Eric Saperston’s keynote address wows audiences with refreshing wisdom, humor and inspiration he has acquired cold-calling the most powerful people in the world and taking them out for coffee. His journey explores in depth the common traits, motivating factors and guiding principles which enable everyday people to produce extraordinary.

People who get up in the morning excited and go to bed fulfilled are living in wonder. They say “Yes” to great mystery of life unfolding. They ask for help. They are resourceful. They are a force of nature. People who live in wonder are possible-tarians and they embody the positive change they wish to see in the world. We believe if more people are living in wonder, in the awe, the rapture and the astonishment of it all, that coming from those places will open dialogues, create community and build global citizenship.

This highly acclaimed keynote address is a deeply inspiring and optimistically uplifting pilgrimage into the minds, hearts and actions of the most powerful and accomplished people in the world. Drawing upon his interviews with over two hundred of the most successful thinkers, leaders and doers on the planet, Eric Saperston takes us on an engaging adventure to explore and uncover the common truths, motivating factors and guiding principles which separate those who achieve greatness in this world from those who do not.

They say a journey of a thousand miles always begins with the first step… The Call to Adventure. In this dynamic and engaging keynote conversation, Eric Saperston will explore in an entertaining and uplifting fashion the extraordinary Hero’s Journey to Greatness. With insightful stories from his adventure combined with the lessons he’s learned from world leaders, Eric will inspire audiences with refreshing tales from his life’s journey. He’ll talk about the call to adventure, the refusal of the call, crossing over the first threshold, meeting the mentor, over- coming tests, trials and obstacles, the decent into the inner most cave, slaying the dragon and the profound discovery of the elixir. Themes discussed: Courage, Resourcefulness, Creativity, Problem Solving, Character, Integrity and Greatness.
