Mike Paton has spent a lifetime learning from entrepreneurs. Today he works hard to give back – as a speaker, author, certified EOS Implementer, and as the Visionary for EOS Worldwide.
Paton grew up in a family of entrepreneurs. He cut his teeth in banking, then spent more than ten years running (or helping run) four entrepreneurial companies. In 2007, while trying to take a $7 million company to the next level, he found himself stuck and more than a little frustrated. His search for answers led to Gino Wickman, and to EOS. Paton quickly became a passionate advocate of the system and leader of a vibrant and growing community of professional EOS Implementers, clients and fans. He’s now conducted more than 1,000 full-day EOS sessions with leadership teams of more than 100 entrepreneurial companies.
During his journey, Paton wrote Get A Grip: An Entrepreneurial Fable with Gino Wickman. He’s also become an award-winning speaker who’s helped thousands of entrepreneurs learn and begin implementing EOS at dynamic, value-packed keynote talks, in-depth interactive workshops, and peer-group retreats. In all his efforts, Paton’s goal is simple: to help others master EOS by implementing simple, practical tools proven to help entrepreneurs get what they want from their businesses.
Paton lives in Minneapolis with his wife Kate. Together they have five boys.
