Speaking Topics:

Building a Kick Ass Company

We all want to be part of a companies that matter, ones that are more than just a place where work gets done, but instead leave a lasting legacy. We call these Kick Ass companies that know their true purpose, that have leaders that people follow because they believe in them and teams that say ‘yes’ even before they know what their leaders need from them. In order to build a Kick Ass company, you must achieve three objectives: Find Your Mojo, build Legendary Leaders, and create Hell Yeah Teams. In essence, whether you are a leader or an employee, through nurturing and building on core company beliefs, you all play a role in the success of the company. Giving teams the tools and knowledge they need to be awesome creates engaged employees who want to ‘give’ to the company. Gary will walk you through the key components of building a Kick Ass company and the steps needed to unlock the power in yours. You will go home with a new perspective on how to build your company from within!

Screw Resiliency  Don't just survive, rock!

With industry downturns, the accelerating pace of change and constantly evolving business practices, resiliency has become the golden child of business. No doubt a valuable quality in people, but should it be our end game? Resiliency isn’t a never-ending spring we can drink from to protect ourselves. Even the most positive people will eventually become drained, stressed and discouraged, harming both them and the organization. The best organizations look past building mere resilient cultures to ones that inspire and energize employees. Yes, we all need to be prepared to be knocked around once in a while, but employees shouldn’t be stepping into the ring each day at work. Employees will learn how they can re-focus their thinking, behaviours, and actions to help transform their cultures into spaces that allow them and others to thrive instead.

Creating Raving Fans

A fundamental truth exists; we are in business to take care of the customer. Great businesses know this is their competitive advantage and with competition so stiff in business today, the client knows this as well. We have flexibility and responsiveness on our side. And yet we are plagued with stories of horrendous service that exists every day. Creating Raving Fans looks at building long-term loyalty by delivering service from a customers’ perspective while measuring the impact that service—or lack thereof—has on our bottom line. This thought- provoking, entertaining presentation will leave you confident that you truly are the moment of truth with the people that matter most: your customers.

Awesome People Build Awesome Companies  It starts with you

At its core, a company will always be people serving and helping other people. Business is innately human and we have to remember to keep this at the forefront of our thinking. The most important person in any business is not the customer, it’s you. If you want to build a great company, you must have individuals within that company who feel great about themselves first. Awesome people build awesome companies. The attitude, behaviours and actions of each individual will influence not only those who do business with you, but become the example that others follow in the company as well.

In this presentation, we’ll talk about the importance of focusing on personal growth as a valuable business strategy and the impact in can have on the company and each person’s life. It’s no longer about “working to live” or “living to work”, it’s just about living.
