Finding the right speaker for an event who will meet your expectations can be challenging.  Often times speakers bring great energy and motivation but lack tangible takeaways.  Other speakers are packed with tactical tips but do not inspire the audience to take action. We find most event planners are looking for a speaker who will deliver a strong combination of strategic insights, motivation and meaningful takeaways the attendees can implement immediately.  Brad Stevens is committed to delivering this kind of experience for your audience with fresh new concepts and a fun, high energy delivery that will leave your audience moved and motivated to take action. 

Below you will find samples of his past presentations and further information on his background and regular speaking topics.

Featured Topic: Leading with Leverage

How progressive entrepreneurs and CEO’s are taking their company into the next decade by leveraging the rapidly growing virtual “on demand” workforce and unique tools to outsmart the competition and grow faster, cheaper...smarter.

In speaking on this topic to thousands of entreprepreneurs, executives and CEO’s we consistently find less than 10% are aware this world exists. It COMPLETELY changes their mindset on how they think about execution in their company”

“Sometimes you just learn things in business and life that completely change the game. This has been one of those days for me. Thank you.” – EO Member, Russell T. , IT Services

Companies are getting over $10,000 of work done for less than $500 in half the time.

[Not to mention the rest of the world], “in the US alone by 2020, 50% of the U.S. workforce will be freelancers. This on-demand work, instant gig economy is moving more and more into independent professionals that are using mobile and technology to create ecosystems of work they enjoy.”  - Brian Rashid, Forbes Magazine

Brad enjoys personally connecting with attendees to answer questions before and after the event

Brad is also the author of The Top 200 Tools to Fuel Your Business Growth has also been published twice in EO Octane Magazine and the EO Inc Magazine Blog.

Topic Summary: Leading with Leverage

It is a prime time to be in business but the pace is moving faster than ever across all dimensions including operations, finance, HR, sales, and certainly the dynamic world of marketing. The complexity has also increased dramatically. However, startups to $100 million Fortune 500 companies have no choice. They must engage this new reality and find a way to win. But how do they keep up and compete? 

The only answer is LEVERAGE. Companies must leverage time, money and resources with very innovative techniques. This includes embracing the rapidly growing global on-demand work-force with no overhead and no marketing costs who are incredibly talented and do amazing work low cost and fast. Brad helps break down all the perceptions business leaders have about outsourcing, freelancers and contractors to unveil an incredibly powerful virtual team architecture that will rapidly increase the speed of execution or a fraction of the cost.

Brad explains how this is not a short-term trend. There is a seismic shift happening in how work will get done. And when you combine the power of global freelancers along with creative thinking and unique technology tools you can move mountains in a business faster and cheaper than ever. And with Brad finding that less than 10% of CEO’s, startups and entrepreneurs are aware of these techniques, there is an opportunity to outsmart the competition with an unfair advantage by getting work done faster, cheaper and smarter.
