"Rick's ability to present a clear message using his personal life experiences enables everyone to understand and relate to him in a unique way. His ability to inspire and motivate goes beyond the norm; he speaks about how companies can change to achieve more by going back to basics of honesty, loyalty, trust and character. He definitely made an impact when he came to visit us and everyone was very moved by what he had to say. His message still resonates as we try to make a difference in our business everyday for our customers, partners and international team members."

"Rick Rigsby is one of the greatest communicators I know . . . . There's something special about Rick, his life and his message."
John L. Mason, Speaker and Best-selling Author of An Enemy Called Average
"Dr. Rick Rigsby is a warm and compassionate human being who genuinely cares about other people. He also cares deeply about our country, and is deeply concerned about the slippery slope we have been on as a society, with many traditional values deteriorating right before our eyes. He's on the front line and he is out there making a difference. As one of the most powerful communicators I've ever seen, he has spoken to audiences all over the country, delivering an important message on why it's important to live honorably and do the right thing. And, people are paying attention! Dr. Rigsby was rated a top speaker, and received a standing ovation, at the 2006 National Character and Leadership Symposium at the United States Air Force Academy, for which I was personally responsible for organizing."
Joseph W. Mazzola, USAF (retired), Former Director of the Center for Character Development - United States Air Force Academy
"Rick is one of the most dynamic and inspiring individuals I have been associated with in my 25 years of experience in NCAA Division I athletics. I have personally seen how his heartfelt words of wisdom have significantly impacted the lives of hundreds of student-athletes over the years and have in turn inspired them to make a difference in their family, faith, and community. Whether you are a coach, administrator or business professional, you’ll appreciate these great life lessons that celebrate the values of a generation past and how they apply to our daily lives as we attempt to help shape the core values of our future leaders."

After spending two days on a variety of topics we wanted to end the conference on a high note, and emphasize the leadership role that our managers play. The content of your presentation was right on target and your delivery was exceptional and inspirational. You did a wonderful job of using humorous stories to emphasize sound leadership principles. As you know, we have a very diverse audience and you were able to reach everyone…your message and presentation got rave reviews. I look forward to talking to you about doing this again sometime in the future.”
