  • Collaborating across the value chain to exploit new opportunities

OTHER PRESENTATIONS INCLUDE:

Making It Happen: Unleashing the entrepreneurial spirit and turning your good ideas into great results...

There is no shortage of ideas in the world. There is a shortage of people with the ability to transform those ideas into reality. Combining the need for imagination and action, ‘Making it Happen’ will go deep into the secrets of positioning ideas, products and services in a way that makes people not only pay attention, but to part with their time, money and energy.  There is no point having a new idea, developing your new strategy or embarking on a journey of transformation if your people can’t make it happen in the real world.

Making Money in the Cracks: Counter- Intuitive Strategies for Finding and Exploiting New Market Opportunities

Unleash innovation in your company by knowing how to find the opportunity in the “white space”.   Inspire leaders to take the risks necessary to make money in the white space and discover creative solutions to business problems by facilitating interdisciplinary thought.  Attendees will learn how to build structures that not only generate, but shine light on the best ideas in your business and how to break the cultural norms that squash the innovative new ideas you need to thrive. 

Moving the Market: Accelerate your impact by influencing how and why buyers make decisions

Ensure that your sales process is sophisticated enough for today’s buyer by capitalizing on the science behind the way people think, act and buy.    Learn how the world’s most profitable companies avoid competing on price, and how you can too.   

Nielson Group

"First off, thank YOU for rocking our group in Pebble. They LOVED YOU! You are awesome—personally, a delight and a gentleman, and professionally, the real deal. Your content, delivery, and engaging manner was just what the doctor ordered."

Corporate Executive Board - Managing Director

"Peter Sheahan could light a small town with energy, enthusiasm and insight. He combines deep practical knowledge with unending passion for both his subject matter and his audience. In my 10+ years of speaking with executive-level audiences, I find Peter to be unsurpassed in his ability to engage senior executives. Peter can draw out of your people answers to questions they did not know they had. That, and even more powerfully, he will have them question the very answers they come up with in a way that reveals an even deeper level of insight and understanding. Whether he is presenting or facilitating, Peter is clearly world class educator."

CEO Circle - Managing Director

"Peter, I cannot thank you enough for your outstanding presentation. Presenting to an audience of leading CEO's is always a challenge. But once again you exceeded their and my expectations. Your incredible global insights and thought provoking presentation engaged all in attendance. You related to each and every person in that room and all walked away with a "pearl". Always a pleasure working with you and look forward to a long association with you and Karrikins Group. "

LP Breakfast Club

I wanted to write and personally let you know just how impressed we were with Peter Sheahan. Over two weeks after his event now, both members and guests alike are still raving about his presentation at our Signature Breakfast and the PM Reception. Needless to say, he knocked the socks off of our business leaders here in Memphis and made his mark both on the front page of the business section of the Commercial Appeal, as well as with a number of members wanting to bring him back for some more in-depth workshops, including some time with our city leaders. Everyone found his insight, ideas, and expertise extremely valuable and thought-provoking. We loved his visual aides and examples of companies that have "flipped" their philosophies to find great success, such as Toyota, BP, Apple, and Nike. I personally thought it was very telling when he listed how we would prioritize our top needs, which was shocking in and of itself, but then went on to describe what that means to business today and how to take advantage of the opportunities "stitching" creates. The branding message was powerful, the presentation was exciting and dynamic, and his concepts were fresh and highly applicable. Personally, I agree with Peter in that it is critical today to understand the viral impacts and the need to communicate in all directions versus the top-down approach that was predominate for so long. This message resonated tremendously with our business leaders and I honestly believe that many have taken his presentation to heart. Peter was a pleasure to work with and was nothing but genuine and professional…with tons of great ideas! Personally, I am looking forward to having him come back to Memphis again. I would gladly recommend Peter to anyone or any group who is looking for a phenomenal business speaker or trusted advisor for their business. Thanks again for recommending him and for all your help in coordinating the efforts.
