Terry R. Vergon
An internationally recognized speaker, Terry’s ability to stir an audience to change their perspectives about leadership is both inspiring and eye-opening. Most speakers talk about the tools of leadership, but Terry talks about where leadership comes from and how it is attainable. He doesn’t give you tools. He shows you the milestones that every leader encounters on their journey to becoming a leader.
Over the years, he has been asked to speak at national and regional conventions – either as a panelist or as a presenter – on topics ranging from mission critical facilities to leadership. His opportunities to speak on leadership topics often include training and organizational interventions around the culture in corporations and governmental agencies. His most recent events in 2014 and 2015 were held in San Francisco, Charleston, Dublin, and London.
Terry speaks to corporations, conventions, governmental agencies, and non-profits.

What is an organizational intervention?
Intervention – n. Interference so as to modify a process or situation.
An organizational intervention can be designed to help leadership effect cultural change within their own organization.
Essentially, an organizational development consultant works with leadership to create the environment and specific situations that support new values and priorities across the organization. With these new values and priorities in place, lasting behavioral change begins to take hold across the transformed culture.
