Edward served as an Associate Vice President at California State University-Sacramento, Director of University Housing and Dining at Southern Illinois University-Carbondale and Vice Chair of a 100-million-dollar credit union in Southern Illinois. Through his 35-year professional career he learned how to create win-win work environments through trial and error. He was able to survive and thrive in office situations and wants to help others do the same. He discovered that the key to success in organizational settings is to focus on the mission or “end game”. Office politics is inevitable; some say a necessary evil. Edward believes it is necessary, but not necessarily evil. Edward has been sharing his wisdom with colleagues and the general public for years through speeches, presentations and workshops. Edward lives in Carmichael, California. He is married with three grown children and five grandchildren.
