Dick has presented Mom, Dad...Can We Talk? Family Conversations That Make a Difference as Our Parents Grow Older to over 115 audiences of appreciative adult children across the country, and to professionals in service to older persons and their families.
"Dick, just wanted to drop a quick note and tell you how much I appreciated your talk today... Thank you for coming and particularly for the love you have for this calling. It is a blessing for many people. I could just see it in the people that attended today."
"Your presentation was exceptional; I could have listened to your stories all afternoon."
"Our audience was totally absorbed in your humorous, enlightening, and heart touching address...positive feedback from attendees on how valuable your comments were to them personally...totally engaged in your story telling style.. We can all relate to the real life events you so eloquently described....Your ideas and suggestions were indispensable!"
"Dick’s presentation was forthright, yet thoughtful and humorous...Not only was the evening inspirational for all who attended, it was in many ways a relief to many to hear that they were not alone in their journey and the challenges being faced."
"Mr. Edwards' presentation kept the audience listening intently throughout... His style of presentation makes all comfortable... Attendees are still talking about the "excellent, excellent" presentation ..."
