Have you ever met a person whose thinking was stuck in a rut?
Have you ever heard a speaker give a boring speech and think, “I wish I could speak; I know I could do better than that?”
Have you ever been passed over for a promotion because someone else was more convincing and influential with the boss than you were?
If you answered, “Yes,” to any of the questions above, then you’ve come to the right place!
Hi! I’m Richard C. Harris, M.Min., M.A., Ed.D., a communicator with a powerful message and stories that audiences will never hear from anyone else.
In the 1970s, I was the leader of the largest underground terrorist organization in the Midwestern United States, largely due to my ability to think, speak, and persuade. After a dramatic transformation, I denounced the terrorist group and went on a quest for truth and justice.
Twenty years ago, Purdue University invited me to join their faculty to teach public speaking and persuasion. Now, the lead professor for speech at Southeastern University in Florida, I continue to impact students, pastors, and business professionals, coaching and educating them in speech structure, content, and delivery, creative thinking techniques, and persuasive tactics that will prepare them for success in the workplace.
I want to do the same for you!
An award-winning author, I was honored to receive the 2012 Readers Favorite Award for best nonfiction religious/philosophy book, One Nation Under Curse, which details my time spent as a terrorist leader and the amazing transformation that put me back on the right path again.
