About Billy–The Candid Cajun


Like you, leadership expert and professional speaker Billy Arcement, has seen many forms of leadership. Is it political savvy? Is it discipline or risk taking? Is it learned or a genetic code? Is it only reserved for a select few? Is it better suited for the ambitious? Is it being able to persuade others?

Billy held senior corporate management positions for three decades. These years provided “hands on” day-to-day real-world leadership challenges. Today he uses the wisdom gained from his corporate years to serve his clients. He speaks and consults with leaders and shares his unique take on leading others—Cajun Candor. With refreshing honesty, he is able to look at leadership through his unique “leadership lens.” Billy views leadership as needing to focus on service to others. It’s not about YOU but the people you serve. He sees leadership as an earned title, not one used to impart fear in others or demand respect for the position. Leadership is a privilege and an obligation. It’s caring, teaching and developing the best a person has to offer.

Billy possesses abilities to grasp what’s happening and to apply solutions. He is most noted for his candid insights to improve performance and grow teamwork. His training sessions are rich in content, humor, and filled with challenging ideas. He knows how to make the “people connection” with integrity, deep caring and a sincere desire to help. And, his clients appreciate the customized conversations and attention to detail he provides.

He authored the internationally published book, Searching for Success. He co-authored, Journeying on Holy Ground, a book about setting life’s priorities. His newest book, Leading Yourself, Leading Others is due out in the fall of 2017. The American Business Journal On-line publication distributes his leadership columns across America to thousands each month.

Corporate clients include Stone Energy, Entercom Entertainment, Louisiana Cat, Douglas Publications and Five Guys Restaurants. The Missouri Emergency Preparedness Association, HUD, USDA profited from his governmental leadership strategies. The National School Boards Association and many state associations recognize his in-depth understanding of school board responsibilities. They especially like his Children First philosophy, it’s all about children, not politics!

He is a charter member (31 yrs.) of the National Speakers Association New Orleans chapter. His   award in his honor. He is also 37 year member of the National Speakers Association.

Billy’s life contains a long list of leadership accomplishments. This translates to presentations that are not theory but the truth as he sees and lives each day. He is a leadership expert. He is a Leader’s Leader. He is the Candid Cajun!

You helped our members get a better focus on their business strategies while making the two hours together a fun afternoon. I was also impressed with the depth of information in your handout. And, oh yes, your funny ‘Boudreaux’ stories were a hit with everyone. Mark Beilman, Ex. Dir. Reprographic Services Association, Columbia, SC
