Introductory workshop: This will be interactive, high impact, fun and engaging to get staff
involved and excited about learning,growing,developing and achieving more than ever

This session is about getting staff to make a decision about sitting on the bench...or being a
regular contributor and winning a CHAMPIONSHIP for the TEAM.
Aimed at increasing involvement and engagement from staff about how and why it is
important to raise their standards and work to a world class level. Not just for the organization but for themselves, their team, and more importantly their customers.
His presentation is engaging, as he reaches the students on their level, and uses humour, real life and serious messages together to create an atmosphere of serious fun… Personally, I believe Eric is one of those rare people who has the ability to grab people’s attention and make them listen to him.

Eric was a speaker at our recent AMP Financial Planners Association Conference and was highly regarded and respected as a speaker from our attendees. His talk inspired all to go for it and 'take the shot'. Over ninety five percent of our attendees rated Eric as either Exceptional or Very Good and all stated they would like to have him back to speak. Eric has a powerful message and is energetic in his style....I would have Eric back to speak at any of our future conferences.
