Troy Hazard

Author of: "The Naked Entrepreneur"

There are few situations in the business world that Troy Hazard has not experienced and survived – from massive financial loss to stunning success. The entrepreneurial genius, who has founded and nurtured ten businesses over two decades, has been a few days from bankruptcy, has turned around businesses that were making enormous losses and has consulted to countless successful companies.

 

Troy Hazard's business talents earned him international respect, so much so that he was elected by the worlds foremost business leaders for the role of Global President of the Entrepreneurs' Organisation, 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 organisation that represents a global community of successful business owners. "I was leading leaders who lead leaders who lead people – a large collection of the world's most brilliant business minds, and they all at some stage thought they could do the job better than I could. It was extremely challenging and rewarding, and thrilling at the same time."

Troy Hazard's experiences in the business world have allowed him valuable insight into the workings of organisations and the minds of customers. Most business owners, for instance, believe they have a great relationship with their customers when in fact only twenty per cent really do. Why? Because business owners believe that, when a customer comes in to purchase a product or service, this constitutes a relationship. They assume their customers care about them!

It's this same experience that gives Troy Hazard such great value as a Certified Professional Speaker. "Some of my businesses have failed and that has taught me many important lessons that you don't learn at business school," Troy Hazard says. He drills down success into four key areas: understanding your own personal values, being a visionary leader, solid market positioning, and customer relationships. "The key thing about what I have to share is that I've done it  – I'm speaking from experience, the good and the bad."

Troy Hazard’s Lessons from the Edge provide businesses with potent and refined tools, all of which have been road tested in real-world situations and none of which you will ever learn about in business school.
