Work Inspired – Keynote

To Work Inspired is to work with joy and enthusiasm. It feels timeless and your energy and vision limitless. Children at play show all the signs of inspired living.  Their focus and sense of timelessness, their unlimited imaginations and the joy of play are all present when they are playing inspired. The same realities are at play when we Work Inspired.

In this keynote, Bill shares research into how the brain works and how we can use this knowledge to create an environment that will nurture a creative response to change and keep a healthy perspective even in unhealthy times. Bill focuses on empathy and what he calls “contagious inspiration” and discusses how nurturing our relationship with our selves and others can re-wire our neural pathways and change surviving into thriving and tragedy into strategy.

Work Inspired could also have been called “Working To Stay Inspired” as Bill shows how working inspired is a choice. That choice involves creating an “Inspiration Loop” by being with inspired people and inspiring them as they inspire you.

Bill’s Work Inspired keynote will reignite a passion and desire to find and develop inspiration in your own life and in the lives of those you work with and for. Bill believes that how we see the world determines our mind’s thoughts and motivations for actions and ultimately our destiny. To see the world with a mindset determined to find and nurture inspiration transforms the mundane into the amazing. Bill shows you how learning to Work Inspired everyday leads to a richer more deeply satisfying life. Why settle for less?

Listen to Bill speak on staying “Work Inspired”.

The keynote can be paired with Bill’s Work Inspired – The Workshop that builds on the ideas shared in the keynote and introduces strategies on how to make them work practically and immediately in your own work and life.  The length of this workshop is fully customizable to client needs.


 “Best seminar ever!” and “I needed to hear that!” were just a few of the repeated comments echoed in response to Bill Carr’s seminar addressing some 100 Teamsters Union Stewards at our annual seminar.  Bill speaks with a poignant, direct and personal style and delivers with an authority gleaned from varied personal life experiences, and shares these intimate nuggets of life with the wit and charm of a true Canadian Maritimer. As a facilitator, Bill draws the best from his audience, his compassionate prodding empowering even the most reticent participants to share personal insight and opinions. I would unreservedly and wholeheartedly recommend Bill to any organization or group function David Froelich, Secretary Treasurer , Teamsters Local Union 987 of Alberta

Bill was the star of the Council’s events.  His talk received an overwhelming positive response from our Stewards. He had has us roaring with laughter and in tears as he delivered information that was on point for the important work that our Union Stewards do.  He received 4/4 on our evaluations by Council participants with comments such as Awesome Speaker!, Hilarious! and made me remember why I became a Steward! Thanks for all your efforts. – Catherine Pinks, Professional Institute of the Public Service

Everyone enjoyed Bill’s presentation immensely.  His personal stories were real, and ones that all could connect to.  His maritime perspective was endearing and his sense of humour was wonderful and enjoyed by all.  He was easily able to tie his world and life experiences to our world of post secondary education and to give all a sense of accomplishment for our work. It was a perfect end to our two days together.I would highly recommend Bill as a keynote in the future.  He was extremely well received, and is certainly one of the reasons that our conference was such a success –  Norma MacIntosh, Dean, Faculty of Continuing Education & Extension

 I just wanted to thank you for recommending Bill for our team building event. His presentation was interesting, thought provoking and hilarious. I was amazed by the emotion he evoked from the entire room. I think everyone took something important home with them that day. He was the best speaker we’ve had to date and I hope to work with him again in the near future. – Maggie Morrison, The Regional Municipality of York
