“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.”
