What Event Planners Are Saying

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 Region 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, understood 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.
