Why do our clients rebook our Economist Speaker Peter Ricchiuti year after year? One client has had him 5 years in a row!!!

Probably because without a doubt, he is the most entertaining, engaging, charismatic, funny and insightful Economist alive.

This guy is “Human Tabasco!” Peter’s presentation is the hit of every meeting we have booked him for.




“I loved it. He’s half Warren Buffett and half Robin Williams.”

"A Capitalist and Realistic Optimist, Just What We Needed At This Time”.



“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.”


“Peter is a pleasure to work with and smarter than a tree full of owls!”
