Full Bio

For the past two decades, Eric Kidwell has worked hand-in-hand with organizations to help them achieve service excellence. He’s a passionate storyteller with a gift for aligning every member of the care team ~ both medical and non-medical personnel ~ toward the same shared goal of creating cultures that support world-class patient experiences.

His approach is simple: Your organization’s culture isn’t just what you and your employees do … ?It has to become who you are as a family of caregivers.

Eric is authentic, versatile and at-ease in front of every audience. His impressive presentation skills were sharpened in his years as an entertainer, coach, trainer, and broadcaster. And while people love his presentations, they also genuinely like Eric as a person. His keen ability to relate to and interact with every level of the care team lends credibility to his effectiveness as a coach, speaker and facilitator.

He won the prestigious “Champion of Caring Award” for his groundbreaking work completely overhauling the training and new employee orientation for more than 10,000 staff and 400+ clinical providers at Riverside Health System in Virginia. This includes employees at five acute care hospitals, a Rehabilitation Hospital, a Behavioral Health Center, a Medical Education hub for Family Practice and OB/GYN residency programs, and the Riverside School of Health Careers.

In his free time, Eric is a soccer coach and devoted dad. He graduated from James Madison University and currently lives in Orlando, FL with his wife and four children.
