Mike Paton has been learning from entrepreneurs for most of his life. Today he works hard to give back – as an award-winning speaker, best-selling author, Certified EOS Implementer®, and as the Global Ambassador for EOS Worldwide.

Paton discovered the Entrepreneurial Operating System® (EOS®) a dozen years ago while trying to take a $7 million company to the next level. Feeling stuck and more than a little frustrated, his search for answers led him to Gino Wickman and EOS. Having helped run four entrepreneurial companies, Paton instantly recognized the power of this simple, holistic “way of operating” a small business. He quickly became a passionate advocate, joined the Professional EOS Implementer Community™, and dedicated himself to helping other entrepreneurs get what they want from their businesses.

Since then, Paton has conducted more than 1,400 full-day sessions with the leadership teams of more than 135 companies and helped thousands more entrepreneurs by sharing EOS in dynamic talks and workshops the world over. During that journey, Paton wrote “Get A Grip: An Entrepreneurial Fable” with Gino Wickman and then succeeded Gino in the role of Visionary for EOS Worldwide for five years. Today as the Global Ambassador for EOS Worldwide, he spends all his time helping entrepreneurs implement EOS, run better businesses, and live better lives

Paton lives in Minneapolis with his wife Kate. Together they have five boys.
