About Richard

Keynote speaker Richard Doss is an experience just waiting to happen! 

See what sets Richard apart from the rest…

He’s not your typical motivational keynote speaker.

Richard motivates audiences by telling GREAT STORIES that make the point while engaging the audience! He makes it feel like you’re having a one-on-one conversation.

He’s honest-to-goodness funny!

Richard's humor allows him to tackle even the toughest issues Commanders face with substance and style. His contagious sense of humor enables your audience to talk about things they previously suppressed or ignored. He creates a safe, comfortable, and confidential environment.

Richard is all about connecting with Soldiers and Veterans to show them the path to healing.

Most keynote speakers simply teach audiences WHAT to do.  A few speakers show audiences HOW to do it. Richard does all that and MORE.  He helps Soldiers understand WHY it’s important to change behaviors, re-think attitudes, re-assess old ideas and get on board so they can face the past, fight depression, overcome trauma, and conquer the future!

Richard gives the word CUSTOMIZATION a whole new meaning.

As a former Suicide Prevention Program Manager for 13,000 Soldiers in 26 states, Richard understands how Soldiers and Veterans are trained to think. His insight from years of experience exploring Military life with Service Men and Women will have each person in the audience feeling like he is talking directly to them. He knows the road that Soldiers and Veterans travel. It is rare for a speaker to have that ability to connect in such a meaningful way—and it’s that connection that keeps his message alive long after the event is over.

Richard is down-to-earth and REAL!

Audiences believe in him and trust that he has their safety and healing in mind at all times.  Richard knows that people want, expect and deserve their speaker to be a REAL person sharing REAL solutions that can help them achieve REAL relief.
