"Eric is a remarkable thinker, and one of those speakers you see sometimes, but not often enough, who you run around telling everyone about for a long time afterwards. I remember the first time we met, and within a few minutes he had me leaning over the table in the restaurant, fascinated, waiting to hear what would come out of his mouth next. I can count on one hand the number of times that has happened to me; he's in very rare company. So book him. Listen to him. Take the time to use his ideas. They are a gift."

-David Allison, Branding Expert

"Eric was great. The attendees that I talked to gave him rave reviews." –

Event Manager - Global Exhibitions, Informa Canada


"What stood out to me about Eric’s keynote was how relatable he was to the entire audience. I feel as though whether you were a graduating student, new grad or a Gen X Mom like me, there was something in his talk for everyone. The concept of defining your own success is very inspirational and Eric was as open to talking about his shortfalls and sacrifices as he was to talking about his “big wins.” I have seen Eric speak at three different events now and he is very astute when it comes to his audience. Each of the speaking engagements has showcased something different, which tells me that he puts a lot of time and energy into meeting his host/client’s needs for the event. I would definitely have him back."

Manager, Career Services, University of Calgary


"Eric’s keynote was very much delivered from a place of personal narrative, and he was incredibly relatable to the students at the University of Calgary’s Grad Day Conference. In Eric, our students were able to see someone starting out in his career, but through his own path of pairing a passion of entrepreneurship and Generation Y into impactful work with an empowering message."
