"Rich Austin has recently helped me to clarify my business message, helped me to outline the specific results I offer, designed a visual flow chart of how my services work, and crafted my introduction for networking etc. Rich really went above and beyond in our meetings and didn't stop there. With a clear understanding of what I do, who my clients are and who my networks are he has kept my services in mind throughout his own networking efforts and has introduced me to wonderful local professionals to help me build my sphere. Working with Rich has been a tremendously useful, informative, entertaining, and effective experience. Rich provides a much needed service for business owners trying to truly define or even freshen up and clarify their message and introductions. I imagine some if not many entrepreneurs come to you not yet fully clear on these issues, which is fundamental for effective marketing. For those who consult you and don't quite have it all figured out yet, I highly recommend Rich Austin's services. He also started a Meet-Up group called Smooth Talkers where we have fun, practice and learn public speaking tips for those business owners who aspire to do public speaking."

“After my first session with Rich, I could already see significant improvements. Our initial project was developing my “elevator speech” but it also gave me valuable insight into how to craft my message in various ways. He also assisted me in refining a presentation that I had given about a year ago to a group of medical professionals such that this year’s presentation to a similar group was infinitely more effective. Rich is supportive, encouraging, and always ready with a helpful suggestion. He inspires confidence, and I highly endorse his skills & talents.”

"Rich Austin is known as the best person to turn to when planning a business campaign. Starting with planning the campaign to creating the key campaign messages to developing the content used in social media channels and for the company website, he has repeatedly shown that he is an expert at making a business campaign stand out. In addition to his success with digital campaigns, he is known as a public speaking expert who is sought after for Master of Ceremonies roles because he attracts a crowd. When asked to produce live, in-person events, due to his long career and extensive network of associates, he is able to identify and attract keynote speakers as well as arrange all the necessary support services like publicity, photography, set-up staff and full food and beverage services. My experience is that Rich Austin produces both digital and in-person campaigns that are memorable and result in lasting business success. "

Podcast Coach and Consultant
"I was just raving about you to my web designer the other day saying how I used a business coach last year as a desperate attempt to jolt my business so I could be more independent …and it was a total disappointment and waste of money. I felt worse about my business and felt like I was working even harder and not in the right area… the hamster wheel with no effect. I cut that relationship short at any rate. I couldn’t be more pleased working with you. Our work together is EXACTLY what I need and was hoping to get while working with the business coach which I didn’t get anything remotely close to any more clarity or productivity. So THANK YOU for all that you do!"
