U. S. Poultry Association – Amelia Island, FL

Wednesday, July 27th, 2016

I had too much fun with the US POULTRY ASSOCIATION. These shots are from a recent “Listen up Laugh It Up” interactive keynote I delivered in Amelia Island, FL.


US POULTRY ASSOCIATION members join Rik Roberts on stage to sing “back-up”.

Listen Up - Laugh It Up

After a 20 minute laugh session we “take it to the hallway” to get real!

Listen Up – Laugh It Up is an interactive keynote. The focus is on team building and listening. Ideal for groups who want to get their team members on the same page, this keynote will have your group on their feet and having fun.

7-18-16 Wood Financial – Mayberry Method

Wednesday, July 27th, 2016

I had the privilege of working with WOOD FINANCIAL GROUP in Mt. Juliet, TN. Wood Financial will help you work towards achieving all your financial goals and to provide you with a “worry free” retirement. They consider it an honor and a privilege to help their clients work towards making sound investment decisions that will contribute toward a secure future.

I had fun customizing part of my presentation to help them connect their message. If you are in central Tennessee and need a “second opinion” on your financial investments, please consider giving them a call. (615) 826-5749.

Ready to chart your course for success? Then set your GPS for the 17th Annual Speakers Showcase.

Start your journey by registering today for our 2016 showcase being held on Wednesday, August 31. In one morning, you’ll:

  • Be introduced to a dozen speakers as they map out their strategic messages in 12‑minute sound bites.
  • Compare speakers representing a range of price points.
  • See how each speaker interacts and connects with the audience—and with you.

During lunch, you can talk to the speakers to learn more about them and their program options. You’ll have time to network with peers and hear about their experiences. Both Angela Cox and Amy Hutchens from Midwest Speakers Bureau would love to visit with you and answer your questions.

What else will you get?

A feeling of confidence that you’ll find the help you need to chart your course and arrive at your destination successfully. And because the showcase includes humor and uplifting messages, you’ll get a personal boost to start you on your way.

It’s not difficult to take the fastest route to meeting your goals; it happens when we navigate together.

And recalculating becomes a thing of the past.
