Over the past two decades, Larry Farrell has personally taught entrepreneurship to more individuals, organizations, and governments than any person in the world has.
Mr. Farrell's first book, Searching for the Spirit of Enterprise (1994), established him as an international authority on entrepreneurship and high growth companies. His next book, The Entrepreneurial Age (2001) broadened that original theme by looking at how the power of entrepreneurship can be harnessed by companies and entire countries to compete and prosper in the 21st century. His third book, Getting Entrepreneurial! (2003), is an application driven guide for "the 70% of the workforce who dream of someday running their own business." His latest book, The New Entrepreneurial Age: Awakening the Spirit of Enterprise in People, Companies, and Countries (Brick Tower Press) is a thorough revision of all of his best works, combined with up-to-the-minute accounting of everything new we've learned about helping people, schools, companies, and governments around the world use the economic power of entrepreneurship.
Larry Farrell has a diverse background: Peace Corps Volunteer, University of California Law School, Harvard Business School, vice president at American Express in New York, president of Kepner-Tregoe in New Jersey, board member of The Economic Development Society in the U.S.A., and The Journal of Strategic Change in London. His three books on entrepreneurship have received critical acclaim and have been translated into several languages.
Examining the four fundamental practices of the world's great entrepreneurs, Larry Farrell provides simple and proven strategies for creating and implementing business plans on all levels, from the mission statement to day-to-day organization practices. He shows decision-makers ways to facilitate high-speed innovation, free the genius of the average worker, translate job satisfaction into high-quality production, and cultivate customer satisfaction and loyalty.
Mr. Farrell recommends a revival of the spirit of enterprise characteristic of new and small businesses. Big business, he asserts, has lost its sense of mission, and needs to reestablish its vision by incorporating concern for both its product and customers.
The founder and CEO of the Farrell Company, Larry Farrell heads the world's leading firm for researching and teaching entrepreneurial practices. He founded the firm in 1983, initially to introduce Tom Peter's seminars outside of the U.S.A. In 1985, he began groundbreaking research into the business practices of the great entrepreneurs around the world. The firm has affiliates in twenty countries covering Asia, Europe, Latin America, and Africa, with clients ranging from corporations such as Sun Microsystems, Citibank, Coca-Cola, DHL, Toyota, Matshusita, Unilever, and Business Week, to governments including China, Brazil, Malaysia, and South Africa. Nearly one million participants in 40 countries have attended the company's programs.
