Who we are
Hi – Eric and Eli here!
We started Speaker Labs in 2016 so that we could focus all of our time and effort around two of the things we value most: communication and teaching. We both began our careers as Faculty Members at the Ivey Business School where we were fortunate enough to lecture packed classrooms every day. It was during this time that we fell in love – not with each other (although we are best friends) – but with teaching. Helping others develop became a life passion for us.
After teaching, we took a few years to explore the world of tech start-ups (we are millennials after-all) and we saw how communication is pervasive, not only in the classroom, but in all areas of business. It was clear that expressing ideas confidently and clearly was a common challenge, and we gravitated towards helping others over that all-too-common hurdle.
Then, we took a leap. A leap that turned our passions into a company.
Enter Speaker Labs.

What others are saying
We brought Speaker Labs in to train the entire Loopio team in the winter of 2016. It was awesome witnessing the growth that the team experienced first hand (in addition to my own personal development). More recently, I engaged Eric and Eli to help me with a talk I was giving to 600+ people. When I finished the presentation, someone told me I should have finished with an emphatic ‘mic drop‘…enough said.
Jafar Owainati – Co-Founder & COO @ Loopio
Aside from flipping my presentation on its head and making it far more memorable, the Speaker Labs “think outside the box” process helped me unlock skills and potential I didn’t even know I had. I definitely recommend these guys and I’m confident they can take anyone to a whole new level.
Jesse Rubinoff – Associate Producer @ Rogers Sportsnet
Eric and Eli significantly enhanced my presentation as well as coached me on communication and public speaking. Their guidance was spot on and gave me the confidence I needed. Thanks to these two guys, the presentation was a success.
I highly recommend working with them.
Eric Schouten – Director, Partner Success @ Influitive
Our experience with Speaker Labs was absolutely incredible. The passion and excitement that Eric and Eli have for helping people improve their communication and presentation skills is genuine and infectious. I can’t recommend this program enough to anyone looking to level up their speaking game.
