Our people were completely engaged from beginning to end with your timely message and your humble enthusiasm. We could not have been more pleased with your presentation. The content was right on target while providing the perfect combination of education and inspiration." Executive VP, Alaska Airlines
"We seldom have a keynote speaker that leaves our members and conference delegates talking about the power of the presentation weeks and months after the event. But your message on "Leading in a New Reality" managed to achieve that result, despite the loss of your support materials prior to your presentation. That was indeed the sign of a true professional. What the delegates didn't know is that you delivered a very memorable and highly effective presentation without the benefit of having your power point slides... You received an approval rating of 97% which is the highest rating of any speaker that we have engaged in the past decade!!! Thank you, Eric, for making an incredible contribution to the success of our event and to leaving our delegates with a leadership message that will persist for the rest of their life." Executive Director, Canadian Golf Superintendents Association
