Billy Arcement


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. He is especially recognized for his in-depth understanding of school board responsibilities. And, for the past 25 years, he has shared his “Children First” philosophy with school board members across America.

He is the author of 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 by the end of 2016. The American Business Journal On-line publication distributes his leadership column to thousands each month.
