A Tribute to Greg Risberg, MSW, CSP

Greg RisbergThe Capitol City Speakers Bureau opened its doors in early 1993, and we sponsored our first Speaker Showcase in the summer of 1994. On that day, 18 speakers appeared during an all-day event, and each presented for 20 minutes in front of a room full of meeting planners. Greg Risberg was among those 18 speakers.

Greg knocked it out of the park with great humor, touching stories and a down-to-earth style. Over the past 20 years, we booked him a lot for all types of organizations. After his presentations, the feedback was always the same - terrific, inspirational, funny, memorable and insightful! It didn't matter if the speech was given to a group of nurses or to a bunch of homebuilders.

I used to joke with him that he was my second favorite MSW (Master of Social Work), and he was okay with that since he knew my wife is also an MSW.

When the 9/11 attacks happened, a speaker we had booked for the next day was stranded when all air travel was suspended. Julie Efaw, our Vice President, called Greg to see if he could be the replacement speaker. Not only was he was available, he drove to the event and laughed and cried with the healthcare group. He remarked to me several times it was one of the most impactful, meaningful speeches of his life.

Greg Risberg Sadly, Greg unexpectedly passed away on November 11. There will be a void felt for audiences across the United States. Greg Risbergs don't come along very often. From everyone at the Capitol City Speakers Bureau, we want to extend our condolences to his wife, Madeleine, his speaker colleagues and his friends. We'll miss you, Greg!
