What seminar organizers are saying

Rick Pay is a master communicator with the strategic skill and experience to bring all types of audiences to a point of new understanding. His ideas are well-planned and his delivery is extremely articulate and inspiring. As a result, he is one of our most popular presenters. Every time he speaks before our members I can expect a host of positive responses. He challenges his audiences with vision and new insight, and he gives practical direction for moving forward. He is, in fact, among the finest presenters we have had.

As the President of a large trade organization it is always difficult to find timely and relevant topics that also offer new perspectives and a fresh outlook. Working with Mr. Pay was a wonderful experience, his detailed knowledge of operations combined with his global view made for a unique program that was also very applicable. He took the time to learn about our organization, designed a program that was custom fit to our membership, and delivered a great presentation that really created value for those who attended.

I have twice hired Rick Pay to present programs to CEOs from companies with $5 million to $250 million in revenue. Rick is a clear, organized presenter. He knows his subject well. He is able to communicate it to others and enhance his audience’s skills and abilities in real, concrete hands-on ways. What makes Rick especially effective is that he understands how to make learning incremental, building on each skill level as he proceeds. I would hire Rick again and without hesitation.

I have had the opportunity to hear Rick Pay speak at several recent events. Whether it is on supply chain management, total cost of ownership or leadership and strategy he always connects with his audience. In every instance, he has left me with several valuable take-aways I have been able to use.
