"Dick Grote combines a unique blend of experience, education, and an engaging
personality that goes to the heart of his message through his presentations. Dick’s appearance
received overwhelming positive comments.
He is a rare individual who is easy to work with, intensely inquisitive, a great story teller with a dry wit who blends the
knowledge of “old school” while having moved gracefully into the “modern classroom”. A true
entertainer with substantive credentials."

word. We have received letters and phone calls from our managers saying that they could not remember a better
or more relevant speaker for management development.
We want to thank you for more than the extraordinary presentation, though, because it was the ease and comfort of
working with Grote Consulting that really made the day for us. When we recommend a speaker to our managers, we all go on
the line with the speaker. What an easy bet this was!"
