Without reservation I highly recommend Eric Nitzberg.  He brings a caliber of skill and expertise essential to working with our MBAs as well as the more seasoned corporate and nonprofit executives in our Sloan program. Whether coaching students or leading workshops, Eric’s been able to weave his passion for helping people communicate more effectively with our students’ expectations for a rigorous and relevant learning experience. We’re pleased to have him as part of our team.

Eric came to me highly recommended by a colleague I have known and trusted for years.  I was working on an important presentation that could potentially lead to millions of dollars in new business.  What impressed me most about Eric was not only his skill in helping me craft and deliver my message, but also his ability to quickly grasp the broader business and strategic issues implicit in the project.  I have no question that my presentation improved greatly as a result of our work together.

The most valuable thing I gained through my work with Eric over the course of a year, in addition to the skills and techniques he brought to the table, was a far deeper insight and awareness into what I care most passionately about. As he helped me see that more clearly, and see how this connected to my history, I found a much stronger platform for my leadership and communication. I became more focused and impactful. Eric brings a keen, uniquely insightful mind and had the depth of experience to help me become much closer to the confident, convincing leader I strive to be. I highly recommend Eric Nitzberg for anyone seeking similar results.

Amit Dayal, VP, Yahoo

A Senior Director responsible for one of our Departments within a major Division, needed to improve her overall executive presence and her presentation skills.  We engaged Eric to help her understand and embrace these behavioral changes, and we were very satisfied with the results his coaching helped us obtain. Eric is a true professional.  He is extremely easy to communicate and collaborate with, an incredibly quick study, and adept at helping people achieve behavioral change.  I have worked with many coaches during my career as an HR executive, and am able to say with total confidence that Eric ranks at the top of his profession in his abilities, commitment and character.  I would not hesitate to consider Eric for future assignments here, or to recommend him to any of my colleagues.

In today’s climate, especially in the fluid and ever-changing world of technology, it’s all about speed and execution.  My tendency was always to be in motion, always driving to completion. But my manager, colleagues and staff wanted me to listen more and take more time to see the larger strategic picture.  Working with Eric helped me learn how I could achieve this through ongoing mentorship and listening strategies and become a more balanced, effective leader.  What was great too was that we engaged with my ecosystem in the process to get a full view of change and success.

Sr. Manager, Cisco

Eric gets top marks as a facilitator.  He worked with one of our key leadership teams following a tricky reorganization.  The impact was a big shift in the team’s cohesiveness, optimism, and ability to move forward.  Team members felt very supported, and the team leader especially appreciated Eric’s warm, effective presence and his insight into our organization’s unique needs.  I would hire Eric again.

Barb McGaughey, President / CEO, Central Coast YMCA

Our team worked with Eric Nitzberg as we prepared to present our company’s vision and story to venture capital firms.  The result was that we had a much better presentation.  He gave us specific coaching tips, tools, and a process that we walked through including video taping and feedback.  The structure helped give us deadlines to keep us on-track with our timetable, and the coaching even helped improve our team dynamics.

Peter Frykman, CEO, Driptech

When I lived in China I was a University lecturer.  At that time, I felt very confident in my ability to present to an audience.  But after I came to America, it became more difficult.  Presenting in English is very different from speaking in my mother tongue.  Eric is an expert in communication, but the biggest result was he helped me regain some of my old confidence.  Because he speaks Mandarin so well, I felt very comfortable working with him in either language, and in the end my first ‘big presentation’ in front of our VP was a success.

Eric is a gem.  In 15 years of consulting I have worked with many different trainers and coaches, and Eric is a standout.  Our clients give him excellent ratings.  He is smart, skilled, and incredibly easy to work with.

Judy Knight, the Oxford Group

Eric is a spectacular coach. An experienced public speaker himself, he brings a wealth of technique and pragmatic tips to his practice. His coaching helped me more effectively connect deeply with my audience, motivate and compel to action. Eric is gifted at helping his speakers get to the heart of the matter – and to touch the hearts of others.

Eric’s class was one of the top 10 lectures I’ve attended at Stanford so far… If you have the opportunity to work with him, don’t miss out.
