Bill Sherman - Thought Leadership Leverage

Bill Sherman


As the COO of Thought Leadership Leverage, Bill Sherman rescues smart business ideas—which are often trapped on the written page or the keynote stage—and evolves them into tools that transform enterprise organizations.

For almost 20 years, Bill has gathered consulting and business expertise through a variety of entrepreneurial and operational roles and experiences from instructional design and learning product development to marketing strategy and execution to organizational development and transformation consulting. A highlight of his recent experience has been working with business leaders, speakers, authors, academics, and other consultants to help connect their ideas with a platform that supports content creation and enterprise-ready product development.

Bill infuses creativity and innovative thinking into his consulting approach. Doing so helps build bridges between ideas and action to drive business results through thought leadership. He also harnesses the power of co-creation to create scalable, innovative products that make maximum impact for clients.

As the COO of Thought Leadership Leverage, Bill leads the work of a team of highly-skilled designers and consultants. Together, they:

  • Work with world-class, top business leaders and CEOs to translate thought leadership into growth strategies that produce tangible and extraordinary business results.
  • Take clients on a journey to deconstruct their actions and ideas to turn them into true, expansive thought leadership.
  • Help experts inside organizations leverage their knowledge and subject matter expertise to grow and innovate their business.
  • Engage with “classic” thought leaders – authors, speakers, academics – to clarify and codify their ideas as well as capture the personality of the content so enterprise engagement is scalable and turnkey.

Bill is a versatile, passionate leader, consultant, and guide for clients and his team. Through working with sole proprietors through Fortune 100 clients over the past two decades, he’s had a front-row seat to the complexity and changing world of business as well as the inner workings of organizations.

Our Partners

We have much experience in-house to serve you, but occasionally a different kind of expertise is required.

You are a busy person but the next item in your leveraging strategy is to write a book. That takes a lot of time. We can make a connection to well-respected ghost writers, easing the schedule burden on you.

Our connections with publishers (traditional, self and hybrid) can smooth the launch of that new book. We can introduce you to leading publicists.

Having trouble putting your thoughts and ideas for a new keynote into the structure you want. We partner with top-level speech writers and communication experts.

We partner with videographers and graphic artists to produce training videos and workshops. If a client wants more classroom-based training than you can provide, we can bring in professional trainers to meet that requirement.

There’s not much we can’t help with. If we don’t have the expertise in-house or available from one of our many partners, we can find the right resource to meet the need.
