History of Presidential Consultants

Presidential Consultants was founded in 2000 by CEO & Chief Training Officer Anthony President with the belief that there is no knowledge that is not power.  Anthony believed that if he could use the hard-earned lessons growing up in inner city Cleveland, Ohio, he could empower others to live better, fuller, happier lives.  Due to Mr. President’s drive, expertise and notoriety as a nationally sought-after speaker, industry expert and best-selling author in the social services arena, success came quickly to Presidential Consultants.  Originally launched as a boutique training and development company, Presidential Consultants served government, social service and educational institutions by providing highly interactive, evidence-based training for frontline workers, management and executives.


Within a few short years, after evidencing clear behavioral and cultural changes, receiving glowing reviews from staff and leadership and with documented results recorded by his clients, Presidential Consultants had become the # 1 human services training firm in the State of Ohio, earning several awards from state and local governments along the way. 


As the firm’s audiences and accolades grew, the offerings and training staff have also been expanded to meet the growing demand of corporate clients who seek integrated learning solutions that affect real change within their organizations.

Headquartered just outside of Cleveland, Ohio, Presidential Consultants supports corporate, government and nonprofit clients throughout the United States as well as in Canada, the United Kingdom and Australia.
