Public Speaking and Leadership Training


Edward Perdue is not only a trial attorney, but also a historian, former Marine officer and disabled veteran of the Persian Gulf War. Many years ago, he recognized that because few people in our society train in the art of leading men and women to achieve common goals, and because the art of war, and the tactical and strategic principles employed to win in a combat environment, are largely unfamiliar to professionals in today’s workplace, there is a unique service that he can provide to law firms and other employers.

Both businesspeople and legal practitioners benefit from Ed’s approach to leading civilian teams and winning professional contests.  Ed presents a wide range of military concepts and techniques, provides historical and personal examples to illuminate their understanding, and leads discussions of how people can apply them in their professional lives. The concepts and principles Ed covers include:
  • The leadership traits that you can reinforce and expect from your team members
  • The leadership principles which you can use to develop your own leadership style and lead teams effectively
  • The principles of war such as mass, offensive and surprise which can be used to fight and win your professional battles
  • Specific mission planning and execution techniques that you can adopt to your own needs
  • Managing Stress and the Work/Life Balance
  • Group Leadership Dynamics

Edward Perdue is the author of "The Little Green Book – A Leadership Manual for Professionals", published in 2020 (soon to be available here).
