Dirk Beveridge is one of the nation’s foremost business speakers, delivering messages that help organizations and individuals unleash their true potential. He works with firms to bring their strategy to life through keynotes, summits, and workshops as well as through his consulting firm, 4th Generation Systems.
As president and chief executive officer of 4th Generation Systems, Dirk and his team help manufacturers, suppliers, distributors, and services firms become more competitive and provide deeper value to customers.
In addition to being a tireless entrepreneur and in-demand professional speaker, he also runs the non-profit organization We Do Care, which provides tangible support for our men and women in uniform, veterans and military families. When he has a chance to catch his breath, you’ll find him either training for his next Ironman competition, writing his next book or enjoying time with his family. He also was a U.S. congressional candidate.
Dirk has helped transform the potential within many leading firms, such as Time Warner, Andersen Windows, IBM, Novartis, and Avaya. He also has supported top-performing midmarket companies, such as Berlin Packaging, Port Supply, and Performance Distribution Group. For more than 25 years, he has worked with over 3,000 organizations.
An in-demand speaker, Dirk provides timely, pertinent information to organizations on growth oriented topics, such as Leadership, Sales, Customer Centricity, Transformative Change, and Personal Potential. He is a passionate, energetic, and entertaining presenter who’s been featured on international speaking tours addressing groups on six continents.
His presentations are often followed by workshops and learning systems to build more long-term team commitment to a company’s vision and customer focus, which is how 4th Generation Systems was founded. He’s authored two best-selling books on sales management and leadership to help organizations make their strategy stick and “drive sales beyond.”
Dirk’s personal mission is to make a real difference for his clients, employees, stakeholders, and community. In addition to We Do Care, he founded The LEO Foundation, a charitable organization committed to helping adolescents make the right choices to become positive contributors to society.

"We would like to thank you for your presentation at our recent conferences sponsored for our distributors. The content was outstanding and right on target!"
We were looking for a resource to relay the appropriate message; without a doubt we found the right organization in Beveridge.
It seems that every time you speak to our group I feel the need to express my appreciation for the "outstanding" contribution you made. We agreed that the ultimate goal was to have our participants leave enthused, inspired, and focused as to steps they could take the following Monday morning to improve their management process. Iâm happy to say, you delivered!
It has been nearly two months since youâve addressed our National Sales Meeting, and the impact is still being felt. The tremendous job you did has left a resounding impression on all of our District Sales Managers. In my 25 plus years as a sales professional, I have never listened to such a captivating speaker.
