Conference Speaker: “I need to change that old adage. You should never follow kids, animals or PETER RICCHIUTI."
Conference Attendee: “I loved it. He’s half Warren Buffett and half Robin Williams.”
Conference Planner: “I'd like to personally thank you for your valuable contribution to our Symposium. Your comments and the exceedingly upbeat and humorous manner in which you delivered them did wonders to assuage the very real fear of some of the members that "Economic Armageddon" was just around the corner. Not often do I come across someone like you who can be remarkably entertaining while delivering a terribly important message about the economy. You clearly have an incredible ability to command the eager attention of an audience, which is no small accomplishment.”
Meeting Planner: “Peter is a pleasure to work with and smarter than a tree full of owls!”
Speaking Bureau: This guy is “Human Tabasco!” Peter’s presentation is the hit of every meeting we have booked him for.
I have heard Peter present several times and Peter has a definite spezzatura*.
