There are few situations in the business world that Troy Hazard has not experienced and survived. The entrepreneurial genius, who has founded and nurtured twelve businesses over two decades, has turned around businesses that were making enormous losses and has consulted to countless successful companies including Goodyear, Baskin Robbins, Subway, Fisher & Paykel and many more.
Hazard’s business talents earned him international respect, so much so that he was elected by the world’s foremost business leaders for the role of Global President of the Entrepreneurs’ Organization, a role he says was one of his greatest challenges.
“That was by far the toughest leadership position I have held,” he admits, speaking of an organization that represents a global community of successful business owners.
Hazard’s experiences in the business world have allowed him valuable insight into the workings of organizations and the minds of customers. His particular area of specialty is in the franchise space where he has been a leading consultant for nearly 25 years.
It’s this same experience that gives Hazard such great value as a CSP – Certified Speaking Professional, and as the host on the hugely successful national network business television shows in Australia ‘Inside Franchising’ and ‘Don’t Come Monday’.
He is also the host of his own Cable TV talk show in the USA – ‘Gettin’ Down 2 Business’, on the BizTV Cable Network and TiVo broadcasting into 30 million homes each week, and a regular Co-Host on ‘The Big Biz Show’ on the CBS Talk Radio Network and the Business Talk Radio Network broadcasting to 1.5 Million Radio Listeners, and simulcast the BizTV Cable Network.

Purpose, Passion, People and Profits
The Power of Creating Profit, on Purpose
What if you knew the 'one thing' that would show your business the path out of the GLOOM and into the BOOM? Serial entrepreneur Troy Hazard believes the answer is not found within something you seek, but more in something you already have and may have forgotten. Troy is an entrepreneurial veteran who had bought, sold and grown more companies before his 40th birthday than some business people would even consider in a lifetime. As a result he has seen his fair share of cycles in the economy. In the first recession of the late 80's he lost $250,000. In the second one in the mid 90's the amount was closer to $1 million. In the tech wreck and the more recent correction of 2008, it was an entirely different outcome! It was through these tough lessons early in his business career, that he developed a powerful personal strategy that helped him unlock greater purpose. This strategy reignited his passion and in turn that of the people he led, so he could go on to grow and develop a series of successful profitable companies over the course of a decade. In this keynote Troy provides simple steps to the clarity of vision you need to give your business a more purposeful view of the future. He will show you how to:
- Unlock the true value of the clarity of vision.
- Find your personal purpose.
- Use passion to drive power.
- Inspire the people you lead to have the same vision, purpose and passion.
- Master the strategy of profits to the POWER of 3
Revenue Through Relationships
Developing Significant Customer Connection
In a world of connectivity, why is it that we sometimes fail to really 'connect' as humans? In our personal lives we all enjoy relationships that revolve around authenticity, honesty, openness, vulnerability, and respect. Yet in business we often treat the development of key relationships as a mechanical, somewhat technical event, as opposed to an emotional bond with another person. Why? Given the new normal for business is faster, better, yesterday, it's no surprise that the way we interact with our customer base has changed. However, the core reason for them wanting to connect has not. Troy will demonstrate how to develop effective and efficient strategies to embrace the true emotion of a relationship in business and harness that with the technology we have come to rely on so heavily. He will offer real world examples of what he has done in his businesses to not only stay relevant to his customer base, but also remain significant, in turn facilitating extraordinary growth. Troy's presentation delivers answers for how to:
- Identify the 5 key reasons why people do business with you.
- Use the new voice of word of mouth.
- Talk TO your customers not AT them.
- Maintain relationships that are emotive, distinctive, and collaborative.
- Develop the 6 relationships that drive revenue in your business.
- Share and create a culture of conscious collaboration.
