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!
Agent and Conference Coordinator
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].
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.

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

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!

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.
Idaho Hospital Association
Words cannot express how magnificent your presentation was! A standing ovation from 800 medical professionals says it all!
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.
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!
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!
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!
Marketing Director, FTN Environmental Associates

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.
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!

Thanks to your professionalism and knowledge, the 2006 Administrative Conference was a huge success! YOUR KEYNOTE WAS THE HIGHEST RATED WE’VE EVER HAD!
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!!
Incredible! Time flies, you’re mesmerized! He’s heartwarming and brilliant!
Richard F. Keenan
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!
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.

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.
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!

Texas Agricultural Coop Council
You came with high recommendations and now I can categorically attest to your superior rating! Your mixture of magic and motivation was exceptional and fresh. Even after several weeks, they’re still talking about it!
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.
Director Of Operations, Michigan Region
Thank you, Thank you and Thank you! I am receiving fabulous feedback on your speech. 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!
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!
Franklin County, Alabama
Just absolutely the best hour-and-a-half I’ve spent in a LONG time!
Meeting Planner, Education and Training Administrator
State Farm Insurance, Jacksonville, Florida
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.
Salesperson, Advanced Fluid Connectors, Inc
The absolute best program I’ve ever seen.
Business Coach to the Speaking Industry
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.

I’m sure you hear it all the time but your presentation was fabulous. I got so much good feedback from so many people I lost count. We’ve had some good speakers but I’m not sure I’ve ever heard so many good things about any other presentation. I hope we can do it again in the future!

The Entrepreneur Source, Fort Lauderdale, Florida
Billy just spoke at our national TES (The Entrepreneur Source) Conference in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida, and was INCREDIBLE! His awesome presentation had the audience laughing and thinking at the same time! How he accomplished what he showed us was nothing short of AMAZING, and he definitely connected with us and effectively conveyed the important message our company wanted us to hear! GREAT JOB BILLY!!!
What a combination! Humor, magic, and a real learning experience. Fabulous presentation!

Awesome! The seminar flew by in no time! At the edge of our seats waiting for more!
