—Kamal Manglani, Agile Coach, Fortune 500 Companies

"Rich has a compelling presence as he combines storytelling (which encompasses unique ideas that shift paradigms, change visions, and alter techniques) and how he built an organization embedded in a culture of Joy, yet very high-level effectiveness."
