The Three Gems Of Perseverance

Would you believe that I decided to quit the UGG business four times in the 17 years I spent building it? Learn the powerful philosophical truths that kept me “keeping on” to overcome seemingly impossible barriers and apparent defeat. Accentuated by real life stories from the early days of UGG, I take the audience on a trail of highs and lows, problems and solutions, that are applicable to every one of today's businesses, and howexceptional customer service came back to save the company in its direst days. This keynote talk has moved audiences from near-tears to standing ovations, as listeners identify situations in their own businesses and rally to new possibilities.

The Next Big Thing – How To Find An “UGG” Opportunity

Targeted to college students in business and entrepreneurial schools, I explain the main secret for them to discover their own path, and recognize opportunity as it presents itself. Using this secret, I give case studies of how several people have gone from “no clue” to becoming passionate about their chosen fields. I teach the various phases of start-up common to all new businesses and provide solutions.

You Can't Give Birth To Adults –You Are “Here” In The Business Life-Cycle

Every business that exists started with someone “CONCEIVING” the idea. The first action gave “BIRTH” to the business, and invariably the long period of “INFANCY” set in. I describe how to get through this period until the business/service becomes a “TODDLER” then progresses to “YOUTH,” a fairly easy stage of every business. BUT, IF the business/ service is a good one, the “TEENAGE” period can be one of disruption and chaos until the administrators implement the controls that steer the ship to the safe harbor of “MATURITY.” This talk is customized to fit the audience and their stage of development in the cycle.

The Third Island –The Breakout Factor

It takes vision for a corporation to get to the next level. It requires the skills of an “Intrapreneur” and you either have this skill or you don't. If you have it, you have a set of problems how to present it, sell it, and get it implemented. If you don't have the vision, you know who you are, but you also know you are the ones who can IMPLEMENT thevision that has been agreed upon. I teach how to find your visionary by airing the problems and questions facing the corporation and then team up to form an unstoppable alliance. The visionary always needs the support of those who don't have the vision.
