Sometimes You Take a Trip.  Sometimes The Trip Takes You.

Eric’s story begins after college where he bought a old Volkswagen Bus, took his Golden Retriever, Jack, and set out on a cross country adventure to follow the Grateful Dead and work a ski season in Aspen. Challenged by his mentor to make a trip more meaningful, while on the road Saperston chose to call up some of the most powerful people in the world and take them out for a cup of coffee.

The reason: to find out the values they live by, the struggles they endured and what advice and counsel they would give others to better prepare themselves for the road ahead. The results: a development deal with Walt Disney Studios, an award-winning film The Journey, a global lifestyle brand, a speaking tour and his latest book Live In Wonder: Quests, Quotes & Questions To Jumpstart Your Journey. What started out as a personal journey to find the answers to life’s biggest questions (Why am I here? How can I find happiness? What is success?) quickly turned into something bigger than he ever imagined. He soon discovered he was no longer taking this trip, it was taking him.

Eric’s story is a universal gettable and audiences from top technology firms to sale leaders, pioneers in healthcare to visionaries in finance all agree that if you are striving to be at the forefront of your industry, Eric Saperston will spark your organization’s passion, amplify your businesses core values and higher purpose, celebrate and acknowledge your employees contributions and offer real life applicable wisdom from the most extraordinary leaders in the world.
