If you are looking for a unique and fun educational speaker, Dr. Ron Shapiro is your go-to guy. We've had the pleasure of seeing several of Ron's events and walked away laughing and more knowledgeable for it! His engagement with the audience - and the children in attendance - was exceptional . . . and the activities he used in his program were intriguing. We look forward to attending another event of Ron's soon! (Barbara Heathcote, Human Resources, Raleigh, North Carolina)
