Speaking Topics
  • Repeatable Successful Acts

    Most organizations know the metrics used to judge the success of their sales force. What they don’t know is the missing piece—it’s what their sales force DOES. What actions or behaviors generated sales and which, if any, can be repeated to generate the same success? Steve Harvill and his company, Creative Ventures, conducted a study of 7 different industries and their top producers to discover the patterns of behaviors that led to their success. This speech offers 28 specific sales activities shared between industries, which can be repeated by anyone. This multimedia, interactive program introduces two years of research, creating a simple and dynamic sales process you can apply today!

  • The DNA of Success

    What makes good leaders great? In one of the latest strategic platforms from Steve Harvill, he shares the results of an independent study of the leadership teams of Fortune 500 companies. The study resulted in a simple discovery: 11 shared behaviors that are directly connected to both individual and corporate success. These 11 behaviors cross industry barriers, providing a menu-driven model that creates a mechanism for success. Delivered in a multimedia and interactive format, this cutting-edge data will challenge your perception of impactful leadership and create a foundation for the development of your leadership model.

  • The Idea Factory

    Companies don’t suffer from a lack of ideas; they suffer from a lack of knowing what to do to make an idea impactful. They lack any sort of process around the development, implementation and measurement of ideas. In fact, according to the Maurer Group, 78% of companies have no idea system at all, which leads to an average failure rate of 70% for new ideas launched. 70%! Ideas vanish from a lack of understanding, a lack of agreement, and an utter lack of engagement. For 30 years, Steve Harvill and his company have been in the business of creating and developing ideas. We find our success in The Idea Factory, a simple, efficient and repeatable process for providing a systemic approach to the development of ideas. The Idea Factory provides a forum for ideas to gain form, to discover function, and through a committed process, find value.

  • The Once Upon a Time Project

    There are stories being crafted. There are stories being told. There are stories of authenticity and richness that engage our minds and imaginations. There are stories tired in their design and missing the mark of impact. What’s your story and how well do you tell it? The Once Upon a Time Project is a strategic platform based on two elements: crafting, the art of writing a true and meaningful story; and telling, the skill of telling your story and weaving its content towards impact. Your stories are already there, most of the time in plain sight. You need to capture them, to help us know and understand what you do, what value you bring, and how you’re different. This is story-based marketing.

  • Elegant Simplicity

    The death of effective planning lies in our desire for “more.” We believe that more allows us to gain ground, to move forward, but the reality is that more leads to complexity. The more complex a model, the less likely that model is to become a reality. In this dynamic presentation, Steve Harvill shares why we move towards complexity, the key difference between simple and easy, the advantage of teams, the space between cause and effect, being an architect of time, and a discipline of thinking that brings the model together.
