What People Say About Eric's Keynotes

"Eric flew into Greece and left a wake of very happy audiences behind when he left. We had many colleagues from other Embassies across Europe who said they wished they could have had the whole day with him. That is how useful and enjoyable his presentation was." 

Jodi BreislerForeign Service Officer at the US Dept. of State

 

"While it is easy to discern through Eric's presentations that he is indeed an expert in this field, what is resoundingly refreshing is that he is also an exceptional public speaker. He is entertaining yet effective in 'leading us to water,' however, as the true professional he is, the ultimate conclusions are left to us to determine." 

Danny ChungChief of Staff, Microsoft

 

"Eric hosted a seminar for LIMA at our annual trade show as part of Licensing University (tm). It was by far the most highly-rated session. He was engaging, informative and provided case studies that are relevant to our industry. I highly recommend him as a conference speaker!" 

Jennifer ColemanSenior Vice President Marketing, International Licensing Show.

When scientific evidence challenges the world views of an affinity group, those opposed to taking regulatory or legislative – on the basis of their beliefs -- pose doubt, and those with higher science comprehension are increasingly divided in their beliefs. Based on research that equates the monetary value of the slave trade to the monetary value of the fossil fuel harvesting and processing industries, the precedent for ending our fossil feul dependance is abolitionism. Join Eric Schwartzman, who served as special climate change communications counselor to Secretary John Kerry at the US Dept. of State, for a revelatory discussion about science communications.
