Profit from Disruption and Exponential Change

How does a convenience store executive facing a dramatic drop in walk-in customers during the pandemic, grow revenue? By becoming a necessity store expanding their offering of hot food and medical supplies and partnering with Lyft and Uber drivers to deliver those items to customer homes. The Answer is Anticipation, which is the ability to identify new actionable opportunities by foreseeing growing problems, disruptions, and customer needs.

Whether you’re wanting to grow during supply shortages, elevate your team’s performance while working in-office or remote, or looking for the latest game-changing opportunities, Daniel Burrus has a customizable consulting package to meet the needs of your organization.

“By applying Daniel Burrus’ principles to our business, in less than a year we have been able to double our revenue and increase the value of our company by a factor of four. We feel the biggest impact is yet to come.”
