Organizational leaders who want to accelerate the development of emerging leaders call Eddie Turner, The Leadership Excelerator™. He’s been described as “The Consummate Friendly Professional” and has worked for several of the world's “most admired companies” such as Accenture, Apple, Dell, Deloitte, ExxonMobil and GE. He is passionate about working with leaders to “Accelerate Performance and Drive Impact!”™ through the power of coaching, facilitation and speaking. 


Eddie is a professional speaker and a national media commentator who holds international certifications as a trainer, facilitator and coach.
