"Bill Deering is a motivational speaker who has dealt with a lifetime of stuttering. He has shared his life experience for over four years to thousands of junior high, high school, and college students about breaking through the barriers and limitations in their own lives. He shares about the personal obstacles he has overcome as someone who stutters. Bill would stutter so severely that it would take him over three minutes just to say his name, three additional minutes to properly answer the phone. His challenge was so difficult he did not use the phone until he was twenty years-old. Today, though his stutter is not nearly the limitation it once was, he shares his experience during public presentations designed to benefit and empower students who may be facing their own life challenges feeling isolated and unsupported. Bill's program is powerful and has a lasting impact on everyone who hears it. Attendees report feeling empowered, inspired, encouraged, and ready to face their personal challenges with vigor and a new sense of possibility.
