As the keynote speaker on the first day, Rich Sheridan launched CAR MBS with a dynamic, engaging presentation, sharing his experience and wisdom about how we all can bring joy to the workplace, disrupt ourselves, and change our attitude to “try and fail/win.” His words were inspirational to our audience and the room was energized with a perfect mindset for the remainder of the conference.”View All Testimonials

Vice President, Global Operations
Steelcase regularly holds an event called ‘Curious Minds’ where we invite internal and external speakers to share thoughts and ideas with our employees. I was thrilled when Rich agreed to be one of our speakers. So was everyone else—we had such a big response that we had to quickly come up with a larger-than-normal venue for his talk. When I talked to people about it afterward, they all had huge smiles. Clearly Rich’s message about joy was infectious. And his delivery was incredible.”View All Testimonials
