1) Personal Branding

Kevin will walk you through the steps he has used to help thousands of people shape their personal brand, break out of the crowd, and solidify their position as highly recognized, respected, and rewarded leaders of their fields. Discover how you can stop spinning in circles and make the leap to the next level of your career by owning your niche, capturing your value, and making a name for yourself.

2) The Future of Marketing and Branding

Kevin will share priceless lessons from his own ups and downs in the digital world; the challenges and opportunities that new technological developments and viewer trends pose to businesses and marketers; and proven strategies you can employ to seize those opportunities. Your team will learn how to cultivate an entrepreneurial mindset so that your organization will always stay on top of changing times.

3) Building a Winning Team and Leading Them to Success

A master of networking, he’s founded two global organizations: the Young Entrepreneur’s Association (now EO – Entrepreneurs Organization) and ERA (Electronic Retailers Association), which he formed in a powerful collaboration with his industry competitor, Greg Renker.

In this dynamic and entertaining presentation, Kevin gives you clear-cut strategies you can use to sharpen your networking skills, build meaningful relationships with peers and colleagues, and draw from those relationships later on when you are looking for collaborators to help you convert your vision into a reality. Whether you are from a small start-up or a corporate giant, Kevin will leave you with the knowledge to form optimal teams and alliances that benefit everyone involved.

Sharing tales from his time as a Shark, Kevin will show you what made Shark Tank’s 165 successful pitches stand out from the 45,000+ submissions that were left on the cutting room floor. A veteran from both sides of the pitching world, Kevin will thoroughly navigate you through the in’s and out’s of researching, creating, and tailoring the perfect pitch through an easy-to-follow step by step program, based on his own three decades of giving and receiving tens of thousands of pitches.

President & CEO, Urban League

"Kevin is not only a brilliant entrepreneur and businessman, but he is also one of the sharpest and brightest business minds I've encountered. His business tips and strategies on how to take your business to the next level were clear, clever and current. Our Audience that consisted of local business owners, entrepreneurs and professionals leaned in to hear his passion-filled, fresh perspectives on business trends, product development, advertising, marketing, and branding. His presentation was filed with bold and relatable business narratives of his and others success stories on products that we have all come to love. In short, it was an absolute pleasure working with Kevin. I would tell anyone if you are looking for a superb speaker and business mastermind to inspire, educate, and recharge your business community... call the original investor Shark, Kevin Harrington."
