Igniting an earthquake preparedness movement in our workplaces and local communities

Keynotes, Workplace, and Community Resilience seminars that inspire leaders and advocates to replace our culture of inaction with a sustainable culture of resilience throughout North America’s Ring of Fire and beyond.

Knowledge is not wisdom until it changes you

– Steven Eberlein, CEO & Founder, Tipping Point Resilience

Just as seeds cannot grow without soil, ideas cannot flourish without their culture’s blessing. For two decades, preparedness education has done little to reach those who are not already receptive to the “get a kit” message, which is to say, very few. Tipping Point Resilience is a force of persuasion that confronts the non-prepper with a vivid, humanized and even humorous case for earthquake preparedness. We aim to till the soils that will allow preparedness practices to grow in our workplaces and communities.

Igniting Enduring Cultures
of Preparedness

Tipping Point Resilience specializes in earthquake preparedness and preparedness culture. We aim to spark a movement that will inspire families, workplaces and communities to adapt to the dormant earthquake threats looming over millions of US citizens, saving future lives and livelihoods.

Tipping Point Resilience seminars take a necessary step beyond showing you how and why to prepare for large events like earthquakes. We help you understand why you’re not preparing already by examining how corporate and community cultures either thwart or propel the best of our individual common sense. Tipping Point Resilience believes that provided a visual understanding of earthquake science and risk and the example of a relatable and realistically prepared family, we can persuade people to prepare based on knowledge and not fear.

“I highly recommend Steven Eberlein to anyone who wants to have a great presentation on earthquake resiliency in the Pacific Northwest. I worked with him for many years at the Red Cross, and his presentations were superb and engaging! They got people to rise to a level of action that got themselves ready. All of the ideas he presents are superb! He is a talented speaker!”

“All I have to say is…wow!!! Although I had seen his TEDx Talk and knew what a great speaker he was, Steve’s simply tremendous live and in person. And more importantly, I think he had a serious influence on the attendees of our disaster symposium. His presentation was informative, incredibly engaging and action-oriented — exactly what our audience needs and loves.”
