Meeting Planners -- Info on Booking Richard

Planning a meeting or convention can be stressful and time consuming. The scariest part of the job is picking the right speaker(s) for the event. Meeting planners have expressed the need for speakers that are content rich, entertaining, motivational and easy to work with.


Richard is constantly attending educational conferences, taking classes, researching and updating his topics with proven strategies that can easily be implemented at work or at home. Regardless of which topic you choose, Richard gives textbook and practical tools and examples that people can use and implement on a daily basis. At his workshops his handouts offer up easy life changing techniques one can refer back to following the meeting or conference. Richard is happy to consult with the meeting planner and is willing to talk to several members of the organization to customize portions of the presentation to fit within the guidelines of the events goals and objectives.


Richard is a funny, entertaining high-energy speaker who delivers a powerful message through numerous humorous short stories, ventriloquism and hilarious anecdotes. In fact on almost every evaluation people write how much they've laughed and learned from the presentation. One client told us his boss never even cracks a smile. "But today he was smiling and laughing.' Another wrote that Richard's out of the ordinary presentation style is dynamic, very personable and thought provoking. Many others have said that the humor, ventriloquism and outrageous audience interaction made learning fun.


Richard's valuable life changing messages are designed to get people to act or think differently. On our evaluation sheet we ask audience members the greatest single benefit they derived from Richard's presentation, 10 out of 10 audience members write statements like these taken from actual evaluations: "He made me feel dam good about me and the things around me." " I'm fired up about being positive." " He shared thought provoking, real life lessons." "I now choose to get over my fears." "It is ok to laugh at myself." "I will love and accept myself for who I am." "I will no longer surround myself with negative energy." "It's alright to be me." "I will believe in myself and change my attitude!" "I will now remember what is important in my life."

Easy To Work With

He knows first hand how hard it can be to plan a major event. So, Richard's number one goal is work with the meeting planner and conference staff prior to the event to make sure everything goes smoothly.
