As the CEO and co-founder of Efficient Technology Inc, his enterprise forms automation solutions and technology designs are in use by Fortune 500 companies, which currently result in saving thousands of trees annually in paper reductions.
Richard has been a keynote speaker at top universities (USC, Cal Poly Pomona), non-profit groups (Financial Planning Association, National Foundation for Teaching Entrepreneurship, National Association of Personal Financial Advisors) and many corporations (Woodbury Financial Services, Jefferson Pilot Securities, Transamerica).

Richard is a brilliant speaker who can help me and my peers improve social intelligence. After his seminar, I felt more confident with getting a job offer and making friends at social events.

Richard possess great presentation skills. He exudes confidence and serenity despite a rather checkered upbringing. Richard makes the listener feel that he or she too can make the choice of happiness. Particularly effective is the use of photographs from Richs childhood. This visual aid enables the listener to identify more closely with the speaker. It brings the presentation to a more personal level rather than looking at some generic power point slides.

Richard was able to cause me to think in ways I hadn't about finding my true beliefs. His methods are thought provoking and I believe you can really find your true happiness, if you decide to follow the simple steps.

I have worked with many agencies to book guest speakers over the past 5 years. My experience with AAE has been the best. The website, search facilitation software, and speaker briefs were great. The follow-up and support from the sales agent and logistics manager were excellent. We will no doubt be in touch next year.
