Emmy award winning broadcaster and keynote speaker Ed Berliner shares his thoughts and commentary on issues of the day, and those that will make people truly think outside the box.

Knowledge vampires: Don’t let them suck you dry.

It's one of the clear and present professional dangers, whether you're someone seeking a position with a new employer, or a firm of any kind seeking to convince a potential client that you, and only you, are the right person for the job. Like how I weaved that Tom Clancy reference into the first line? [...]

Pittsburgh murders demand self-examination of faith

It came as a news crawl. Those often choppy sentences hastily written, and then streamed across the bottom of the broadcast screen. News we've seen far too often, and despite our own admonitions, we've become desensitized to. Until the words strike at our familiar soul. Something close to home. Something that forces us to dig [...]

Politics, DNA, and how to fail at Leadership & Teamwork

While Democrats tout their gains to be made come Election Day 2018, and the numbers show they have good reason to be more than a little giddy, they do so at their own arrogant peril. Three events recently prove why Dems need to get their heads out of the organizational muck, and understand a simple [...]

The generalization of all men condoning sexual assault must stop. Now.

At first, I thought it was an overreaction. Then, it happened to me. I can, therefore, no longer stay silent. There is a dangerous wave sweeping America at the moment. It's been building in strength for some time, and has finally washed ashore, seemingly taking it with it a common sense and ability to parse [...]

What will you do, when someone finds you?

What would you do, if a rabbit found you?   I've asked myself that question now for 2 years. Because in all the uproar, the fighting, the spit, the venom, the discourse, the losses and mind pounding stress of these last 2 years, I come to this day in the hope of answering that question [...]

Has the World Become too Distracted for Real Heroes?

Since I can remember, I have always been one who reads a little deeper into words and comments. I have always sought the true meaning behind speeches, offhand quips, novels, or just a short conversation between people at the bar. I have no idea where it came from. I wasn't raised in an environment [...]

Ageism: Making Experience & Desire Disposable

When we're young, all roads are open to us. We are, if lucky, encouraged to seek every avenue, try every gamble, become part of something. We are valued, and always considered to be full of possibilities.   When we're older, those roads are closed to us because of years. We are far too often discouraged [...]

No arms? No problem. Meet Kendrell Daniels.

Before digging too deep into this story, let's all admit we have, at one time or another, complained that things in life suck out loud and we deserve better. We have all felt as if there are forces against us, or failing to allow us to move ahead. My hand goes up first, so as [...]
