Surviving a Blizzard? No Problem. Surviving in the Business World. That's Different

The NVTC Business Development, Marketing, & Sales Committee presented a morning with Nick Williams, noted speaker and sales star. Williams is a former Marine and high-tech CEO who survived a blizzard in the Sierra Nevada Mountain Range for three days and had the commitment to stay alive and write about his experiences in the recently published book, "Behind the Mountain." Exploiting sound principles of commitment, attitude, resourcefulness, perseverance, and teamwork, Nick called on what made him highly successful in business. In his presentation on excelling in the corporate world, marketing professionals, salespeople, managers, and CEOs received the finest practical advice on how to handle themselves in tough spots, be they life threatening, threatening to their job performance, or threatening to the company.

Nick Williams is a Deputy Assistant Secretary for HQ Operations at the U.S. Treasury Department.
