Livio Sgarbi on Stage

      A world famous peak performance coach, founder and CEO of the consulting and training company Ekis, Livio Sgarbi describes himself as being the right person at the right time. His results are supporting that view. His client list includes multinational companies like Nokia, Enel, McDonald’s, Glaxo, Bvlgari, Glaxo, Erg, RAS, Johnson Wax, Alfa Romeo, Mediaset Premium, Credem, Sony Play Station, Roche, Marazzi, Aarkstore, Philip Morris and others. Given his love for sports, he easily managed to add many sports teams to the list, too: football, volleyball, handball, basketball, golf, tennis and others. As a personal coach, he trained the likes of Carlo Ancelotti, Francesca Piccinini, Massimo Caputi, Sebastian Frey, Vincenzo Iaquinta, Andrea Pavan, Fabio Fognini, Simone Bolelli and other public figures.

       He was invited to various TV and radio programs such as RAI, Mediaset, Sky, MTV, Radio Deejay, 105, Capital and others. He holds seminars and live events all over Europe and is also the author of books and DVDs on how to become a winner in life, work, and sports. His training provides strategies for improvement in three areas: health, work, and money and he even offers free videos on How to Take Control of Your Life, The Secret to Success and How to Improve Your Results More and More.

       Livio feels there is no sustainable success without kaizen, a Japanese word which he translates as the constant search for improvement. He applied that in his own life, where he went from the boy who knew he needed to learn everything on the go, not wait for anyone to show him how, to becoming a sociology graduate, then a mobile home Memotec instructor who worked 14 hours a day, seven days a week. After that hard training, he became a co-founder of Spain-based Adima – HRD Training Group, which allowed him to start coaching, hold training courses attended by hundreds of people, but also meet and learn from the likes of Tony Robbins and Roy Martina. In 2008, he came back to Italy and started Ekis, his current company, which provides both personal and corporate coaching and which allowed him to become quite an authority in the peak performance field, with over 25 years of experience.

       His training show companies how to reach their objectives regarding sales, profit, quality, and optimization by eliminating limiting behaviors and improving motivation, sales techniques, team management, leadership and interpersonal communication. For individuals, he has a whole series of NLP training courses, from beginner to advanced, as well as motivational courses and specialized courses on nonverbal communication and even coaching techniques. He gives all his secrets away, all you need is resilience. On the Ekis website, one can find this advice from the master: „to accomplish your dream, you need to want it with everything in you. This means to take concrete action, daily, towards the achievement of your goal. With determination and sacrifice. A more linear path than you may want, but one that will gradually take you to your destination. Full speed ahead.”
