Meet Our Founder

Billy Ray Taylor

Billy Ray Taylor is a global keynote speaker, the author of The Winning Link, and the founder of LinkedXL, a global consulting and software company that empowers organizations to win through strategic implementation of the Connected Business Model.

Prior to launching LinkedXL, he was the North American Director of Goodyear Tire, leading multiple turnarounds and contributing to a dramatic change in the company’s earnings - from -$38 million to over $1 Billion. It was from this experience that he developed the LinkedXL process, a proven system for building business operations systems that win.

Today, he empowers leaders and organizations to implement that process and achieve record-breaking results through keynotes, consulting, thought leadership, and the Connected Business Model software.


Billy's Keynote

How We Win

Defining, Aligning, and Executing Winning Strategies at Every Level of Your Organization

Based on the book The Winning Link

This highly actionable keynote details “How to Win” featuring the LinkedXL process used by countless organizations to finally start winning. Billy details the strategies, mindsets, and processes proven to convert strategy into results, disconnected operations into an aligned enterprise, and a lack of trust into a high-performing, self-sustaining culture of ownership.

This presentation is ideal for leaders and teams who are:

  • Lacking clarity on how to define, align, or execute the strategies that will build trust and deliver sustainable results.
  • Experiencing chaos and collisions rather than efficiency and connection due to misalignment.
  • Constantly reacting to problems but unable to identify the issues that are constraining their performance.

The audience will leave with:

  • A better understanding of how to build and implement a connected business model that will help them win.
  • The motivation and tools for implementing a Daily Management System that empowers their people to execute the right processes.
  • The ability to build the 3D approach-deliberate clarity, deliberate ownership, and deliberate practice-needed to build a winning organization.
