I understand the challenge of coordinating and hosting a conference that will add value to your participants. I serve on conference committees myself and I am fully aware that quality speakers are the upmost importance to the success of your event. Like you, I want the events I plan to be memorable, so I spend countless hours deciding on great topics to include in my events and even more time finding the right speakers to fit into my theme for the event. I’ve been in your shoes and want to help you make your event a huge success and would be honored to be a part of it.

Thanks for stopping by and considering me. I look forward to speaking with you!

WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT

1. A pleasant planning experience. My job is to enhance your event, not hinder it. You are busy and I respect your time, my goal is to always meet and exceed your expectations as you are planning your event.

2. Immediate response to all your queries before, during and after the event.

3. Prompt, professional, and dynamic presentation that will uplift and energize your audience.

4. Follow-up communication to make sure I met your expectations. I will also want your feedback to find out how I can improve!

MY MOST REQUESTED TOPICS

The World Belongs to The Encourager

- Keynote

Life is hard and challenging, especially with change as our constant companion; however, there is one relationship tool that will never become obsolete, "Encouragement.” In this motivational talk, I share a compelling real-world story of rags to riches and will invite the audience to embrace the idea of becoming an encourager and show them why it’s their greatest investment for success.

Why Becoming a Person of Influence Should Be Your #1 Priority

- Keynote

One cannot achieve anything of significance without the help of others. That’s why it’s paramount to gain buy-in from others to achieve true success. My premise in this talk is that the success in your life is proportional to the influence you have with others and that your influence is the result of your “vibe” and how you leverage your influence through times of change and conflict.

Lead Without Speaking – The Importance of Nonverbal Communication

- Keynote, Workshop, Breakout Session, Pre/Post Conference Seminar

Solid communication skills are paramount if you desire to gain buy-in from your colleagues, leadership, friends, and family; however, your words are only part of your communication repertoire. I leverage my skills and training as a special investigator during my time serving as a Military Police Officer in Europe to teach body language interpretation and techniques.

The Key Accounts Management Roadmap to Success

- Workshop, Certification, Breakout Session, Pre/Post Conference Seminar

Public power is the secret sauce that adds tremendous value to a business community, which is why a solid and principle driven key accounts program is critical to ensure long term success. I use my experience as a former key accounts representative and from the American Public Power Association book I co-authored, The Key Accounts Field Manual, to teach and train utility staff and leadership on how to build and maintain a solid, long-lasting key accounts program.

WHAT OTHERS ARE SAYING

“Erick’s speaker evaluation ratings are among the highest I’ve ever seen for a conference speaker!”

“The best keynote speaker we’ve ever had in my 14 years. Working with Erick and his team couldn’t have been easier or more helpful. True professionals.”

“Awesome presenter! Extremely engaging!”

“FANTASTIC – so engaging! Yup, could very well be the best public speaker I’ve ever heard!”

“Seriously – get Erick to come back again! FANTASTIC story telling!”

“His is a wonderfully engaging speaker. He gave me a lot to think about and realize my path both on a work and personal level.”

“This was a great overview of what different body language really means. I’m excited to read the book!”

“FANTASTIC! Erick nailed this presentation!”

“I cannot express how much I enjoyed Erick’s presentations.  His energy and enthusiasm is infectious and inspiring!”

“Every year, our planning committee works to develop valuable sessions for
our attendees and every year, Erick’s name comes up as a requested speaker.”

“Erick provided a captivating talk and left my participants wanting more! My only regret is that I didn’t give him more time.”

“Erick was responsive, pleasant to work with, and delivered on everything he promised at our conference. I would highly recommend him to any event planner considering him for an event!”

“I’ve had the pleasure of experiencing Erick’s presentations and would highly recommend him for your event.  He has a unique ability to capture an audience’s attention and deliver a message that resonates long after the event is over.”

“Erick is committed to his craft and works hard to deliver and exceed expectations. I’ve had the pleasure to work with him on his speaking career and have watched him grow into a true professional.”

“Erick’s presentations were the highest rated sessions we’ve ever had at our conference with 95%, 5-star ratings. We’ve never had a presenter connect so well with our audience.”

“Erick Rheam is extremely effective in his teaching techniques. He performs with such virility that you come out of his course feeling like you can accomplish anything you set your mind to. Working in communications I am always asking myself if Im at my personable best so that I can portray that to the people I am surrounded by. Erick shared a few different techniques to make positive connections.”

“Erick’s nonverbal communication workshop was captivating, informative, interesting and practical.”

“Effective communication is vital to be successful in the workplace today. While we often associate communicating with just talking, in reality, truly effective communication is much more than that. It involves understanding all the messages being sent in the room, many of which are visual. Erick’s program opened my eyes to all the communication cues we can use to not only become a great communicator and advance our organizations, but also to advance in our own careers.”

“Erick is full of energy and truly engages with the audience. You can tell by looking around the room that people are really listening to him. We have had him speak at more than one event because he spends a significant amount of time preparing and provides useful takeaways.”

“I especially appreciated Erick’s attention to detail, highly organized approach and follow through.  He made everything a breeze for our meeting planner and staff.”

“Erick Rheam was fantastic. He was a highly excited motivational speaker. I appreciate the fact he spoke from his heart. He shared with us that his faith in God was the top of his priorities. I like honesty like that. His message was about compassion and caring, not only for the patients we treat, but for the owner and family as well. I have personally promoted that thought process with my employees from the get-go. A special thanks to TVMA for having him on this year’s program.”

“Erick spoke on his book, Top 10 Life Hacks: A Guide for Next Level Living, and after he finished, he received a standing ovation. Our group was so impressed with him.”

“Erick is an entertaining and informed speaker that will make you think!”

“Erick is very engaging and energetic in his speaking.  He keeps everyone’s interest because you can tell he is passionate about what he’s speaking about.”

“Erick’s presentation isn’t a motivational pep talk; it’s training that equips you with tools you can immediately put to use at work, at home, or frankly anywhere you interact with other people!”

“I would highly recommend Erick Rheam as a keynote speaker.  His presentation was entertaining and informational.  He was able to hold our attendees in the palm of his hand while teaching them how to better interact with their employees, customers, and even family members.  His speaking engagements are always a crowd favorite!”

“Erick was excellent to work with. His prompt and clear communication skills were evident from the moment I began working with him. We hired him upon the recommendation of a planner friend and couldn’t be more pleased with his performance. We will definitely consider having him on our program again in the near future.”

“I have asked Erick Rheam to speak and to provide training at numerous events for Missouri River Energy Services (MRES).  Erick always provides solid content with lots of practical takeaways and does so in a very engaging, entertaining, and thoughtful way.  I would highly recommend Erick as a speaker for your next event.”

“Erick unpacks a subject that professionals today frequently fail to embrace. The influence we have; how we gain it, how we grow it, how we utilize it and how that is crucial to our success in today’s fast-paced business environment. Erick conveys one of the most concise, convincing and encouraging messages about wielding influence that I have had the privilege to enjoy.”
