Testimonials 9

  • I thought your presentation on “Human Capital is Your Most Important Asset” was excellent and the audience was fully engaged for the duration of your session.  The post-conference survey certainly confirms this with many delegates choosing you as their favorite conference speaker.

    We have now completed a full year cycle with you (four events) and happy to confirm the investment has been well worth it and you have elevated the Business Transitions Forum brand nationally for Cube Business Media.

  • Eric is an absolute pro. He was tasked with closing our 4-day event. He was the 13th speaker, he followed 12 incredible presentations, not an enviable position to be in. Not only did he bring something from every other presentation into his program, but he also wrapped our entire event with a bow. He may have been the youngest presenters on our faculty but ended like a seasoned pro.

    Founder, EPIC Conference

  • Relevant, engaging and with some strong practical takeaways for the audience of seasoned Chief Executives of a range of companies from manufacturing to health care to technology to financial services.  He is an excellent presenter and readily relates to senior executives.

  • 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.

  • What stood out to me about Eric’s keynote was how relatable he was to the entire audience. I feel as though whether you were a graduating student, new grad or a Gen X Mom like me, there was something in his talk for everyone. The concept of defining your own success is very inspirational and Eric was as open to talking about his shortfalls and sacrifices as he was to talking about his “big wins.” I have seen Eric speak at three different events now and he is very astute when it comes to his audience. Each of the speaking engagements has showcased something different, which tells me that he puts a lot of time and energy into meeting his host/client’s needs for the event. I would definitely have him back.

  • Eric Termuende is a powerful and exciting speaker that truly understands the workforce and its true definition, today.  He tells us that what we may have thought was ‘coming’, is already here.  Through his research and fact based presentation, we start to see what it is going to take to attract, retain and motivate Gen-Y’s….and by the way, we will all love it!  I am onboard with promoting Eric and his team at Gen-Y.  This is true evolution for today and for our future.

    Catherine Brownlee Inc.

  • Eric led our attendees through an engaging discussion on Gen Y and their engagement with the workforce. People joined in the discussion with questions and comments, evidence that he reached and motivated them. His fresh perspective challenged our members to be aware of the needs of young talent, and helped them better answer the important question “What do Millennials want?” I endorse Eric as a speaker, and as a thought-leader.
