About Chad Williams
Having been a featured guest on Fox News Channel, CNN News Room, Anderson Cooper 360 and more; former U.S. Navy SEAL Chad Williams draws from his experience in the SEAL Teams to communicate an instructive perspective on teamwork, resilience, leadership and self-motivation.
Just days prior to entering SEAL training Chad's motivation and mental toughness would be tested as he turned on a television one morning to see unexpected graphic video footage of his mentor and training partner Navy SEAL ...
We had Chad speak at an autoshow sales lunch for approximately 300 people last week. Over my years of having motivational speakers at these events, Chad is one of the best. I had several comments from individuals who attended and commented that this was by far the best they have been to in 25 years.
His major speaking points were:
1. Aim small miss small
2. Common man with uncommon desire to succeed
3. Humbly we serve. Servant leadership
4. Forged by adversity
5. Earn your Trident every day
6. Ability to control emotions and actions regardless of circumstances
7. Motivated by what we draw on the inside of a hat
I would recommend him.

We could not have chosen a better speaker for our team building event than Chad. He captivated our 400-plus employees from the moment he stepped on the stage, delivering a powerful message of how every common person has the ability to strive for greatness by simply having an uncommon desire to succeed. The story he shared was sometimes emotional but thoroughly inspiring as he delivered lessons ranging from the importance of humility in leadership to how we are forged through adversity every day. The response from our employees after the event has been extremely positive and we are very pleased we chose him to deliver his message to our team.

My organization is comprised of Fire Chiefs and leaders of the fire service. Never have I seen this group of people give someone two standing ovations before. Chad Williams was engaging, well spoken and dynamic. His story energized the crowd and left our attendees wanting more.

Your dynamic, inspirational, and motivational message hit home with the over 100 people who were in attendance. I have never seen them listen so intently to anyone, and they are still talking about it almost a week later.
Your intense and personal message about your life-changing experiences had a telling effect on the entire audience. We all came away not only with a determination to address our challenges with confidence and conviction, but also we were humbled by hearing of the path you have chosen for your life.

Chad exceeded our expectations in his presentation on "7 Leadership Take-a-ways from a Navy Seal." It was informative and VERY interesting. He is truly a great speaker. One of the best we have had! We want to have him back to talk about his "experiences" with his SEAL team. Our members lined up to get his book and in fact he ran out of books. I think he could have sold 100 more!
