Happy New Year 2016!
I have never felt more prepared to go into a new year than this one. Thanks to 17 leadership teams in Australia and New Zealand we are ready for 2016 and I am SUPER EXCITED!
We call it Max 2.0 and you will hear a lot about all the elements that goes into this next level of Max in the month and years to come. Max 1.0 was the foundation years for Max International in Australia and New Zealand. In those years we had to heavily relay on “born” entrepreneurs. As we go forward we will continue to attract and develop Entrepreneurs, but we will add Intrapreneurs.
Before I get too excited telling you about Max 2.0, let me first give you a little background information about myself to help you understand where I am coming from and how preparations for this new stage in Max has taken place for years. Entrepreneurship, Leadership and Strategy has been my passion from when I started my first business at age 10. I have been on the board of directors or member of the executive team of more than 16 companies. I have been President/CEO/General Manager of companies in Australia, New Zealand, Denmark, South Korea, Japan, El Salvador, and the USA. I have been professor at three Universities, Most recently honored as the professor of the year at Utah State University where I teach Executive MBA students Advanced Strategy. As a management consultant to more than 100 companies I have been working with small startup entrepreneurial companies as well as many Fortune 500 companies. I have been helping companies such as General Motors, 3M, Johnson and Johnson, and Saudi Aramco in Saudi Arabia, the second largest company in the world with their leadership and strategy issues. I have spent the last ten plus years in the network marketing industry. All of this to tell you that I am Super Excited for 2016 and the launch of Max 2.0.
This is what we have planned for Max in Australia and New Zealand in 2016:
- Entrepreneurship AND Intrapreneurship:
In any given population there is about 2% who are Entrepreneurs and 98% that are Intrapreneurs. Entrepreneurs are people who see and go after an opportunity based in customer needs. These entrepreneurs are self-motivated and driven. They need very little if any support to succeed. Intrapreneurs are the 98% of the population who need Professional Development to succeed. In 2016 we have a program for both. Dr. Michael Glauser is the foremost expert in Entrepreneurship. He will offer an Entrepreneur Seminar on the Gold Coast May 20 and a key note speech on May 21. Ed Ludbrook, has been a leading authority in the Network Marketing Industry for decades and is an expert in the area of Professional Development. Ed will be the main facilitator at the Max Down Under workshops May 21 and 22. In addition there will be online learning modules for Professional Development and Entrepreneurship.
- Sick AND Active:
In my time with Max International I have been overwhelmed with stories of people taking the Max products and having great results. This is part of the Significance Max offers and is core. However, this success has made us focus so much on sick people that we have been forgetting all the people who want to be more active. In 2016 we have programs for both sick and active!
