A highly-sought-after speaker, Smith has had the opportunity to speak to faculty and students at The New England Institute of Art; Middle Tennessee State University (MTSU); Nashville’s Belmont University, International Academy of Design and Technology, The Art Institute of Tennessee-Nashville, SAE and Dark Horse Institute; and others, with more such engagements planned indefinitely. Smith, throughout his career, has been a strong advocate of education, and he has guest-lectured at high schools and colleges throughout the country on the subjects of acoustics, broadcasting, entrepreneurship and business ethics. Smith brings a wealth of personal experience, technical knowledge and a sense of humor to all of his presentations, which focus on basic acoustic theories, sound control issues and solutions, product design strategies, the challenges of a start-up company and what it takes to be successful in business. During his recent travels, Smith was also the featured guest on the online webcast, The East West AUDIO Body Shop, hosted by studio designer George Whittam and voice talent/studio consultant Dan Lenard. Smith fielded numerous questions involving studio acoustic design and sound control issues, and the initial webcast was streamed by visitors from around the world and then downloaded or streamed by thousands more online. In addition to this interview, Smith has participated in streaming interviews with a number of schools around the country, most recently with a marketing class at Middle Tennessee State University. Smith was also a featured panelist at the recent PotLuckCon 2012 Audio Conference. Eric participated in a panel discussion along with studio designers/acousticians Chris Pelonis, Wes Lachot, Carl Tatz and Larry Swist. The topic of the well-attended panel discussion was “Studio Acoustics: Design and Monitoring,” and the panel was moderated by engineer/producer and pro audio journalist Russ Long. David Fischer, Auralex CEO, stated, “Everyone at Auralex is very proud that Eric Smith is able to impart his extensive knowledge and expertise to the wider audio community. Public speaking is really a strong suit of his, and he very much enjoys the opportunity to speak to students – the producers, engineers and studio designers of the future – and share his real-world experiences as a way of giving back to the industry that has given him so much.” “This series of events has been very fruitful,” stated Eric Smith. “I love getting the opportunity to promote good sound and good listening environments to current and future engineers and members of the audio community. When I see tomorrow’s audio professionals asking great questions and paying close attention, I know that the industry is in great hands. I am lucky that I can make an impact on these minds in the process, and I look forward to participating at more of these events in the near future.” For more information, please visit
