Labeled the "turn-around champ" by Fortune magazine, Barry Gibbons carried a failing Burger King Corporation from threatened obscurity to triumphant global prominence. Tell It Like It Is: With scalpel-sharp wit, Barry Gibbons cuts to the bottom-line difference between "acceptable" and "exceptional" creating a blueprint for fresh-start success. He conveys to audiences what makes the difference between organizations who succeed versus those muddling in mediocrity.

Take A Chance: Combining practical experience with maverick business sense, Gibbons challenges the status quo, breaks the rules and makes the daunting complexities of business easy to understand. He also exposes the comic absurdities of modern business while emphasizing the glorious opportunities that reward courageous decisions.

Author and Business Humorist: Gibbons is the author of several books, including Dream Merchants and HowBoys; This Indecision is Final; If You Want to Make God Really Laugh, Show Him Your Business Plan; and his latest, Warning! May Contain Nuts! And in 2005 Gibbons will publish a book about public speaking titled, As God Once Said (and I Think, Quite Rightly...). He has written five international business books, published in several languages.

The Results: With humor and intelligence, Gibbons' wisdom provides a practical road map for successful organizations and individuals willing to commit to the journey.

Leadership - A Place Beyond Management
In big or small companies, business units or teams, the advent of flatter structures, empowerment, outsourcing, tele-commuting and distributing (computer) systems mean that EVERYBODY in business faces the challenge of leading and not just managing.

New Branding
Branding is still about market distinction, but has changed irrevocably in the 90s. Less focus on product specifications and price, more on securing a sustainable RELATIONSHIP with the customer, thinking "small", and energizing EVERYBODY in the organization in pursuit of the goal are all key.
