Wendy J. Ruud

Vice President
Independent Community Bankers of North Dakota

Billy was superb! He combined his magic, humor and message to deliver an uplifting and thought-provoking keynote to all our attendees. He had our audience captivated and laughing not only at his wonderful message and humor but also at themselves. They left smiling and many stated that his message was “right on” and “hit the mark.” He received a rating of 9.8 with 10 being perfect!

Rebecca Huddle

Agent and Conference Coordinator
Farmers Insurance

The only word I can think of to describe Billy Riggs is “WOW!” He has the whole package. One minute he has you crying, the next minute laughing, and the magic is incredible. You leave believing you can accomplish anything! He did an amazing job with magic and inspiration and I am still getting rave reviews from agents all over the state [of California].

Sue Rogers

Executive Director
Minnesota Funeral Directors Association

It’s been a tremendous pleasure to be able to write this thank you letter to you! All of those who turned in an evaluation form rated you a “firewall 5” out of a possible 5! To the best of my knowledge, this has never happened at our convention. To say you hit a bull’s eye with your presentation would be a gross understatement.

Roger Symonds

Superintendent of Facilities
Saranac Lake Central School District, Saranac Lake, New York

If you have not heard Billy Riggs, you have not heard the best inspirational speaker of our times.

Rick Grapengater

President
National Gas Compressors

I’ve never seen anyone get a standing ovation from a bunch of CEOs like you did! It’s certainly never happened at our convention before!

Allen B. Pease

Attorney
Black and Veatch Consulting and Engineering

I have attended scores of motivational speeches. WITHOUT A DOUBT, YOU ARE LIGHT YEARS AHEAD OF EVERYONE. Thanks!

Joseph H. Bourdow

President
Valpak Direct Marketing Systems, Largo, Florida

This may be the first testimonial letter I’ve written in 15 years of picking speakers for our national meetings (we do three a year). You absolutely nailed it for us! The audience (after a late night and long day) was with you every step of the way, and two curtain calls from 1000 people sums it all up.

Steve Millard

President
Idaho Hospital Association

Words cannot express how magnificent your presentation was! A standing ovation from 800 medical professionals says it all!

Tyler Pierson

Co-Founder
Untyed Networking Group

We’ve held 300+ meetings since I founded Untyed. Billy Riggs is by far the most entertaining, thought provoking and inspirational speaker we have ever had present to Untyed.

Amy Fox

Executive Assistant
Automotive Training Institute

I just wanted to write to let you know that based on our instant surveys you received a 4.94 out of 5, and that makes you the first SuperConference speaker to ever beat our CEO’s score (he’s quite a speaker) – and by a whole tenth of a point!

Pete Torpel

President
Phone On Hold Marketing

Absolutely entertaining, informative and uplifting!! I took much more away than just a program. You are such a talented man! After your session, we were all talking. We all agreed that yours was the best program we’ve had in the nine years we’ve been holding conventions. You should be playing in Vegas to huge crowds. THANKS!

Stewart Ellis-Myers

Sales
Cruise Holidays

I have studied about every speaker in this industry, and I cannot think of anyone who even comes close to Billy Riggs’ skills. He blew me away!

Terry Horton

Marketing Director, FTN Environmental Associates
Arkansas Independent Petroleum and Royalty Owners

Fantastic! Right when I needed it. Couldn’t be better. I’ve trained thousands of speakers over the past 20 years, and I can be very critical. But you are bar-none the best speaker I’ve ever heard.

Kristin Quackenbush

PictureTel
Andover, Massachusetts

I saw you about 9 years ago and listened to your message. I was young and new to my sales career. You inspired me! Your message so impacted me that now I’m one of the top reps and full of confidence and energy!

Lou Suquett

Senior Regional Service Director
Boys and Girls Clubs of America

Thanks to your professionalism and knowledge, the 2006 Administrative Conference was a huge success! YOUR KEYNOTE WAS THE HIGHEST RATED WE’VE EVER HAD!

William Kirven

Board Member
Navasota Valley Electric Cooperative

It was totally awesome!!! Could not have been better!! I’m ready to RUN back to work now. I wish it could go on another hour or two!!

Richard F. Keenan

Executive Director
The New England Gas Association

Thought-provoking, entertaining, thoroughly customized to our needs… your program was pertinent and meaningful to our members. 95% of our attendees rated your presentation as “excellent” I think those are the highest evaluations in the history of our annual convention!

