Presentations

Dancing with Disruption
With great opportunity comes great uncertainty. Whatever sector you’re in, the possibilities are hugely exciting. The new technologies are creating massive breakthroughs. If you love massive change, you’re going to love the future. If you don’t, you’re going to love irrelevance even less. Disruption cannot be avoided. There is no safe space. Either you’re the disruptor or the disruptee. You’re either doing the disrupting or you’re being disrupted. In this moonshot presentation, Mike will coach you on how to adapt, navigate and pivot in a way that inspires, delights and thrills others. He will reveal the seven secrets to thriving on massive change so the most desirable people want to work only with you: Mike illustrates each secret through people and companies that have changed the rules of the game, created new markets and radically redefined the future.

How to Leverage The Ten Winning Trends of 2018 
The future belongs to those who can anticipate it. Success is where opportunity meets preparation and winning comes from being more prepared than anyone else to succeed. That’s Mike Lipkin’s mission in this program: to help you prepare for 2018 so you can win whatever game you’re playing. Mike has identified these trends by interviewing hundreds of influential people and researching multiple sources through his work with Environics Research and the media. Mike will walk your people through the trends and coach them on how to leverage the trends in their favour.

Be Always New, especially when you’re not new
Once upon a time, everyone is new. Then the seasons pass. That’s when the crisis hits. Markets change. Technology evolves. Customers demand more. A new breed of players, with a brand new value proposition, suddenly appears. A new game begins that is defined by a very different set of rules. The champions adapt and rejuvenate themselves real time. They are the ones who inspire others to win. In this program, Mike Lipkin showcases some of the world’s most successful examples of brand and personal rejuvenation to bring you the 5 Distinctions To Be Always New. Delegates will learn the 5 Distinctions to Be Always-New

Make the Promise: How to Inspire Customers to Buy Whatever You Propose
Success is not about under-promising and over-delivering. It’s about boldly promising what you have to stretch to deliver. Luck favours the brave. Ambition attracts results. Modest promises don’t inspire anyone to place big bets with you. In this extraordinary program, Mike shares his 6-step formula for making the promise that other people want to purchase. Whoever you are and whatever you offer, he will help you win with your customers through how you make your promises. Mike will work with you and your team to motivate customers to choose your offering ahead of the competition. And you’ll have fun doing it.

The Checklist of Champions
Champions are people who win. They prove they are best of breed. They do the right things right and they don’t get the wrong things wrong. They are inspired by their cause and they are disciplined to defend it. Mike Lipkin calls himself “The Championator.” He studies Champions for a living. He lives with them. He works with them. He coaches them. His mission is to literally turn people into Champions. He helps them perform at their best to become the best. You may be one move away from being a Champion, or you may have miles to go. Mike Lipkin will give you the Checklist of Champions that will help you get there faster.

Summary Profile

Mike Lipkin’s mission is to help you and your team achieve preeminence – that’s where you become the benchmark by which all others are judged. It’s where you play at such a level that you set the standard for your industry or category. It is achievable. In fact, it’s necessary. If we’re not defining the standard, then someone else is and they are going to enjoy the rewards of being the best. And by the way, either we become the best, or we become irrelevant. There is no middle ground. These are extreme times. We’re all being subjected to extraordinary stress and scrutiny by everyone around us – our colleagues, our clients, and our communities. Good enough isn’t good enough any more. Even great may not be good enough. The Pursuit of Preeminence is the only path that will deliver the results that you desire and deserve.
