Probes deep — not superficial

Eric drives a great conversation which dives deep and is looking for the unique and specific concept. Obvious that he prepares well.

Soren Friis Larsen ,

Founder, CEO

Always engaging and interesting. I highly recommend checking this podcast out. Both for its many inspiring guests, but also for the host's insightful questions, vast marketing experience, and keen eye for both the strategic and tactical challenges of marketing, sales, user experience, and revenue growth.
