Delivering Tangible Results
Rick has worked with small businesses to Fortune 500 companies, elementary schools through higher education, local churches to international ministries, and individuals to entire companies. His focus is primarily with soft skills such as nonverbal communication, memory, creative problem solving, interacting with varying personalities, life balance, time management, etiquette, and presentation coaching. His knowledge and usage of the art and science of communication are what earn him requests for frequent return visits and consistently high evaluations.
