  4. 4. +genius GAMECHANGERS … NEW book launched in 2014 Peter’s exciting new book “Gamechangers” about next generation brands and business strategies including 120 innovative case studies will be launched in 2014. We are looking to give exclusive rights to one event/organiser to be the launch partner in each country. This can include events, workshops, discounted books, and a social media co-created ranking of the best local gamechangers in each market. “Gamechangers” are the next generation of brands and businesses, shaking up markets by playing a different game. They think bigger and different, to seize the opportunities of change and make sense of ambiguity, to redefine markets in their own vision, and engage audiences in more relevant and inspiring ways. They win through ambition and innovation rather than legacy and scale, out-thinking the competition, focusing on the growth markets, and embracing technology in more human ways. With purpose and passion, they design and create, connect and collaborate, enable and enrich. They embrace the power of brands and networks to build markets as movements, business models that are sustainable and profitable, making a positive difference to people’s lives. The book explores the next generation of brands who are rapidly and radically shaking up every market. It learns from over 100 businesses, from every part of the world - Alibaba to Azuri, Zespri to Zidisha; banking to shopping, education to entertainment. From these insights we define how you can win by playing a different game. How to think smarter and act faster, embracing the new tricks of business – from emerging markets to new business models, design thinking and crowdsourcing, social media and sustainability – challenging the rules, redefining expectations. The impact is exponential, in both local and global markets. The challenges are different, but every business, large or small, east or west, can be a winner in this new world, if they learn to play a different game. “Gamechangers” is for business leaders, innovators and marketers, who seek new insights and inspiration to win in a dramatically different world. The book stimulates and stretches, exploring how these new brands dream and disrupt, and concludes with five practical labs with tools to help you apply the best ideas to your business, and become a gamechanger too. The book is complemented by a range of additional insights and regular updates, practical tools and process, inspiring events and consulting support which can be found at: +genius

  6. 6. +genius Case studies … examples of recent events Sabre “Gamechangers of Business Travel”, Venice, October 2013 Each year Sabre brings Europe’s leading travel industry CEOs together for three days. This year they wanted something different. To introduce more stretching ideas, create more collaborative working, and sustain the relationship into an ongoing thought leadership program. Peter’s “Big Talk” process combines new research, keynote, co-creation workshops and delivers new white papers. The event explored why and how the travel industry must “change it’s game”, learning from different markets, engaging agency leaders in a fast, high-energy innovation process, and delivering “Il Manifesto di Venezia”. Time Warner “Innovative Leaders”, Hong Kong, June 2013 In USA and Europe, Time Warner is a leader and innovator, but in Asia Pacific, where markets are growing fastest, they are much smaller. They lack direct access to consumers, or control of media channels. He CEO wants them to be gamechangers, but this requires new attitudes and culture. Peter’s keynote set out the opportunity and challenge of being a gamechanger, and followed with a 90 minute workshop focused how leaders can move from hierarchical boss to his “4D leadership model”, with personal diagnostics, group discussion and action plans for how to start the journey of change. Apotex “Raving Fans”, Key Largo, Florida, April 2013 Canada’s leading generics pharma business was trapped in a downwards price spiral, under pressure from low-cost Asian suppliers and discount retail brands. After reading Ken Blanchard’s historic book about turning your customers into “Raving Fans”, Apotex’s CEO wanted to think differently about how to develop relationships and innovations that create new levels of partnership and mutual growth. Peter worked with the global SVP to create a keynote and workshop experience for all senior managers that would change mindsets and drive practical new action plans. The high energy two-day workshop followed an initial keynote creating a vision for change. Eczacibasi “Gamechangers: Are you ready to change the world?” Istanbul, December 2012 Peter has worked with Turkey’s leading conglomerate for the last 10 years, in businesses ranging from bathrooms to cosmetics, construction to retail, and has coached or consulted with over 250 managers. This year’s management and client innovation forum needed a new twist. Peter worked with the founders, a family of Turkish pharmacists, to create a story of Gamechangers – how they started over 100 years ago, and what they need to do again. The keynote included value-based analysis of the impact of innovation on profitability, exciting new case studies, finishing with the audience dancing to Kiss’s “Crazy crazy nights.” “Apple Magic: Think Different like Steve Jobs”, London Business Forum, February 2013 Much has been written about Steve Jobs, about his leadership style as well as his innovative success. But few have really taken those concepts, both good and bad parts, codified