DIRECT, FUNNY AND CHALLENGES EVERY MORSEL OF YOUR BEING!
A strong background in teaching, leadership, and entrepreneurial skills allows Jerry Ackerman to present from a unique perspective to students across the nation.
This popular student speaker has been speaking professionally for over 10 years both nationally and internationally. His commitment to his audience’s growth is evident in his talks on leadership, attitude, communication, education, and change.
He dares each and every person in the room to take personal responsibility for their choices – and their success.
Jerry got hooked on speaking in 1995 while on his first job – instructing students at a school in Hawaii. He later tested the management waters as an assistant in a non-profit organization before taking the role of speaker and director of an international student association. In 2004 he stepped out on his own to launch and direct a speaking organization.
He has been interviewed on XM/Sirius radio, shared the stage with NFL stars, written several books, and continues to inspire and motivate others with practical, relevant, and humorous messages. In the year 2008 alone, he appeared before 100,000 students at school assemblies, student leadership groups, and for a sports-oriented organization.
Jerry is direct, funny and challenges every morsel of your being. No one better understands the importance of quick rapport with an audience – or knows more about what it takes to get it.
