I have seen many speakers in my days but Dr. Rigsby was the WOW factor that all the others were missing. He took our group through so many emotions just talking about "Lessons From A Third Grade Dropout" while relating it to our business! His message was strong and something I will never forget. I bought his book and will be passing his message onto all of my employees. I applaud Volkswagen for bringing him to us and also Dr. Rigsby for delivering a memorable and meaningful message. Thank you! Make an Impact!

Many folks, myself included, really resonated with his message of getting back to the basics. In today's society, many have forgotten human decency and he gave us all that little nudge to be better people. He engaged the audience perfectly for a dinner keynote and was quite entertaining.
