What Are People Saying

Hiring Gary Rifkin as a speaking coach was the best decision I've made in the last several years. His work - helping me craft a keynote-level speech- opened the doors to countless speaking venues. My new speech became the foundation for my first book Gary's ability to advise, consolidate ideas, and build great openings and closings has provided incredible results; his counsel has proven invaluable to me - Tom Sheives, PhD, Author of OPPORTUNITY unstuck!

Gary is an experienced and talented speaker. He has the patience and imagination of a true teacher. Gary brought a wealth of knowledge and creativity to our project. He is easy to work with and has the ability to challenge and encourage at the same time. The experience was of huge value to me and to the organization for this year's event and going forward - Lee Ann Stember, President, National Council for Prescription Drug Programs

Your stewardship of the Cavett Institute helped to make this one of the 3 most memorable professional experiences of my life, & for that I am eternally grateful. I am just getting my second career off the ground, and what I experienced today in Orlando reinforced for me that this was a decision of destiny for me. I truly felt like I came "home" today
