Speaking

“Eric brings to the table a wealth of knowledge and experience. His ‘golden voice’ commands attention to all listening, but his content is core to the appeal of convincing life change. Always enjoyable in style and personality, Eric can captivate and motivate an audience through story and challenge.”  Andy Sonsky – Worship Pastor Just Church

Want to Hear Me Speak?
Thanks for visiting my speaking page.  Here you will find out more about me, my speaking topics, and what to expect from me at your event.

As a consultant, pastor, and business manager, I understand the challenge of finding the right speaker for an event, bringing the correct topic, and the importance of engaging the audience.  The success of any event can easily hinge on the quality of the speaker.

This is why I do not take speaking for granted.  As an experienced speaker, I am keenly aware of the need to engage with the audience, equip them with practical takeaways, and provide a different perspective on living life to its fullest.

I hope this page helps you make the big decision ahead of you.  I appreciate you taking the time to consider me for your next event.

Eric consistently communicates in an authentic manner, full of passion and purpose. His messages are inviting, challenging, and meaningful and have encouraged me to action. My own personal growth would not have been possible without the impactful messages he has delivered.”  Stephanie Brink – Assistant Principal, South Ridge Elementary

A little more about me
As a business leader, pastor, blogger, and speaker, I believe we all have the potential to change our own paths to find our specific purpose.  My passion is to guide people to live a better adventure in their own lives.

After consulting many years for business development and process change, pastoring a church and starting non-profits, I understand the many challenges people face on a daily basis.  I have been encouraged by the transformations people have made in their own lives to find their purpose and make better choices  through an intentional change in their lives.  I challenge people to make their lives matter and make a positive impact in this world.

I have over 20 years of public speaking experience in a variety of settings from corporations, military, churches, education and youth.  Although the settings are diverse the topic is still the same, how do we live a more meaningful and life-changing adventure.

“Eric has the ability to draw you in, to the extent that you forget there is anyone else in the room. It’s just a nice dialog between two friends.”  Jason Fields – Executive Vice President, COO FCG
