About our guest: Mike Paton

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.

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…
