DAVID B. RICH  -  born in Philadelphia Pennsylvania and a graduate of LaSalle University in Philadelphia, with a BS degree in Business Marketing.  While attending LaSalle I joined the ROTC and received a commission in the United States Army as a Medical Service Corps Officer.  Later I transferred to the United States Air Force / Delaware Air National Guard, where I served as the Medical Service Officer for the 142 Aeromedical Evacuation Squadron (a highly deployable element responsible for providing medical care in the air to injured service members while returning them home from their deployed locations). In 2006 after a decorated career of 26 years, I retired from the Air Force at the rank of Lieutenant Colonel, a senior executive officer.

I am the founder and President of “B. Rich International”, a Motivational Speaking and Training Company.  I have been able to transfer my professional military experience to aiding in the personal and professional Leadership development for individuals and companies.  As a John Maxwell Certified Coach, Teacher and Speaker, I provide Leadership Development Training and Workshops for small and large companies, community profit and non-profit agencies, youth groups and faith based organizations throughout the country.  Through the implementation of Workshops, MasterMind Groups and Seminars, and the application of the John Maxwell’s proven Leadership principles and methods, I will move you and /or your team or organization in the desired direction to reach your goals and raise you and your business to Higher Heights through raising your “Leadership Lid”!

As a Motivational Speaker, I am a member of the Les Brown Speaking Team and in 2007 I was voted as the Oratorical Champion for the Urban Financial Service Coalition (UFSC) and I continue to inspire the lives of youth and professionals encouraging them to follow their “Dreams” and expand their Leadership Potential!

For several years I have pursued my passion for uplifting, inspiring and improving the lives of other.  I have used my own personal challenges and obstacles to fuel my success!  I have learned to systematically orchestrate my life to obtain my personal and professional goals.  Through continued personal development I have been able to assist others in reaching their potential and goals.  I am a very community and civic-minded person serving on the board of the Middletown Chamber of Commerce, a member of Rotary International, Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity and SGI-USA a world Peace organization.  I am the Director of Veterans’ Employment and Training with the US Department of Labor and a Life member with the VFW.  I am a husband and proud father. I believe in walking the walk not simply talking the talk; therefore, both my wife and my children hold me accountable for what I say and do!  I believe as a Leader we have 2 tongues – the tongue in our mouth and the tongue in our shoes – People hear the tongue in our mouth but they Watch the Tongue in our Shoes!”

Leadershipis the foundation of everything and the bases of our levels of Success!  As we improve our personal and organizational Leadership we will increase our overall successes.  Through Workshops, Mastermind Groups and Seminars we can collectively work to create accountability partners while studying, dissecting and implementing the Leadership strategy and methods taught by John Maxwell – we can facilitate positive and profitable change, improve productivity and create the atmosphere that is necessary for effective Leadership.
