Eyes Wide Open with Isaac Lidsky and Chris Cooper

A powerful insight inspired my guest Isaac Lidsky to achieve his most ambitious dreams despite losing his sight to a blinding disease: it isn’t external circumstances, but how we perceive and respond to them, that governs our reality. Series regular “Weasel” on Saved by the Bell: The New Class, Isaac graduated from Harvard College at 19 and from Harvard Law School); served as a Supreme Court law Clerk ; was a Justice Department litigator; founded a tech start-up (sold for $230 million); turned a failing construction subcontractor into a highly profitable  construction services company (ten times larger); and founded Hope for Vision, a non-profit that funds the development of treatments and cures for blinding diseases. He’s been a main stage TED speaker and his book, “Eyes Wide Open” is a New York Times, USA Today and Indie bestseller. Join us for a conversation that will help us all to move forward with our eyes wide open!

In advance of my first ever public speaking gig, at a high profile event, I booked one to one coaching sessions with Chris Cooper.  They were invaluable.  Through working with Chris I learned so much in such a short space of time that I was able to pull together a well-structured and powerful PowerPoint presentation and deliver my talk with confidence.  It clearly paid dividends as I received some fabulous feedback.  This is a direct quote from one of the delegates:

“First time?!  Thought you created a clear, engaging and informative talk.  Have to say that, today, no other speakers I have seen have actually got the audience to interact with our own thoughts (rather than simply talking to us and asking rhetorical questions only) 😊 “

YAY!  Thank you Chris for your encouragement, support and for believing in me.  Sarah J Naylor
