WALTER T. BOND BIOGRAPHY

KEYNOTE SPEAKER

Walter weaves both inspirational anecdotes and action steps together in his engaging storytelling style and

Walter T. Bond made it to the National Basketball Association, but he didn’t stop there. Where many would consider a career with the Utah Jazz, Detroit Pistons and Dallas Mavericks some of life’s greatest achievements, Walter saw it as a jumping off point. A catalyst that launched him into what he was made to do. His experience on and off the court prepared him for a thriving career in business coaching, mentorship, and public speaking. His journey to the NBA was not an easy one, but instead of seeing obstacles, Walter saw opportunity. While some may have complained about being on the bench as a college basketball player, Walter used it as an opportunity to hone in on the fundamentals every team needs to be successful. It is this mind shift, these simple yet powerful concepts, that has allowed Walter to reach massive audiences, long after his days on the court were over.

commands the audience with confidence. Walter’s relentless commitment to helping get

entrepreneurs, business leaders, sales teams and eager employees to the next level is what sets him apart from the rest. Walter is far more than a former NBA player. He is a renowned business coach, an author, a high-profile speaker, a business owner, a husband, a father and a friend. He is also a member of Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity, Inc. initiated at the University of Minnesota Chapter the Psi of Kappa Alpha Psi in June of 1988.
