In February 2017 I took on a business development role with Basilur Tea Australia. By not drinking tea, everyone around me said that it didn't make sense and seemed strange that I would be involved with the company - I didn't share that view. Nine months on and I manage part of the company.
As 2017 draws to a close, Tom Ryan launches his speaking tour in Sydney and Melbourne. Exactly twelve months ago Tom was preparing to sit the High School Certificate exams. Fast forward to today where he has over 20 employees, five ventures, executive positions at a dozen organisations, experience in the majority of industries, clientele spread across four continents, and the list goes on.
The day after Tom Ryan sat his last high school exam, he flew to Melbourne to assist in developing a business. He has continued to take this intensive work ethic and apply it towards his own organisations, educational pursuits, clientele and within the community, and he now has his sights set on the end of year speaking tour. The tour is targeted towards organisations, community groups, youth groups, student organisations and companies. On the speaking tour, Tom will specifically be presenting talks on the following:

Not all entrepreneurs are dropouts, and we shouldn't think that dropping out is necessarily the most suitable avenue for entrepreneurial minds.
As communicators, we are notorious for focusing too much on content without initially factoring in the processes of commanding the attention of our audience.
Here are some practical solutions to command attention, and hook your listener(s) at the start of your next presentation:
I watched this talk when I was 15-years-old and it allowed me to see things differently in life. Since watching this, I have had a profoundly different way of going about business and life in general, and I wholeheartedly believe that this can assist you too.
If you are looking at the title and thinking 'I hate classical music', then watch the entire video anyway - it is much more than the music.
The most impactful part of the talk for me was when Benjamin Zander said "I will never say anything that couldn't strand as the last thing I ever say."
I was prospecting with a business earlier in the year and it was only one of the first prospect meetings I had ever held. I was nervous as hell, didn't know how to collect my thoughts and confidence wasn't even on the table. Fast forward 11 months and I'm making over a thousand calls a week, training and developing my teams and prospecting is second nature to me. These are some steps I took in substituting my stress for strength.

This afternoon I sent out a Snapchat to my followers and I asked them all to send me a message with a topic for this week's episode of #AskTR. The responses I received all included the underlying point that almost no one wants to talk about - work.
This week I will talk to you all directly, with content I use in my SBDP that will specifically focus on generic ways to succeed in your respective field, and the ways in which you can cut the barriers which you currently face.
Not only will I cover my set agenda, but I will also take questions LIVE about the topic or any relevant topic(s) which viewers would like discussed throughout the episode.
I encourage you to get involved, share your question and embrace the value of the network.
See you Thursday, 8pm!
p.s. Don't forget this... Put a reminder in your phone!!!
In the first episode of #AskTR I wanted to capture the masses and see who would want to see high-value content. In reality, there was an overload of 14-18 year olds who didn't fall into my target audience, however I was still able to generate $4000 within 12 hours of the LIVE session due to their ATTENTION...
