Beyond Entrepreneurship 2.0 (BE 2.0)

Cover of Beyond Entrepreneurship 2.0

BE 2.0 is Jim Collins’ latest work, an ambitious upgrade of his original Beyond Entrepreneurship. 

Beyond Entrepreneurship left a definitive mark on the business community, influencing the young pioneers who were, at that time, creating the technology revolution that was birthing in Silicon Valley. Decades later, successive generations of entrepreneurs still turn to the strategies outlined in Beyond Entrepreneurship to answer the most pressing business questions. 

BE 2.0 is a new and improved version of the book that Jim Collins and Bill Lazier wrote years ago. In BE 2.0, Jim Collins honors his mentor, Bill Lazier, who passed away in 2005, and reexamines the original text of Beyond Entrepreneurship with his 2020 perspective.

Key Audience Takeaways

All of Jim Collin’s keynote speeches are informed by rigorous research and analysis, and reference real-world data and statistics. His complete findings and insights are captured in his several best-selling books, such as Good to Great and Great by Choice


The Level 5 Evolution

How to grow into an unstoppable leader. 

All great organizations are run by Level 5 Leaders. Such leaders have, in addition to high executive functioning, extreme personal humility and intense professional will

Although, what truly sets a Level 5 leader apart from a Level 4 is one thing: Selflessness. Level 5 leaders do not work for their own success, but for the greater benefit of their companies. 

In this speech, Jim Collins explains how you can evolve into a Level 5 Leader, and why their traits make them destined for greatness. 


Good to Great

Big Does not equal great, and great does not equal big. 

What makes a great organization? Businesses must aim for sustained, superior performance in earning a return on invested capital. However, for a social sector organization, efficacy in performance should be valued the most. 

The Good to Great principles were created through rigorous and systematic research by comparing the success of companies in identical circumstances. Jim Collins will walk your audience through the do’s and the don’ts of making a successful business. 


20 Mile March

Setting Achievable, Unchanging, Long-term Goals

The most successful organizations knew their 20 Mile March. They knew the goals they would hit no matter the challenges along the way. 

You need your own 20 Mile March, a goal to exert a sense of self-control in a world that is out of control. Most importantly, the 20 Mile March is a long-term goal. Your daily concerns should be “What do we need to do today to hit our goals today, for the year, and the next twenty-five years.”
