Leadership Credentials

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?

For over 30 years he held senior corporate leadership positions. These experiences help him 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 to imparting fear in others or demanding 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 is often referred to by clients as a Leader’s Leader. He possesses abilities to grasp what’s happening and to apply solutions. He is most noted for his 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 served 12 years on his local school board. His statewide peers elected him as State President of the Louisiana School Boards Association.

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
