My wife Jean and I were honored and pleased when Richard called and sang to her on Mother’s Day. She enjoyed it so much she asked Richard to sing to her a second time. This time she put him on speakerphone so our whole family could enjoy it. And indeed we did!

- Zig Ziglar, Motivational and Inspirational Guru

We were lucky enough to have Richard Fabozzi facilitate a lunch and learn on The Dynamics of Interpersonal Relationships through the University of Tennessee. Richard was very engaging, informative and entertaining during his 90 minute session. Our staff was extremely immersed in his teachings, and did not want the class to end. After the session, I received many comments about how Richard was the best facilitator that we have had and they hoped he could return to teach another class. All of our participating staff has continued to praise Richard's style of presentation, which included content delivered in a passionate, humorous and professional manner.

It is without question that we would recommend Richard for any class facilitation or entertainment event. It has been a pleasure to work with Richard and we look forward to doing so again in the future.

Whether he is presenting his "Joy in the Workplace" seminar, a stress management workshop or performing his "Tribute to the Rat Pack" musical program, Richard immediately creates an intimate connection with his audiences. All his programs are highly interactive, experiential and transformative. He understands that creating a safe, positive and relaxed atmosphere is conducive to achieving optimal results.

Richard has been hired for his services by a Marketing Manager, Meeting Planner, HR Executive, Wellness Program Director, Sales Manager and Event Planner. Thank you for sharing his information with the corresponding Professionals in your company.

Sharing your own personal story of cancer treatment and recovery was especially meaningful to our audience. Letting people know that your Joy comes from a deep place of intention, having weathered difficult challenges that come with cancer, helps others know that it is possible for them too.
