Guest Speaking


When is a product more than just an idea? And how do you balance priorities while making that idea a reality? Eric offers insights into these questions in his talks. He encourages new product developers at every level, whether the big ideas are happening in the board room, lab room, or living room. His most popular guest talks are on “3 Keys to Successful New Products®,” “Managing New Product Development Project Tradeoffs,” and “Creating a Product the Market Wants – Customer Discovery & Product Market Fit.”
