Ed Parrish serves as a Director for SERVE2PERFORM. Ed’s Division I college football experience brings a unique perspective to the SERVE2PERFORM team by almost emulating the executive world as a playing field. Ed carries over thirty years of Human Resources experience with him to walk through Business Development with our current clients. He not only enjoys working with Fortune-500 companies to help them develop a better work environment, but he also enjoys working with Nonprofits to help them maximize their profitability in order for them to be able to give back in an even bigger way.
Ed’s witty personality and candor make any learning situation fun and engaging. His ability to bring in his first-hand experiences from his many Director positions enables him to be a great coach and facilitator for our team. Ed resides in Northwest Arkansas and enjoys spending time with family and volunteering his time to many different causes to make Northwest Arkansas a better place.
Ed is genuinely one of the nicest and inviting people I have ever met. His ability to speak to over thirty years of corporate experience is amazing and also helps him connect with individuals in a different way. I haven’t been able to step into the community in the last six months and have not seen Ed volunteering his time and efforts to whatever organization needs his insight.

This program is designed to provide participants with a 360 degree view of their own Unconscious Biases as well as how to support an inclusive culture for their team and organization. Participants will receive individual or group coaching sessions, a group or team-based roundtable session, and ultimately walk away with an individual customized action plan based on their discovery.
Inclusion and Engagement Coaching
Includes pre-work. Participants will be asked to complete 3 surveys on Age, Gender, and Race using a widely distributed Harvard tool that is the industry standard for assessing unconscious bias.
