“Richard’s enthusiasm and mastery of his topic is infectious”

“Richard is a knowledgeable, organized, approachable practical instructor”

“The energy about the topic was what set this talk apart from others”

“Your presentation made me rethink how I think about the success of our team and our company”

“I can’t wait to try what I learned in this presentation. I’ll start tomorrow”

“If I took away one new practice from this, it would have been excellent—as it happened, I have half a dozen new ways to help our team grow and improve. That’s what I’d call super awesome!”
