Funny Speaker Goes Back to Work!

Thursday, June 18th, 2020

What happens when a funny speaker is unable to speak? He hunkers down and creates new content for when things resume.

Since March 14th I’ve had no live speaking engagements. Forty-six events were either postponed or cancelled. This morning was the first one back. Couldn’t have been with a better group. When I deposit the check my bank may send me a text later noting “suspicious activity”.

Thanks to The Sevierville Chamber of Commerce for the great event. I delivered my Mayberry Method fun motivational speech. It is now 100% updated with new content. Today I focused on bouncing back from the CORONA virus with tips on “de-fusing the loaded goat”.

For those curious as to the set up they used 3 ballrooms instead of one for 275 guests, socially distanced tables, only 4 at a table, temperature checks accompanied by a wristband, gave everyone a mask, and hand sanitizer on tables and around the conference center.

If you need a funny speaker for your next event just let me know. Have mask, will travel!

Mayberry Method at Collierville Chamber of Commerce

Sunday, June 3rd, 2018

Rik Roberts Collierville Chamber of Commerce

“Rik Roberts offers the perfect combination of education and entertainment. As the keynote speaker for our Chamber’s general membership luncheon, Rik began by engaged the audience with his dead-on impersonation of Deputy Barney Fife. After some interactive fun with a few key business and community leaders in the room, he segued into a fantastic presentation about eliminating distractions in the workplace through the “Mayberry Method”. The audience loved him, and everyone left with takeaways that can be easily implemented to increase productivity in any organization. Rik was a pleasure to work with, and I highly recommend him!”

Listen UP – Laugh it UP Hits Williamson County Young Professionals

RIK ROBERTS LISTEN UP LAUGH IT UP

“Rik Roberts, a professional corporate comedian and keynote speaker worked with Williamson Inc. to spearheaded a YP “Improv” Night where we learned through guided exercises with Rik how to be better listeners, conflict resolution, and teamwork skills. We had a blast and everyone was laughing all night. Everyone walked away with new perspective that they felt they could use in their work lives. I highly recommend switching up a chamber luncheon and trying something like this out.”

Seguin, TX Chamber of Commerce Banquet

Monday, September 25th, 2017

I had a great time as emcee of the 97th annual Chamber of Commerce Awards for Sequin, TX. What a great community with a heart for servant leadership. Just outside of San Antonio is one of Texas’s best kept secrets!

Rik Roberts Emcee

“Rik Roberts is absolutely amazing. Everything he does throughout the night pulls the evening together perfectly. People are laughing, and having a great time as a result of the way he moves the program along. So whether you want an emcee, a comedian or a little bit of both, he’s the best!
