Leaders in uncertain times cannot wait for a return to “normalcy.” This is not the moment to be risk-averse. You must be an agent of change or you’ll soon find yourself and your organization in a permanent state of “dormancy.” Achieving success in today’s high-consequence, highly uncertain, and rapidly-changing world requires that leaders be adept in living and acting out of their comfort zones. Organizations must keep a keen eye for incremental change, but leadership must look for exponential opportunities. Through Peter Guber’s four decades of business experience across diverse industries, he’s organized certain F.A.C.T.S. that are crucial to leading and succeeding in uncertain times. Be motivated by a renowned leader who knows how to gain and sustain competitive advantage during times of uncertainty.
Stories are a misunderstood, misused, and underutilized asset in business. The ability to tell a purposeful story well can be a highly powerful professional tool that can propel success for anyone in any industry. In this entertaining, enlightening and informative presentation, “StoryMan” Peter Guber shares his methodology of how to employ purposeful storytelling to sell more products/services, rebrand your product or company, lead more persuasively, manage more effectively, inspire greater creativity, and foster deeper collaboration.
The biggest risk in the business world today IS TAKING NO RISKS. The rapid changes reshaping business require leaders who stay ahead of the curve, embrace uncertainty, overcome fear, and take informed risks by “flying in the red zone” where failure lurks, but a greater opportunity horizon lies. Peter Guber credits much of his tremendous business success to heeding these navigational stakes. Be engaged by a creative entrepreneur who speaks from first person experience about creating and thriving in a culture of innovation that will take any organization to the next level.

Your brand becomes a bond, your communication becomes a connection. In this heartfelt and informative keynote, Guber shifts the focus off of the business transaction and shines the light on the powerful business relationship. He shares his experience and expertise in how to reach the heart of your customers and clients to build relationships that will endure for a lifetime.
