"Richard was a hit, not always easy for a closing speaker. He nailed it and received a standing ovation! He was very gracious, motivating, and I would recommend Richard for other audiences."

"The event was spectacular! Richard's talk was really great. Everyone love it and remained engaged the entire time. I've never seen an audience that big here, nor have I sat through an hour plus presentation without 75% of the audience losing interest and start messing with their phones. Thank you for making this happen, I'm very proud of what we all accomplished together."
