Good content and delivery by a knowledgeable and seasoned practitioner. Richards excels on this topic. One of Lawline’s best ever. Lawline, please invite him to speak again! From Reagan to Clinton, Kennedy to Dole, Abraham Lincoln to Oprah Winfrey and Mother Theresa to the Earl Spencer, Richards gives a forceful, persuasive, relevant program that will resonate with audiences. Engaging and informative (entertaining) use of case examples. Notably, and importantly, "my client is my client."
