Gerald’s life story is inspirational and motivating on so many levels. I’ve booked him multiple times and he always exceeds expectations. His story of resilience and overcoming adversity moves listeners to a better place in their own lives. And the listeners are not easily impressed, often quite cynical. But he is utterly disarming as these CEOS, Ambassadors, Senators, journalists and thought leaders are enthralled by his authenticity, intelligence and perspective. The conversations which flow from a Gerald presentation go deep to the core of our humanity.Ambassador J. Douglas Holladay
