One of Australia’s most outstanding retailers, entrepreneurs and inspirational leaders and his straightforward, no nonsense approach endears audiences
Tom Potter, founder of Australia owned Eagle Boys Pizza, left school at 15 and found himself jobless at 23. He opened his first pizza shop in Albury, New South Wales in 1987 and proceeded to build his business to become Australia and New Zealand’s largest privately owned pizza company.
Tom is a country boy, starting his business with a minimal education and little money behind him. Tom built Eagle Boys to become one of Australia’s home-grown retail and franchise successes, through radical change, innovation and at times unusual business and marketing tactics. Along the way, Eagle Boys won various National Franchising Awards and Tom was awarded the Australian Financial Review’s Young Business Person of the Year. He was chosen to give the valedictorian speech at his graduation class at Harvard Business School.
Tom is one of Australia’s most outstanding retailers, entrepreneurs and inspirational leaders and his straightforward, no nonsense approach endears audiences to be inspired to change and cut through the clutter to achieve higher results at all levels.
Tom can reveal his trail of trials, tribulations and triumphs at your next luncheon, conference, workshop or after-dinner occasion and will tailor his speech to the required audience.
Tom’s Presentation Topics:
‘Inspiration, Change and Cutting Through To Your Customers’
By revealing his trail of trials, tribulations and triumphs, Tom sends every audience member away with 2-3 key messages that will help them improve their business going forward. Using anecdotes from his experiences in business and life, he imparts expert advice on topics including retail marketing, guerilla marketing, change and change management, what customers really want, getting to the core issues, and the key to great management.
An innovator and a leader, Tom Potter is the perfect keynote speaker for luncheon, conference or after-dinner events. He is also a highly effective workshop facilitator.
Praise for Tom:
“Because of his style and humour, Tom has a gift of being able to speak to audiences from all walks of life. Tom draws the audience in by sharing with them life’s trials and tribulations, the good, the bad and sometimes the ugly.” Heritage Building Society
