How Did Ed Become a Professional Speaker?
While in high school Ed Gerety was captain of his football and baseball teams, Vice President of his class, and a member of Student Council, S.A.D.D (Students Against destructive decisions), and F.B.L.A (Future Business Leaders of America). He was later inducted into his high school hall of fame. While attending the University of New Hampshire where he received his B.A. in communications Ed began to volunteer speaking at schools and youth leadership conferences. At 22 he established his own business dedicated to helping others develop as leaders and reach out and make a difference. Since that time he has shared his powerful message in all 50 states, Canada, and Europe. He is the author and co-author of five books on the topics of leadership, he has completed the Boston Marathon three times, and continues to do extensive study of personal development, leadership, and peak performance.
