Thor Conklin is an Entrepreneur, Profitability Consultant and host of his daily podcast, Peak Performers Podcast.  2018 marks his 18th year as an entrepreneur.  The first company Thor created was a global risk management consulting firm that served the private equity community.  His top 15 clients had a combined revenue of $12.7 billion USD and operated in over 100 countries worldwide. His background, in risk management, served him well when he lost 1/3 of his team, in the World Trade Center attacks, on 9/11.  Since that time, he has started, bought and sold several multi-million dollar businesses making him a sought after, cross-industrial resource for entrepreneurs and executives in all stages of business.

Thor has a talent for slicing through the noise of every day distractions and bringing his clients and audiences intellectual commodities like his: “Ultimate Success Map”, a simplistic, easy-to- follow guide for individuals who need to break through to the next level of achievement.  

96% of business fail within 10 years.  The ONLY reason they fail is lack of Profits.  Of the 4% that do survive, many only produce enough profits to break even, pay the owner a meager wage or provide shareholders below market returns.  Mr. Conklin’s extensive background and expertise allows him to not only identify the specific profitability killers that are siphoning off profits but work with the business to fix them.  Despite the leader’s best efforts, many business owners and executive cannot see these profitability killers as they are too close to the company.

Thor’s gritty, no nonsense and direct approach uncovers the real truth about what is holding people and organizations back from realizing their full potential.  He can illuminate even the most successful and confident leader’s limiting beliefs. He is known as the Accountability & Execution Guy.  

Through his consulting firm, Peak Performance Group, he teaches the tools, tips, tricks, psychology and strategies necessary to be a Peak Performer. He qualifies the psychology of success in one word: Execution”!  “Nothing you’ve learned matters – unless you can EXECUTE”!

Dean Kroetsch is in his Mid-fifties, happily married father of four, grandfather of one J. Active all my life in recreational sports but I don’t really consider myself an “athlete”. I do take pride in being in it for “the long run”; married to the same beautiful woman for 32 years. I've worked for the same company and career for over 36 years. And I run long distance races fundraising for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society of Canada through Team In Training.

​​I ran some cross country when I was in junior high school but not since. My daughter Brianne got me back into running in 2014. We went in a half marathon in Calgary where I saw the table for Team In Training.
​​
​​My Dad is a leukemia survivor. Bone marrow transplant in 1990. Still alive today. 14 grandchildren and three great-grandchildren he wouldn’t have experienced were it not for the research done and the patient care given to him. I help fundraise so others can live lives of victory.

Glenn Livingston, Ph.D. is a veteran psychologist and was the long time CEO of a multi-million dollar consulting firm which has serviced several Fortune 500 clients in the food industry. Glenn has sold $30,000,000 of marketing consulting services over the course of his career.

You may have seen his (or his company’s) previous work, theories, and research in major periodicals like The New York Times, The Los Angeles Times, The Chicago Sun Times, The Indiana Star Ledger, The NY Daily News, American Demographics, or any of the other major media outlets you see on this page. You may also have heard him on ABC, WGN, and/or CBS radio, or UPN TV. Disillusioned by what traditional psychology had to offer overweight and/or food obsessed individuals, Dr. Livingston spent several decades researching the nature of bingeing and overeating via work with his own patients AND a self-funded research program with more than 40,000 participants. Most important, however, was his own personal journey out of obesity and food prison to a normal, healthy weight and a much more lighthearted relationship with food.
