The Simulation Studios "Story"

Bill Hall comes from the upper ranks of high-tech turnarounds. This includes companies such as Apple, Skype, AOL, Nortel, and others. During his corporate turnaround years, Bill learned that a company can have a great strategy, but without highly effective leadership and employee alignment, the great strategy was as good as dead. Additionally, Bill learned that theoretical leadership development concepts aren’t as helpful as possible without partipants understanding two things: a) the what, why, and how of leadership and b) leadership development must demonstrate its impact on business performance. This led him on a journey that eventually led to Simulation Studios where he built a team of like-minded past executives.

Since 2003, SimStudios has been partnering with some of the most successful companies globally to craft business simulations that are used to create experiences that apply corporate leadership development programs and corporate strategic change initiatives. By design, we’re boutique (no plans on changing this), highly rated, and easy to work with by providing an exceptionally high degree of personal attention. We’re a small group of past executives who help other companies engage, delight, and successfully change with the corporate needs.
