    Esteemed Reviews

    Only a select few speakers deliver performances, instead of simply speeches. Rick Clemons is one of those speakers…ahem, performers. He engages the audience with powerful stories, spot-on lessons, and his wonderfully unique wit. Compare Rick to any Broadway performance, and I would pick Rick Clemons every single time.

    There are a lot of speakers out there that can talk about these issues. Rick provides a space for real conversation, connection, and a sense of calm that allows for relationships and change to develop and take hold towards something better together. His experience paired with his calming energy and good sense of humor separates him from the pack.

    Rick is a giant teddy bear. He may look rough and tough, but he’s extremely compassionate, genuine and has a huge desire to help people make bold moves in their lives.
