Keynote Speakers


Esteb-Bill

Mr. William Esteb worked as the creative director for various advertising agencies in Denver, Seattle, and San Francisco, and was introduced to chiropractic in 1981 when he was asked to write what became known as the Peter Graves video for Renaissance International. Later, he got together with two chiropractors and formed Back Talk Systems. For 10 years he was the creative force behind this patient education resource company.

In 1999 Mr. Esteb sold his interest in Back Talk Systems to start Patient Media, Inc., focusing on patient education and communications tools that feature high impact graphics. In 2004 he co-founded Perfect Patients, an interactive website service which manages the online reputations of over 2,000 chiropractors in the United States, Canada, Australia, New Zealand and the United Kingdom. In 2011 Mr. Esteb co-founded The Paperwork Project which supplies state-of-the-art chiropractic paperwork and documentation resources at www.ChiropracticPaperwork.com.

Mr. Esteb has authored 11 books that explore the doctor/patient relationship from a patient’s point of view. His weekly blog posts at www.PatientMedia.com and his Monday Morning Motivation emails are ways he shares his three decades of experience as a chiropractic patient and advocate. When he isn’t writing about chiropractic or speaking about chiropractic, he can be found thinking about chiropractic—from a patient’s point of view.
