Robert Prosperi


The battlefield provides a context within which participants can look at each leadership concept, see how it applied during the Battle of Gettysburg, and recognize how it can be applied to their own lives. I have a thorough knowledge of the battle and a lot of experience working with leadership groups, so I’m able to help GLE participants gain important leadership insights based on the history of the battle.

With a passion for history, particularly the Battle of Gettysburg, Licensed Battlefield Guide Bob Prosperi brings deep historical insight about this critical moment in our nation’s history to the Gettysburg Leadership Experience (GLE). A licensed guide for the past 24 years, including working with numerous leadership development groups, Bob believes that the battlefield delivers a powerful experience to help business leaders gain a deeper understanding of the lessons taught through GLE.
