“Every company, if you’re not investing in emotional intelligence training in some shape or form, you’re leaving millions on the table, period.”

In this episode of True Grit and Grace, host Amberly Lago is joined by her good friend Rich Bracken. Rich is an internationally acclaimed  thought leader, television and media contributor, consultant and keynote speaker on emotional intelligence, leadership, motivation, and business differentiation through client experience and branding .

His natural flare for entertainment as a media personality, national touring DJ, and former event planner allows him to bring a different level of entertainment to his content. Combined with his passion for servant leadership and competitive drive as a former college football player, you are hard pressed to find someone who prioritizes his clients’ happiness, growth, and success as much as he genuinely does.

Rich shares practical insights on how to enhance our lives and build stronger relationships. The conversation is lively, empowering, and informative.
