In eight years as a certified EOS Implementer, Mike Paton has conducted more than 1,000 full-day EOS sessions with leadership teams of more than 100 entrepreneurial companies. Now a best-selling author of Get A Grip: An Entrepreneurial Fable (with Gino Wickman), and an award-winning speaker, he’s helped thousands of entrepreneurs learn and begin implementing EOS at dynamic, value-packed keynote talks, in-depth interactive workshops and peer-group retreats. Whatever the venue and format, Paton attracts large audiences, receives consistently high ratings and delivers real value that helps leaders “Get A Grip” on their business.
After a childhood and early career surrounded by successful entrepreneurs, Paton ultimately embarked upon his own entrepreneurial journey. He spent more than 10 years running (or helping run) four entrepreneurial companies. While trying to take a successful $7 million market research firm to the next level, Paton was introduced to Gino Wickman and EOS. He quickly became a passionate advocate of the system and leader of a vibrant and growing community of professional EOS Implementers, clients and fans. Today, Paton is proud to be a leading EOS Implementer who works closely with Gino to spread the word about this holistic management system. Part of that is the establishment of Achieve Traction, through which Mike is growing a talented team of certified EOS Implementers.
