We’ve developed a special Client’s Bill of Rights just for you! We’ve anticipated your concerns and taken great steps to put your mind at ease. Relax! You’re dealing with a true professional! Your Bill of Rights follows below….


  1. You have a right to expect me, Billy Riggs, to be a good steward of your expense money. I will fly coach and seek the lowest reasonable air fare. Meals will be reasonably priced, tips will be average, rental cars will be market rate or lower.
  2. You have a right to expect me (whenever possible) to book my flight itinerary allowing sufficient opportunity to arrive on time for the engagement even if my original scheduled flight were to cancel.
  3. You have a right to expect me to customize my presentation to meet your company’s specific needs, properly using your company’s terminology, goals, and job titles.
  4. You have a right to expect me to know the theme of your conference or function and to incorporate it into my presentation.
  5. You have a right to expect me to be ready to begin my presentation on time, and to end on time.
  6. You have a right to expect me to be flexible, adjusting the length of the presentation, or its focus, or the start time to meet your needs.
  7. You have a right to expect the highest integrity in all of my dealings with you and your people.
  8. You have a right to expect me to make a presentation that is “squeaky” clean and suitable for all audiences. Likewise, I will conduct myself with decorum, and not use profanity or off-color remarks whether on or off the platform.
  9. You have a right to expect me to be available to you as often as needed before the presentation to talk with you by phone about the specific needs of your group.
  10. You have a right to expect me to avoid making my presentation a thinly disguised attempt to market products. No more than 60 seconds will be used for this purpose, and none at all should you request it.
