Leadership -- Letters to My Younger Self

After nearly seven years and being in the role of chief operating officer of a company that grew from $2 Million to $106 Million, Cameron wanted the lessons he’d learned to sink in. So, over the period of the three months immediately following leaving the company, he wrote for twenty minutes every day in a journal to capture what I’d learned. He wrote lists. He mind-mapped. He just wrote. He learned about himself during that period of reflecting. Leadership lessons he wished he’d known 20 years earlier but no one had taught him.

  • During this session Cameron will share fifty-eight hardcore leadership lessons that he'd actually learned in 20 years of building 4 fast growth companies.
  • This is the perfect keynote or workshop session for all conferences where managers or leaders are in attendance.
  • An easy, fast paced, fun session, that will leave everyone in the room completely engaged, and filled to the brim with new lessons to become better leaders themselves.

CEO/President, Headsets.com

“Cameron is a visionary business thinker who knows how to communicate real implementable ideas that work.”

YPO Jamaica/Stewarts Automotive Group

"Cameron Herold presented to YPO Jamaica in 2011 and based on popular demand, again in 2013. Cameron is engaging, forward thinking and challenges us to look at the obvious in a non-traditional way. 9.4 out of 10”

Senior Vice President of Member Engagement at Vistage International

"As a top-rated speaker for the 2014 Vistage Executive Summit series, Cameron consistently knocks it out of the park with fast-paced, content-rich presentations peppered with practical advice for any CEO or other business leader. He gets rave review with every outing, typically scoring in the high 4s on a scale of 1 to 5.”

Talent Scout at Mastermind Talks, and Learning Chair for EO Toronto

"Good speakers make you feel differently, great speakers make you think differently, but exceptional speakers make you act differently. Not only has Cameron's work resonated with our audience at our past events, but his tips, tools, and tactics are actionable. After working with him, it's not uncommon for us to receive an email from select attendees saying that his one talk saved their business (or life). HIGHLY recommended”
