Provocative, interactive and often outrageously funny, we deliver substance in a very unique style. We uses humor, anecdote and everyday allegories to make it easy for people to absorb messages that are vitally important to their company. Maybe that’s why so many leading retailers and groups, suppliers and manufacturers, service, product and trade associations listen to Rick to get results.

With keynotes speeches lasting form 45 from versus form 75 min, we make sure to cover the essentials for improving YOUR retail business.
