Leadership is the solution to every problem. Billy has learned about this first-hand and he believes that we are all called to be leaders.

Billy will show how you and your organization can gain traction, through fundamental leadership success strategies, in order to answer the call to leadership and achieve peak performance.
Who is your most important boss? That person should be you! You must work harder on yourself than you do on your job. You only have two choices in life: Grow, or decline? It is your responsibility as an employee and as a leader to choose growth. If you don’t grow, you go! In this motivational and educational keynote, I will share with you my story of growth and how you can make changes today to become the boss of your life. Decide today to be the boss of you. Decide today to be GREAT!
This presentation is based on Billy’s first book. Billy will take you through the Seeds of Success and weave in personal stories to make his points. It will serve as a wake-up call to those struggling with priorities. He will help you understand that “What Matters Most” is a focus rather than a question.
Are you so busy doing everything that you don’t get anything done? Sometimes you must slow down in order to move forward. Sometimes you must retreat. Billy talks about the importance of slowing down and how that can help you discover your life’s purpose.
Billy can also customize a presentation for your group about a variety of topics including: Leadership, Goal Setting, Personal Responsibility, Culture, Change, Time Management, Purpose, What Matters Most, Communication, Teamwork, and Coaching.
