His pioneering and enterprising spirit is liable to get Ed Broadbent in trouble several times, but eventually his determination to see a project through will succeed.
He is a person who thrives on challenge, and he often feels that he must battle his way through life, relying on no one and nothing but his own strength, intelligence and courage. Ed Broadbent believes in being totally honest, true to himself and his own vision and convictions, even if it means standing alone. Honesty, integrity, personal honor and authenticity are Broadbent's gods, and he has no sympathy for weakness of character in others.

Ed Broadbent loves action and if others are settling down into a nice, comfortable little rut, then he is always ready to stir things up, do something new, make changes and introduce some fresh blood.
