In a world filled with new, ultra-low cost competitors, ever more powerful customers and hyper-competitive markets, innovation is the only way to out-perform the industry average. Based on twenty years of ground-breaking research, and a score of high-profile assignments in some of the world’s most respected companies, Hamel can show you and your colleagues how to:

  • Unlock the innovation potential of every employee,
  • Build a portfolio of high-impact, game-changing strategies,
  • Dramatically multiply the returns on innovation investment,
  • Build management systems that keep everyone focused on innovation, and
  • Manage the day-to-day tension between innovation and operational efficiency.

This critical knowledge can help your organization unleash its full innovation potential.

As the pace of change accelerates, so must the pace of strategic renewal in every organization. All too often deep change is crisis-driven and episodic; too seldom is it opportunity-driven and continuous. Drawing on his pioneering work on strategic “resilience,” Hamel’s can help your company to:

  • Recognize the warning signs of “strategy decay,”
  • Overcome the arrogance and denial that so often frustrates strategic renewal,
  • Build a future-oriented vision that is powerful enough to overcome the gravitational pull of the past,
  • Accelerate the shift of resources from legacy programs to future-oriented initiatives, and
  • Weave the principles of resilience into every management process and practice.

If the goal is a company that can change as fast as change itself, these are essential insights.

Over the past 100 years, the most profound and enduring shifts in competitive position have come from management innovation—dramatic breakthroughs in how companies are managed, led and structured. Based on his most recent research, Hamel has developed a methodology that can help your company build the ultimate competitive advantage—an ability to proactively reinvent its management DNA. Specifically, Hamel can show your company how to:

  • Anticipate the “over-the-horizon” management challenges that will determine success in the years ahead
  • Successfully challenge the outmoded management orthodoxies that limit success,
  • Uncover the new management principles that will determine industry leadership in the future,
  • Build a capability for ongoing management innovation across your company.

In short, Hamel can show your organization how to build tomorrow’s best practices today.

In addition to keynoting, Quentin Hardy often serves as discussion leader, moderator and/or emcee for senior executive events. He has covered topics as far-ranging as corporate reform; the global economy; catastrophe preparedness and lessons from Hurricane Katrina; innovation and the impact of social media. Versatile and skilled, Hardy has interviewed rising entrepreneurs, top CEOs and political leaders alike. He possesses the rare ability to ask the right questions and turn high-level ideas into critical information audiences can readily use.

In today’s business climate every business, institution and household faces the same problem: Whom should I trust and how do I get people to trust me? In the age of Bernie Madoff and the derivatives debacle, it seems like everyone on Wall Street is suspect. Meanwhile, good businesses cannot get loans—thanks to the credit crunch—while a culture of cynicism is fed by gotcha journalists and quick-hit bloggers. This should, can and will end. Quentin Hardy has reported on Japanese financial collapses, the dotcom bubble and today’s financial woes. He shares:

  • His perspective on the technological roots of the problem
  • Insights on the universal practices of trust that must be re-invented
  • How to build better management and business structures that avoid historical repetition

Management guru Peter Drucker called the creation of the computer “the birth of a new basic civilization” in which managers would take on entirely new roles and work would be organized in unforeseen ways. His predictions are coming true as the organization and management of companies such as Google, Cisco and Yahoo! retool their structures aimed at achieving a new level of efficacy. After covering all the major technology players in globally and Silicon Valley, Quentin Hardy provides insights on:

  • What efforts have worked and what has been a dead end
  • Pointers on how communications technologies are used to market internally and externally, winning loyalty and inspiring people
  • A look ahead to what management approaches to expect next from the technology leaders

Most organizations know the metrics used to judge the success of their sales force. What they don’t know is the missing piece—it’s what their sales force DOES. What actions or behaviors generated sales and which, if any, can be repeated to generate the same success? Steve Harvill and his company, Creative Ventures, conducted a 2-year study into 7 different industries interviewing their top producers to discover the patterns of behaviors that led to their success. This speech, based on the book 21 Secrets of Million Dollar Sellers: America's Top Producers Reveal the Keys to Sales Success, offers 21 specific sales activities shared between industries, which can be repeated by anyone. This multimedia, interactive program introduces this research to create a simple and dynamic sales process you can apply today!

The death of effective planning lies in our desire for “more.” We believe that more allows us to gain ground, to move forward, but the reality is that more leads to complexity. The more complex a model, the less likely that model is to become a reality. In this dynamic presentation, Steve Harvill shares why we move towards complexity, the key difference between simple and easy, the advantage of teams, the space between cause and effect, being an architect of time, and a discipline of thinking that brings the model together.

Why do we continually settle for ordinary when the step to extraordinary is so simple? Why do we ignore the power of a simple story? Why do we miss the return we are given when we focus on the client experience? Why don’t we create opportunity instead of waiting for it, and when we see the chance, why don’t we make the opportunity scream WOW? These questions form the core of the Dazzling Blue movement, a journey to your ability to become extraordinary, to develop a sustained performance that will separate and differentiate you in a world continually marginalized by common experience. Dazzling Blue, a strategic platform from Steve Harvill, will immerse you in a multimedia experience specifically designed to provide you with a simple three-part plan to start you on the journey to extraordinary.

After years of streamlining and hunkering down to weather the crises, what companies now most need to do is pull their people together. Collaboration and innovation are vital skills in global business—but where do they come from? How do leading companies get the alignment, trust and energy they need to get their people to work well together? What are the impediments to, and habits of, creative collaborative teams?

Working across cultures, time zones and technology is logistically difficult but it’s usually the human factors that make it hard for companies to achieve their aims. Everyone talks about collaboration but few know how to do it, what it feels like or what organizational structures enable—or disable—it. What they all know is that if they can’t figure out how to do it will, others will.

In this presentation you will learn:

  • The meaning and characteristics of collective intelligence
  • The business case for collaboration
  • Incentives that make people pull together
  • What gets in the way of teamwork
  • How great leadership teams function