Eddie Grogan

President
Georgia Chapter of HCAOA (Home Care Association of America)

Mr. Riggs was awesome! Haven’t seen a motivational speaker that was spot on target with his audience in years and I attend approximately three conferences annually. I’m a little bit of an anomaly in that I not only own my private Home Care firm but also a temporary employment service serving central Georgia, a hospice and a fitness center. And I’m a practicing clinical pharmacist by training. Therefore, I’m at several conferences during the year. I feel I can speak from experience that Billy Riggs is, by far, the best. I feel I can speak from experience that Billy Riggs is, by far, the best.

Bill Blair

Executive Director
Missouri Jewelers Association

We just finished tabulating the surveys for the weekend — and the MJA members gave you one of the highest ratings we’ve ever experienced. We’ve been asking members to complete surveys for more than 20 years, and there is no question — there are always some who don’t believe that any presenter/entertainer deserves a rating of 5 (on a 1 is poor and 5 is excellent scale). So — when we have a presenter that receives a rating of 5 on nine out of every ten surveys and has an over-all average rating of 4.8, we are thrilled.

Bob Hughes

Auctioneer
Pioneer Press

Captivating, informative and fun. The best thing I’ve seen in my whole entire life! I’ve been attending conferences for 30 years and hearing high-powered speakers. Billy Riggs is the best!

Charlie “Tremendous” Jones

Laughed so hard I nearly wet myself! And I LOVED the message!

Incredible! Billy doesn’t just hold the audience in the palm of his hands, he grabs them, shakes them, spins them around, and sets them down in a new and better place.

Bridgette Hernandez

Director Of Operations, Michigan Region

The restaurant managers and operators truly found it motivating, inspiring and sizzling and once again you “ROCKED IT.” Looking forward to working with you in the future and I sure will share you amongst the other regions and colleagues. Hope to see you soon!

Garry Pincock

CEO
American Cancer Society, Pennsylvania Division

Terrific… very entertaining and motivational. Several of my key people who have been with me 8 or 9 years have sought me out to tell me that yours was the best program we’ve ever had at our conference. I’m not just blowing smoke—I agree with them!

Sissy Moore

Librarian
Franklin County, Alabama

Just absolutely the best hour-and-a-half I’ve spent in a LONG time!

Suzanne Hungerford

Meeting Planner, Education and Training Administrator

Spectacular, awesome, extraordinary, entertaining, enlightening, grand are just a few of the words I would choose to describe your presentation at Southeastern University! Even though you came to us as a recommendation from our sister region, their words of praise still did not amount to what the live performance actually was.

Rich Bare

Salesperson, Advanced Fluid Connectors, Inc
Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

The absolute best program I’ve ever seen.

Juanel Teague

Business Coach to the Speaking Industry
Dallas, Texas

During my 17 years in the speaking industry as a full-time speakers bureau…working with heavyweights, I’ve never seen so much talent rolled up into one person has I have with Billy Riggs. Billy has the ability to be as inspirational as Zig Ziglar, as insightful as Steven Covey and as entertaining as David Copperfield all at the same time. I don’t know anyone else in the speaking business who can be as entertaining, motivational and informative in one program.

Sue Rogers

Executive Director
Minnesota Funeral Directors Association

It’s been a tremendous pleasure to be able to write this thank you letter to you! All of those who turned in an evaluation form rated you a “firewall 5” out of a possible 5! To the best of my knowledge, this has never happened at our convention. To say you hit a bull’s eye with your presentation would be a gross understatement.

Andy Imholte

Director
Minnesota State Auctioneers Association

By far the BEST keynote speaker our association has ever had! Never has our group enjoyed a speaker who held their attention and excitement so extraordinarily!

Karen Bradley Burnett

Meeting Planner
American Feed Industry Association

You put the WOW in our conference! No one – absolutely no one – left the room during your presentation. You had them truly captured!

Pete Torpel

President
Phone On Hold Marketing

Absolutely entertaining, informative and uplifting!! I took much more away than just a program. You are such a talented man! After your session, we were all talking. We all agreed that yours was the best program we’ve had in the nine years we’ve been holding conventions. You should be playing in Vegas to huge crowds. THANKS!

Michael LeJeune

Executive Director
Texas Association of Personnel Consultants

Our people are not easy to impress, but most people I spoke to referred to Billy as the best keynote speaker we have ever had! I cannot recommend Billy strongly enough!

Richard F. Keenan

Executive Director
The New England Gas Association

Thought-provoking, entertaining, thoroughly customized to our needs… your program was pertinent and meaningful to our members. 95% of our attendees rated your presentation as “excellent” I think those are the highest evaluations in the history of our annual convention!

