“No one knows America’s youth better than Ed Gerety. He is an amazing leadership trainer for high school and college students and the consummate keynote speaker who must be experienced to be appreciated. He’s also tremendous in front of adults. I’ve known Ed for 15 years and he is every bit as good of a guy off stage as he is on stage. To know Ed is to love him. He’s a devoted husband to a charming wife, an amazing father, and a great friend.”
