Empowering Emergency Management, Business Continuity, Crisis Management, Facilities, Physical Security, and EHS Teams to create enduring cultures of earthquake preparedness in their organizations.
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.

Igniting Enduring Cultures of Earthquake Preparedness Through:
Presentations and Seminars
A company’s emergency management, business continuity, and facilities teams aim to protect the heart of the enterprise – namely the lives and livelihoods of its people. To meet this aim, all staff – from the CEO to the production floor – must become active members in the company’s preparedness culture. Tipping Point Resilience aims to persuade the most reluctant among us to become preparedness practitioners and activists. With a combination of stunning visuals, appealing science, humor and the power of his personal experience, TPR’s Corporate Resilience Director Steve Eberlein will create an enduring conversation in your workplace.
Tipping Point Resilience will provide your staff with trusted, easy-to-follow, step-by-step resources that will inform their preparedness actions whenever they are ready to take them. We will also remain available to your staff for their household preparedness questions long after the presentation has wrapped up. Our goal is to take your people to the finish line by removing the obstacles and providing the resources that will enable them to make a sustainable change to their level of preparedness.
While Tipping Point Resilience does not itself sell a preparedness product, we partner with reliable and reputable companies in the preparedness industry
to bring your staff the deepest discounts that can be found on the products that they need to prepare.
