- 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.
