"I am truly grateful that I chose to be a part of your seminar. I gained both personally and professionally and the time was very well spent. Corroborating my sentiments is a composite of the seminar evaluations received from participants. One individual said, 'Just what I needed to start off the New Year!' I am in total agreement...the special touches you incorporated into the seminar were great.
The 'TAA Rap" and "We Will Rent You" are examples of your vast creativity and ability to tailor your presentation for your specific audience...Rick thank you for a meaningful and rewarding seminar. I have no doubt that each individual left with a nugget of knowledge or self-reflection that they will always remember."

"Rick's exceptional customizing ability was ideal for our meeting. He did his Heads Up in two parts which wrapped around my Interdisciplinary Therapy slide presentation. His humor, enthusiasm and informative content gave the spark needed to make the event memorable. The perfect culmination was an original song Rick wrote for us, which was inspirational and hit everyone's hearts and funnybones. Heads Up... a smashing success."
