The Mayberry Method by Rik Roberts

Once the group is engaged, Rik steps out of character and delivers a speech about 1) Increasing productivity by eliminating distractions, 2) Managing time more effectively, and 3) Setting clearer goals.

Recent Reviews from Iowa
Ercolina International Sales Meeting in Davenport, IA
Rik Roberts (aka Barney Fife) spoke for CML USA, Inc. at our International Sales Meeting. We had representatives from Italy, Canada, Portugal and the U.S. After a full day of being served very technical information, our representatives enjoyed being able to relax and enjoy his performance. Rik's business message was clear and on point, and his very entertaining comedy routine had everyone in stitches from beginning to end. We wanted something light and entertaining yet informative for our sales professionals. From fun "citations" a the beginning to allowing photos to be taken with Barney, Rik Roberts provided exactly what we were looking for!
Fundraising Dinner in Sully, IA
David Ferrell was very professional to work with. He was prompt, personable, and funny! Our guests enjoyed his comedy and there was plenty of laughter to go around! He kept his jokes clean and appropriate for our group, which was a tough crowd of older more conservative attendees. It was evident that he spent time learning about our small town before his performance to help make the show more relevant to his crowd. Both before and after the show he took time to speak with guests and share more of his story as well as listen. We had a great night.
Annual Meeting in Davenport, IA
Jerry Carroll had the entire audience in tears with his funny stories!!
Fundraising Banquet in Bettendorf, IA
Rik Roberts was very funny. He had the crowd engaged and laughing throughout his entire performance and his Barney impersonation was a big hit.
Grower Meeting in Mt Pleasant, IA
Jerry Carroll did a wonderful job at our grower meeting. He stayed in touch with me in the days leading up to the presentation, and arrived in a timely fashion. The audience certainly enjoyed him, and our company is very happy with the job he did.
Northwest Iowa Ag Outlook Conference in Spencer, IA
Wow -- where to start? Jerry Carroll met and exceeded my expectations. He was very easy to work with and very thoughtful. Jerry attended the Vendor Reception on Monday night - networking with the vendors and getting to know our committee and the surrounding area. On Tuesday, Jerry arrived early at the venue and walked around networking with the vendors; meeting the public and attending the speaker before Jerry - Iowa Agriculture Secretary, Bill Northey. Everyone I have talked to that attended Jerry Carroll's presentation have told me nothing but great things about his presentation. Jerry staying up on what is happening in Agriculture and Business in other parts of the US - and not just his home state is what impressed me. He very much so has his homework done to relate to his audience. Jerry also dressed correctly - he did not try to out dress the audience. Jerry's audience was farmers and farm related business people mainly and he dressed to relate to them - this was wonderful! After Jerry's presentation and before he left I was very touched that he came to find me to thank me and give me a hug. I would recommend Jerry to anyone.

You made it very easy!! The website is informational as well as the information provided. Thanks!! We'll use you again!

Employee Appreciation event in Clear Lake, IA
Jerry Carroll showed up on time and very quickly became one of us before the show. He kept the show clean and was able to relate to the crowd very well. His material was all good with a pretty large percentage of it improvised and custom to our group which I think really helped the show. Jerry also stuck around for a while after the show and visited with some of the audience which I think people really appreciated. I would recommend Jerry Carroll to anyone.
