Sid Peimer gets to 'play'' with things like strategy, new business pitching, depression, fundraising, consumer behaviour, business turnaround and risk management (or it's cousin innovation). A popular speaker and frequent guest lecturer, Sid also gives you something people pay a lot of money for: a fresh perspective.
Everyone needs a Gump in their life. Even Forrest had Mama, and he had this to say about her: “Mama always had a way of explaining things so I could understand them.” Sid Peimer is pretty much a reductionist (or, as he would say - I need to dumb it down so I can understand it first).
For instance, explain this Forrestism: “Stupid is as stupid does”. You can't can you? Well, it means that an intelligent person who does stupid things is still stupid. You are what you do.
With Sid, life is like a box of chocolates: You never know what you're going to get, but you're certain to enjoy the experience.
Some of the delights he's provided:
Strategy Unplugged. What you won’t find on strategy in the library (or on the internet). What strategy really is – or isn’t.
Pitch Secrets. What you need to know about winning pitches. What works; what doesn’t.
Blue People Mean Big Bucks - Depression in the workplace. Sid is the originator of the 2METS mental health acronym.
