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!”

“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!!

Mayberry Method at Collierville Chamber of Commerce

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!”

NCAT 2018 Rik Roberts

“Rik Roberts was exactly what our conference needed after two solid days of technical presentations and site tours. His “Mayberry Method” presentation had the right balance of information/strategies to combat wasteful work habits well blended with his wonderful sense of humor. Everyone had a great time with some great takeaways from his performance. He was an absolute professional and great to work with!”

Mayberry Method Rik Roberts

“Rik Roberts presented the “Mayberry Method” to our group.  He was very well received by all level of employees.  Not one person, in the audience of 190, lost interest during the 90 minutes he “entertained” and educated our group.  We even had an added bonus of unexpected interaction of an official Kansas Highway Patrol Officer that assisted in his great message of how to react/respond when in an unusual or difficult situation.  Many employees have requested to have him back again!

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!”

Kansas, that is!

What an enjoyable morning it was in Manhattan, KS presenting The Mayberry Method to the Riley County Clerks office. These hard working folks are on the front lines of making sure things county-wide are running smoothly. Fife likes this kind of group!
