ABOUT ERIC EDMEADES
SERIAL ENTREPRENEUR, INTERNATIONAL BUSINESS SPEAKER, AUTHOR, HUSBAND AND FATHER.
I firmly believe that much of the change needed on our planet today — social, political, environmental — will be stimulated and brought about by entrepreneurs and business owners rather than politicians or the general public.
A true serial entrepreneur, Eric has spent the last 20 years starting, buying, selling and turning around businesses in 6 countries. Eric owns or has owned businesses in data capture, field service, wireless networking, events management, high fidelity medical simulation and Hollywood special effects where his companies worked on blockbuster movies including James Cameron’s ground-breaking Avatar, Neill Blomkamp’s Elysium and films in the Iron Man, Transformers and Pirates of the Caribbean franchises.
STRATEGIC ADVISOR AND KEYNOTE SPEAKER
Eric has logged over 10,000 hours on stage and spoken in over 20 countries around the world. Eric routinely speaks at business, marketing and technology conferences, film festivals, corporate engagements and does pro-bono talks and consulting for not-for profit organizations and schools.
Eric is widely regarded as one of the most effective business and personal mentors in the world. His life is a reflection of the results he creates for others. A long-time student of extraordinary living, Eric is extremely good at both inspiring and empowering people to live compelling, enjoyable and rewarding lives.
CHAMPION OF HEALTH AND SELF CARE
Eric is one of the true pioneers of the coming food revolution. The founder of WildFit, Eric is passionate about helping people, and in particular, children, achieve and experience outstanding health.
In 1991 Eric experienced a dramatic health recovery and then undertook years of research into the fields of human health, evolutionary biology and human history. Today, Eric is extremely passionate about helping people achieve vibrant health and inspiring people to take responsibility for their own self care.
DEDICATED FATHER AND HUSBAND
Eric is a proud father and enjoyed debating politics, health and the merits of music with his son who has just commenced study at UBC in Canada. In 2012 Eric married his long time girlfriend Elise and the two of them now split their time between being at home (and kiteboarding) in Cabarete, Dominican Republic and touring around the world working to inspire and empower people, companies and governments to achieve great things.