Eddie Grogan

President
Georgia Chapter of HCAOA (Home Care Association of America)

Mr. Riggs was awesome! Haven’t seen a motivational speaker that was spot on target with his audience in years and I attend approximately three conferences annually. I’m a little bit of an anomaly in that I not only own my private Home Care firm but also a temporary employment service serving central Georgia, a hospice and a fitness center. And I’m a practicing clinical pharmacist by training. Therefore, I’m at several conferences during the year. I feel I can speak from experience that Billy Riggs is, by far, the best. I feel I can speak from experience that Billy Riggs is, by far, the best.

Bill Blair

Executive Director
Missouri Jewelers Association

We just finished tabulating the surveys for the weekend — and the MJA members gave you one of the highest ratings we’ve ever experienced. We’ve been asking members to complete surveys for more than 20 years, and there is no question — there are always some who don’t believe that any presenter/entertainer deserves a rating of 5 (on a 1 is poor and 5 is excellent scale). So — when we have a presenter that receives a rating of 5 on nine out of every ten surveys and has an over-all average rating of 4.8, we are thrilled.

Harlan Rimmerman

Director of Education
National Auctioneers Association

Billy Riggs is not just a master magician, but someone with a great message – how to do more business and become more successful. Billy’s presentation is very professional and he keeps everyone involved and active. You won’t stop laughing until the end!

Janet Blomquist

Membership Director
Texas Electric Cooperatives Association

I don’t know where to begin to thank you! You were serious when needed, and then – quick as one of your illusions – had them in gales of laughter! You were the highlight of the evening, and I’m still getting calls and comments about your performance! You made it our best banquet ever!

Billy was a hit. Our theme was the Magic of Family Medicine and he made me look great as a meeting planner. This was our first time to offer entertainment during our banquet so I was a little anxious about the change, but our doctors loved it. The afternoon show he presented to our families was funny and very entertaining. I enjoy working with speakers who are versatile and willing to work to make your meeting the best it can be.

Steve Gordon

President

Mr. Billy Riggs recently was the keynote speaker for our annual Idaho Funeral Service Association Convention. We could not have asked for a more timely topic than his presentation on attitude, and I could not have imagined a better presentation for [our] members. His humor and use of illusions made the presentation one of the most memorable that I have ever attended. I heard many high reviews from the participants and there were many who are ready to have Billy return at a future date. I would highly recommend him for an event in your state.

Billy was superb! He combined his magic, humor and message to deliver an uplifting and thought-provoking keynote to all our attendees. He had our audience captivated and laughing not only at his wonderful message and humor but also at themselves. They left smiling and many stated that his message was “right on” and “hit the mark.” He received a rating of 9.8 with 10 being perfect!

It’s been a tremendous pleasure to be able to write this thank you letter to you! All of those who turned in an evaluation form rated you a “firewall 5” out of a possible 5! To the best of my knowledge, this has never happened at our convention. To say you hit a bull’s eye with your presentation would be a gross understatement.

Roger Symonds

If you have not heard Billy Riggs, you have not heard the best inspirational speaker of our times.

Joseph H. Bourdow

President
Valpak Direct Marketing Systems, Largo, Florida

This may be the first testimonial letter I’ve written in 15 years of picking speakers for our national meetings (we do three a year). You absolutely nailed it for us! The audience (after a late night and long day) was with you every step of the way, and two curtain calls from 1000 people sums it all up.

John Zumwalt

Chairman and CEO
PBS & J (Fortune 500)

Just what our company needed! You’re the best I’ve ever seen.

Tyler Pierson

Co-Founder
Untyed Networking Group

We’ve held 300+ meetings since I founded Untyed. Billy Riggs is by far the most entertaining, thought provoking and inspirational speaker we have ever had present to Untyed.

Andy Imholte

Director
Minnesota State Auctioneers Association

By far the BEST keynote speaker our association has ever had! Never has our group enjoyed a speaker who held their attention and excitement so extraordinarily!

Amy Fox

Executive Assistant
Automotive Training Institute

I just wanted to write to let you know that based on our instant surveys you received a 4.94 out of 5, and that makes you the first SuperConference speaker to ever beat our CEO’s score (he’s quite a speaker) – and by a whole tenth of a point!

Pete Torpel

President
Phone On Hold Marketing

Absolutely entertaining, informative and uplifting!! I took much more away than just a program. You are such a talented man! After your session, we were all talking. We all agreed that yours was the best program we’ve had in the nine years we’ve been holding conventions. You should be playing in Vegas to huge crowds. THANKS!

Michael LeJeune

Executive Director
Texas Association of Personnel Consultants

Our people are not easy to impress, but most people I spoke to referred to Billy as the best keynote speaker we have ever had! I cannot recommend Billy strongly enough!

