Rik Roberts Mayberry Method Keynote

“Great presenter! Engaged our entire audience with his Mayberry Method keynote, including attendees ranging from mid 20’s to those in their 60’s or 70’s. Highly recommend!”

“Rik did a fabulous job tailoring his presentation to fit our group. His unique ability to not only have our group laugh but also learn something in the process makes him one of the best speakers I have had. Our group has a tough job working in the customer service and support role, his presentation helped motivate them to do better in the workplace. I highly recommend Rik!”

“We had the privilege of having Rik at our Annual Conference where he performed and spoke both as himself and in character as Barney Fife. He did a great job interacting with our attendees outside of the sessions at which he spoke. They all enjoyed the added element his presence brought to the event. His keynote information was very insightful and we got many positive comments on having Rik at our Conference this year. He was a great person to work with both onsite and off and we thoroughly enjoyed having him at our event. Thanks Rik for making our Conference great!”

RI ROBERTS MAYBERRY METHOD

 

“I am not even sure where to begin, RIK ROBERTS, just WOW!! So every year we have a two day event “Calloway’s Nursery, Inc. Product Knowledge Extravaganza” where we split all of our store personal from Calloway’s Nursery, Inc. Rik made it so different! He mixed comedy in with his keynote speaking as well his Barney Fife get up and just took the stage like we have NEVER seen before. I was just sitting back and watching people fall out of their chairs laughing! NO LIE!

So at the beginning he dressed in costume which he wore so well (looked like the real thing!) and walked around talking and laughing with everyone, cracking jokes! Then right before the show started he called a few of our employees up to the front and gave them citations! This was a BIG hit! We had been talking and emailing with him before the event and he had us give him a few names with a little back ground on the employees. Then he created citations from the information we provided him. This was the funniest thing ever, the look on their faces!

Then when he got up to speak everyone was rolling.  It was clean, fun, comedy, keynote clear message, outstanding, eye catching – all rolled in one!

In the past people get bored and sit on their phones, while the speaker is speaking. But this year I didn’t see NOT ONE person NOT paying attention!!! The only phones I saw out this year was everyone recording!

Rik is most definitely the best speaker we have had doing our events over the past 12 years!! I had so many compliments I can’t even count! If someone is looking for something different, fun, upbeat, attention getting RIK ROBERTS IS THE BEST!!

“We had Rik Roberts do a show for about 35 of our producers and their spouses tonight. He did an excellent job. Everyone in the group was laughing. He had some good Ag related material and kept us laughing for over an hour. If we ever want to hire a comedian again we would be happy to hire Rik Roberts.”

Comedian Rik Roberts at KACo Conference

 

“Thank you so much for your awesome performance at the Kentucky Association of Counties 43rd Annual Conference & Exposition held Nov. 9, 2017 at the Galt House Hotel in Louisville, Kentucky.

The feedback that we received was overwhelmingly positive. Our large group appreciated your clean humor. When in Louisville it’s hard to compete with 4th Street Live entertainment. However, you maintained to keep everyone in their seats during the hour long performance. It was a pleasure working with you and we look forward to working with you again in the future.”

ARROWHEAD FUNERAL DIRECTORS

Monday, October 23rd, 2017

I know what jokes you are thinking of right now! But no, they were not a “dead” audience and they were not “dying to leave the room”. They were in fact a great group of very family focussed funeral home directors and suppliers who wanted to take their service to another level.

Arrowhead Funeral Directors Association

Among the group were Gregg Bright (far left) and Tim Koch. The group was also complimented by a gentleman who recently remodeled his home to be a replica of The Andy Griffith Show set! You can check out the results – and even stay in this bed and Breakfast – at www.TaylorHomeInn.com. Tell him “Old Barn” sent you!

“Rik was fantastic. Everyone is still sending me positive comments and others want to know how to book him for their events. Thanks, Rik!”
