“I attended a two day workshop on Scenario Planning that was presented by Eric. The topic was interesting to me due to my project and risk management experience. I enjoyed and learned from numerous good examples that Eric mentioned from his experience with large companies. Eric's experience with European companies in scenario planning is invaluable and brings a wealth of out of box thinking, a new methodology on looking at scenario planning and blends the historical and hard lessons learned by large companies into North American customers. I recommend Eric's consultancy to those who believe in looking at all possible scenarios, not only the good ones and those companies who dare to look at the string of events in each scenario. One of eye opening new methodology in Eric's workshop was looking at events in each scenario from end to starting point that allows to navigate through many possibilities and find major events in each scenario. Eric's enthusiasm for out of the box thinking and an innovative mindset in scenario planning, allows companies and its clients to stay in tune and in control in the rapidly changing environment of our world.”

“The workshop on "Scenario Planning" truly exceeded my expectations. Eric is a bona fide subject matter expert and he was able to open the group's eyes to the benefits obtained from rigorous analysis. The slides are gorgeous and his examples and analogies are pertinent and timely. He is a very engaging speaker and he has the international business experience to back up his methods. I can honestly say that I value his training session a lot more than my MBA courses in strategy (which were overly academic). Definite value for your money.”
