From the Smarty Education Corner: Learn how to bring CEO success to students at the Oct. 26 Fletcher Forum!

You’re invited to attend (free of charge) The Fletcher Community Forum on October 26 to hear an engaging presentation from award winning CEO in the public and private sector, Neil Peterson!

Throughout his career, Neil learned the value of an Executive Coach in helping him achieve success. In 2005, he created the Edge Foundation with the goal of providing the same benefits to students that CEOs 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 businessmen do.

Since its inception, Edge has expanded to provide Edge Coaching in 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. For example, coaching has led to rising GPAs and has 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.

Date: Thursday, October 26, 2017
Time: 7:00-8:30pm
Location: The Fletcher School Gymnasium, 8500 Sardis Road, Charlotte, NC 28270
Cost: Free of charge

After a successful career as the Seattle, Oakland, and Los Angeles METRO transportation leader and founder of the awardFletcherForumSpeaker winning car-sharing company, Flexcar, Neil Peterson retired and embarked on a new career. Taking lessons learned from his years as a CEO and as the father of two bright children with ADHD, Neil created the Edge Foundation to bring executive coaching to students. He believed that personal coaching, delivered by professionals trained to work with ADHD, could help students develop fully and gain an increased sense of purpose, happiness, and self-esteem. Neil Peterson and The Edge Foundation provide students and families with a crucial edge in their struggles with the challenges of ADHD.

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