Errol Bedford has demonstrated organizational leadership ability and success throughout his professional career. As a Who’s Who Among Students in American Universities & Colleges award recipient, Errol helped impact two complex societal issues to a successful resolution, thus initiating his reputation as a complex problem solver. Errol’s organizational skills continued to evolve after his distinguished college career by displaying an exceptional ability to build organizational systems and departments from the ground up. His comprehensive work creating systems and departments at United Business Institute Inc., Columbia University and Ventures Education Systems Inc., led to his decision to become a college professor and administrator.
His 14-year career as a professor and administrator at the College of New Rochelle in New York was highlighted by his recognition as the first college professor to develop an undergraduate course specifically designed to prepare undergraduate students for the rigors of graduate school studies. This professional honor fostered Errol’s decision to become a private consultant for government agencies, non-profit organizations, private corporations, and educational institutions. His distinguished list of clients includes:
- The United States Chamber of Commerce
- DynCorp International
- Huntleigh USA Corporation
- Public School 160 (The Disney School)

Now as President of Higher Learning Network Inc., Errol has taken on the challenge of building an education consulting corporation that provides quality education for the youth of this nation. Errol and his HLN Inc. partners are uniquely qualified and determined to change the landscape of the term “quality education”.
