  • Leading In Uncertain Times – What’s Your Story?

    Be warned….in uncertain times, if leaders don’t have a story that gives focus to their resources and resourcefulness, someone else will write their future – and it won’t turn out well! In this compelling, transformative keynote, “StoryMan” Peter Guber empowers, enlightens and exhorts leaders to tap into their innate story telling ability and to use this skill to persuade others to act toward common goals. Often misperceived as lacking power, many leaders avoid story, employing instead soulless information, data, and PowerPoint bullets to motivate their listeners. Yet, when the chips are down, as they are in tumultuous times, it’s the emotional power that counts. During this no holds-barred experience, Guber shares his methodology of how to use story to overcome the three navigation stakes challenging all leaders during trying times:

  • There's No Business Without Show Business

    There's no business without show business! If you can't show "it," articulate what "it" is, and incite and excite others to viral market "it" for you—no matter what you call "it" in your business—you've got a flop. As someone who has had his share of profitable and critically acclaimed successes with such hit films as Batman, Rain Man, Flashdance, and The Kids Are All Right, in addition to owning and managing record-breaking professional Minor League Baseball teams and stadiums, Peter Guber—the current owner of the Los Angeles Dodgers—is in the hit-generating business. But his journey hasn't been without its misses. In a career that's spanned four decades, Guber has also suffered highly public flops like a professional hockey team where the audience didn't give a puck, and movies like Bonfire of the Vanities, where people tried to walk out—even when it was shown on planes! Yet, he didn't surrender; he more than endured; he triumphed. With this often hilarious, highly entertaining, and always on-point speech, audiences will be energized and motivated by someone with firsthand experience who knows "it ain't over till it's over." Everyone has the power to survive misfortune in their industry and generate sweet success.

  • Divining & Designing the Culture of Innovation

    How do the most successful companies and leaders generate ideas, unleash the creative talent of their people, move innovative thinking throughout their organization while overcoming resistance, and have an accelerated time to market that leaves competitors in the dust? Peter Guber draws from his four decades of successes in the creative industry of entertainment, innovating on all sides of the food chain—from working with creatives to corporate to partners, vendors, and audiences—in addition to leading or investing in cutting-edge early stage companies like Demand Media (where he's on the Board of Directors) and Geek Chic Daily. He also draws from his experience as reinventing sports teams and stadiums in professional basketball, baseball, and hockey to share first-person stories based on his demonstrated successes to provide the tools to change your Monday. Be motivated by a masterful storyteller who will ignite and incite the culture of innovation and the tools to execute on it in your organization.

  • Storytelling for Business Success

    Great storytelling is more than just entertainment; it is a highly powerful and vastly underutilized professional business tool. It is indeed the secret sauce that can propel your success—whether you are an executive, entrepreneur, sales manager, marketing and communications expert, artist, consultant, inventor, human resources professional, or assistant. Unfortunately, by the time most people have entered business, stories as professional tools have been dismissed as too soft or suspect and have been replaced by soulless bullets and forgettable data. Yet, only stories and their telling can create the emotional experiences that make the important information embedded in memory, resonant, and actionable. In this entertaining, enlightening, and informative keynote, Guber shares his methodology of how to employ the power of the oral story.

  • Leading & Succeeding In Uncertain Times

    The rapid changes reshaping business today requires leaders who stay ahead of the curve, embrace uncertainty, overcome fear (which Peter Guber defines as "False Evidence Appearing Real"), and take informed risks by "flying in the red zone" where failure lurks but a greater opportunity horizon lies. Guber credits much of his tremendous business success in volatile times to heeding these navigational stakes in not one, but five different industries—from blockbuster, critically acclaimed, and award-winning movies like Rain Man, Batman, Gorillas in the Mist, and The Kids Are All Right, to owning among the most successful professional minor league baseball teams and stadiums (and now, as owner and co-executive chairman of the NBA franchise, The Golden State Warriors, is in the process of transforming this team under extremely uncertain conditions) to finding, investing in, and growing cutting-edge new media companies (such as Geek Chic Daily, Mandalay Digital Group, and Demand Media) to locating, developing, and selling highly profitable real estate ventures to holding a professorship at UCLA for more than four decades where his highly popular courses consistently sell out. Be engaged by a creative entrepreneur with the demonstrated success to speak from first-person experience on surviving and thriving in uncertain times.
