About William M. Windsor

  • PDF
 

I am just a reasonably normal father, and grandfather.

I began my career as a junior at Texas Tech University.  I became involved in the T-shirt business in college, and after several years as a retailer, wholesaler, and manufacturer, I launched the trade magazine and trade show for the industry.  I am considered by many to be the father of the multi-billion dollar "imprinted sportswear industry."  I started other magazines and shows, and sold the company and "retired" at the age of 33.

My retirement didn't last long.  I have owned and/or operated many magazines and trade shows, travel businesses, retail stores, manufacturing companies, printing company, typesetting business, advertising agency, marketing companies, convention services businesses, souvenir and gift businesses, tourist attractions, resort businesses,  music businesses, computer software company, a consulting company, a food franchise, internet businesses, and more.  I have written numerous articles, books, training programs, and manuals.  In have spoken at conferences and trade shows across North America and in Europe, Australia, and China.

From 1992 to 1996, I was President of Advanstar Expositions, a company owned at the time by Goldman Sachs.  Advanstar was one of the largest producers of trade shows and conferences in the world.  From 1996 to 2001, I was CEO of 1st Communications, a company owned by Bain Capital, Triumph Capital Group, and me.  1st Communications made a series of multi-million dollar acquisitions to build one of the largest trade show businesses -- the largest in terms of the number of annual events.  1st Communications also developed one of the first online job and resume businesses using a network of over 1,000 web sites.  That business was sold to The Washington Post in 2001, and I "retired" to Atlanta, Georgia to be near grandchildren-to-be.   I have two children, and two incredible granddaughters.

I discovered corruption in the federal courts in Atlanta, Georgia, and I will not stop until these judges are exposed for the world to see.  My friends will tell you that I am as tenacious as they come.  I will spend the rest of my life on this if necessary.

I am not an attorney.  I was accepted to law school but decided to go into business instead.  Over the last five years, I have gotten quite a legal education.  At this point, I am confident that I can do a better job than any attorney would, and I work cheap.

I come from a media family.  My father was one of the pioneers of the television industry.  He was the President of the ABC Television station in Orlando for the last 15 years of his career.  My brother was a TV news anchorman and trainer of news, weather, and sportscasters.  I was a radio and tv announcer  in high school and college.

I started several companies in college.  I was accepted to law school.  Thank heavens I went into business instead.

I was a magazine publishing company owner / publisher for 30 years.  I have been the publisher of over 100 magazines.  I have also been a trade show / conference producer for 30 years.  I have been a speaker at conferences all around the world.  I have lectured at major universities.  I am the author of hundreds of magazine articles, books, manuals, conference programs.

I am an expert in SWOT Analysis -- Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities, Threats.  I have written hundreds of business plans for small start-ups to multi-billion dollar businesses.  I have built internet sites that generate over 1,600,000 users per month.

From 2008 to 2010, I led a successful effort to clean up corruption in Ontario Canada.

I worked full-time during college. My first two years I worked as an announcer at radio and television stations.  I had a television talk show in the summer of 1970 on the ABC station in orlando, Florida.  The last two years were spent owning and operating a T-shirt and gift business, a bail bond service for students, and a retail store selling a variety of student-oriented products. I was also the Texas representative for College Marketing Research - reponsible for obtaining over 10,000 credit card applications for Humble Oil, conducting campus surveys for magazines, and more. I was accepted to law school but decided I enjoyed making money too much to spend two years studying night and day.

Judicial Corruption is rampant.  Our rights to a fair trial are a myth.  Many judges are totally corrupt.

Constitution

Our fundamental rights have been taken away by a government of wrongs. Stolen by corruption.

Attorneys

Misconduct is everywhere. Dishonesty abounds. Perjury, subornation of perjury, corruption!

Police

Abuse, Dishonesty, Corruption.  It's all common with Police and Law Enforcement.

Government

Government Dishonesty is Bad.
We must find honest people
and make them accountable
to We the People.
