Rich was just what our team needed. The topic was applicable to all and held everyone’s attention. He is a gifted speaker.
Rich was easy to work with and very flexible. I personally have heard Rich speak a number of times but it still has an impact on me every time. He has a way of motivating me as a leader to get back to what really matters and inspires me to do more storytelling and focus on gratitude.
Rich did a phenomenal job, especially considering our diverse group. He was engaging, entertaining, and thought provoking but most importantly – genuine!
