5 minutes to read

If you’ve ever played a motivational speaker compilation online, you’ve heard this name before. The Crisp team is thrilled to share that we’ll be welcoming one of the top motivational speakers in the world to the EVOLVE Virtual Summit on June 24-25, 2021.

Meet Eric Thomas, PhD — critically acclaimed author, world-renowned speaker, educator, pastor, and Audie Awards Finalist. Better known as ET the Hip Hop Preacher, Eric has also become the go-to motivational speaker for the NBA. Talk about professional-level conviction.

ET has taken the world by storm with his creative, common-sense approach to living a successful, satisfying professional and personal life.

“When you want to succeed as bad as you want to breathe, then you’ll be successful.”

We’re bringing ET to the virtual stage at the EVOLVE Summit because we know that owning a law firm is hard work. It can be exhausting. But there’s nothing like a dose of hearty motivation to light a fire in your soul and get you on the right track.

There’s nobody better at lighting that fire than Eric Thomas.


Who is Eric Thomas?

“ET is just a ball of light,” Cleveland Cavaliers center Andre Drummond told ESPN. “His energy, his inspiration, the way he views life and the way he can inspire so many people just by his words is huge. Sometimes I listen to his stuff whenever I’m feeling off or I need a certain message.”

As CEO of his consulting firm, ETA LLC., Eric has led his team through the doors of dozens of hugely successful organizations and Fortune 500 companies. He has risen to the top of his profession despite coming from very humble beginnings.

ET was born in Chicago to a teenage mother but was raised primarily in Detroit. He became a homeless high school dropout. His biological father wasn’t in his life until ET was 30. But he’s done more than just turn his own life around — he’s now in the business of helping others turn their own lives around.

His incredible story doesn’t end there. After spending 12 years working toward a bachelor’s degree, Eric went on to earn his master’s and doctorate from Michigan State University. His big break came in 2008 after a speech he gave to students at Michigan State, where he was working as an academic adviser. It was posted to YouTube, where it racked up more than 2 million views.

Now, nearly every video he posts to YouTube generates millions of views for their motivational content and his authoritative, passionate attitude that shines through in everything he says.


What Eric Thomas Will Bring to the EVOLVE Summit

Eric Thomas does not make excuses, and he’ll empower you to do the same.

He won’t sugarcoat it.

He’ll give you the real, hard truth — and he’ll ask you: do you really want this?
