    In this presentation Troy will step through a process to identify if you are driving your business into the future, or into the ground.

  • Stronger Together
    Unlocking the power of unity in your business
    Doing more with less, pushing harder for the same results, and asking your people to conquer an increasingly competitive market requires a cohesive team, working in a collaborative, constructive, and unified culture. Sounds easy…right?
    All too often business leaders talk about unity in the business, but fail to identify what will actually unify those they lead. The key is to match personal and business Visions, Values and Victories.
    In this presentation Troy will reveal the 5 steps to creating a true culture of unity in your business. He will draw from 25 years as a business leader in the 11 companies he has owned, and offer real world examples of how to develop a Stronger Together mentality and strategy in your business. He will also step you through the Stronger Together strategies he has developed for some of the world’s greatest brands; how they worked, why they worked and for whom they worked.

  • Purpose Passion People Profits
    Guiding your business with clarity and vision to a more profitable future!
    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.

  • Speed Leading
    How to become a better leader, faster!
    Leading people is tough, particularly in changing times. Everyone has an opinion on how to lead, and what makes a good leader. So, what is the best way to become a better leader, faster? Ask a leader of leaders. Troy Hazard is a business veteran with eleven companies he has founded, built and sold over 20 years.
    His entrepreneurial and leadership excellence was recognized when he was elected Global President of the Entrepreneurs’ Organization. This group is comprised of some of the world’s greatest business leaders, employing 1.7 million people around the world with combined revenue of $160 billion. In short, Troy has proven himself in one of the toughest leadership roles on the planet.
    In this session, Troy will explain why the speed of your personal evolution as a leader has a direct impact on the evolution of your business and those you lead.

  • 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.

  • Embrace Evolution
    Be first to change or first or DIE!
    It’s a fact – change is constant, change is inevitable, change is good… Unless, of course, it’s forced.
    As business leaders we’d all love to tell our team to Change or DIE! For many years this was the catch cry in Troy Hazard’s businesses – until he learned that the more effective way to facilitate change was to ‘embrace evolution’.
    Through his 20 years as a business consultant and business owner of eleven companies Troy has turned around countless businesses. His philosophy is that you make change a consciousness in the business, not just an action. And to do that, you need to embrace evolution.
    In this presentation Troy will walk you down the path to conscious change. He will identify the killers of change and how to avoid them, the drivers of change and how to harness them, the facilitators of change and how to inspire them, and how to put this all into your master P.L.A.N.

Troy spoke at our annual convention and I can honestly say he rated a ‘20’ on a scale of 1-10! I particularly appreciated his way of relating directly to our franchisees and their real-world business issues. His approachable, low-key style, deep understanding of franchising and entrepreneurship and his dynamic delivery earned him (and us) glowing accolades from our franchisees. We loved getting comments from them like, ‘He Really had great insight and made me re-think my effort I put into the business’ and ‘Troy absolutely nailed how we need to open our eyes and minds to what is happening around us’. I’m thrilled with the effect Troy had on our team and look forward to bringing him back next year!

Troy Hazard delivered fantastic opening and closing keynotes at our annual Restoration Retreat and we especially appreciated the wonderful way he connected authentically with our franchisees. His heartfelt stories of succeeding – and failing-- in many different businesses created the opportunity for our team to really open up. Several of our franchisees shared that they actually had epiphanies during Troy’s sessions. I’d highly recommend Troy to any franchise system interested in creating an opportunity for their franchisees to really dig in and take a look at their businesses and themselves.

WOW what fantastic results! The positive energy that Troy created in the room was remarkable and he literally set the tone for a great event. “This was the best conference we have ever had!” was the feedback we received repeatedly from our franchisees. The workshop sessions following Troy’s opening keynote effortlessly shifted the feeling in the room from ‘us vs. them’ and opened us all up to start thinking as a unified, collective force. AMAZING! The residual buzz from the event has also been fantastic. Troy’s passion for franchising and his solid tools for business success will ignite positive energy in ANY brand.

Troy Hazard recently delivered a fantastic opening keynote for our annual conference. I especially appreciated Troy’s message on how it is not ‘different for me in my area’. The feedback coming in from our Master Franchisees is overwhelmingly positive and I would highly recommend Troy to any franchisor looking to really ignite and inspire their franchisees to take personal responsibility and create a comprehensive vision for their own success in life and in business.

We recently had Troy Hazard engage our franchisees in a powerful session and what an impact he had – for all of us! Troy’s extensive franchise experience quickly established solid credibility with our franchisees and opened them up to hear his provocative message loud and clear. He challenged them to examine themselves, their goals and their future and WOW – did they resonate and respond to his session. Fantastic feedback from franchisees continues to roll in and we are so pleased with Troy’s impact and message, we are bringing him back again in October to work with the entire system and creating regular webinars to keep the momentum going between now and then. Troy’s session was an absolute homerun in every way!

