“We invited Rich to our annual Wisconsin Parks and Recreation Conference, we had an idea of what type of quality speaker we were getting. The energy level was through the roof and knowledge provided was excellent. By the fourth session the room was packed with attendees. We cannot wait to have him back in the near future.”

“I wanted to personally thank you for the work you did with my employees. You seemed to quickly grasp the difficulty that the organization was going through and proved yourself to be a valuable resource.

I was in awe of the job that you did, not only gaining perspective, but your ability to reframe the issue in a non-confrontational, therapeutic, and FUN manner. The training seemed more Iike fun, but accomplished ail of the goals-and left the group wanting to go on.

I will highly recommend you to help with mission-driven work or simply to energize or motivate a team.”

Rich’s playfulness and dynamic presentation skills far exceeded our expectations and gave our employees a terrific sendoff. We have implemented ‘Recess At Work’, and continue to plan motivational and silly activities to engage our workers on a regular basis. Whether Rich is arranging a marshmallow fight on the Waterbury Green or blowing bubbles at the Trumbull Mall, you know he loves his job and is eager to share his powerful message that fun is a catalyst for innovative and productive behavior in the workplace.”
