GET UPDATES FROM Richard Greene
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.

Over the past 30 years Richard, a former attorney, has re-defined human beings' greatest fear, Public Speaking, in his prestigious coffee table book, "Words That Shook The World", in over 100 lecture tours in 47 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 and serving as the Senior Judge in TLC's television series, "The Messengers". www.RichardGreene.org

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.

And his upcoming 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 unify the world religions. www.TheNewDefinitionofGod.com

When he is not traveling, Richard lives in Los Angeles.
