"Mr. Meyer spoke with our middle school and high school students and did an outstanding job motivating them to become the best student and person they can be. He used examples from his own life that were very relevant to his message and students were able to connect with him. Mr. Meyer spoke from the heart and shared with our students his vision of what success is and how students can achieve the goals they set in life. You would be doing your students a great service to have Mr. Meyer out to speak and share his story."

“Rick’s energy is electrifying…he can capture and engage an audience with such ease. Most people know that sports are very physical, but Rick explains the mental science inside sports that creates winners that is unseen to spectators.”

What a dynamic presentation you gave last evening!  All who attended had to be energized by the depth of your talk.  Voice quality and projection, gestures, stage positioning . . . are but a few of the many qualities I enjoyed observing you develop. It’s no wonder that you are a SPEAKING CHAMPION as well as a RUNNER PAR’ EXCLENCE (and undoubtedly a great agronomist, too).

Thanks for your contribution to our betterment.

Experience

"Rick is an enterprising individual with boundless energy and contagious enthusiasm. Having known Rick for over 15 years, I attest him to be a man of high integrity and character. When relating a story to an audience of 1 or 1,000, Rick's is not a fabrication of truth rather sage wisdom in the spirit of Will Rogers on Jolt Cola. He's truly been there and done that! He lives that which he professes which makes him a rare person indeed. I place confidence in advice shared by Rick over the years and feel fortunate to have spent hours working with him on issues faced in business environments."
          ~ Charles Kahl, Dow AgroSciences

I have enclosed a copy of that paper as I know that your family will want to see the high esteem that you are held in by your community! Again, thank you so much for helping to make this special day such a success! "
