The Tony Robbins Podcast on Blue Ocean Strategy

Posted by: The Blue Ocean team

Interview with Renée Mauborgne

Tony Robbins, America’s leading life coach, entrepreneur, best-selling author, and philanthropist, recently spoke about blue ocean strategy in a podcast featuring co-author Professor Renée Mauborgne.


The Podcast:

Are you ready to move from downward pricing pressure to upward pricing possibility? Are you ready to start having customers seek you out rather than having to chase them down? Do you want to know the secret to making the competition irrelevant? Or how to transition from a red ocean of bloody competition to a blue ocean of uncontested market space?

“The concept, understood fully, can move any business person towards greater success.”
– Tony Robbins

In this episode of the Tony Robbins Podcast, you will hear from Renée Mauborgne – professor at INSEAD and co-director of the INSEAD Blue Ocean Strategy Institute, and author of the best-selling book, Blue Ocean Strategy, which has sold over 3.5 million copies across 5 continents and was recently updated and expanded in 2015 – as she discusses how any business can break away from the competition, get the world of social media to start talking, and build a strong brand.
