Rich has a compelling presence as he combines storytelling (which encompasses unique ideas that shift paradigms, change visions, and alter techniques) and how he built an organization embedded in a culture of Joy, yet very high-level effectiveness.”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

- CMS Energy
In December 2018, Rich participated in a fireside chat with me, where he spoke to more than 200 of CMS Energy’s leaders. Rich was a crowd favorite and left us all feeling inspired and eager to act on his positive ideas. He discussed what it means to be joyful, how he created a joyful culture at Menlo, and how we too might use his practices to bring joy into our workplace. The next day, we had our own discussion about culture, and his fireside chat set us up for a productive conversation.”View All Testimonials
