“Thanks compa Eddie García for being such an inspiration. I invite my Latino/a friends to follow Eddie’s Leadership Series.” ~Juanita Navarro Medina

“I first met Eddie in his role as the Chief of Staff to a County Supervisor in Santa Clara County. I was at the very early stages of investigating a potential run for a local political office. I was a San José born, raised and educated Latino male, and I had little knowledge about local politics and even less supporters who believed I could be successful. Eddie was one of the first people who believed in me and he became an integral part in my early development. I ended up taking part in a leadership program that Eddie led. He was an excellent facilitator and he not only taught great lessons but he made then fun and easy to comprehend. I didn’t just learn from his experiences but I also gained even more confidence in myself. I ultimately went on to win an election where I was heavily doubted to even make a run off and today I represent over 100,000 residents in one of the fastest growing urban centers in the United States.” ~Honorable Raul Peralez, Councilmember, District 3, City of San José

“Eddie’s wealth of knowledge, derived from experience in leadership in both the public and private sector, allows him to provide real world examples which help one find the right approach for a solution to the issue at hand.  Eddie’s passion for leadership development in the Latino community is clear.  Having worked with him to put together the Silicon Valley’s premier Latino leadership development program, I’ve witness Eddie’s successful work over half a decade with mid-career professionals from throughout Silicon Valley and beyond. I appreciate Eddies counsel and his support, as do many others.  We regularly hear from graduates of the LLA Academy who share stories of how they used the tools that they received from Eddie, to advance to the next level in their career or take on a civic leadership role.” ~Honorable Andrés Quintero, Trustee, Alum Rock Union School District Board of Trustees
