The Mirror Test: How To Breathe New Life Into Your Business
Hailed a "Celebrity CMO" by Forbes magazine, and famous for his outspoken appearances on numerous television networks, Jeffrey Hayzlett is widely recognized as one of the most influential marketers of our time. In this presentation, he discusses The Mirror Test, also the title of his book, and a new way to look at your company’s marketing and sales strategy. Hayzlett shares some of the newest ways to win with social media, redefine your elevator pitch and help you to transform your business. Will your business be positioned to fog the mirror and grow in today’s new economy?

Hayzlett says marketing has never been more complicated, yet had greater impact, than today. It leaves many marketers puzzled how best to position, grow and move their brands. As a former Fortune 100 CMO, Hayzlett speaks to audiences on how to use the changes in marketing to reach new audiences, navigate barriers and increase revenues.

Whether it’s selling to the c-suite or selling to your neighbor down the street, everyone has a different buying personality. Does your audience know how to recognize different buying personalities and how to adapt their pitch? Hayzlett teaches sales teams how to create a winning elevator pitch, and how to pick out the different personalities and close the deal every time.

In Hayzlett’s opinion, the job of leaders is to motivate the company by getting everyone away from the center of the table to the edge of the table. A leaders job is to cause tension to drive results. Hayzlett takes audiences through a radical transformation, teaching the values of honest transparency, motivation, and leadership skills he’s honed over 26 years in business. A company is only as fast as it’s slowest common denominator, and Hayzlett seeks to find these issue and problems slow businesses down like a heat seeking missile.

As a former Fortune 100 c-suite executive, Hayzlett has the experience and understands the complexity of top-down management. From both his work as a c-suite executive and his television show C-Suite with Jeffrey Hayzlett, where Hayzlett enters the boardrooms of the top companies changing the business landscape today, Hayzlett shares his personal knowledge and the stories from executives featured on the show to audience around the world.

    Running the Gauntlet: Essential Business Lessons to Lead, Drive Change, and Grow Profits

    Change your ATTITUDE. Change your BUSINESS. Change your FUTURE.

    What’s stopping you from making the changes your business needs to thrive? The most dangerous move in business is the failure to make a move at all. The history of business is filled with companies that are no more because their leaders refused to enact change when the writing was on the wall. Fear. Apathy. Lack of personal responsibility. These simple human flaws can turn a good company into a dead company.

    The writing on the wall has never been clearer than it is now—and marketing phenomenon Jeffrey Hayzlett is on a mission to make you see it, understand it, and heed it. Today’s business environment is so competitive and volatile that you can’t afford to be satisfied with business as usual. You must make changes now to compete in the future.

    Building on the principles and concepts in his first book The Mirror Test, Hayzlett takes you on a step-by-step journey to:

  • Develop a “takeover mentality” for your business
  • Summon the vision and courage necessary for driving change
  • Sharpen the mental and emotional toughness to make strategic, lasting change
  • Execute the right changes and deal with any disruptions they might cause
  • Sustain and manage your company’s new-found momentum

    Change is already happening all around you—to products, to organizations, to entire industries. Eventually, it will happen to your company, whether from outside forces or your own initiative.

    You’ve always had the ability to institute positive change in your company. Now, with Running the Gauntlet, you have the inspiration and knowledge to make it happen and take control of it—instead of letting it control you.
