Speech Topics

-We've been interviewing quite a few very successful CEO's, and actually putting many on them on video (will send you samples when we're complete with production). I mention that in that I'm seeing similar patterns that they think about that would be a very good topic for the right audience: "What Successful CEO's Think About, and What You Can Learn from Them."

  • I was interviewed by Entrepreneur Magazine yesterday in response to a post I published on LinkedIn titled "How do you answer the question: What does your company do?" The ability to succinctly answer that question, or what your product/service does, should be simple. I can tell you from our clients, published statistics, and many customers with whom we've done research: it's rare that companies and sellers do that well. Once the article is closer to being published, I'll send you a link, if you have interest.

-The work I'm directly involved in focuses on helping CEO's (as well as their boards, and often their investors) diagnose the sources and barriers to growth. As with my first point above, there are, again, similar patterns. We not only measure the problems, but we get directly involved in helping them resolve the problems and barriers. Doing that work translates into how quickly and successfully they grow, as many of them want to prepare their company to be sold. Fixing the problems the manner in which we do translates into a higher sale price for the business, and more wealth for the business owner. That's a topic near and dear to most business owner - how do they realize full value for the work they've spent years trying to create.
