Executive Director

“Richard was able to deliver a highly motivating talk that was specifically tailored to our audience. To this day, I still receive positive comments about him and I would recommend Richard to any group that is looking to energize their people.”

Assistant Director at South Central WorkForce Council

“I have heard Richard’s presentation on two separate occasions and he is absolutely amazing. He is a very talented speaker. He is charismatic and entertaining. Our staff loved his presentation! They all left the day inspired on a professional and personal level. Both times that I saw him, he tailored his presentation to fit the needs of the group. He does his homework to really understand your groups needs and does a great job of reinforcing your message throughout his presentation. I can’t say enough great things about him. We offer a number of trainings for staff and as far as speakers go, he stands out as one of the best.”

Founder & Chairman, AA-ISP

“As Chairman of the American Association of Inside Sales Professionals, I had the pleasure of working with Richard as one of our motivational speakers for 2 of our conferences. Richard is a dynamic speaker with a story of overcoming challenges and adversity. His background as an NBA player was a good draw to our audience, but it was his enthusiastic and heartfelt comments about meeting and overcoming challenges which really resonated with them. Our association members gave Richard outstanding feedback through our conference surveys. We will certainly have him back again soon to speak! If you are considering a motivation speaker, I would recommend Richard!”

President at RAM Mutual Insurance Company

“Richard is a high energy presenter that is entertaining and sincere. He is able to connect with his audience using life experiences. I would highly recommend Richard as a speaker.”
