Bruce Piasecki - Motivational Speaker - Doing More with Less

Bruce Piasecki - Motivational Speaker - Doing More with Less

Dr. Bruce Piasecki is the president and founder of AHC Group, Inc., a management consulting firm specializing in energy, materials, and environmental corporate matters, whose clients range from Suncor Energy and the Warren Buffett firm Shaw Industries, to Toyota and other global companies.

Piasecki is the author of several seminal books on business strategy, valuation, and corporate change, including the Nature Society's book of the year, In Search of Environmental Excellence: Moving Beyond Blame as well as the recent New York Times, USA Today, and Wall Street Journal bestseller Doing More With Less.

Since 1981, he has advised companies about the critical areas of corporate governance, energy, environmental strategy, product innovation, and sustainability strategy.

Going Global, Going Green

Piasecki outlines the impact the 300 largest companies worldwide have on a modern global society. Having rejuvenated corporate strategies for international brands such as Toyota and Hewlett Packard, his firsthand perspective deconstructs a new driving force in capitalism: competing on a playing field built on social needs. From balancing the conditions of employee living to making environmentally conscious business decisions, Piasecki speaks to organizations about the lessons we can learn from businesses of every size, and on a global scale.

Social Leaders and Business Leaders: Cut from the Same Cloth?

Piasecki discusses the qualities of a good leader when faced with potential crises, and the natural reactions of panic and resolve. The similarities of leaders in a political arena and leaders in the corporate sector are striking, and Piasecki presents his insights on competing in today's marketplace, along with personal anecdotes and industry examples. His benchmark set of workshops, the Corporate Affiliates Program, examines the characteristics of popular leaders vs. unpopular leaders, of successful management vs. failed direction, in everyone from CEOs to heads of state.

To Master the Task of Tomorrow, Manage the Challenge Today

Piasecki addresses two questions: What is social response capitalism, and what is it doing to my wallet? In order to reshape capitalism, he explains, the best organizations now compete on more precise social requirements than supply vs. demand or price vs. quality. His lecture analyzes the need for increased mobility, cleaner energy, and technological aids for the needy.

Recruiting and Retaining Talent in Modern Times

Piasecki talks about how becoming a leader with innovation and gravitas may not be enough in an ever more severe, always changing, contemporary world market. Instead, he notes that the job calls for someone who can bring passion and focus to superior products, and who can cultivate a workforce dedicated to the same set goal. Understanding the new rules of global competition, the swiftness of disclosures, and the profoundness of business challenges and conditions is one thing, but the application to make it work requires leadership with a solid foundation and structure, something Piasecki refers to in his lectures as the corporate mansions leading the charge.

Developing Leaders We Can Trust

Piasecki articulates the tenets of a good leader this speech, using Abraham Lincoln and Winston Churchill as his models. His message also draws from personal experience living and learning in management positions. The role and goal of a leader is to find new paths to success and grow business in all situations and conditions, and Piasecki offers ten take-home lessons that help pave the way.

Money Doesn't Manage Itself

Piasecki tailors this lecture to the particular industry he speaks before. Coming from both an inside and an outside perspective, he dissects the business of an organization. His observations on the new global-equity culture are reminiscent of a bird's-eye-view, akin to police helicopters hovering above the crimes of corporate self-regulation. He helps audiences understand the potency and sustainability of multinational companies to better invest in them, in order to generate more opportunities for innovation.
