Eric prepared his first spokespeople during the summer of 1981 while conducting a media relations campaign to support two student theatre productions, Pal Joey and A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum. After arranging a series of interviews with journalists, he provided cast and crew with coaching.
