Eric  Saperston

Eric Saperston

Prior to becoming a critically acclaimed film director & producer, successful author, and award-winning speaker & storyteller, Eric graduated from college, bought a '71 Volkswagen Bus, took his Golden Retriever Jack, and set out to follow the Grateful Dead and work a ski season in Aspen. While out on the road, he called up some of the most powerful and influential people in the world and asked them out for a cup of coffee. What started out as a personal journey to find the answers to life's biggest questions - Why am I here? How can I find happiness? What is success? - quickly turned into something much bigger than he ever had imagined. The result: "A stand-up-and-cheer documentary worth standing up and cheering for." -Bob Longino, The Atlanta Journal.

After college, Eric Saperston bought a 1971 Volkswagen Bus, took his Golden Retriever Jack, and set out to follow the Grateful Dead and work a ski season in Aspen. While out on the road, he called up some of the most powerful and influential people in the world and asked them out for a cup of coffee. What started out as a personal journey to find the answers to life's biggest questions - Why am I here? How can I find happiness? What is success? - quickly turned into something much bigger than he ever had imagined. As the journey unfolded, it attracted the attention of three others as they too felt disconnected and were searching for purpose and meaning in their lives. So they quit their jobs, risked it all and jumped in the bus. One man's summer vacation quickly turned into four people's vocation. This team of eager travelers meandered across the country, from Atlanta, Ga., to Seattle, Wash., shot 500 hours of footage and interviewed more than 200 people in search of wisdom and inspiration from the famous and not so famous. The result: "A stand-up-and-cheer documentary worth standing up and cheering for." -Bob Longino,The Atlanta Journal.

    "Eric was our closing keynote speaker at our national conference and he blew us all away. Eight thousand people were in attendance. The speakers before him were Walter Cronkite and Jay Leno. He had some mighty big shoes to fill and he brought the house down with his laid back, conversational, quick witted and insightful delivery of his message to our audience. Eric did his homework and weaved in poignant messages that were uniquely important for our organization. The crowd loved him for it. If you get the opportunity to hire Eric to speak at your event, do it!"

    Eric delivered a message that goes straight to the heart. He's an amazing story teller and he held the audience in the palm of his hand with his Life's a Journey story. In an entertaining way, Eric reaches every individual in the audience about personal values. We took Eric up on his idea to create even more impact by having photographs taken of our participants as they answered the question, "What does 'Live In Wonder' mean to you?' The photos brought our people right up there on stage to be a part of The Journey. Fun, entertainment, high energy, laughter and tears. You get it all with Eric."

    "A year after bringing Eric Saperston to the Coca-Cola Company, people are still thanking me for sharing this powerful story of leadership, vision and perseverance."

    "Eric Saperston is Huck Finn with a digital camcorder. He's Merriweather Lewis with a laptop. He's Charles Kuralt with a goatee. Saperston set out on a journey with the Grateful Dead -- and wound up on a 'Journey' fueled by advice from CEOs, movie stars, leadership gurus and a former U.S. president on how to lead a successful life. The result is "The Journey", an award-winning feature film. Eric's story is 'On the Road' meets 'Tuesdays With Morrie'. It's 'Roger & Me' meets 'Chicken Soup for the Soul'. It's MTV's 'Road Rules' with a heart. It's ....well, our advice? See the film."
