An Outstanding Facilitator and Motivational Speaker

Rico and Centaur Consulting provided my organization with extraordinary service. We needed someone outside of the organization to assist us in determining the concerns of our employee population. Mr. Correia came in and presented a workshop to our employees and was able to engage them in, not only discussions about their concerns, but discussions about what we may do as an organization to better serve our employees for a more productive work environment. His presentation style was fun and engaging, material was comprehensive, and follow up was consistent and effective. Rico is an outstanding facilitator and resource for addressing major workforce issues. I highly recommend him for your next employee engagement or executive team building workshop or keynote address.
