Erik Pages?!!! I’m absolutely a fan of Erik Pages! As far as I’m
concerned he is the best speaker/thinker/discusser of entrepreneurial development I have ever heard!

The programs, efforts and motives of my organization in working throughout our communities has direct ties to what I’ve learned and gleaned from Erik.”
