Eric is one of the most genuine presenters and coaches I have encountered. Nothing seems forced and he’s not a “rah-rah” guy. Instead, what shines through is that he’s very passionate about his craft. This was one of the most authentic training experiences I have ever had the pleasure of attending.
You took on the task of getting to know your audience prior to meeting them so the day would be relevant to each of us. Even after a full day of training, your enthusiasm and energy level remained high, which kept us inspired. I would definitely recommend your training and coaching to businesses, large and small, that want to improve their performance.

This has helped me drive home my main points with the audience, so they leave my presentations remembering more of what I shared. I enjoyed the entire day. From the practical application of the skills to the healthy lunch menu, I can’t say enough about my first experience with a Rhapsody Accelerator.

Rhapsody can really teach you how to capture your audience’s attention quickly, and keep them engaged. My presentations have…
Eric is one of the most interesting, passionate, engaging, compelling, thoughtful and articulate speakers that I have ever heard. I would certainly recommend him for your next meeting or conference.
The most powerful part for the day was learning a simple and effective system for creating my presentations. I now have a road map to follow, which makes it easier and faster to put together an impactful talk. Eric has a way of creating a safe environment where even the most reluctant of presenters feels comfortable. I enjoyed being part of a group of people who had a wide range of speaking experience, from zero to 20+ years. The best part was being able to practice the skills throughout the day…
Our experience with Eric is that he totally over delivers as a keynote speaker. We invited Eric speak to business owners for the Orleans Health & Wellness Expo. He remarkably engaged and energized the audience with his brilliance, humour and captivating talk. We were very impressed with Eric’s professionalism and integrity and we highly recommend him as a dynamic and top quality speaker within the business world. –

Everything about the day was great – the space, the pace, the people in the class, the lunch and breaks. Really it was first rate. I am feeling confident in my ability to deliver a compelling presentation now!
