Bill Graham has helped people find powerful ways to tell their stories: in theatres, on television, in the office, and in the boardroom. Today, Bill helps people communicate better as leaders, managers, sales people, educators and elected officials through keynotes, seminars, and workshops.
Bill spent over a decade directing and producing at Olney Theatre in Olney, MD. There, he practiced communicating, not just in front of theatre audiences, but also before planning boards, county councils, and the state legislature. He saw that people bought tickets when you told them a compelling story. He also taught acting at numerous colleges, universities, including the famed Stella Adler Conservatory.
For another decade, he served as Director of Creative Affairs for Procter & Gamble Productions, producers of the longest running shows in the history of television, the soap operas: Guiding Light, As the World Turns, and Another World. He created teams, developed writers, and helped producers make the complicated soap opera stories simple and memorable. Head-writers that he developed, and their writing teams, won Emmy Awards for Best Writing 5 of the last 7 years he was at P&G. While at P&G, he began his next career as a speaker and trainer, including collaborating with Arch Lustberg, one of the great gurus in the world of communications.
Bill is on the faculty of the US Chamber of Commerce’s Institute for Organization Management, the Council of State Government’s legislative leadership programs, and he has served on the faculties of New York University’s Tisch School for Hospitality, Tourism and Sports Management, and Seton Hall University’s Leadership Communication program.
He continues to live happily-ever-after with his wife and three daughters in Montclair, NJ.
