Introducing Colorado Governor Bill Ritter at the 2007 Apollo Alliance Summit

For the past twenty five years, Richard has been connecting people and ideas. Creating events that bring people together to explore cutting edge socioeconomic, environmental, energy and political issues is an on-going passion and skill. These hands-on conferences, seminars, summits, policy forums and fundraisers are designed to be experiential and results-oriented. They have one theme in common: convening forward thinking people to accelerate progressive social and economic change.

As my friend, political strategist Dan Carol noted, 'Richard is a man who stirs many drinks'. My network of leading business, environmental, labor, social justice, venture capital, foundation, academic and political leaders guarantees a brilliant exchange of ideas and possibilities. My services include: sculpting the agenda, moderating the program, recruiting speakers, securing sponsors and ensuring the participants find common ground.
