  • It’s Our Profession: Investing in Yourself

“Jerry is professional, knowledgeable, creative, dependable, and fun to work with! The behind the scenes work of planning a workshop with him as presenter was seamless. During the workshop, Jerry engaged the audience with his sense of humor and expertise. He encouraged individual and group exchange of ideas and provided very practical tips to take away and act on. Attendees felt the workshop was well worth their time!”

“Jerry is an amazing presenter. He is flexible in tailoring presentations to the needs of his audience, energetic, thoughtful, and a great listener! He responds well to group interactions and can make everyone feel an important part of the dialogue. He is very well versed in volunteer management and administrative issues and is sensitive to the many subtleties that present themselves in our work so is very responsive to the variety of needs of professionals and volunteers. From the administrative perspective he is a wonderful colleague, timely, cooperative, willing to pitch in, and with a sincere desire to see an event succeed. His sense of humor, lively style and kindness make him a great choice for conducting workshops and conference sessions!”
