About The Podcast
Billy Blanchard inherited a proud legacy indeed—that of his father James Blanchard, the Georgia business icon who led Synovus Financial Corporation through an era of rapid growth and created a forum at Columbus State University to promote the principles of servant leadership. But that still left Billy with the question of how to pass that legacy on to his own children—and what kind of a new legacy to create for himself. In this podcast, Billy talks with Paul Amos about the values he inherited from his parents and the values he’s trying to instill in his kids in an often difficult and unforgiving world.
