Future-Proofing Your Business: How to prepare you business for tomorrow, today

‘Real-life strategies to prepare your business for tomorrow, today’.

Troy Hazard had bought, grown and sold more companies before his 40th birthday than some business people would even consider in a lifetime.

Troy’s real world experience is the foundation of this keynote presentation, his Amazon bestselling business book of the same title, and his National Network Cable TV Business Talk show in the USA. And it is what has kept audiences engaged in 23 countries.

Through his businesses and working as a consultant for some of the world’s biggest brands Troy has learned the lessons on how to predict issues in business before you need to experience them. This entrepreneurial experience was recognized when he became a leader of leaders as the Global President of The Entrepreneurs’ Organization (www.eonetwork.org).

In this presentation Troy will step through a process to identify if you are driving your business into the future, or into the ground.

Troy’s presentation delivers answers on how to:
- Identify the opportunity in an obstacle to take responsibility for your future
- Break down business barriers created by bad beliefs
- Review you and identify personal purpose as a path to profit
- Create a culture of collaboration
- Use rhythm to create revenue resilience
- Embrace evolution to lead the revolution

Purpose, Passion, People and Profits: Guiding your business with clarity and vision into a more purposeful and profitable future

‘Guiding your business with clarity and vision to a more profitable future!’

What if you knew the ‘one thing’ that would show your business the path out of the GLOOM and into the BOOM? Serial entrepreneur Troy Hazard believes the answer is not found within something you seek, but more in something you already have and may have forgotten.

Troy is an entrepreneurial veteran who had bought, sold and grown more companies before his 40th birthday than some business people would even consider in a lifetime. As a result he has seen his fair share of cycles in the economy. In the first recession of the late 80’s he lost $250,000. In the second one in the mid 90’s the amount was closer to $1 million. In the tech wreck and the more recent correction of 2008, it was an entirely different outcome!

It was through these tough lessons early in his business career, that he developed a powerful personal strategy that helped him unlock greater purpose. This strategy reignited his passion and in turn that of the people he led, so he could go on to grow and develop a series of successful profitable companies over the course of a decade.

In this keynote Troy provides simple steps to the clarity of vision you need to give your business a more purposeful view of the future. He will show you how to:

- Unlock the true value of the clarity of vision
- Find your personal purpose
- Use passion to drive power
- Inspire the people you lead to have the same vision, purpose and passion
- Master the strategy of profits to the POWER of 3

Revenue through Relationships: The six degrees of customer connection

‘Developing significant customer connection.’

In a world of connectivity, why is it that we sometimes fail to really ‘connect’ as humans? In our personal lives we all enjoy relationships that revolve around authenticity, honesty, openness, vulnerability, and respect. Yet in business we often treat the development of key relationships as a mechanical, somewhat technical event, as opposed to an emotional bond with another person. Why?

Given the new normal for business is faster, better, yesterday, it’s no surprise that the way we interact with our customer base has changed. However, the core reason for them wanting to connect has not.

Troy will demonstrate how to develop effective and efficient strategies to embrace the true emotion of a relationship in business and harness that with the technology we have come to rely on so heavily.

He will offer real world examples of what he has done in his businesses to not only stay relevant to his customer base, but also remain significant, in turn facilitating extraordinary growth.

Troy’s presentation delivers answers for how to:

- Identify the 5 key reasons why people do business with you
- Develop the 6 relationships that drive revenue in your business
- Use the new voice of word of mouth
- Talk TO your customers not AT them
- Maintain relationships that are emotive, distinctive, and collaborative

Stronger Together: Unlock the power of unity in your business through shared vision, values and victory++

‘Unlocking the power of unity in your business.’

Doing more with less, pushing harder for the same results, and asking your people to conquer an increasingly competitive market requires a cohesive team, working in a collaborative, constructive, and unified culture. Sounds easy…right?

All too often business leaders talk about unity in the business, but fail to identify what will actually unify those they lead. The key is to match personal and business Visions, Values and Victories.

In this presentation Troy will reveal the 5 steps to creating a true culture of unity in your business. He will draw from 25 years as a business leader in the 11 companies he has owned, and offer real world examples of how to develop a Stronger Together mentality and strategy in your business. He will also step you through the Stronger Together strategies he has developed for some of the world’s greatest brands; how they worked, why they worked and for whom they worked. Troy’s presentation gives clarity to why UNITY starts with “U” and the power for how to:

- Align personal Vision with business vision to deliver clarity of purpose
- Develop a strategy for sharing Values to create ‘culture consensus’
- Leverage a mindset of shared responsibility to share Victory
- Implement Stronger Together as a sustainable strategy in your business

Speed Leading: The 4 key character traits to become a better leader, faster

‘How to become a better leader, faster!’

Leading people is tough, particularly in changing times. Everyone has an opinion on how to lead, and what makes a good leader. So, what is the best way to become a better leader, faster? Ask a leader of leaders. Troy Hazard is a business veteran with eleven companies he has founded, built and sold over 20 years.

His entrepreneurial and leadership excellence was recognized when he was elected Global President of the Entrepreneurs’ Organization (https://www.eonetwork.org). This group is comprised of some of the world’s greatest business leaders, employing 1.7 million people around the world with combined revenue of $160 billion. In short, Troy has proven himself in one of the toughest leadership roles on the planet.

In this session, Troy will explain why the speed of your personal evolution as a leader has a direct impact on the evolution of your business and those you lead.

Armed with this information you will quickly become more focused, balanced, aware and effective. Troy’s presentation delivers real life leadership strategies to maximize your impact as a leader, faster. Learn how to:

- Become aware of your own leadership evolution
- Lead in truth, not fear
- Implement the 4 key character traits of a true leader, from a true leader
- Hire, inspire, and emotionally engage staff in good, and in tough times
- Share and create a culture of conscious collaboration
- Manage personal growth with business growth
- Lead, with speed

Embrace Evolution: Will your business be first to change, or first to die?

'Be first to change or first or DIE!’

It’s a fact - change is constant, change is inevitable, change is good… Unless, of course, it’s forced.

As business leaders we’d all love to tell our team to Change or DIE! For many years this was the catch cry in Troy Hazard’s businesses - until he learned that the more effective way to facilitate change was to ‘embrace evolution’.

Through his 20 years as a business consultant and business owner of eleven companies Troy has turned around countless businesses. His philosophy is that you make change a consciousness in the business, not just an action. And to do that, you need to embrace evolution.

In this presentation Troy will walk you down the path to conscious change. He will identify the killers of change and how to avoid them, the drivers of change and how to harness them, the facilitators of change and how to inspire them, and how to put this all into your master P.L.A.N.

Troy’s presentation delivers real life lessons for how to:

- Avoid the 4 key things that cripple a culture of conscious change
- Develop evolutionary awareness in your business
- Create a culture in your business that drives change
- Hire and inspire team members to be evolutionary
