For nearly twenty years, Bill Wagner has been at the forefront of entrepreneurial practice and research. He has devoted nearly all of his adult life to understanding entrepreneurs and entrepreneurship -- first as a student, then as an entrepreneur and now as a teacher.
He is the Co-founder and CEO of Accord Management Systems, Inc.; a firm dedicated to helping executives make logical conclusions about themselves and the people within their organizations. Working hand-in-hand with entrepreneur-focused organizations such as The Executive Committee (TEC), the Young Entrepreneur's Organization (YEO), The International Franchise Association (IFA), he is able to stay on the cutting edge of research and knowledge on entrepreneurship.
Bill is an expert in due diligence, mergers and acquisitions, organizational alignment, succession planning and tactical applications such as selection, leadership development, motivation and team building. He helps audiences and clients understand why issues exist, what to do about them and how to fix them. He calls himself an "insultant" rather than a mere consultant, who believes the difference is in the message. He rocks the boat and tells the truth, helping clients become their own organizational therapists. Bill focuses on questioning answers rather than answering questions.
