Guy Kawasaki (Apple) on Top 10 Mistakes Entrepreneurs Make | Startup Grind

Guy Kawasaki is the co-founder of Alltop.com, an online magazine rack of popular topics on the web, and a founding partner at Garage Technology Ventures. He is also a columnist for the Open Forum of American Express. Previously, he was the chief evangelist of Apple.

Mr. Kawasaki is the author of ten books including Reality Check, The Art of the Start, Rules for Revolutionaries, How to Drive Your Competition Crazy, Selling the Dream, and The Macintosh Way. His newest book, Enchantment: The Art of Changing Hearts, Minds, and Actions, released in March, is a New York Times bestseller. The lessons in Enchantment are drawn from Mr. Kawasakis tenure at Apple, as well as his decades of experience as an entrepreneur and venture capitalist.

Guy Kawasaki has a BA from Stanford University and an MBA from UCLA as well as an honorary doctorate from Babson College.

Of his time with Apple Computer Inc., Mr. Kawasaki says, When I saw what a Macintosh could do, the clouds parted and the angels started singing. For four years I evangelized Macintosh to software and hardware developers and led the charge against worldwide domination by IBM. I also met my wife Beth at Apple during this timeframe-Apple has been very good to me. Around 1987, my job with Apple was done. Macintosh had plenty of software by then, so I left to start a Macintosh database company called ACIUS. It published a product called 4th Dimension. I did this for two years and then left to pursue my bliss of writing, speaking, and consulting.

Mr. Kawasaki's in-depth knowledge of the high-tech industry combined with his years of management experience enable him to address a wide range of audiences. His particular strength is the ability to quickly understand diverse industries and incorporate his pre-existing knowledge into a highly relevant and customized speech. He routinely gets rave reviews from clients including trade associations, packaged goods companies, service providers, insurance companies, educational institutions, and technology companies. He has spoken for organizations including Nike, Audi, Wal-Mart, Sprint, Hewlett-Packard, IBM, Saturn, Stanford University, TIE, Calgary Flames, The Body Shop, MIT, Forbes, and Aveda.

Guy Kawasaki is highly flexible and is willing to create a speech that is tailor-made for any audience.

Enchantment. This speech explains how to influence peoples hearts, minds, and actions. The goal is not to get your own way but to bring about voluntary, enduring, and delightful change. The power of enchantment enables you to maneuver through difficult decisions, break entrenched habits, defy the wisdom of crowds, and get colleagues to work for long-term, mutually beneficial goals. Based on: Enchantment.

Innovation and product development. This speech inspires and informs companies to innovate. Guy lays out the strategic steps to create new products and services by calling upon his experience with Apple as well as his study of dozens of world-class companies. This speech is ideally suited for events whose underlying purpose is to set new standards of innovation and change the world. Based on: Rules for Revolutionaries.

Entrepreneurship. This speech provides the fundamental knowledge needed to start a new organization. It covers topics such as fund raising, positioning, branding, recruiting, rainmaking, and business planning. The intended audience is anyone starting anything-from two guys starting the next Google to social activists. Based on: The Art of the Start.

Intrapreneurship. This speech illustrates the benefits of treating every company as a startup. It inspires managers to unleash entrepreneurial thinking at established companies while compensating for the unique challenges an internal entrepreneur faces. It fosters the pluck and creativity companies need to stay ahead of the pack. Based on: The Art of the Start.

Evangelism, sales, and marketing. This speech enables companies to use secular evangelism to get customers, employees, and partners to believe in a product or service. I chart a complete course for the beginning evangelist that covers such topics as how to define a cause, how to identify good and bad enemies, how to deliver an effective presentation, and how to find, train, and recruit new evangelists. Based on: Selling the Dream.

Technology trends. This speech explains the difference between building a business at the height of exuberance, and the depths of depression, in the recent business cycles. It features practical lessons to accelerate the success of companies in current conditions, and is based on my experience as an investment banker and venture capitalist. Based on: Years of Suffering.

Competition. This speech provides companies with a blueprint for competing with other organizations for customer attention, dollars, and loyalty. It draws upon dozens of examples from technology and consumer companies to teach the audience how to ethically and effectively defeat their competition. Based on: How to Drive Your Competition Crazy
