Bill makes much of God in his life and business but little of himself. He is an example to us of what being in business to the glory of God looks like in real life.

Bill Leonard received the Infinitely Beyond Award from Convene, the premier Christian CEO and Business Owner forum organization, at their 7th annual CEO Summit in Newport Beach, California.
Selected from hundreds of members, Convene’s Infinitely Beyond Award recognizes up to 3 members annually for the extraordinary life and work they’re partnering with God to accomplish. The award is named from a scripture recognizing that God’s plans and power are greater for us than we can imagine:
“Now glory be to God, who by his mighty power at work within us is able to do far more than we would ever dare to ask or even dream of—infinitely beyond our highest prayers, desires, thoughts, or hopes.” Ephesians 3:20 TLB
Recipients have gone above and beyond in their businesses, communities and ministries. Each recipient is nominated by their peers and then their qualifications are reviewed and validated to confirm their exceptional service.
Bill Leonard leveraged his business as a Tenant Representative, for high technology companies in the Atlanta area, into an opportunity to build relationships with the landlords and executives he came in contact with. These relationships became a natural platform for Bill to start the High Technology Prayer Breakfast. For over 20 years this prayer breakfast has featured an address by a nationally recognized technology executive along with a personal story from a local executive that includes a clear presentation of the gospel of Jesus Christ. This has resulted in numerous instances of personal conversion to Christ as well as heartfelt stories of recovery and restoration.
Bill Leonard is an active Convene member who is committed to excellence, serving others, and a complete integration of faith in his life and business.
“Bill makes much of God in his life and business but little of himself. He is an example to us of what being in business to the glory of God looks like in real life,” said fellow Convene member Adam Strange.
Founded in 1996, Convene is a dynamic community of Christian CEOs and business owners meeting together to help each other build exceptional businesses, increase leadership success, and have greater Kingdom impact through the principle of “iron sharpening iron.”
