Meet Our 2022 Exit Planning Summit Keynote Speaker


Meet Our 2022 Exit Planning Summit Keynote Speaker

We are thrilled to officially announce our 2022 Exit Planning Summit Keynote Speaker. This May, our community of Certified Exit Planning Advisors and business owners will learn how to live their ideal life from the creator of the Entrepreneurial Operating System (EOS), Gino Wickman. 

Recently, EPI President, Scott Snider, had the pleasure of speaking with Gino Wickman about the growing partnership between EPI and EOS. Gino states, “I feel the passion that comes through from your organization. You genuinely care about your advisors. So this message that I am going to share, and the work that we both do, I really believe that it will be a big ‘wow’.” 

Scott Snider shares, “I had the opportunity to see Gino speak at the EOS Worldwide Conference in April 2021. It was legitimately life-changing.”

Who is Gino Wickman?

An entrepreneur since the age of 21, Gino had an obsession for learning what makes businesses thrive.

At 25 he took over the family business, which was deeply in debt and in need of help. After turning the company around and running it for seven years, he and his partners successfully sold the company.

Gino then set out to help business owners and leaders get what they want out of their businesses. Based on his years of real-world experience, he created the Entrepreneurial Operating System (EOS), a practical method for helping companies and people achieve greatness. 

He has personally delivered more than 1,900 full-day sessions for more than 135 companies, helping them implement EOS. He is also the author of the award-winning, best-selling book Traction: Get a Grip on Your Business, which has sold over 1 million copies, as well as five other books in the Traction Library that have sold almost 2 million copies.

Gino is the founder of EOS Worldwide, an organization that helps thousands of businesses implement EOS with the aid of an international team of over 450 professional and certified EOS Implementers and online support. There are over 130,000 companies using the EOS tools worldwide. 

He now spends his time helping people live their optimal lives.

What is EOS Life?

The EOS Life is Gino Wickman’s newest book and resource for business owners and advisors. In The EOS Life, Gino gives you everything you need to live your ideal life.

The EOS Life was written primarily for entrepreneurs, but its promise extends to company employees as well as their families and loved ones. In short, The EOS Life is for anyone who wants to get more out of life and make it the best it can be.

Gino is an exited owner himself and credits his second successful exit to EOS Life. He says, “I knew what my next passion was. I knew my purpose. The day I sold, I had no responsibility to that organization and I could go to my next passion right away.”

What to Expect: Keynote Address

Gino Wickman’s keynote address will help business owners and advisors alike find purpose in their lives. This keynote address includes an hour presentation and a half-hour of in-depth audience Q&A. Gino shares, “Living your optimal life means you are creating a life for yourself where you have more energy, creativity, and freedom for yourself. You are ultimately going to make a bigger impact on the world. I will show you exactly how to do that. I will show you where you are on the spectrum of living your optimal life and will show you how to get to the finish line toward living your optimal life.”   

All attendees at the 2022 Exit Planning Summit will leave with the resources to implement into their businesses immediately. Scott Snider says, “The EOS Life and Gino’s keynote include actionable education. He provides the audience with a list of things they can take into their lives immediately. A lot of our CEPAs are entrepreneurial as business owners or leaders. So not only will they be able to take these teachings to their clients, but in their own businesses and lives as well.” 

Additionally, every Exit Planning Summit attendee will receive their own copy of Gino Wickman’s newest book, The EOS Life. 

The Exit Planning Summit

We are excited to welcome hundreds of Certified Exit Planning Advisors Sunday, May 1 – Tuesday, May 3, 2022, to Scottsdale, Arizona for a conference where top advisors, their teams, and business owners come to build deep relationships, share unique experiences, and uncover innovative solutions for their business.

The Exit Planning Summit is the coming together of the CEPA Community. The best CEPAs from around the world collaborate with their supporting partners and colleagues that are all helping business owners to create more significant companies. CEPAs will develop new or further current relationships, learn best practices, and advance themselves as advisors. Advisors will leave the Exit Planning Summit not only galvanized to accelerate their practice but with the tools and connections to do so.
