“Erik spoke to the Startup Champions Summit we hosted in Des Moines in October 2021. He a rockstar when it comes to being in front of a crowd while being authentic. His message and keynote about “being in the middle” hit home to both our audience and to me personally. It made me think, and of course, write notes down so I wouldn’t forget! 5 Stars would recommend him, and I look forward to working with him! Thanks, Erik.”
