Hall of Fame in the 1970s.
One 20-minute speech to the right group of potential clients, prospects or superiors has the power to double or triple your income and open doors of opportunity that are closed to 95% of the population. Great speakers are seen as leaders in business, in the communities where they live, and in life in general. People have always been influenced (and probably always will be) by the eloquent, entertaining speaker who knows how to connect emotionally with his or her audience.
