Jeffrey Hayzlett is a global business celebrity and primetime television show host on Bloomberg Television. From small businesses to international corporations, he puts his creativity and extraordinary entrepreneurial skills into play, launching ventures blending his leadership perspectives, insights into professional development, mass marketing prowess, and affinity for social media.
Jeffrey is a leading business expert, cited in Forbes, SUCCESS, Mashable, Marketing Week and Chief Executive, among many others. He shares his executive insight and commentary on television networks like Bloomberg, MSNBC, and Fox Business. Jeffrey appeared as a guest celebrity judge on NBC’s Celebrity Apprentice with Donald Trump for three seasons. He is executive producer of a number of global television projects and is a frequent contributor to the American Marketing Association’s AMA TV and Marketing News publication. With a strong following in business and social media communities, he’s recognized as one of the Top 10c‐suite Twitterers and a key influencer in the social media landscape.
Jeffrey is the author of two business bestsellers, Running the Gauntlet: Essential Business Lessons to Lead, Drive Change and Grow Profits and The Mirror Test: Is Your Business Really Breathing. The Mirror Test received acclaim on numerous bestseller lists including Inc’s 800CEORead, The Wall Street Journal and USA Today. From the world of academia at leading business schools to corporate training and c-level circles, The Mirror Test’s thought-provoking lessons are told with bold simplicity, readability, and humor. Christie Hefner, former CEO of Playboy Enterprises, says The Mirror Test, “…provide(s) fresh insights and actionable advice in an engaging style.”
Jeffrey’s second bestseller, Running the Gauntlet, released in January 2012 and answers the question: How do I change my business in a way that instills enthusiasm and increases profits? Providing the inspiration and tools for spearheading dramatic change, Jeffrey helps readers tackle their biggest obstacles to making changes necessary for business success: fear, apathy, and failure to take personal responsibility. In his trademark fast-paced, brash, humorous style, he provides a realistic approach to competing effectively in an increasingly competitive business environment.
Not only engaging through his writing, Jeffrey’s presence and insight is in demand; he frequently appears at events globally, addressing business growth, communications, and marketing, and is in demand around the world for conferences, events, and corporate planning meetings.
Jeffrey has years of international marketing, sales, and customer relations management experience. In 2010, Jeffrey stepped down from his role of Chief Marketing Officer at Eastman Kodak Company after four years with the company where he was responsible for Brand Development and Management, Market Development, Corporate and Product Public Relations, Communications and Public Affairs, Corporate Sponsorships, Business Development, Corporate Relationships and Partnerships, and Marketing.
Prior to joining Kodak, he led a private business development and public relations firm specializing in the technology and visual communications industries. He also held senior management positions in strategic business development and marketing at several companies, including Cenveo, Webprint, and Colorbus, Inc., and served in staff positions in the United States Senate and House of Representatives.
Currently, Jeffrey leads The Hayzlett Group and Tall Grass Public Relations, offering strategic business, marketing, and PR consulting, leading change for high growth businesses globally. Drawing upon an eclectic background in business, buoyed by a stellar track record of keynote speaking, and deeply rooted in cowboy lore, Jeffrey energizes his role driving and delivering change. He is a turnaround architect of the highest order, a maverick marketer who delivers scalable campaigns, embraces traditional modes of customer engagement, and possesses a remarkable cachet of mentorship, corporate governance and brand building. Even when away from his home state of South Dakota, Jeffrey can always be found in his trademark cowboy boots.
“Jeff Hayzlett is the real deal. He is a world-class motivational speaker and a sales, marketing, and social media genius. He is hard hitting and funny. His message is relevant and inspired our franchisees to take action. I have hired Jeff many times to speak to our groups and will again.”
– Rich Lowe, President and Chief Operating Officer of Franchise Services, Inc.
“Jeff was the keynote at the PostNet 2011 annual conference and he DELIVERED! In addition to getting rave reviews from our franchisees, Jeff presented useful, current information and best practices in an entertaining style. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Jeff to any franchise organization that is embracing change and wants to motivate franchisees to do the same.”
– Brian Spindel, Co-Founder PostNet
“The first time we hired Jeff to deliver a keynote at our Sales 2.0 conferences the audience ratings went off the charts. Jeff delivers high impact ideas with high energy and he shares real life stories drawn from his rich business experience. He is a rock-star when it comes to subjects such as marketing, change management, Sales 2.0, Social Media, innovation, leadership, motivation, human psychology and belly-to-belly selling. What’s best about him is that he keeps on innovating and he never delivers the same material twice. Every time he speaks for us he fills the room, he holds his audience spellbound and you don’t see anyone checking their iPhone or Blackberry. Jeff, I applaud you.”
– Gerhard Gschwandtner, Founder/CEO Selling Power Magazine
