About Us

Jerry Conrad, MA, CSP, DTM

When it comes to public speaking and team training, there are two credentials that really matter: the Certified Speaking Professional designation from the National Speakers Association, and the Distinguished Toastmaster designation from Toastmasters International. In 1995, Jerry became the first person in NSA history to hold both of these distinctions.

Add these qualifications to a client list that includes the FBI National Training Academy, National Executive Institute Associates (top law enforcement officers from seven countries on three continents), Domino’s Pizza, Spectrum Health, PaineWebber, and Ford Motor Company and you will begin to have an idea of the skills Jerry brings to the table.

Jerry is the former president of the National Speakers Association of Michigan, and the CEO and founder of SG Maverick, based in Muskegon, Michigan. He has delivered over one thousand professional speeches and has carefully studied the methods of hundreds of other professional speakers and trainers.

Jerry credits his U.S. Army experience serving as a Sergeant in charge of a classified weapons squad for the 2nd Infantry Division as a key factor for his enduring can-do attitude, his unwavering integrity, and his strong self-discipline.
