I have a few carefully selected TED talks and presentations posted here that are some of my favorites. I would love to hear your comments after you watch them and specifically, I invite you to share what difference it will make with you and/or your business.

At the bottom of the page I have a link to my reading list of books.

Discovering the “Why” of your business… is it important?

See this video and explore if Simon’s approach would make a difference for you and how you lead your business. Simon was in Toronto the week of April 16th, 2012 and did another great talk.

Simon Sinek: How great leaders inspire action

Business Model for Start-Up (And Its Not Just for Start Ups)

The second most important factor for business success is for the entrepreneur to review the business model on a regular basis. This presentation refers to start up’s but it makes an important point… that is useful for any business owner. Your Business Model is the key to profit, and you probably don’t have the right one yet! (e.g. Facebook had the wrong one too until 2012 so you are in good company). Please cut and paste to get to my google drive.
