-Paychex, Inc.

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.
