John C. Maxwell Certified Speaker,Trainer & Coach | Pastor
Vincent “Mr. Speaker” Edwards was a college dropout, diagnosed with cancer and faced dealing with the mental and physical anguish of serving in the Army during the Gulf War. But, Edwards was determined not to fall victim to his circumstances. He decided that no matter what he faced in life he would make every effort to rise above mediocrity and realize the magnificent purpose he was destined to fulfill.
For Edwards, this vow was inspired by watching his mother endure many trials and tribulations as a child. No matter how hard life got, she never gave up; no matter how frequent the tears, she never quit.
The tenacity of his mother, along with motivation from people he met along the way, encouraged Edwards to return to college, receive a degree in management and become the CEO and founder of Blessed Enterprise. It gave him the faith to fight cancer and the will power to heal from the distress many veterans face after returning home from war. Most of all, it gave him the inclination to share his journey with others, motivating them to overcome their personal obstacles and become purpose driven. As a result, “Mr. Speaker” was born.
For the last 18 years “Mr. Speaker” has impacted thousands of students, professionals and members of the general public with such motivational topics as “Purpose, Plan & Performance,” “Out In Front,” and “Good Success.” Overcoming procrastination, making wise decisions, conquering fear, succeeding in business, and self-confidence are just a sample of the subjects “Mr. Speaker” covers during his presentations.
From athletic teams and promising student leaders to department store employees, faith based organizations and state and local government employees, “Mr. Speaker” has been called upon for his personal and interactive approach, as well as his ability to take his own life experiences and catapult them into stepping stones toward success for his audiences.
