Looking for the next great presentation?

If you or your organization needs to build resilience and thoughtful risk taking, then Gerry is the ideal speaker to get moving in that direction. I participated in a recent talk he delivered to NYC-SHRM, "How to Build Resilience" and found it thought-provoking and inspiring. In fact, he motivated this introvert to share a personal story in front of a large audience. His visual aids were helpful, not distracting, and he was always clear and persuasive. I especially enjoyed the group exercises, which served to break up the discussion, apply relevant concepts and help us build new relationships. Bravo! 

Brett Whysel, Founder   Decision Fish LLC

Gerry delivered an extremely well-received workshop on "Building Resilience" for NYC SHRM's Speaker Select Series. His presentation was very informative, using frameworks and personal examples, as well as small group interactive exercises and general discussions. Gerry is an experienced professional who has an amazing personal story of resilience and business success which are much more correlated than we would initially think. He sites examples of former US Presidents and other leaders. The discussion in the room got very deep and personal with participants feeling encouraged, taking away new perspectives and tools. I highly recommend Gerry as a speaker on this important topic. 

Jennifer White, PhD, Managing Director   White Wave Consultin

Gerry Valentine delivered the single most inspiring talk that we have ever had at Hudson Valley Tech Meetup. I've never had so many attendees stop and thank me for booking a particular speaker. After thinking about why his talk was so good and trying to understand the positive reaction that so many people had to Gerry I came to the conclusion that it's not just what Gerry talks about but how if feels to be with him - how he IS with you. Your brain will learn from Gerry's words but your heart is also going to love how it feels to learn from someone who cares. No doubt you can find a lot of professional speakers who can educate your group with their experience but when you get to work with Gerry Valentine the actual experience will go well beyond the intellectual and into the realm of social and emotional learning. This is just how Gerry is. If you are reading this, don't delay, meet him in person and book the first available date for him to speak with your group. I guarantee that he will be one of the most inspiring people that you've ever worked with.
