7 Reasons
Meeting Planners, Event Coordinators, Corporations and Educational Institutions book Enrique 'Rick' Ruiz

1) Unique Content that Resonates with the Audience to Effect Change
Content is unlike any standard Leadership, Diversity and Inclusion training which the audience is sure to have experienced. This training is far more than any check-the-box type of event that audiences have come to expect. It is an eye-opening experience packed full of facts that covers:
  • Discrimination Realities
  • Diversity Opportunities
  • Inclusion Connections
  • Effective Leadership
  • Three Character Types: Wishers, Wishy-Washy's and ?. How to move into being a WASHER!
Training, consultation or speaking engagements can be tailored to reap benefits in:
  • Multicultural Sales and Marketing Objectives
  • Financial/Business Performance Objectives
  • Operational/Functional Objectives
  • Product/Service Objectives
  • Image Enhancement objectives
  • Internal Objectives
  • Other Business Objectives (e.g.- strategic alliances)
  • Personal and Team Development
2) Passionate Delivery that Informs, Inspires, Educates and Entertains, all in one presentation.
Delivery conveys passion, "I-have-been-there perspectives" and confirmed results with the following competencies:
  • Global Business Leader
  • Technical Mastery of Diversity Issues
  • Politically Savvy
  • Champion for Diversity
  • Diversity & Inclusion Consultant
  • Excellent Communicator
  • Collaborator
  • Published Author
  • Results-Oriented
3) Tailored presentation to match audience, and event.

I invest time upfront to understand the organization's needs and ensure that I am prepared for current, or the most relevant topics subject to discussion or debate. Preparation enhances follow-on Question & Answer sessions.

Speaking engagements can be from an hour to multi-day training events, including keynote speakers. Modules to choose from are:

  1. Power of Diversity (Management Module)
  2. Myths and Power of Diversity (General Audiences)
  3. Team Integration (General Audiences)
  4. Religious Similarities
  5. Leadership
  6. Tools and Tips for Effective Integration
  7. Global Diversity Management and Customs

Depending on time allotted, each of these modules can include:

  • Role-playing
  • Experiental Learning
  • Group Exercises

If other speakers will be in attendance, I reach out to build momentum and collective synergy for the event.

4) Personal promotion of organization's desires
Where appropriate, I will promote the organization's activities and results in my own circles, websites, blog, shared calendars, message boards and social networks - with organizer's approval - which enhances your organization's exposure in the marketplace and in some cases can help increase attendance at the event.

5) Dependability and Preparedness
Materials are shipped in advance and setup/familiarization with audio visual equipment is handled in advance also. In the rare event that unexpected technical challenges arise such as Internet availability, computer speed, projector malfunctions, etc., I can continue delivery without interruption. If schedule changes occur, I can accommodate these in most cases, with advance notice.

6) Personal engagement with the audience before and after the event.
I always get to know as many people as possible at any event. Discussions on ALL topics are welcome on the many one-on-one engagements. Pictures and autographs are always extended, when requested.

7) Guarantee
Your audience must be completely satisfied, more informed and ready to implement at least three new strategies. If not, a 50% refund of monies paid will be refunded. Offer expires 30 days from speaking date.

Speaking Conferences are available in Spanish too!

Your leadership and drive are clearly evident in these outstanding scores. I have never seen the VA give such high scores out of the shoot - unprecedented... thanks again for all you do.
Sean Murphy, T-Rex Corporation COO
(February 2016)

What an amazing conference! And thank you for your contributions in the form of your outstanding presentation. Our side-bar discussions were both enjoyable and enlightening too. Any discussion of diversity has the potential of being very controversial. Your discussion of diversity, however, put the topic in a very positive light without sugar-coating. It was believable and in so being it was highly beneficial. Your discussion of your personal past and your perspectives as your career developed was the quid essential piece that made your presentation both engaging and believable and thus provided the conduit to be impactful.
