Hi, My name is William D. Pierre III, and I'm 48 years old. First, I am a man of God, and a minister of the gospel. After that, I am a devoted husband,(step) father of three, two boys, and one girl. The youngest is 15 years old, a young drummer, and very promising in his craft. My baby girl is 18, and preparing for college, having earned a scholarship in theater arts. My oldest is 22, and also a minister. He's married to a beautiful young lady, and they have blessed my wife and I with a handsome baby boy.
My experience, and training are a bit varied. I began as a youth speaking in church, reading scriptures, and reciting poetry. Later in school I became a member of the debate team, I also participated in theater, as well as performing in the schools choir. I have been an active member of Toastmasters Int., an international organization with the sole mission of creating world class speakers. Lastly I have been formally trained in ministry at the college level. This has furthered my training in writing, and public speaking. allowing me to be an excellent orator on a number of levels.
My life, in and of itself has given me a variety of experiences to draw from, both positive, and negative. After a three year battle in and out of the hospital, when I was 17, I lost my mother, and with her, what seemed like most of the rest of my family. I was incarcerated twice for foolishness on my part. Angry with the world, and everyone in it. I've been married twice, my current marriage being the second. I lost my father in 2009, a man that I knew, but never really knew, and having to determine, along with my sisters, if taking him off life support was best, I sat with him until he took his last breath. I learned how to forgive that day, and went on to eulogize my father. These are a few of the life experiences that have made me the type of motivational, and inspirational speaker that you need.
Thank You for your time.
