Bill Wallace to Present at January First Friday Book Synopsis

We are pleased to announce that Bill Wallace, who founded and has chaired Success North Dallas for 28 years, will be our guest presenter at the January 6, 2017 First Friday Book Synopsis at the Park City Club in Dallas.  He is pictured below with Karl J. Krayer, President of Creative Communication Network, which sponsors this event each month.

Wallace will present the popular book, The Power of Who:  You Already Know Everyone You Need to Know (Center Street) by Bob Beaudine.  He notes that this book has been very meaningful to him over the last several years, and believes that the book synopsis audience will find it powerful.  Part of this is due to the unique 100/40 principle featured in the book.

Bill Wallace is a member of the National Speakers Association, and has been a staunch and devoted supporter of the First Friday Book Synopsis.  From his website (www.successnorthdallas.com), we read the following biography:

Bill Wallace has often said his greatest skill is putting the right people together. Emanating from a database that would put the U.S. government to shame, Bill’s generous “connection-making” has benefited countless individuals who have turned to him for trusted referrals, strategic business support, personal coaching, and educational mentorship.

“Bill’s professional career flourished along with his development of Success North Dallas, first as owner of Wallace Financial Group—a provider of business continuation planning, insurance and financial strategies and estate and family protection—and, later, as Chairman and CEO of The Wallace Companies, a consulting firm specializing in capital development and executive management strategies.

“As a member of the Board of Governors of Northwood University and a strategic partner and board member of the University of North Texas Professional leadership program, Bill continues to help aspiring college students forge successful careers in business and the community. He also serves as Chairman of the non-profit Empowering Single Parents, which was inspired and created through relationships developed through Success North Dallas.

“Wallace is a charter member and past president of the Addison Rotary Club, a long-time member of CEO Netweavers, a past member of the Million Dollar Roundtable and the New England Financial Leaders Association, and the Author of “Peacefully Rich™ the Financial Road Less Traveled.” He has also served on the Board of Ronald McDonald House Charities and the Advisory Boards of St. Acuin Montessori School, Bryan’s House, and Ronald McDonald House of Dallas. In recognition for his work in the community, The Art of Living Foundation and the International Association for Human Values honored Bill with the Heroes of Humanity Award in 2009.

Online registrations for the January 6, 2017 First Friday Book Synopsis will open on Monday, December 5.


Please Wear a Purple Shirt to the October 7 Book Synopsis

You don’t have to buy one, and we will let you in if you do not have one. But, if it is possible for you to wear a purple shirt to the October 7th First Friday Book Synopsis at the Dallas Park City Club, that would help us commemorate our charity sponsorship that day.

Our charity for the book synopsis this month is our October 21 half-day seminar, “The State of Affairs in Domestic Violence,” benefiting the New Beginning Center and Hope’s Door, which are agencies dedicated to assist affected victims and families.  Creative Communication Network President Karl J. Krayer is the host and moderator for the conference.

October 21 is “Purple Shirt Day,” and wearing a purple shirt to our book synopsis, or on that day is one way to honor the victims and families who have suffered with domestic violence.
