Rick is a long-time personal friend of mine whom I respect and greatly admire. I have heard him speak numerous times and he is dynamic, engaging, and insightful. He has my highest endorsement.

Dr. Rigsby now devotes his full attention to empowering people worldwide—from presenting leadership principles in Nigeria to speaking to Fortune 500 companies in the Americas, Europe and Canada. In high demand among educational, business and service organizations and a favorite among professional sports organizations including the National Football League and the PGA, Rick offers common-sense wisdom to those desiring to rise to greater levels of excellence.
