Are you an Introverted Leader? Trying To Build Recurring Wealth? Know Your Unique Brand? Entrepreneurs’ Organization (EO) Houston Announces EO Talks

March 4, 2019

HOUSTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Mar 4, 2019--Entrepreneurs’ Organization (EO) Houston will be hosting its first annual EO Talks, in partnership with Insperity, to be held the morning of April 25, 2019 at Houston Baptist University, bringing together Houston’s top entrepreneurial thought leaders, change-makers, and influencers. Tickets are available to the public.

“Six entrepreneurs will share ideas, business lessons, and successes. We hope to inspire our local business community as well as highlight the mission, vision, and values of the entrepreneurial spirit in Houston by sharing their stories,” says Jarred King, EO Houston Chapter President and CEO of Swagger Agency.

We are proud to announce the following EO Houston speakers and their topics:

1. Winnie Hart will present “What Do You Stand For?”

Winnie Hart says, “If you don’t stand out, you lose. Your challenge is to identify those things and nurture them, expose them and promote them – because they are your distinct advantage and the source of your success.” For more than 25-years, twins Winnie Brignac Hart (Chief Right Engine) and Lorrie “L” Brignac Lee (Chief Left Engine) have been leveraging their twin talents (left brain/right brain thinking) to help companies grow by engaging strategic and creative approaches to reaching their goals. They have authored several books including: Stand Out: Tools To Master The 8 Fundamentals Of Standing Out In Business and What Do You Stand For?

2. Ali Nasser will present “The Entrepreneurs Opportunity Cost™”

Ali believes entrepreneurs see risk very differently than the rest of the world. He will explain the concept of the Entrepreneurs Opportunity Cost™ and how the most successful business owners use it to change the way they make future decisions for their business and wealth. Ali says, “I’ve heard over a thousand entrepreneurs tell the story of how they got started in their businesses and have noticed uncanny similarities in the way they think, grow, and see opportunity.”

3. Dr. Joe Galati will present “America’s #1 National Security Threat.”

Obesity in America – especially childhood obesity – poses a significant threat to our national security, as well as the success, financial livelihood, and survival of the next generation. 1/3 of all military recruits are rejected due to obesity, and that current research indicates that this generation of children will not live as long as their parents due to premature diabetes, heart disease, and cirrhosis. Dr. Galati is President of Liver Specialists of Texas, in the Texas Medical Center and has held many prominent positions, including Medical Director of Transplant Hepatology at University of Texas Medical School, Medical Director - Sherrie and Alan Conover Center Liver Disease and Transplantation at Houston Methodist Hospital. Dr. Galati hosts and produces “ Your Health First,” a weekly one-hour radio program on iHeart Radio’s 740 am KTRH every Sunday evening. He is the author of the Amazon Best Selling book, Eating Yourself Sick and has conducted numerous clinical research studies on new compounds targeting fatty liver disease.

4. Author of the #1 Amazon bestselling book,Mailbox Money, Chris Hotze, will present “Understanding the Power of Recurring Revenue.”

A recurring revenue relationship is the most fought over space in the business world. Apple and Amazon want to host your files in the cloud. Mercedes Benz and Lexus want to lease you a vehicle and give you incentives to lease the next one. Businesses with recurring revenue are valued much higher than those that don’t have a predictable revenue stream. Likewise, on the personal investment front, having a recurring revenue model will transform your life and provide you freedom like you have never experienced. Hotze is the CEO and Founder of Crescere Capital, a privately owned commercial real estate investment and development firm with an opportunistic value-creation strategy within the retail, industrial and commercial development sectors. Chris’s adept investment strategies are focused on cycles and trends, monetizing assets as certain cycles and trends mature while simultaneously shifting into emerging opportunities.

5. Shoshi Kaganovsky, Entrepreneur, technology scout, proud geek and innovation freak will present “Women Entrepreneurs - To Be Or...To Be the Best.”

Shoshi, the 33-year-old founder of SensoLeak, presents her inspiring story of a woman entrepreneur in the male-dominated oil and gas industry. An Israeli investor and serial entrepreneur, Shoshi has been named one of the 20 most influential women in Israel and one of 70 most brilliant innovators of all times in Israel history. Already a serial entrepreneur in Israel, she moved the headquarters of SensoLeak to Houston’s Energy Corridor to bring her disruptive new approach to pipeline leak prevention and detection to the energy capital of the world. Her company is proceeding to upend the way pipeline leak prevention and detection are done, using the latest artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning (ML) and the Internet of Things (IoT). SensoLeak is currently being used for pipeline diagnostics in the U.S., Canada, Japan, Western Europe, Russia, Middle-Asia, Australia, Central-Asia, and Africa.

6. Darlene Gagnon will present “The Introverted Entrepreneur Competing in an Extroverted World.”

Who is the best leader, an introvert or an extrovert? In today’s digital age with celebrity entrepreneurship at an all-time high, it’s easy to consider extroverts to be the most promising entrepreneurs and leaders. However, current thinking suggests that introverts can be just as competent as extroverts in leadership roles. Darlene will discuss the aspects of how to succeed and thrive given this unique temperament and how to lead from behind. This striking style puts the focus on developing a team’s leadership and doing the strategic and critical thinking required to compete and create sustainability in the future of an entrepreneur’s business. Darlene is CEO and Founder of Kinetic Promotional Product Services and We Kinnect Global Branding Agency and an award-winning entrepreneur recognized by the  National Association of Women Business Owners  and  Enterprising Women  as a leading Inspirational Entrepreneur. Her companies have won such awards as Best Places to Work and Largest Agency in their respective cities in the U.S. and Canada.

Paul Sarvadi, CEO of Insperity will also speak about creating a market segment that’s grown Insperity into a multi-billion dollar company. Other sponsors include Weinstein Spira and InnovationMap. Tickets are available for purchase through Eventbrite. For more information contact Jennifer McClanahan jennifer@eohouston.com, 713-858-1206.
