About the Author:

An entrepreneur since the age of 21, Gino Wickman has dedicated his life to learning what makes businesses thrive. At 25 he took over the running of 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. Based on his years of real-world experience, Gino developed the Entrepreneurial Operating System (EOS), a practical method for helping companies achieve greatness. Over the last six years, he has taught the EOS process to hundreds of business leaders in more than 90 companies. The results speak for themselves: companies that implement EOS grow by an average of 18% per year while eliminating common frustrations and experiencing more enjoyment. Gino is one of the original 10 members of the Detroit chapter of the Entrepreneurs Organization and served twice on its board of directors. His belief: "You cannot build a great organization on multiple operating systems. You must choose one." He is the founder of EOS and offers powerful and practical keynote speeches and workshops for small business leaders across the country.
