February – William Holt

William Holt - February Speaker

William Holt has worked with coaching clients and international executives from Chevron, Toyota, Bank of America, Bechtel, Unilever, BP and many others for over 25 years. He has personally trained over 240 executives to become coaches in and outside of their companies. He has won many awards, including the Unilever Silver Award and the Best Practices Aware for an outstanding Coaching Training Program at BP.

It is his love and respect for his mother and his own forced exit from Corporate America that led to a career that speaks to his heart.  His mother was a good 50’s wife, marginalized, objectified, and passed up.  Watching his mom work for a big truck dealership, where even though she admired their success and bowed to male authority, was passed over for promotions and raises.  On her last job, she worked tirelessly for ‘the man” for 22 years, then was fired without a pension plan and was replaced by a younger person whom she had trained.

Similar experiences in his own career led him to pursue a dream in his heart.  He refers to himself as a feminist in a male body.  He will share more about his mother, his twin girls and his strong life partner, Adriana, so you can see that he is on a mission that serves women.  He believes that women are the hope for the future.
