You know those people who inspire you to be a better person, just by virtue of them being in the same room as you? Well, that’s Bill John, CEO and Co-Founder of Odyssey Teams, who along with Lain Hensley co-invented the entire philanthropic team building industry some 20 years ago.
Purpose-driven work, the “Why”, is not just a cliché to Bill. His work with Odyssey Teams has resulted in over 60,000 prosthetic hands given to amputees in 85 countries and over 23,000 bicycles to underprivledged children. Bill John demonstrates what all leaders hope to embody. It’s his life’s goal to lead you in discovering the best version of yourself and connecting you with the service and dignity of your work. The excellence of his keynote skills and knowledge is matched only by his humility.
Bill brings over 34 years of experience working with senior executives from the world’s biggest organizations such as Shell, Oracle, Kaiser Permanente, Express Scripts, Microsoft, UT Austin McCombs School of Business, UCLA Anderson School of Business, and his work is conducted around the globe with impact in over sixty countries.
When he isn’t changing lives in a program room, he is pursuing his passion of wildlife photography. His photography is what inspired the philanthropic component of our Team Mosaic Give program to protect wildlife in Africa.
