“I’ve seen Rudy speak on multiple occasions and beyond the knowledge he brings to the subject, he also brings a lot of life and humor. He has a lot of real-world experience and that comes through in wise, funny anecdotes that help convey his message. He had 200 of us laughing out loud for nearly an hour in Houston when he gave the keynote at the WAHC.”
