Our evening with Dick could not have been better. He is so gracious and interested in everyone he meets. Our Hall of Fame inductees could not believe that Dick called each one to stand by name as he told a little about them and personally congratulated them on their induction. The audience of more than 250 people were mesmerized during his presentation. He was undoubtedly the most well-received speaker we have had on campus in quite a while.Fellowship of Christian Athletes of South Central Missouri
Our folks LOVED Dickie V. His speech was all they could talk about. He's the most popular keynote speaker we have ever had, which was evidenced by both increased attendance in the session (our largest number to date) and the fact that the audience was spellbound. He put his heart and soul into the talk; a real pro. He was so captivating that nobody was texting or checking email or doing anything else but listening intently to what he had to say. He held them in the palm of his hand. It was amazing.IDN Summit
