OCTOBER 26, 2017, 7:00-8:30 pm

Register now for the 20th Annual Fletcher Forum, How Executive Coaches Bring CEO Success to Students, featuring Neil Peterson, Founder and CEO of the Edge Foundation.

As an award-winning CEO in the public and private sector, Neil Peterson learned the value of an Executive Coach in helping him achieve success.  When he created the Edge Foundation in 2005, his goal was to provide the same benefits to students that CEO's have been relying on for decades.  He reasoned that students, especially those who have learning, attention, and executive functioning challenges could excel with the support of an Executive Coach, just as professionals do.  Since its inception, Edge has expanded to provide Edge Coaching in the public, charter and private schools in the District of Columbia, California, New York, and Washington states. Specially trained Edge Coaches have helped students achieve outstanding results. Coaching has resulted in rising GPAs and helped students learn the skills needed to survive in school and to excel in life.  Neil will discuss how Edge Coaching works and the many ways that learning differences can be strengths for students, parents, entrepreneurs and others.

This workshop is free and open to the public.  Registration is required. REGISTER NOW!
