(To learn more about our university, visit us at www.saybrook.edu. )
Today’s episode is also our inaugural episode for our podcast reboot and was recorded one year ago during the height of our 50th-anniversary proceedings. We feature alumnus Dr. Frederick or Rick Gilbert (1977). Rick and I had the pleasure of meeting early in my presidency, becoming fast friends. He has led a rich and amazing life, much of it informed by his Ph.D. work at Saybrook University. Carmen and I dig into his history, the secret of his many successes, and his overall joi de vivre. This colorful interview in which I am joined by Carmen Bowen is a must-listen: Rick’s inspiring and beautiful articulation of his life’s work was truly a joy to witness.
A little bit more about Rick: He is the founder of PowerSpeaking, Inc., a speech communication training company in Redwood City. With its highly skilled trainers and facilitators, PSI delivers over 300 programs a year nationally and around the world.
Before starting his own company, Rick held quality improvement and communications management positions with Hewlett Packard and Amdahl corporations in Silicon Valley.
Rick's coaching of over 200 senior-level executives led to the creation of the award-winning training program: Speaking Up: Presenting to Executives. His best-selling book, “Speaking Up: Surviving Executive Presentations” was published by Berrett-Koehler and can be found on Amazon. We’ve also included a link in the episode notes along with his newest audiobook Sharing Our Stories: Tales of Resilience and Renewal.
Rick holds a PhD in humanistic psychology from Saybrook University.
