Speaker Bio

After bursting on to the scene as NBC’s first Apprentice, Bill Rancic has traveled to every part of the globe, sharing his life experiences and business acumen with tens of thousands of leaders, businesses and organizations on a variety of important topics.

 

His expertise ranges from why some companies thrive in chaos — and others don't — to the leadership behaviors needed in a world beset by turbulence, uncertainty and dramatic change.

 

What makes Bill so unique is that he is both a student and teacher of leadership and has a healthy obsession with what makes great companies and leaders tick.

 

Having invested nearly two decades living the topic, Rancic has authored four books. These include New York Times best-seller You’re Hired: How to Succeed in Business and Life, which examines how some companies and leaders make the leap to superior results; the enduring classic Beyond the Lemonade Stand which teaches young people empowers them with the value of both money and positive self-image.

 

In addition, Rancic co-authored I Do… Now What? with celebrity wife Giuliana Rancic where they share secrets to a supportive love and true partnership in marriage.  He also just penned his first novel, First Light.

 

Driven by a relentless curiosity, Bill Rancic really began his business journey when graduated cum laude from Loyola University. He then went on to become a successful entrepreneur when he founded a monthly online subscription-based retailer.

 

Since that time, he has inspired millions of people around the globe to work towards reaching their full potential, both in business and in their personal lives. He is currently co-owner of the RPM Restaurant Group and the Giuliana Prosecco.

 

Rancic appears regularly on numerous daytime broadcast and cable television programs such as Today, The View, Rachael Ray, Steve Harvey and various CNBC programs.

 

He currently resides in Chicago with his wife Giuliana and son Duke.

Keynote Topic #1

The Pause and Pivot Method

From a boat washing business in college to a million-dollar business and restaurant empire, Bill Rancic’s road to success has been paved with the ups and downs that anyone in business will have to overcome. This is a story you might hear again and again in the world of business speaking, but that does not mean Bill Rancic isn’t unique. He is. Bill is different.

What makes Bill different is his adaptability in an ever-changing business world, and his willingness to adopt strategies that reject conventional wisdom in the industry. He has been shaking up the old school business model from his first job out of college to his latest restaurant opening. This separated him from the pack while he crafted a personal and professional brand that has now established him as a household name. Now, your employees and business audiences worldwide can learn how he did it, right from the source.

 

Bill will share takeaways that are immediately applicable in a range of business models and sizes. For anyone who wants to increase their return on investment, improve market share, or reap the benefits of a more productive, motivated workforce, Bill can help you grow. You just have to take advantage of this opportunity and learn to pause, pivot, and succeed.

His presentation will include a variety of success methods, including the new Pause and Pivot Method, created exclusively by Bill for these engagements. He will share this totally new technique, teaching audiences how to evaluate their business techniques in a methodical manner that will make them more productive in both long- and short-term situations. And productivity is key, after all. Providing this fresh ground-level perspective into the steps needed to pause and gain a deeper perspective, will help you pivot to reach the ultimate goal.
