8 lessons to be different presented by Peter Ord

Typically, in life we have the answers, however it’s the questions we do not know.

One of Sydney’s leading businessman Peter Ord’s life-long lessons is knowing the right questions to ask. This is a skill he has harnessed in more than 40 years of management and marketing experience in Australia and internationally. Peter is a strong believer in the power of mentorship, having reaped the rewards of advice from some straight talkers.

Coraggio is delighted to extend a complimentary invitation to you to join us to hear first-hand how we can sustainably expand and future-proof your business, followed by an upfront and personal keynote speaker session with Coraggio’s Executive Director, Peter Ord.

Opened by Coraggio’s CEO, Richard Skarzynski, who will discuss how being a part of a Coraggio peer-to-peer Advisory Board provides a sustainable solution to navigate your business effectively throughout 2021 and beyond.

Followed by Peter Ord who will share 8 lessons to be different:

Lesson 1 – Move out of your comfort zone

Lesson 2- Start imagining and get excited about what you CAN do!

Lesson 3 – Find a hero who has commitment, courage, and passion as well as the occasional flaw

Lesson 4 – Saying no to something before you investigate implies prejudice and pre-judgement

Lesson 5 – Choose to do something uncomfortable which may make you wary

Lesson 6 – You cannot build a reputation on what you are going to do, instead you need to invest in what needs to be done!

Lesson 7 – The person not taking risks feels the same amount of fear as the person who regularly takes risks

Lesson 8 – The real secret of being different and successful is enthusiasm – Walter Chayster.
