CEO & Founder of Herjavec Group, Serial Entrepreneur and
"Shark Tank" Investor

A star investor on ABC’s Shark Tank and the Founder & CEO of the prestigious cybersecurity firm, Herjavec Group, Robert Herjavec is distinguished as one of North America’s most successful entrepreneurs and technology business leaders.

Cybersecurity Expert

Since he founded Herjavec Group in 2003, it has quickly became one of North America’s fastest growing technology companies, scaling from $400K in annual sales revenue to a run rate of $150 million. Herjavec Group is recognized as a global leader in information security specializing in managed security services, compliance, incident response and remediation efforts for enterprise level organizations.

Serial Entrepreneur

The son of Croatian immigrants, Herjavec’s esteemed technology career was hard-earned. Under qualified for the first tech position he applied for, he negotiated the job by offering to work for free for six months; he waited tables to pay the bills and eventually moved up the ranks to become general manager. Using what he learned, Herjavec left and founded BRAK Systems, a Canadian integrator of Internet security software, which he sold to AT&T Canada for $30.2 million. He went on to negotiate the sale of another technology company to Nokia for $225 million.

Media

In addition to his weekly television appearances as a star investor on the Emmy Award-winning, Shark Tank, Herjavec was also a fan favorite on Season 20 of Dancing with the Stars. He is the author of Driven, The Will to Win and You Don't Have to Be A Shark which were simultaneously featured as top 10 bestsellers.

Keynote Speaker

Drawing from his life and business experiences, Herjavec delivers customized presentations full of practical insight and strategies on a range of topics, from technology and cybersecurity, to overcoming challenges and cultivating a will to win, to secrets from inside Shark Tank.

The Will to Win – Leading, Competing & Succeeding

Whether you are seeking to build the next big company in communications technology, to become the most respected teacher in your educational system, or to make a lasting impact as an artist in your field, the most important decision you can make, according to Herjavec, is to reject mediocrity. In the long run, “good enough” is never good enough, whether in our personal lives or in our careers. Drawing on anecdotes from his own life and from the lives of celebrity friends such as Oprah, Georges St-Pierre and Celine Dion, Herjavec delivers valuable life lessons that promise to guide readers to greater happiness and success.

Driven: How to Succeed in Business and Life

In his presentation, Herjavec shares his hard-won wisdom. Driven is organized by the work and life principles that made Robert Herjavec both wealthy and successful (indeed, these terms are not synonymous). Herjavec reveals the secrets that took him from waiting tables to growing his nascent technology company, The Herjavec Group, into a world-class conglomerate. His principles are as valuable in the living room as they are in the boardroom. Anyone can succeed, on their own terms, by following his sage but simple advice — as long as they’re willing to take chances, take control of their future and stay true to their vision.

Fast Forward and Focused
