THERE’S ALWAYS A WAY: HOW TO CULTIVATE PERSEVERANCE AND PERSISTENCE DURING UNCERTAIN TIMES

The pace of change in the business world is faster than ever. It has never been more critical to an organization’s survival for teams to cultivate a DNA of resiliency, perseverance, and solution-orientated problem solving.

In this empowering keynote, bestselling author Alex Banayan masterfully decodes the most critical and elusive skills needed for any organization to cultivate the mindsets of exponential growth, particularly during times of rapid change and uncertainty.

After interviews with Bill Gates, Steve Wozniak, and dozens more of the world’s most iconic leaders, Banayan uncovered that there are fundamental skills that every organization needs—but that most people don’t talk about—to achieve their biggest goals during disruptive times. This keynote covers it all, with lessons including:

• How do you transform persistence from being an esoteric word to being a living, breathing part of your day-to-day culture?
• What are the unspoken dangers of over-persistence and how can you prevent them at your organization?
• Why is the opposite of success not failure—and how does that shift in mindset help your employees take more risks and grow exponentially?
• What’s the surprising difference between fearlessness and courage—and why does that critical difference lead to consistent breakthroughs in organizations of all sizes?

If you care about elevating your business—if you care about your employees being more resilient, more courageous, and more capable of making smart, innovative decisions—this keynote is what you’ve been waiting for


V.I.S.T.A. STORYTELLING FOR BUSINESS GROWTH: HOW TO TRANSFORM YOUR ORGANIZATION AND ELEVATE YOUR CAREER USING THE 5 KEYS OF RADICALLY COMPELLING STORIES

The world has never been noisier.

How do you command the attention of your customers, sales prospects, strategic partners, or industry at-large? Once you have their attention, how do you transform those stakeholders into lifelong advocates for you and your business?

After a decade of researching the world’s most successful leaders and organizations, bestselling author Alex Banayan uncovered what the single most underrated skill is that can radically boost the growth of any company’s sales, marketing, or business development efforts.

The secret is storytelling—but not just any kind. Banayan’s research led him to decode the keys to remarkably compelling, gripping, and emotional storytelling that can be used by businesses of all sizes to supercharge their goals. This is a specific, teachable skill set that can transform prospects into blue-chip clients and customers into evangelists, and can inject an entirely new sense of possibility into the DNA of your company culture.

Drawing from his years of research and the international success of The Third Door’s unique narrative style, Banayan distills in this keynote how anyone in your organization—from C-suite executives to your newest team members—can use the five elements of Banayan’s V.I.S.T.A. Storytelling Framework to transform your business.

Because at the end of the day, everything in life and business comes down to a story. And it’s time your organization uses that to its advantage.


THE THIRD DOOR FOR TOP-LINE GROWTH: HOW TO RE-TRAIN AND RE-INVIGORATE YOUR TEAM TO FIND A WAY THROUGH ANY DOOR

What happens when some of the hardest-to-reach people are your prospects? How does a salesperson or financial advisor persevere through the inevitable onslaught of rejections? Sometimes sales pipelines feel like pipedreams. Often weeks and months are spent on a deal, only for it to fall through at the last minute. Over time, the sting of rejection can multiply until it becomes crippling.

After seven years of learning directly from the most successful entrepreneurs on earth, bestselling author Alex Banayan gained invaluable sales lessons from Microsoft founder Bill Gates, Zappos CEO Tony Hsieh, and dozens more.

In this empowering keynote, Banayan shows teams how to deploy new approaches to establishing relationships with leads so that you’re more than just another name in an inbox, from re-imagining prospect meetings to making a lasting impression.

His presentation also sheds light on new frameworks to view rejections and failures, offering surprising insights on what to do next. Audiences come away with practical tools to apply the Third Door™ framework to their sales process, including:

• Finding your “Inside Man”
• Overcoming “The Flinch”
• Utilizing “Borrowed Credibility”
• The surprising science of cold emails
