“I attended the ATD-CIC Leadership Summit and had the good fortune to hear Ed speak and participate in his leadership workshop. I’ve attended many conferences over the course of my professional career, but this one really stood out due to the impassioned facilitator and the relevant content. It was an emotional and powerful journey that completely engaged the audience. I took many notes, and so many of Ed’s tenets continue to influence how I lead, motivate, and inspire my team each day.”
