Powerful content: Attendees of his powerful conference keynotes, concurrent sessions, workshops, training courses and in-service meetings consider him to be one of the best trainers in the country. He deftly leverages his twelve years of board service, two as State President of the Louisiana School Boards Association, to create his “Children First” philosophy. In his training sessions and board retreats, Billy shares methods to build board unity and teamwork; grow leadership skills; avoid conflict; bring visionary thinking to the forefront, work effectively with the superintendent, and to clarify roles and responsibilities of board members to ensure stronger, more productive and more cohesive relationships.

Expertise that counts: Over the past 28 years, Billy has presented at National School Board Association (NSBA) Conventions, NSBA President’s Retreats, State Association Conventions, and worked directly with a wide spectrum of school boards in a retreat setting. He is the author of a large volume of articles published in the American School Board Journal and in a number of state association magazines. Because of his expertise on school board service, he provides candid commentary on the right way to serve children, parents, school employees, and fellow board members.

Billy’s retreats: Board members attending his retreats feel better prepared and more confident in their ability to avoid the pitfall of “board politics” freeing them from political pressures that all too often plague elected officials.

School District Administrators

Billy brings an impressive resume as a classroom teacher, coach, school board member, and senior corporate manager to his training sessions. Combining these experiences, Billy provides leadership insights from both an education and business prospective.

Lessons and laughs. He shares real-world leadership skills, not pie-in-the-sky theories. He provides detailed handouts designed to allow attendees to implement the skills and knowledge learned and affect long-term, positive change both personally and professionally. With tremendous humor and a down-to-earth delivery style Billy also uses creative visuals to reinforce his message along with interactive exercises, and a little laugh-out-loud fun as he shares some of infamous stories of the most famous Cajuns in the world, Boudreaux, Thibodaux and their friends.
