Speaking & Presentations

“When it comes to understanding the concept of Gov 2.0, there is no one better than Bill Greeves as your teacher.  He has the most comprehensive knowledge and experience of anyone I have worked with in the technology and communications field.  This coupled with the fact that his presentation style evokes an understanding of the material in even the most technologically apprehensive person, makes Bill essential to any local government wanting to engage in Gov 2.0.”

 Holly Eskridge

Assistant to the City Manager
City of Rock Hill, South Carolina


If you’d like me to speak to your organization, please understand that my “real job” as a municipal CIO keeps my schedule tight so please contact me as early as possible. Also, the sponsoring organization must cover all expenses. As an alternative, I have had much success with remote presentations via webinar and I’d be happy to discuss with you how this could be a possible alternative.
