Peter Bregman: Hachette Speakers Bureau

Peter Bregman

CEO, Global Management Consulting Firm

Companies routinely spend millions of dollars on complex initiatives to increase leadership, improve teamwork, and empower everyone to contribute their maximum potential. Peter Bregman demonstrates that there are easier, more efficient, simpler ways to get there. We can maximize our potential with only slight shifts in our behavior - in how we use our talents, how we manage our time, and how we communicate.

In his book 18 Minutes: Find Your Focus, Master Distraction, and Get the Right Things Done and presentations, Bregman simplifies problems, making them smaller, not bigger. He offers solutions that are elegant, and remarkably easy to apply. We think these things are too small to make a difference but in fact, it’s the slightly different ways of doing things that have the greatest power - they’re easy to implement so we implement them. And they give us immediate positive feedback in the real world, so we stick with them.

Bregman’s speeches don’t just impart information; they shift action. From showing people a totally new way to productivity and meaningful engagement in 18 minutes a day, to helping people openly acknowledge issues and resolve them without blame, Peter provides tools and mindsets that get used. Because they’re easier, not harder, than the old ways.

Bregman teaches about leadership, self-management, communication, and personal productivity, drawing examples from his work advising CEOs and their leadership teams, as well as from ordinary life. Audiences relate to his message, as Peter gives simple, actionable, easy to implement takeaways.
Consistently the most-read blogger at Harvard Business Review, Bregman’s articles and commentary appear frequently in Business Week, Fast Company, CNN, NPR, The Financial Times, and PBS to name a few. He often receives feedback like, “That’s exactly what I needed to hear right now.” When people find themselves in frustrating and uncomfortable situations, Bregman shows them how to get what they want while strengthening their relationships with colleagues, friends, and family.
