I organized an employee recognition event and hired Rick Lewis. He exceeded my expectations. Here is unsolicited feedback: "Presenter was excellent." "In my 30 years with the agency this was definitely one of the best awards program." "The motivational speaker was AMAZINGLY FUNNY!" "Great job getting the performer. Many years we've had less-than mediocre speakers, and this guy was a riot... and got a great message across. I especially like the fact that he really only spoke for a few minutes, but his messages were conveyed through the entire performance. Very smart!" "Everyone I talked to enjoyed the Awards Day this year. The best in my 21 years here in AZ!"
If you're looking for an absolutely unique way to bring a group of people together with clean wholesome laughter and fun, and to inspire them to excellence as individuals or as a group, Rick Lewis is exactly what you need.
Here is what the CEO of the Denny's Restaurant chain said about Rick after his presentation to 300 of the company's general managers.
"Rick Lewis provided the most captivating, engaging and eye popping performance I have seen in my 30 years of conference presentations. Even more impressive was his deep insight into human behavior, the culture we align to, its blessings and its curse. Using excerpts from his book, "7 Rules You Were Born to Break" Rick broke down obstacles to taking risks, gave inspiration to "stand out", to be you and be different; and even taught a few men how to stop and ask for directions when in need of help. I have read it through twice now and will borrow heavily from the work in my leadership journey. I am forever changed! Hire Rick and get the book. You will not be disappointed. You are missing out if you don't!"

Here's how Rick's presentation works -
Imagine your guests sitting down for lunch or dinner as their server approaches the table to refresh the water glass.
Filling the glass to the absolute brim from a height of two-and-a-half feet, your guest is asked, "Is that enough water for you?" by a completely straight-faced waiter.
Imagine the same waiter returning to the table throughout the meal and becoming more eccentric with each visit.
In this first segment of his presentation Rick plays the role of an utterly inept server who breaks every rule of normal and expected behavior.
By the end of the meal your guests have leaned to the left or right at least a dozen times to whisper to the person sitting next to them, "Did you just see what I saw?"
Your guests connect with each other and they also begin a journey of awareness into how the unspoken rules of our culture shape our lives.
Suddenly an announcement is made by the hotel management. They have asked the new waiter to come forward and apologize for his behavior.
Nervously arriving on stage, the waiter stammers for words, but he is interrupted by a broadcast of show tunes over the loudspeakers. He is taken over by the mood of the music. As he sheds his uniform, the bright jersey of Rick the entertainer is revealed.
Your audience will finally realize that the waiter is actually their headline act.
Rick uses his training as a performer and comedian to captivate and delight your guests. A master of audience participation, Rick gets your crowd completely involved in his circus stunts and comedy routines.
As he balances objects, juggles and mounts a unicycle that is 12 feet tall, your audience gets the laughs and a powerful message at the same time. Breaking the right rules is essential for organizational excellence.
The audience are participants in Rick's message before it even begins. By the end of his comedy show Rick has the undivided attention of your audience.
Once the stage show has concluded Rick will transition into his speaking presentation. The theme of excellence is approached from a refreshing perspective. Intelligent Misbehavior is the foundation of personal and organizational success.
As a professional misbehaver and author of "7 Rules You Were Born to Break", Rick will share his unique approach that ensures both individual and organizational excellence.
Prior to the event Rick will conference with your group to understand your meeting objectives and tailor his speaking element to focus on the rule your organization could most benefit from breaking.
