“I consider myself ridiculously fortunate to be able to connect with people like Jerod Ward. We recently collaborated for an episode of my podcast in which Jerod shared very intimate details of his journey, trials and triumphs in an authentic and transparent fashion that was refreshing and inspiring.
The lessons that Jerod has to share will be of great benefit to anyone willing to take the time to truly hear what he has to say. And for anyone looking to consider a speaker or coach to impart genuine and hard-earned words of wisdom to their group or organization, trust me, Jerod is the kind of person you’re looking for. His easy-going, warm, respectful and detail-oriented personality will make it easy for you to enjoy working with Jerod, just as I did.
I very much look forward to my next opportunity to collaborate with Jerod, and I recommend him enthusiastically. If you have the chance to work with Jerod Ward, grab it. You’ll be very glad you did!

“I have had the opportunity to know Jerod Ward for over two decades. During my association with Jerod Ward I have found him to be a young man with a great deal of passion and desire to be the best that he can be in pursuit of his goal and dreams. Jerod is a proud product of one of our great state Universities, University of Michigan, where he was an outstanding student/athlete. He is a man of his word and possesses outstanding values and has demonstrated a definite skill in inspiring and motivating people. Jerod would be a great asset to any group that would desire his talents in delivering a message on the game of life.”

“Jerod’s inspirational story about overcoming adversity, and the importance of grit and perseverance, made an impact on our students. I was certain that he would hit a homerun with our student Athletes, but was delighted to see students approach him after his presentation from all walks of life – from our special needs students, to our Performing arts students, and everyone in between!”
