    - Mr. David Jones (Vice President of Advancement and Community Relations & Executive Director of the ACM Foundation; Allegany College of Maryland)
  • “Keyser Primary School was honored to have Master Rick Rando visit and speak with our entire student body. He did a wonderful job with his lively, engaging presentations of Stranger Safety and the ‘5 Keys to Succeed!’ His interactions with the students were priceless and the students really enjoyed his enthusiasm and how much he truly cared about the things they had to say. Since his presentation, many of our students and teachers have been practicing some of his key points including being ‘fire-starters’ instead of ‘energy-suckers,’ showing a ‘Level 10’ posture, and going out of their way to show kindness to others. We can’t wait to have Master Rando back at KPS!”

    - Mrs. Ashley Steckman (Title I Reading Specialist)
  • “Master Rando visited Frankfort High School in the spring of 2017, speaking to our 9th-11th grades. His message on ‘Empowering Oneself’ was amazing. Knowing who you are and being true to yourself was one key point that hit home quickly with our student body. Being a ‘fire-starter’ and not an ‘energy-sucker’ was a stand-out component that was quite powerful as well. Extinguishing entitlement was another avenue that led to…‘no one is entitled to anything…working hard is what gets you to where you want to be.’ And finally, the one characteristic that resonated with our faculty and students at FHS was serving others. In the words of Master Rando: ‘Success follows those who serve others.’

    This man kept the audience enthralled and focused during his entire presentation. He used anecdotes, a bit of comedy, and personal experiences to share his message with the students and pique their interest. In fact, you could hear a pin drop when he was storytelling. His message was positive and uplifting for young adults; and our hope is that Master Rando’s content will help change lives, one student at a time.”

    - Mrs. Kelly R. Haines (Assistant Principal)
  • “Keynote Speaker Master Rick Rando engaged and motivated our team members throughout our annual Pennsylvania/Maryland Safety Team Summit for Columbia Gas. Communicating the importance of dedication, persistence, and hard work, Master Rando’s electricity and motivational words inspired our personnel to focus on their safety awareness efforts and take our corporate safety performance to new levels. Columbia Gas, a Division of NiSource, would recommend Master Rando to any organization or group that wishes to challenge their people to be team players rather unengaged underachievers. The feedback we received from the event was entirely positive and every single employee in the room left excited to conquer any challenge that lies ahead. I strongly advocate Master Rick Rando’s presentation to anyone who is ready to improve themselves, both personally and on the job”.

    - Mr. Kerry Puffinburger (HS&E Coordinator)
  • “My leaders left challenged and inspired to raise the bar at my business.  Master Rick Rando’s fun and thoughtful approach to teaching leadership principles that matter, was exactly what we needed to take our performance to the next level.  Thank you for your attention to excellence Master Rando…you are definitely a ‘fire-starter!’”
