In an era in which distributors are now competing against the smartest, boldest, and most customer centric guys on the planet, there is no choice for distributors other than to disrupt themselves and innovate."
Barrington, IL (PRWEB) September 30, 2014
Dirk Beveridge is on a mission to create a new wave of innovation throughout the distribution industry. He’ll discuss this need in-depth during the latest issue of Best Seller TV, an online business show featuring one-on-one interviews with best-selling authors. Beveridge discusses his new book INNOVATE! How Successful Distributors Lead Change In Disruptive Times with host Taryn Winter Brill. The episode is scheduled to begin airing on Tuesday, September 30.
The numbers from Beveridge’s research that he shares during the interview with Winter Brill are sobering:
81% of distributors believe much of the distribution industry is operating from “dated” business models.
72% believe their companies are too slow to make changes to their business.
“In an era in which average is over and in which distributors are now not just competing against the guys across town,” explains Beveridge “Distributors find themselves competing against the smartest, boldest, and most customer centric guys on the planet. When Jeff Bezos and others entering your space, there is no choice other than to disrupt yourself and innovate.”
Throughout the in-depth interview on Best Seller TV, Beveridge discusses:
How business leaders will remain relevant in the future;
The meaning of transformative leadership;
The economic, leadership and personal perspectives of innovation;
The essentials of the employee base;
And what it takes to drive change
Best-selling author, speaker, and former Fortune 100 CMO Jeffrey Hayzlett created Best Seller TV to give top-tier business authors a forum for sharing thought-provoking insights, in-depth business analysis, and their compelling personal narratives.
“Dirk Beveridge hits the nail on the head with his new book Innovate! In the disruptive times we live in, it's critical for businesses to adapt and change by being innovative,” explained Hayzlett. “On the newest episode of Best Seller TV on C-Suite TV, Dirk shares with viewers what it takes to drive change and remain relevant into the future – a must for all C-Suite leaders.”
