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!

Chris Cooper brings insight, energy, dynamism and warmth to every interaction. I recently had the great pleasure of being his guest on The Business Elevation Show on Voice America and the experience was superb. This came as no surprise to me in that Chris is a leader in his field of developing engaging cultures, engaged leaders and teams. I recently invited Chris to speak at a meeting at the Fides Network in London and his engagement and impact with the audience left everyone feeling charged and positive, with the most fantastic written and verbal feedback from our members. Not only does Chris have an understanding of the dynamics of business, it is also his understanding of human nature and the key role this plays in driving business success that sets him apart. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Chris to others, looking to elevate levels of engagement both internally and externally.
