Leaders in Action provides world-class digital styling and coaching for executives, coaches, authors and speakers looking to elevate their engagement with their key audiences - whether that be investors, analysts, the media, consumers , or employees.
Put your best virtual face forward with a personally designed digital video studio for Zoom, Teams, etc. or harness the power of today's digital tools and strategy through a private coaching session.
We also offer new custom designed printed backgrounds which can be hung in your studio. These prints create incredibly realistic backgrounds that allow you to escape the limits of your physical space and ensure your style and brand consistently shine.
Don't get left behind. Take the lead with leaders in action.
Our approach is to expand executives' digital communication awareness and skillset while enabling them to develop the techniques and tactics that take them from good to great as effective communicators. With our carefully curated partnerships, any solutions coming out of coaching sessions can be realized by our partners.
Most internal communication teams are focused on traditional channels and lack the expertise to teach, guide, and co-create cutting-edge digital solutions. This is exactly where Leaders in Action fits in.

“Because I spend all day on video with clients and webinars around the world, looking professional and high-end is critical! Bill is an outstanding digital communications consultant and stylist and has helped so many of my friends and colleagues with their setups. It is always a joy to work with Bill as he is easy-going, ready to help with any changes or tech support, and knowledgeable on the process from start to finish. Bill even helped to find me a local tech assistant for video editing and studio support!
Bill has gone above and beyond to provide the highest quality service and I highly recommend him to anyone in need of boosting their virtual presence.“

“Once the pandemic hit, I was unsure how to set up my new studio. I was surrounded by a confusing array of equipment.
After wasting months on trial and error with studio design, I still wasn’t pleased with the impression I was creating with my CMO clients and virtual keynotes.
I had a breakthrough moment after Bill and I worked on the first phase of studio redesign. One of my biggest West Coast clients immediately commented how I looked radiant and sharp!
Thank you Bill! You are now my game-changing media adviser and digital influence guru!“

"With all the time I spend on Zoom, I quickly realized that I needed to up my game. I started using a better webcam than my MacBook, and a better mic. And while the results were definitely better, it was still mediocre. What it means to look professional - to be professional - has changed. And a webcam doesn’t cut it. So I reached out to Bill Connolly. The man is a wizard. A kind, knowledgable, smart, gracious wizard. After a few conversations, he sent me a list of what I should buy - which turned out to be much less expensive than I expected - and then he helped me set it all up, refine it, and get comfortable with it. 100% customized to me and my space. It made a HUGE difference. Immediately noticeable. It’s rare that I’m on a videoconference call and someone doesn’t ask if I’m in a studio. It’s not a subtle difference, it’s a game changer. Videoconferencing is not going away. It’s really a no-brainer to get Bill’s help - it made all the difference to me, my clients, and my business. Thank you Bill!!"

"I had the pleasure of working with Bill for over 10 years, first with Black & Decker, then with Stanley, and finally with Spectrum Brands. Working in the manufacturing and consumer products space, over half of our employees were front-line team members who worked in distribution centers or production facilities across the globe. Bill was a miracle worker! As an internal communications leader, one of my biggest challenges is finding innovative, genuine, impactful ways to connect with employees. Through video storytelling and dynamic content, Bill was able to help us clearly show our organizational culture in action, actively demonstrate our leaders' commitment to transparent and authentic communication, and help employees at every level in the organization understand how their specific role contributed to our business strategy and purpose. If you have responsibility for communications, organizational culture, employee engagement, or simply ensuring that your team experiences your message in the best way possible, your first call should be to Bill!"
