"Late one night I received a very well written and sincere invitation from Eric Schwartz to speak at HealthTech 2014. It was so inviting and everything was so clear in the invitation that I had all the information needed to make a decision quickly. So I accept immediately, sent him a response and went to sleep. Next morning when I woke up and checked my email, I saw Eric had already given me the keynote speaker spot and had put up an amazing description on the conference website.
Everything at the conference was top notch - the quality of the scholarly speakers, the research they presented, the friendly atmosphere, no sales or marketing presentations from any vendor, excellent hot lunch buffet, name tags made of top quality material, and lots of opportunities to network with people. Eric is an outstanding host. I have spoken at many conferences and have experienced many organizers -- Eric is by far the best of the best. He even attended every session and had interesting scholarly questions for each presenter. He also offered to pick up the tab for the hotel parking.
Finally he presented every speaker with a lovely Certificate of Appreciation -- a touch of class indeed! Thanks Eric for everything you did to make the conference enjoyable for everyone."

"I got to know Eric, Executive Director of Advena World, as the event planner of the 2014 International Conference on Entrepreneurship and Economic Development. I was a speaker at the conference and my staff found Eric professional, likeable, enthusiastic and realistic in his expectations.
I have worked with many public relation professionals over the past several years, and Eric not only demonstrated initiative, intelligence and creativity, but also his dedication to his speakers.
While his event suffered greatly because of the many winter storms of 2014, he put on a good event and I look forward to working with him again"

"I had the distinct pleasure of meeting Eric at the Strategic Business Management and Economic Research 2014 Conference in Washington DC. as an Honorary Speaker at his Advena World event.. I found Eric to be passionate and compassionate about his work and had the incredible ability to seem always, available.
He brought together a fine mix of speakers from around the globe to present, the audience was treated to some of the greatest minds assembled in one place to speak.
Putting together an event of this type is not an easy undertaking yet Eric seems to take it in stride. The planning, the communication, the venue and the delivery, ALL EXCELLENT.
I was amazed how on top of his game Eric is, it seemed that as soon as I hit send with a question, I received an answer in return. Within minutes of me accepting the engagement, and forwarding my bio and head-shot, he had the update done on the conference page within moments and sent back for my approval.
I hope to be included in future conferences he puts together, it is truly a wonderful experience both as a presenter and as an active listener and learner when it wasn't "My turn at the Lectern". If you get a chance to attend any of the Conferences Eris puts together, May I strongly recommend you attend.
All my best, in truth"

Eric implemented public relations strategies of Coca-Cola Export Corporation in Morocco and Algeria.
He demonstrated a higher level of expertise and most of all Eric was knowledgeable about our strategy in North Africa; helped us improve our corporate image and consumers’ attitudes towards our brands.
Additionally, Eric helped us promote new products through a variety of media channels, wrote and adapted numerous press releases, and organized press conferences, interviews executives, covered on-site promotional events, and so on.
I have seen his talents and abilities not only in our business partnership but also in the business community, when interacting with media professionals, corporate executives, and policy makers, as well.
