“Define what matters most to you, push past fears and excuses, and ask yourself, what could go right?”- Speaker Erik Orton.
“We believe you could customize a more confident, creative life centered around what matters most to you” – Speaker Emily Orton.
With charm, humor, and insight, speakers Erik and Emily Orton inspire audiences to live and work deliberately, dream with discipline, and do what matters most in life. The New York Times named their book, Seven at Sea: Why a New York City Family Cast Off Convention for a Life-Changing Year on a Sailboat, the top travel read in its 2019 Summer Book Review.
These delightful keynote speakers share the wisdom gained as they went from “broke” rookies to bootstrapping sailors, sailing for a year with their five children from the Caribbean back to Manhattan. They teach and inspire others to overcome fear, tackle the unconventional, creatively solve problems, navigate change, and align decisions with authentic convictions. They believe life does not have to be lived by default, swept along by the currents of consensus, but that each person’s work and life can be a custom fit, tailored to their actual values.
Erik is an Emmy Award-winning writer and theatre producer. Emily is a public school teacher turned homeschool mom and writer. Erik and Emily continue to travel the world with their children. In 2019 they completed a five-month trip across Europe via sailboat and VW van and also spent five months in the Pacific (Hawaii and New Zealand).
This dynamic duo will share their stories and insight on how to live your life on your terms.
