First, there was The Number, A Completely Different Way to Think About the Rest of Your Life. It wasn't yet another how-to investment book so much as a groundbreaking look at our uneasy relationship with money in general, financial planning in particular. The Number started a national discussion about saving for the future and shaped how the financial industry marketed its products and services.

In many ways, Eisenberg’s book—The Point Is: Making Sense of Birth, Death, and Everything in Between—picks up from where The Number left off. The Number focused on "how much?" The Point Is zeroes in on "what for?" In short, it addresses what it takes to find enduring meaning and purpose in life. To get at an answer to that timeless question, Eisenberg sifts entertainingly through his own pivotal memories, and presents striking research drawn from psychology and neuroscience. We also hear from men and women of all ages who are wrestling with the demands of work and family, ever in search of fulfillment and satisfaction.

Who am I? Where am I going? What does it all add up to? The Point Is goes straight to the heart of how we explain ourselves to ourselves. And it all comes together in a fascinating tale, delightfully told both on the printed page and now onstage.

You are a mind reader, born with an extraordinary ability to understand what others think, feel, believe, want and know. It’s a sixth sense you use each day in every professional and personal relationship—but how well do you really know what your coworkers, employees, competitors or customers want or are thinking? In this high-energy, illuminating presentation, Nicholas Epley takes the audience on an exploration of one of the great mysteries of the human mind. How good are you at knowing the minds of others? How well can you guess what others think of you, know who really likes you or tell when others are lying? How well do you really understand the minds of those closest to you at work or at home? Why are we sometimes blind to the minds of others? Why do we sometimes talk to our cars, or the stars, as if there is a mind that can hear us? Why do we so routinely believe that others think, feel and want what we do, when in fact they do not? And, why we do we believe we understand our fellow workers, customers, competitors, spouses, family and friends so much better than we actually do? While Epley’s presentation will not turn others into open books, it will give you the wisdom to revolutionize how you think about them—and yourself.

Understanding why people buy what they buy, think what they think, and act as they do requires understanding how those people evaluate the world through their own eyes and from their own inside perspective.  One reason companies misunderstand their consumers, leaders misunderstand their followers, and managers misunderstand their clients is because they inherently evaluate other people from an outside perspective. In this presentation, Epley addresses what behavioral scientists have learned about these two differing perspectives, describes how they create systematic misunderstanding between people, and shares with audiences how you can align your perspective with others to understand them better in both your professional as well as personal life.

No matter how impossible they may seem, your dreams for personal and professional success are never truly out of reach if you Project • Prepare • Persevere®. This is the systematic approach to high achievement Susan Ershler developed while simultaneously climbing the world’s tallest mountains and leading sales organizations at some of the nation's largest corporations.

On May 16, 2002, Susan and her husband Phil made history as the first couple to stand together at the summit of Mount Everest, capping their decade-long odyssey to climb the Seven Summits; the highest mountains on each of the seven continents. In her stirring keynote, Susan tells the amazing story of their Everest experience, the setbacks they overcame along the way, and their triumphant return to reach the summit. She also shares the road-tested strategies she developed that can empower anyone to overcome their perceived limitations and achieve seemingly impossible goals.
