Nationally known, Uniqueness Curator, Motivational Speaker, Author, and Life Strategist, Rick Clemons, safely creates space for audiences to CONFIDENTLY embrace their UNIQUENESS in the world. "Dig your UNIQUENESS," he says. "After all, science has already proven we're 99% alike in our DNA, which basically gives us a hall pass to go exploit our UNIQUENESS without shame!"
Experiential in nature, Rick's talks are verbal works of art that guide listeners into the possibilities where "Sameness be damned" is a rally cry that frees and leads to untethered success. Rick takes you to the party, the pulpit, the wake and back to the party as he masterfully guides you through stories layered with sincere determination, contemplative and curious inquiries into "What if's…," and whimsical observations of the human experience.
With sassy, yet sincere guidance, Rick takes audiences, teams, maybe even wedding guests, into the inspired playground of being naturally who we are…CONFIDENT, UNIQUE humans, just as we are!
For 6 years Rick's been inspiring individuals and audiences alike to come out their closets and revolt against the pressure to hide the parts of themselves that others don't want them to show, just to make others more comfortable. From experiential team building workshops, to inspiring keynotes, and intimate celebrations (like LGBTQ Weddings), Rick playfully and strategically invites people to dig into their UNIQUENESS drawers and closets to pull out what is begging to be activated or more purposefully integrated into their lives, their work, and shared with the planet.
Rick knows the hard work of being true to one's self, and stepping CONFIDENTLY into his UNIQUENESS. He came out as a gay man at 38, with a wife and two kids. That monumental transition placed him on an soul-centered path to do the work he does today - Motivational Speaker, Life Strategist, Podcaster (Coming Out Lounge, Uniquely You), blogger (Huffington Post, Your Tango). He's proven to those he's had the privilege to speak in front of and work with intimately, his talent and expertise to guide people, regardless of sexuality, out of hiding, even if what they are hiding is their own brilliant UNIQUENESS.
