  • 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!
