Steve Sammartino Steve Sammartino
The Multiplier Effect

Steve is one of the world's leading keynote speakers on the future, having spoken to over 200,000 people around the globe.  Steve says that one of the best ways to supercharge any business is to leverage the assets of others.  We no longer need to own everything we use in business - just be able to access it.  The internet was built on the idea of collaboration and we don't to it enough.

We can access other people’s ideas, creativity, money, facilities, supply chains, systems and customers, and they should also be able to access ours. This approach creates a multiplier effect: we grow together. And there are more tools out there to facilitate this than you can imagine. This presentation will help you to tap into a world of opportunity - it’s easier than you think and Steve can’t wait to show you how.
