A lifelong learner with a diverse background of business experience, Bill Lee knows the power that positive thoughts, feelings, and actions have on today’s business leaders. At the age of 21, Bill decided to seize the opportunity to take over the family business of farming – after borrowing all the capital he could. Well-versed in overcoming the trials and tribulations of operating a business – including surviving the economic hardship of the 2001 and 2002 drought years and the 2003 cattle market crash – Bill has come to realize that setbacks are not failures, they are learning experiences.

An advocate for the mantra that “life is an adventure to be enjoyed”, Bill’s professional career has encompassed the callings of a pilot, mayor, councillor, business coach, speaker, and long-time board member of United Farmers of Alberta – a member-owned agriculture co-operative dedicated to serving and building prosperity in Alberta’s rural communities.

With 35 years of experience in leadership coaching, keynote speaking, and facilitating the development of today’s business leaders, few are more qualified than Bill to share the formula for personal – and professional – success.

TEC Group Vision

A firm believer that people are a product of their surroundings, Bill seeks to harness the power of business connection within his TEC group. As someone who knows first-hand the isolation that comes with positions of entrepreneurship and business operations, Bill’s members are always equipped with a supportive group to help solve any problem.
