Billy Graham is New Zealand’s most loved motivator. He is bold, bouncy and brimming over with energy and enthusiasm. When Billy bounds into a room in a track suit, skipping rope in hand, he grabs the audience’s attention within seconds as he conveys his personal approach to getting 110% out of life.
‘Your Ship Came in the Day the Doctor Smacked Your Bum’
Billy calls himself a fitness advisor and personal motivator but these California-style titles don’t do justice to his natural warmth and sincerity, nor his great talent for establishing a rapport with just about anyone. Billy is a man who not only believes he can do anything, he believes anyone can and is dedicated to using his talents to convince others of his message.
Billy delights in telling stories of his own life to show that anyone can make it. Having left school unable to read or write, Billy took up butchering and later teaching physical education. He eventually started his own business and some of his talents were recognised when he appeared on the Television New Zealand programme “Made in New Zealand”, which featured successful New Zealand companies.
Billy has designed a unique fitness concept that he manufactures and sells internationally. Major buyers have included the US Air force and the British Army – no small achievement for a dyslexic who left school at 14!
Billy’s motivational talks began when a top AMP executive heard him speak to sports groups and asked him to speak at their annual conference. Since then, he has spoken throughout Australasia, Singapore, Malaysia, the USA and Britain. He was the main platform speaker at the Million Dollar Round Table Convention in Atlanta, a New Zealand first, and received a standing ovation from an audience of 5000!
In early 1998 Billy had his motivational memoir, ‘Your Ship Came in the Day the Doctor Smacked Your Bum’ published.
A former Australasian boxing champion, Billy is far more than a fitness fanatic. He delights in telling stories of his life as an example that anyone can make it. Although he left school at age 14, barely able to read or write, Billy has managed to cram in several careers apart from his sporting achievements. Hilarious stories of his time as a butcher, motelier, social worker and physical education teacher burst forth from this continually surprising man.
Billy puts his winning philosophy into practice every day of his life. Most importantly, he loves people and delights in sharing his zest for living with others, whether they be business executives or school children. His warm and enthusiastic presentation inspires his audience to challenge their outlook and increase their potential.
Billy Graham is available for Conferences, Sales meetings, Incentive groups and other corporate audiences to speak on Business, Marketing, Motivation or as After Dinner Entertainment.
Billy’s life story is motivational and will help you get your attitude right, make the most of yourself and every opportunity.
Follow that dream and never retire!
