What Eric Saperston Talks About:

What It Takes To Be Extraordinary
This signature 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 results.

Eric’s keynote illustrates how tenacity, resourcefulness, and asking powerful questions drive innovation, build strategic partnerships, create customer loyalty, increase sales and inspire long-lasting success. 

This inspiring keynote will address how:

  • Extraordinary people do not let their past, or the opinions of others, determine their present and future success. Nor do they settle for “acceptable” or even “good”. They insist on being “extraordinary”.
  • Extraordinary people are doers, not talkers. They don’t wait for conditions to be perfect before taking action. They do what they can, with what they have, where they are, evaluate effectiveness, modify behavior and adapt to change quickly.
  • Extraordinary people are impeccable with their words, rigorous with their communication and masters of the art of enrollment.
  • Extraordinary people conduct their lives based on clearly defined guiding principles.
  • Extraordinary people know that success leaves footprints; therefore, they model the behavior of those who have already succeeded.
  • Extraordinary people thrive during times of challenge, change and adversity. They see failure, setbacks and struggle as opportunities to grow, learn and innovate.
