Select Testimonials

"We brought Rich in to speak on Strategic Thinking to our group of 150 senior leaders and managers and he "hit it out of the park". Aside from his delivery being very engaging, his message resonated with everyone in our conference and every single person walked away with tools and techniques that they've committed to applying back in their organizations. We'll definitely be looking for future opportunities to engage with Rich again!"

Dale Hicks, Intel

"Rich was the most effective speaker at the SHRM Conference. I loved his session on Strategy, and it was hugely relevant and effective for HR leaders. He is smart, focused, warm, connecting and stimulating. The room was electric during his talk. If you had been responsible for the success of this conference, and if every scheduled speaker had fallen overboard the day before it started, and if you had only one rope, you would have saved him first."

Dennis Buster, President & CEO, MyDirectLine

"What separates Rich Horwath from other strategy resources is that he presents the subject is a very understandable, relevant and practical manner. Those who attend one of his sessions find that they can immediately apply strategy tools and concepts to their business. His Deep Dive program is an excellent business resource that outlines a clear roadmap for any manager to immediately improve their strategic efforts."

John Wandishin, VP of Marketing, 
Brother International

"I’ve seen Rich Horwath present on Strategy twice now and highly recommend Rich if you or your organization want to increase your strategic capability. Rich takes the complex topic of Strategy and provides a straightforward framework and practical resources to advance strategic thinking. I personally appreciated his 3As discipline of strategic thinking: Acumen, Allocation, Action. Rich presented at the Intel Global Sourcing & Procurement Leadership Conference and the participants were able to take his framework and immediately apply to real Supply Chain business challenges. And to boot, Rich is a great storyteller – he was clearly one of the favorites at our conference."

Kristin Porter, People Talent, Intel

“Rich is an exceptional talent and one I look to for expert advice on business strategy. Rich brings an astute knowledge of strategic thinking to the C-level attendees in the audience, and provides a clear action plan for how they can incorporate these principles into their daily activities to create a competitive advantage. From his content to his delivery, Rich's presentations are impeccable. I have never been more impressed with a keynote speaker.”

LynAnn Henderson, Marketing Director, Employee Benefits Management Services

“Rich provided an outstanding presentation on strategic thinking and planning for the Young President’s Organization. The presentation was very interactive with our members and we received tremendous feedback from our members.”

Rob Wilson, YPO Windy City Chapter Education Chair

“Rich has a great stage presence, prepares meticulously, and executes his remarks very effectively. He opened our conference panel with a discussion of key strategic leadership characteristics, and left our audience, including me, wanting to know more. He then led an informed and interesting discussion between two notable CEOs in a way that was engaging and insightful.”

Tisha Schuller, President & CEO, Colorado Oil & Gas Association
