Redefining the art and
science of public speaking

"Richard Greene is the best idea guy in America"

Called "The Master of Charisma" by The Sunday Times of London, Communication Strategist Richard Greene's focus is to help re-define the way we look at the world.

After working with Tony Robbins to help him launch his career in the mid-80s, Richard left his law practice to re-define human beings' greatest fear, Public Speaking. For the past 36 years he has done this through his prestigious coffee table book, "Words That Shook The World", in over 100 lecture tours in 53 countries on 6 continents, giving Keynote Addresses on "The 7 Secrets of Public Speaking", conducting workshops and private sessions for Presidents, Prime Ministers, Presidential Candidates, Senators, Governors, CEOs and even Princess Diana, being Communication Strategist on 10 Presidential/Prime Ministerial campaigns in 9 countries, serving as the Senior Judge in TLC's television series, "The Messengers" and with his TED Talk, "The 7 Secrets of The Greatest Speakers in History" with over 3.1 million views.

Richard presents his book, "Words That Shook The World: 100 Years of Unforgettable Speeches and Events" to His Holiness The 14th Dalai Lama

For three years, Richard's radio show, "Hollywood CLOUT!" helped re-define politics and make it more accessible by showcasing major celebrities and their political, environmental and philanthropic passions. A former Congressional Candidate and Fellow at The Constitutional Rights Foundation, Richard is passionate about having every American understand "Civics" and exercising their right to vote. To make it fun and easy he has re-defined and "gamified" what is normally a boring topic and even condensed "everything you need to know to be excited about voting" into a single "Magic Number of America"!

And his children's book, "E=MC2 and The New Definition of God" seeks to create a science based 21st Century understanding of the Universe that can be relevant to atheists and believers alike and help unify the world's religions.

In addition to his most popular Keynote, "The Art & Science of Charisma: The 7 Secrets of Public Speaking", Richard speaks on "The 4 Languages of Human Communication", "The New Definition of Listening", "Bringing America Together Through A New Definition of Civics" and "Re-Defining The World: The New 21st Century Definitions of Life, Death, God, Economics, Justice and Public Speaking".
