TERRY BOND

When coaching, Terry engages participants by drawing on his extensive career running media companies, sharing insights from his own work at the executive level. In trainings and one-on-one sessions, he helps professionals improve their communication techniques to wow their bosses, clients and investors.

As a media professional, Terry progressed from being a small-town disc jockey to overseeing $200 million in assets as Chief Executive Officer and partner. He has launched three companies and is presently CEO of Go Entertainment Corp. and its subsidiaries, running sales trainings and seminars to help media companies grow their revenue. Previously, he served as President and CEO of Double O Radio and Roberts Radio, media companies with operation oversight of 67 radio stations in twenty-two cities.

In his spare time, Terry is always on the move, whether navigating a biplane from Key West to within 2 miles of Cuba, sailing the West Indies, flying a hot air balloon over the mountains in Tennessee, or remodeling a family home in Virginia. He is also a car enthusiast and drag racer. When he isn’t traveling, Terry resides in Charleston, South Carolina.

"I have had the privilege of working with Terry Bond during two different Own The Room events. The first time I was a participant, and the second time I was supervising Cadets from The Citadel as 26 of them went through the training together to enhance their communications skills. Terry’s coaching style and leadership technique are perfect.  With the utmost courtesy and respect, he challenges you to push past your comfort zone, but he’s always right there with you to provide encouragement and a few extra tips to improve your delivery. First he shows you what to do with a demonstration, then lets you practice the techniques, and finally encourages you to actually employ the method. Bottom line: Terry makes learning to communicate more effectively fun."
