Top Speaking Topics

The Sustainability of Sustainability

As human kind attempts to push towards a sustainable lifestyle, our enthusiasm risks making the entire sustainability movement not sustainable. In this Keynote presentation, the ideas driving the sustainability movement are examined as well as the potential traps that can stop the movement cold. In addition, the various motivators to propel change are discussed. This keynote involves elements of humour, inspiration and personal self discovery and is suitable for government and corporate strategic planning conferences or events.

Fighting Climate Change – The Battle for Hearts and Minds 

The issue of Climate Change has evolved to where it is no longer a fight over conflicting science, but rather one that is fought through the manipulation, or spin doctoring of information. With the ultimate prize being the hearts, minds and dedication of the general public, this Keynote examines the history of using doubt as a weapon as well as how doubt can be both fought and defeated. This is an inspirational and motivating talk perfect for conferences and large events.  The content in this Keynote was featured at TEDx UOIT in January, 2011.

Understanding and Utilizing the Media to Deliver Your Message

The media is an extremely powerful vehicle to deliver a company, or organizational message.  However implementing the right approach can often be difficult and without a full understanding of media properties themselves, nor which is the most appropriate platform to utilize, the effectiveness of any media campaign can be limited.  Eric will discuss some of the methods he has used and has taught others to use in this interactive and informative presentation.  He will also educate attendees on how to create strategies that work effectively with each aspect of the media.
