About Leading Edge Seminars


Leading Edge Seminars Inc. was founded in 1993 by Michael Kerman, MSW, to provide training to Human Services professionals. The topics, speakers and presentation styles are on the “leading edge”, giving you an edge in your work with people. Whether you are a counsellor, therapist, manager, social worker, health care professional, or educator, you will find that there is something for you.

After a day at one of our workshops, you will have learned some new skills, gained a fresh perspective, and had an enjoyable time spent with leaders who know their stuff and know how to present. We guarantee that our workshops will deliver as promised.
