What I Like to talk About


Offered as a keynote, half-day, or full-day presentation

Ultimately, no matter what industry you’re involved in, you are in the BREAKTHROUGH business!  Every day you seek to breakthrough with customers to generate loyalty, satisfaction, and relationship.  The key to lasting success in business is breaking through with your own team members so they eagerly embrace personal responsibility, committed purpose, and leadership.  They must see themselves as breakthrough leaders!  And especially in times of challenge, they must focus persistently on what they CAN do rather than wasting time and energy on the things they don’t control.  This one-of-a-kind presentation ignites the energy and true leadership potential in every participant. 

Breakthrough Leadership is full spectrum leadership that teaches every participant how to shape the future, energize the team, build effective relationships, drive results, and model personal excellence, integrity, and accountability.  In this vibrant, engaging presentation, you’ll gain new appreciation for your impact on others and how you can make a genuine difference!  The session creates a fresh, new, and exciting vision of leadership that includes:

  • Igniting “E” Power in your team—the #1 key to igniting others and self
  • Being fully present, the key to building people, trust, and balance
  • The most surprising and powerful essentials to recognition, acknowledgement, and appreciation
  • The critical importance of becoming a master of questions



You know the sad story... Sales hates operations...Operations can't stand sales...their only agreement is that they abhor the home office just a little bit more!  Though this description may be a bit of an exaggeration in your organization, it is absolutely clear that enormous energy, momentum, and results are being lost through the separation that comes from silos.  Brian Biro, America's Breakthrough Coach has tackled this challenge head on in real life, not just from the stage!  First he built one of the nation's largest and most accomplished swimming teams, successfully merging two top programs into a powerful and united program.  Next, as a corporate vice president at a leading transportation company, Brian used the same teambuilding principles and strategies you'll learn in this one-of-a-kind presentation to engineer a phenomenal turnaround that resulted in enormous sales and profitability growth while transforming a silo-infested organization to a high performance team!  Finally through his work as a speaker and consultant, Brian has assisted hundreds of organizations to come together and build environments of mutual support, true respect, and great appreciation for one another.  It's a formula that creates BREAKTHROUGHS! 



Organizations and individuals deal with change in three principal ways:

  1. Most merely put up with change.  They wait, react, and try to keep it at arms length.  If they’re lucky, these are change survivors.
  2. Some fight change and stay entrenched in old ways of thinking, acting, and leading.  More often these become change victims whose results, quality, and enthusiasm dive right off the charts.
  3. Winners embrace and quite often anticipate or create change!  These are change champions!  They recognize that standing still is actually going backwards. They understand that the best things they’ve ever experienced or accomplished came from change…doing things they’ve never done before and thinking in ways they never have before.

Becoming an organization of CHANGE CHAMPIONS injects tremendous energy, momentum, innovation, and vitality into everything you do.  Your team members are EXCITED to come to work.  They feel respected, appreciated, and engaged. 

In this breakthrough presentation every single participant will learn the simple but powerful keys to move from change survivors or victims to champions!  They will experience the joy of positive change and of accomplishing things they didn’t know they could do!  The result of this exciting presentation is a team that is more united, engaged, and focused on possibility rather than limits!

"Brian, simply put...you were AWESOME! I received SO many compliments that this was our best convention kick-off...ever! You were terrific, your stories found everyone's hearts and the end of the day was truly life changing, an incredible experience. It is we, who are grateful." 



"I have been having the most amazing conversations with my managers and they are having amazing moments and conversations of their own- they get how to come to their work differently and see the results- again, what a gift you brought to our team. Thank you many times over. You have changed us forever, profoundly affected me and my leadership and I know that of my managers as well. We are looking for the WOOs and are energized to seize them. We have our monthly leadership meeting later today and will be going over some of our learnings and re living a couple of moments via videos taken. "



"What a wonderful day Tuesday was for my team! The event and your passion were beyond my expectations. I have gotten emails from across my team sharing how impactful the insights, training, and emotional connection that was yesterday. I am sure you have heard this before, but many have commented that the training was the best and most tangible training event they had ever attended!. I recognize this should be handwritten, but wanted to send you a thank you note today while you prepare for tomorrow at the Reno site. Save Travels and Thank You again for creating such a memorable experience for my team."
