We were honored to have Jerald keynote at the 2021 Emergency Nurses Annual Meeting. Togetherness and perseverance are critical messages that were shared to uplift our nurses as they face unprecedented challenges in these unpredictable times. Through humility and deep reflection, Jerald presented a message that truly resonated with our nurses. Inspiring, encouraging, and profound were just a few words that our nurses used to describe his presentation.

We asked Jerald to speak at our first ever VIRTUAL Convention in 2020. The year was so insane for LTC providers trying to juggle the unprecedented impact of COVID-19, an extremely busy hurricane season, many federal and state guidance changes and expenses going UP and revenues going DOWN. Jerald was our Closing Keynote and you can’t imagine how SPOT ON his presentation was for our providers. His experience in long term care along with his charismatic and brilliant delivery kept our audience engaged, entertained and CONNECTED. Connection is what we needed during this season and Jerald delivered. He left our audience on our final day of conference, remembering WHY they chose this career and this journey.

“JCosey Speaks” is not just a company name. It is a message in itself. When Jerald speaks, he does so from the heart and head with the intent of conveying a message that can help others in their work and personal environments. He’s not about hype, he’s about making a difference. He speaks to empower others to “not make excuses, take action to overcome adversity, and guide their own accomplishments.

Jerald Cosey spoke to employees of long term care at our 2021 convention. At a time when nursing homes are facing tremendous blacklash because of the pandemic, his motivational message to recognize and honor healthcare professionals for their service and sacrifice hit the mark. He discussed life purpose, overcoming resident isolation through life stories, and using staff engagement as a way to improve quality outcomes. Every long term care professional should hear Cosey’s message. He speaks from experience as a long term care administrator and as someone who has dealt with these questions and challenges.
