SPARK: Act like an Employee and Think like a CEO

Simon Bailey, author of Be the SPARK: Five Platinum Service Principles for Creating Customers for Life, provides a keynote on a fresh way of thinking in 2020 and beyond. As CEO (Chief Execution Officer) of your life, you’re intentionally accountable to having a fluid career vision, high performance behaviors, positive habits, and consistent execution. You have the uncanny ability to produce uncommon results in uncommon times.

Men and Women with SPARK understand that a paycheck is given to people who show up, and opportunities are given to those who think and work beyond what they are paid to do. Are you that person that the organization cannot live without?

Team Members with SPARK are transformational thinkers that positively impact everyone else around them by raising the vibrational level to produce tangible results. When everyone else is saying NO! Team members with SPARK find a way to say YES!

Men and Women with SPARK are leaders without titles who leverage relationship capital to do what is common in an uncommon way.

Men and Women with SPARK stop waiting for human resources to assign a new role and pivot from a job description to doing meaningful tasks.

Men and Women with SPARK fire themselves from their jobs and re-hire themselves as “intrapreneuers” intending to take their organization to the next level.

While serving as Sales Director at Disney Institute, Simon learned when he sparked moments for those he was serving he also sparked something in himself. He realized that with all of the hours we spend at work, if we are going to revolutionize our lives, we have to leverage the moments we are on the clock. Simon is dedicated to helping others uncover their inner fire and grow it each and every day. In the session, he will teach the mental algorithm to be a SPARK so you can accelerate your results.
