Hockey legend Wayne Gretzky told the secret of his success:  “I skate to where the puck is going to be, not where it has been.”

“I have worked both with and alongside Jim Edwards for several years.  …He is a persuasive advocate without ever being pushy.  He is unfailingly polite, but he makes his points forcefully and persuasively.  He digs into the substance of even complex issues, and he understands his audience and has great instincts for how to be most effective in different circumstances.  … [H]e is a superb writer, a critical and yet unfortunately rare skill for advocates today.”  — Innovation Alliance
