Facts about Bill Lewis

A mission-driven trainer

“I love training people,” Bill says. “I love sharing knowledge and maybe to a fault, talk too much.” As an instructor, Bill is extremely focused and mission driven, which he puts down to his military background. He is also aware that learning the finer points of project management is a challenge.

“I am a little empathetic but also very demanding,” he adds. “The assumption for my students is that they know how to manage a project; they just need to know how to pass the PMP exam.”

Travelling with the military

Bill grew up in Kansas and Georgia in the USA and swam competitively for 10 years. “As a military brat, our family moved many times,” he says, “and I followed that pattern with a military career which saw my family move many times as well.”

Bill was stationed in Georgia, Kansas, Texas, Germany, Saudi Arabia, and Turkey.

Based in the US, with international family

Bill lives in Olathe, Kansas (the Kansas City area) with his spouse Betsy. He has been there over 20 years. “I was born in Germany and adopted,” he says. “I have a large family. I have four grown children and 10 grandchildren. I have one sister in the US and eight half-sisters in Germany, North Carolina and New Jersey. I also have three half-brothers in North Carolina and Germany.”

Outside of work

Now in semi-retirement, Bill plays “fun” golf, confesses to spending “way too much time” playing computer games and lately has been making furniture for his media room.
