About the Author

Gerry Valentine inspires people to build resilience-to overcome setbacks, to look at challenges in new ways, and to turn adversity into a source of advantage. Gerry is a public speaker, executive coach, and business advisor with more than 25 years of experience as a Fortune 100 leader. As the founder of Vision Executive Coaching, he is a trusted advisor to corporate executives, business leaders, and entrepreneurs. Gerry specializes in teaching them how to use setbacks as a teacher; how to unlock creativity, imagination, and innovation; and how to use the best within oneself to inspire the very best in others. Gerry built a career with some of the world's most respected firms, including American Express and Pfizer, where he led multi-million-dollar lines of business. But this was an unlikely path. Gerry's early life was spent in poverty, as the child of a single mother in a low-income part of New York City. He went on to earn a BS in Engineering from Cornell University and an MBA from the New York University Stern School of Management. Along the way, Gerry found that the adversity of his youth helped him develop the resilience he needed to succeed in the corporate world and that building resilience is a skill he can teach others. Today, Gerry gives keynote talks and workshops across the country on building resilience, leading during difficult times, and finding strategic solutions to challenges. He is a TEDx speaker and a contributor to Gerry has also lectured on executive leadership at Columbia University, Baruch College, and Colorado State University. Gerry divides his time between New York City and New Paltz, New York, a picturesque town on the Hudson River Valley. He's an outdoor enthusiast who enjoys running, cycling, hiking, and skiing. Gerry has also completed eight Ironman Triathlons, five marathons, and many shorter-distance events.
