Eric's Story

Eric is no stranger to the obstacles and challenges that face the youth and corporate worlds. Abandoned as a baby and raised by his adoptive parents on the tough streets of South Central Los Angeles, he was told by the medical world that he would never have a sporting career, or expect much out of life, due to damage in his joints.
But Eric had other plans. He defied physical and emotional pain to not only graduate from high school, but also attended Boise State University playing Division One Basketball, and then spent 14 years playing professional basketball in Australia with the Hobart Devils, the Melbourne Tigers, the Gippsland Lakers, and the Gold Coast Rollers.
In 1996, after retiring from professional basketball, Eric started his professional speaking and coaching business, bringing his message of hope, passion, and awesomeness to corporations, schools, professional organizations, and youth groups in the Asia-Pacific region.

- Fundraising and Public Relations Manager, Zoe's Place

Eric had a vision that was perfectly aligned to what we experience each and every day. WOW! His ability to engage his audience was infectious and powerful beyond my expectations. I saw grown men cry when Eric relayed his very personal story of birth and setbacks. What makes Eric so unique and effective? He is real! He researched our industry thoroughly and interpreted it brilliantly. His balance of wit, humour and pathos left our team wanting more.

He worked with us and gave so much of himself that each staff member and executive leader walked away feeling positive and touched that this man could share such personal reflection in such a motivational way. Even our most negative staff member turned the corner. That says something about the skills, tools, and ability of this man to effect change from the bottom up!

I don’t think that I have ever seen an auditorium of 500 delegates so moved and I have attended over 20 years of corporate conferences. The audience was on their feet, some people with tears in their eyes at the conclusion of Eric’s dynamic and moving presentation.
