Tapping into the Real Power that Drives your Business

Stan Slap is a renowned thought leader in gaining jaw-dropping commitment from your manager, employee and customer culture; the three groups that are deciding the success of your business while you read this sentence.

He wrote the New York Times and Wall St. Journal bestselling books on business culture. He is the CEO of the international consulting company SLAP, renowned for achieving legendary performance for many of the world's most successful organisations. In this talk, Stan will reveal some of his unique methods that will achieve the same results in yours.   

There are many metrics of a culture's commitment but the biggest won't be seen until your culture needs to show it: if your company ever gets into real trouble, only a committed culture will step up to save it. You can not bank that when you need it; you have to put it away ahead of time. Gaining this commitment is not only about achieving performance, it is about achieving performance insurance. This is the ultimate legacy for any chief executive.

Stan’s work has achieved legendary metrics impact for many of the world’s most demanding organisations, from Google, Facebook, Time Warner and HSBC to the IRS and the Government of Northern Ireland. Some examples on the employee culture side include transforming Hewlett Packard’s $12b North America channel business from what then-CEO Mark Hurd famously called “the worst organisation in the entire company” to what he then declared as “the best organisation in the entire company,” creating the highest rated management development process in Oracle’s history. 

Some examples on the customer culture side are creating the brand and thought leadership strategies for McAfee that caused Intel to buy them for $8b; creating the brand and audience experience strategies for Viacom that transformed black entertainment television from a $3.6b acquisition loss to a top 20 network; and creating the strategy that allowed Oskar, a tiny late entry startup in the Czech mobile phone market up against giants T-Mobile and Deutsche Telekom. EUTSCHE TELEKOM, to spank those big boys so hard that the little company was bought by Vodafone for $4b less than three years later.

SLAP company solutions have been successfully presented in over 70 countries and Stan is a frequently requested keynote speaker at global conferences. His corporate biography says that, “Stan Slap is intent on making a profound difference in the world – before he is forcibly removed from it.”© SLAP
