Tampa, Fla. – The Key Person of Influence Program (KPI), a one day leadership event for business owners and entrepreneurs, has selected Bruce Serbin, president and CEO of Serbin Media, Inc., to join its team of five top speakers from around the country who are all considered industry leaders in their fields.
The event is based on the book “Become a Key Person of Influence” which was a business bestseller in the UK and Australia. The book stresses the importance of becoming recognized as a highly valued person of influence in one’s own industry by focusing on five core strengths: pitching, publishing, product creation, profile building and partnerships.
“It’s truly an honor to be part of the KPI team and join such a strong group of talent,” said Serbin. “Together, our team of speakers will help small business owners take it to the next level of success.”
The first KPI event will be held in Tampa, Fla., at The David A. Straz Jr. Center for the Performing Arts, located at 1010 N. Macinnes Place, from 9:00 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Tickets are still available by visiting http://keypersonofinfluence.com/usa/go.php?p=a101&w=bkpi
Serbin will share the stage with five other speakers, including Kevin Harrington, the former star of ABC’s hit show Shark Tank who is known as “the king of the infomercial,” and Forbes Riley, better known as “the two billion dollar host” who is known for her role in the success of the Jack Lallane Power Juicer, Montel Williams HealthMaster Blender and other products that have become household names.
Since its launch in 2010, the one day event has run in London, Sydney and Melbourne, and a new Singaporean event is planned later this year. In each location, approximately 500 entrepreneurs participate and learn from iconic “local heroes” of business.
“We’ve featured best-selling authors, CEO’s, large charity founders and people who have sold their businesses for vast sums of money,” the organizers say. “The large audience and the highly esteemed speaker line-up makes for an exciting and highly charged learning environment.”
The event is fast expanding into new locations. “Our goal is to operate the Key Person of Influence program in 20 cities around the world within the next four years,” says founder Daniel Priestley. “We believe this is an exciting time to be in business and that small business has an important role to play in a productive, functioning economy. At the core of our mission is a desire to share stories of small businesses that are thriving in this transformational time.”
