A man with ANSWERS... Now lets change focus to a man who is truly making a difference and impacting lives daily by interacting, educating and creating TOP TALENT locally and hopefully soon in 100 local markets. Bill Strickland is President and CEO of Manchester Bidwell Corporation. At the Texas Workforce Commission Conference a few months ago I was lucky enough to hear Bill's story of success. No fancy presentations, no whiz bang jargon, just a man sharing his story of hope. This message of hope and success is a template for our workforce and should be, in a variety of ways, implemented in every city throughout the nation. Bill's success comes from a common sense approach of merely doing the right and smart thing, devoid of government and corporate bureaucracy. This cat's got it figured out!
