“I’ve heard Eric speak three times already and I come back because he always has fresh information.” VA
"The class we had in Charlotte under your guidance was truly a delight, as I am sure many have commented. Fluor was kind enough to send me to many, many seminars, but yours had the most energy, enthusiasm and emotion of those I have attended. Amazing, isn't it, how those few words can apply to so much! I will remember those two classes above all others." SC