Terry Horton

Marketing Director, FTN Environmental Associates
Arkansas Independent Petroleum and Royalty Owners

Fantastic! Right when I needed it. Couldn’t be better. I’ve trained thousands of speakers over the past 20 years, and I can be very critical. But you are bar-none the best speaker I’ve ever heard.

Lou Suquett

Senior Regional Service Director
Boys and Girls Clubs of America

Thanks to your professionalism and knowledge, the 2006 Administrative Conference was a huge success! YOUR KEYNOTE WAS THE HIGHEST RATED WE’VE EVER HAD!

Dick Zerrahn

Phys. Ed. Teacher
Saranac Lake High School, Saranac Lake, NY

This was my 31st first day talk. By far the best ever! The use of humor, realism, and practical ideas was believable and usable.

Incredible use of comedy, illusion, and motivational speaking. Bar none, the best speaker I have ever heard!

Richard F. Keenan

Thought-provoking, entertaining, thoroughly customized to our needs… your program was pertinent and meaningful to our members. 95% of our attendees rated your presentation as “excellent” I think those are the highest evaluations in the history of our annual convention!

Eddie Grogan

President
Georgia Chapter of HCAOA (Home Care Association of America)

Mr. Riggs was awesome! Haven’t seen a motivational speaker that was spot on target with his audience in years and I attend approximately three conferences annually. I’m a little bit of an anomaly in that I not only own my private Home Care firm but also a temporary employment service serving central Georgia, a hospice and a fitness center. And I’m a practicing clinical pharmacist by training. Therefore, I’m at several conferences during the year. I feel I can speak from experience that Billy Riggs is, by far, the best.

Your “show” was the best I have seen in 25 years in the health care business. Entertaining and uplifting.

Bill Blair

Executive Director
Missouri Jewelers Association

We just finished tabulating the surveys for the weekend — and the MJA members gave you one of the highest ratings we’ve ever experienced. We’ve been asking members to complete surveys for more than 20 years, and there is no question — there are always some who don’t believe that any presenter/entertainer deserves a rating of 5 (on a 1 is poor and 5 is excellent scale). So — when we have a presenter that receives a rating of 5 on nine out of every ten surveys and has an over-all average rating of 4.8, we are thrilled.

Charlie “Tremendous” Jones

Motivational Speaker and Author
Motivational Speakers Hall of Fame Inductee

I rate Billy Riggs as one of the top five speakers in America! He’s the only speaker I’ve ever heard whose recordings I’ve listened to 10 times.

Billy has the ability to be as inspirational as Zig Ziglar, as insightful as Steven Covey and as entertaining as David Copperfield all at the same time. I don’t know anyone else in the speaking business who can be as entertaining, motivational and informative in one program.

And I’m a practicing clinical pharmacist by training. Therefore, I’m at several conferences during the year. I feel I can speak from experience that Billy Riggs is, by far, the best.

Mr. Riggs was awesome! Haven’t seen a motivational speaker that was spot on target with his audience in years and I attend approximately three conferences annually. I’m a little bit of an anomaly in that I not only own my private Home Care firm but also a temporary employment service serving central Georgia, a hospice and a fitness center. And I’m a practicing clinical pharmacist by training. Therefore, I’m at several conferences during the year. I feel I can speak from experience that Billy Riggs is, by far, the best.

Mr. Riggs was awesome! Haven’t seen a motivational speaker that was spot on target with his audience in years and I attend approximately three conferences annually. I’m a little bit of an anomaly in that I not only own my private Home Care firm but also a temporary employment service serving central Georgia, a hospice and a fitness center. And I’m a practicing clinical pharmacist by training. Therefore, I’m at several conferences during the year. I feel I can speak from experience that Billy Riggs is, by far, the best.

Bill Blair

Executive Director
Missouri Jewelers Association

We just finished tabulating the surveys for the weekend — and the MJA members gave you one of the highest ratings we’ve ever experienced. We’ve been asking members to complete surveys for more than 20 years, and there is no question — there are always some who don’t believe that any presenter/entertainer deserves a rating of 5 (on a 1 is poor and 5 is excellent scale). So — when we have a presenter that receives a rating of 5 on nine out of every ten surveys and has an over-all average rating of 4.8, we are thrilled.

Harlan Rimmerman

Director of Education
National Auctioneers Association

Billy Riggs is not just a master magician, but someone with a great message – how to do more business and become more successful. Billy’s presentation is very professional and he keeps everyone involved and active. You won’t stop laughing until the end!

And I’m a practicing clinical pharmacist by training. Therefore, I’m at several conferences during the year. I feel I can speak from experience that Billy Riggs is, by far, the best.