them in a way that can be applied to your own business. Finding a balance between being an impossible maverick and an effective leader, ignoring and inspiring consumers at the same time, rebounding from failure to start again and do better, being a big picture visionary with an obsession for detail, applying the aesthetic world of Zen and other cultures to emerging technologies, being the ultimate showman, and dealing with death. Peter’s one day immersion in the world of Jobs, delivered inspired to think different, and an action plan to get started. GSK North America “The Future of Pharma”, Toronto, July 2012 Healthcare is being transformed by technology and business models. “Pharma 2.0” creates a blueprint for working differently. However leaders needed to engage in this vision, understand how they need to lead and act differently, and the innovations that will shape future success. Over two days, Peter stretched and supported GSK’s top 100 executives, through a process that used diagnostics and new research, exploring their future business opportunities, and also their role and behaviours as business leaders. The outcome was then written up and enhanced by Peter as a “blueprint” and circulated to all participants. +genius
  7. 7. +genius “Godfather v Gamechanger” with Philip Kotler, Cairo, July 2012 The Egyptian event organisers wanted to combine the “old and new” worlds of marketing, learning from both Kotler, the 80 year old sage of marketing, and Peter’s new and often conflicting ideas. Peter worked with the organisers to develop the theme and format for the event, finding ways for both speakers to look good, but also to highlight the differences in approach. Through a series of “contests” on specific themes, both speakers explored what they believed matters most today, and then explored the differences. The 2500 audience then voted for what they were most convinced by. The result was (officially) a tie! “Pilot Fish” for Sampo Bank Leaders Forum, Tallinn, January 2012 The bank wanted to offer its 500 business clients a more strategic experience, offering them new approaches to business, to help them emerge from the economic crisis. Peter worked with the organisers to create a complete theme and format for the one-day event based on “pilot fish” – the small fish who swim with the sharks, supporting and protected by them wherever they go. Like Intel or Goretex. Peter’s keynote, interviews with local innovators, and workshop explored how Estonian businesses could adapt a pilot fish strategy too. The concept and format is now available as an integrated solution for other events. “An Audience with Richard Branson”, London, June 2011 Peter had the task of interviewing the Virgin entrepreneur over three hours with an audience of 3500 business leaders. Whilst taking the audience through the more usual topics, Peter also added devices to create variety and gain new insights. These included a brand quiz (in which Branson did terribly!), quickfire questions (new insights!), audience participation, and a surprise guest appearance by his parents. Richard also added humour by taking phone calls whilst on stage. Peter then wrote up the interview and added background information into an article which was syndicated in business magazines worldwide. Visa “Future Bank” Executive Forums, European Tour, 2010-2012 Peter used his “Big Talk” approach to help Visa create a narrative with the leaders of bank across Europe. Driven by initial research, Peter developed a provocative keynote which was followed by an audience workshop, facilitated by Peter, in which together the event shaped a “manifesto” of ideas. This was written up as a paper, carried forward to the next event (different locations across Europe), where the audience built on the existing ideas. It also included staff and experts. In this way, each event is topical and interactive, whilst Visa builds a co-created narrative across all its stakeholders. Customer Genius Live, Institute of Management, Singapore, July 2010 Each of Peter’s books contains a wealth of concepts, case studies from around the world, processes and toolkits. These can easily be turned into a two day “live” masterclass event. The content is reformatted into practical sessions supported by a workbook, and additional resources provided on a “Genius Stick” for application back at work. Over the two days, participants build up a strategy and action plan relevant to their own business and objectives. Peter has used this for Marketing Genius, Customer Genius and Creative Genius, with workshops ranging from 30 people in the Baltics, to 300 in Singapore. European Marketing Summit, European HR Summit, Istanbul, 2002-2013 Peter has chaired both of these events, on behalf of organisers MCT for the last 10 years. They are the largest events of their kind, both attracting around 2500 delegates. Peter works with the event organiser and advisory committee throughout the year to design the theme, and to find the best speakers, to shape their content and participation into a rich, integrated two-day experience. His innovative formats include creating a “live” TV studio on stage, and hosting the two days like a 48 hour media channel. He also brings in art and music, connecting them with business issues and ideas. He interviews business leaders, connects the ideas of gurus, ensures energy and focus, and puts the audience centre stage. Additionally Peter has delivered hundreds of keynote speeches at conference and open events. Every event is customised in content and format. See more at +genius
