"Ricardo is a notable speaker for many reasons, on the one hand he prepares the subjects very well and treats them with the required seriousness and depth to make it credible and intelligible, on the other hand, he gets close to his audiences, almost like he feels them, adapting the speech and the subject to the most appropriate tone and that actually causes more impact and emotion in the people who are always attentive following him. In our Strategic Management Program the main focus was to work on corporate culture and emphasize the virtues of multi-cultural teams and strategies to mitigate the difficulties in managing them, calling it "Business Culture and Prejudice". We had testimonies of colleagues who told us that the speech had transformed them and that they would have avoided many difficulties if they had heard it before."

“Ricardo Vargas’ speeches are just as enthusiastic as they are motivating. They involve us, work with our weak points, force us to question ourselves and lastly, they encourage our team to seek excellence. The impact of the partnership with Vorwerk produced visible benefits both in terms of leadership and motivation. This has been reflected in an unbelievable 300% growth in our company in four years.”

"I loved the short training sessions between the theory parts, so we could immediately try the things we have learned. The new structure for a presentation was so easy to implement that I improved in my second presentation so much, I could not believe it. Story and position were the very important learnings for me. You will learn presentation skills which, seeming to be obvious, in the sum of all small improvements give you the chance to transform to a new level of speaking."

"By the end of the first minute of a keynote speech Ricardo Vargas has captured the audience, which is just amazing. But even more than his great communication skills, I value the way in which he transmits the concepts of change and behavioral change. His impact is so high that people later use his metaphors and concepts as if they were their own. This is the best validation for the transmission of a concept I have ever seen."

"Ricardo's keynote speeches are always timely and naturally effective. Ricardo is always careful to assess the clients' needs, working and adapting his speech to his audience. People identify and recognize themselves in many of the stories he shares, the solutions presented are timely, applicable and therefore motivating to those attending his keynote speeches. I consider him an excellent speaker, technically very good. I attended his last keynote speech on "The Science of Hope"."
