Known as “Coach Verdu” to thousands of young people across the U.S.; he is a charismatic and energetic speaker, author, singer, and has a knack for engaging his audience with a wide range of methods of presentation including comedy, dramatic storytelling, engaging videos,  and occasionally- a little sleight of hand. His unique style is both inspirational and profoundly insightful, and his message of Anti-Bullying and Character Development leaves a lasting impression upon audiences of all ages and backgrounds.
