Purpose Passion People and Profits
Purpose, Passion, People and Profits – ‘Guiding your business with clarity and vision to a more profitable future’
What if you knew the ‘one thing’ that would show your business the path out of the GLOOM and into the BOOM? Serial entrepreneur Troy Hazard believes the answer is not found within something you seek, but more in something you already have and may have forgotten.
Troy is an entrepreneurial veteran who had bought, sold and grown more companies before his 40th birthday than some business people would even consider in a lifetime. As a result he has seen his fair share of cycles in the economy. In the first recession of the late 80’s he lost $250,000. In the second one in the mid 90’s the amount was closer to $1 million. In the tech wreck and the more recent correction of 2008, it was an entirely different outcome!
It was through these tough lessons early in his business career, that he developed a powerful personal strategy that helped him unlock greater purpose. This strategy reignited his passion and in turn that of the people he led, so he could go on to grow and develop a series of successful profitable companies over the course of a decade.

He will show you how to:

Revenue Through Relationships
Revenue Through Relationsips – ‘Developing significant customer connection’
In a world of connectivity, why is it that we sometimes fail to really ‘connect’ as humans? In our personal lives we all enjoy relationships that revolve around authenticity, honesty, openness, vulnerability, and respect. Yet in business we often treat the development of key relationships as a mechanical, somewhat technical event, as opposed to an emotional bond with another person. Why?
Given the new normal for business is faster, better, yesterday, it’s no surprise that the way we interact with our customer base has changed. However, the core reason for them wanting to connect has not.
Troy will demonstrate how to develop effective and efficient strategies to embrace the true emotion of a relationship in business and harness that with the technology we have come to rely on so heavily.
He will offer real world examples of what he has done in his businesses to not only stay relevant to his customer base, but also remain significant, in turn facilitating extraordinary growth.
Troy’s presentation delivers answers for how to:
- Identify the 5 key reasons why people do business with you.
- Use the new voice of word of mouth.
- Talk TO your customers not AT them.
- Maintain relationships that are emotive, distinctive, and collaborative.
- Develop the 6 relationships that drive revenue in your business.
Embrace Evolution – ‘Be first to change or first to die!’
It’s a fact – change is constant, change is inevitable, change is good… Unless, of course, it’s forced.
As business leaders we’d all love to tell our team to Change or DIE! For many years this was the catch cry in Troy Hazard’s businesses – until he learned that the more effective way to facilitate change was to ’embrace evolution’.
Through his 25 years as a business consultant and business owner of twelve companies Troy has turned around countless businesses. His philosophy is that you make change a consciousness in the business, not just an action. And to do that, you need to embrace evolution.
In this presentation Troy will walk you down the path to conscious change. He will identify the killers of change and how to avoid them, the drivers of change and how to harness them, the facilitators of change and how to inspire them, and how to put this all into your master P.L.A.N.
Troy’s presentation delivers real life lessons for how to:
- Avoid things that cripple a culture of conscious change.
- Develop evolutionary awareness in your business.
- Create a culture in your business that drives change.
- Hire and inspire team members to be evolutionary.

Troy really hit it out of the park! He listened to understand the theme and message that we wanted to deliver from an overall conference and content perspective and hit it on all cylinders.
Troy has unique, real-world experience both as a franchisor and franchisee, as well as consulting with franchisors around the world—he’s “been there, done that” in franchising. He spent the time on the front end leading into the conference finding out our objectives, and then determining how his message and what he’s passionate about fit together to create a meaningful experience for the audience. And so, it wasn’t about him, it was about them.
Rather than theory or an esoteric type delivery, Troy delivers real world franchise perspective, and it really made a difference, really made a difference.