Troy Hazard recently spoke to the Handee Mart 7-Eleven franchisees and the feedback was outstanding. He kept the entire audience thoroughly engaged and his passion for helping our franchisees create a great guest experience for every 7-Eleven customer was literally contagious. The fact that he really understands our business, our market and our customers allowed his message to land with our franchisees. For me Troy was a perfect ’10’. We hope to have Troy share his unique wisdom with more of the 7-Eleven team in the coming months!

We recently hired Troy Hazard as a keynote speaker for one of our leading franchise clients. Troy was genuine and not at all canned in his presentation and we were particularly impressed with how well he related to the group. You know the message has landed when franchisees continue to quote the speaker throughout the conference and integrate key take-aways in their own presentations. As professional meeting planners, we also really appreciate how conscientious and easy Troy was to work with.

Troy Hazard recently spoke at our annual franchise convention and he was definitely a “10”! Feedback from our franchisees included ‘Fantastic!’, ‘Refreshing!’, and ‘Something Different!’ We all very much appreciated how Troy was able to encapsulate the importance of having a clear personal vision as a foundation for professional success. With his 20 years of experience in all aspects of franchising he really helped bring to light the simple fact that if you are out of control in your personal life, you can’t expect your professional life to be in order.

Troy was GREAT! His messages on relationships, vision, accountability and communication were all spot on. We especially appreciated the unique way he quickly built an open connection with our franchisees that solicited the challenges they face in their business and beneficial solutions. We all got a wealth of knowledge out of Troy’s session and a better understanding of what both the franchisees and we at the home office need to focus on to support our entire system. The new foundational understanding built by Troy is our 2012 cornerstone that will allow positive cohesive change! The only thing I would have changed is to have had Troy scheduled for more time! Thanks Troy!

We selected Troy Hazard to present to both our Business Consultants and our Broker Owners at this year’s annual convention. Troy expertly crafted a solid platform of tactical, practical business tools that really resonated. What made Troy’s session exceptional was that he then created an opening for everyone in the room to really dig into the fundamental driving inspiration behind ‘why’ we do what we do both as franchisors and as Broker Owners. One evaluation said, “Thanks you so much. It was powerful for me to know that you care enough about our success to bring someone like this in to work with us.”

Troy’s practical business message for our team was a great investment. The icing on the cake was the very real and authentic delivery of that message. I think that’s why he had such a powerful impact on our group.

I particularly appreciated his great sense of humor and the way he carefully and authentically connected with our franchisees. His message was rich with simple, easy-to-follow, common sense strategies which he had customized for our system and our convention objectives. Our franchisees wouldn’t let me down the hall without offering kudos for bringing Troy in to speak to them. Troy is a perfect ‘10’ for any franchise system looking for a speaker.

In the 16 years we have been booking speakers, Troy Hazard is by far and away the very best convention speaker we have ever had. His session went way beyond my expectations and our franchisees LOVED him! They continued to talk about Troy’s message for the rest of the event and we are still hearing about how great they thought he was. The thing that impressed me the most was Troy’s extensive preparation. The effort that he put forth to really understand our culture and the objectives we set for the conference and the coming year was fantastic.

Without a doubt, Troy was the highlight of our franchise conference as voted on by our franchisees. His presentation was not only very useful, but entertaining as well. Almost two years later, we still refer to keys points he made during his workshop in our one-on-one and group calls.
CEO

Troy Hazard stands out as one of the few speakers in this world who truly understands franchising. His depth of experience in the category is without question. The real life accounts he has gathered from the many brands for which he has worked, and his life as a franchisee and franchisor, make him an incredible asset in any conference situation. He has worked with our many franchise companies as a keynote speaker, workshop facilitator and emcee, and on every occasion he has sent our team away with incredible take-home value. On top of Troy’s experiences in business his unique life story is one of which audiences of all walks of life will relate to. From his struggling start to his glorious come back, Troy Hazard has lived the life of a successful serial entrepreneur and business owner. Captivating the audience with the ups and down of his life there was no doubt in my mind that all the attendees was constantly on the EDGE of their seats. We look forward to having him back again for another amazing inspiring and productive event.

He tailored the content of his presentation to our audience so they felt strongly that he understood the particular stresses and opportunities. I would highly recommend Troy to anyone looking for a fun, engaging and knowledgeable independent business expert."

“Troy has gained the attention of our entire group.  He has a method of presentation and presence that demands they sit up and take notice. Most importantly Troy has got our operators to implement his proposals.  Coming up with these ideas is one thing, seeing them through to completion and execution is another.  Troy has very hands on approach and is not afraid of backing himself when put to the test.”

I have had many comments from those who attended our national conference, complimenting Troy on his presentation content, its relevance to today’s market and his entertaining delivery.  As a result we now have outlets busily working away in their own backyards, adopting some of the Guerrilla marketing strategies from his workshop activity and driving their business.  We look forward to his presentation at next years conference.
