Eric Smith, Founder and President of Auralex® Acoustics, Inc., the world’s  leading brand of acoustical treatments and currently celebrating its  35th anniversary, has had a busy travel itinerary lately, as he has been  a featured guest lecturer at a number of colleges and universities  across the country. 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.”
