Becoming a Person of Influence

“Our members appreciated Ed’s refreshing approach to Human Resources, their roles, and responsibilities. He is a positive, funny and upbeat speaker who can inspire an audience into action.

Michele Carfello

Director of Member Relations, Texas Bankers Association

“I have had the pleasure of working with Ed Krow for several years as a contract conference planner and executive director for several SHRM affiliates across the country. Ed’s level of educational sessions are of large appeal to strategic HR professionals in senior leadership roles. His mix of humor, experience and leadership are invaluable when delivering these educational sessions. Most recently he delivered a three-part virtual Strategic HR Series for Illinois SHRM which was one of our best strategic events to date. Ed is knowledgeable, knows his audience, is easy to work, is adaptable, and responds well to deadlines from a planner perspective. I very much enjoy working with Ed, and look forward to many more opportunities in the future.

Lori Maher McCombs

Conference Planner & Association Executive, Maher Group, LLC

“I highly recommend Ed to any meeting planner, organization, or event seeking an engaging, highly professional, and informative leadership development speaker. Ed was one of our speakers for our Annual Conference that pivoted to virtual in a matter of weeks during the COVID-19 pandemic. Ed was one of the easiest speakers to work with during this major pivot, quickly pivoting his own presentation to suit the virtual format. Ed delivered the presentation as flawlessly and energetically as if he were in a room full of attendees, which made for a great experience for our attendees and resulted in Ed being one of our most highly-rated speakers.

Alyssa Gibson

Director of Education, American Alliance of Orthopedic Executives

“Ed presented at our conference this year, and we actually maxed out in the original room and had to double the capacity. People couldn’t get enough of his work. His presentation and style were so engaging and people loved him. Our people are really tough on speakers and Ed got incredibly positive comments. He’s a great guy and we hope to have him again!

Sarah Eyster

MSW Director, Mental Health Division, Eastern Regional Rep

“Our management leadership training wasn’t exciting or engaging enough to get our managers to take the message out of the training with them. Ed came in, understand our needs, UTZ-ified the message, and most importantly delivered it in a way that made people listen and care. He is a seasoned professional who delivered his message with a mix of realism and humor, and it made me look like a rockstar when I brought him on. Managers listened to him, believed him, and most importantly he was able to make them leave with the content and the exact message we wanted to send.
