With a 40-year career as a professional speaker,speaking before more than 3 million people live and countless others on radio and TV. I am best at connecting with people. I speak to audiences of all sizes from three up to 30,000, and yet all I see is a room full of individuals, each one of which has their own needs and wants. It is my job to get their attention (and hold it) by giving them something easy they can use NOW and make it a relevant, permanent part of their life. I use my experience and knowledge through motivational/inspirational topics as well as business and disability awareness presentations. I use humor to get my points across and keep my audiences entertained as well as informed. I tell is like it is, and am one of those people who is WYSIWYG – What You See Is What You Get. My services as a speaker are available on short notice – 24 hours per day, 365 days per year. Visit the web page for information about the programs offered, prices and terms.
“Whatever that elusive ‘it’ might be we collectively seek, Ric Morgan has found ‘it’. I am amazed at his ability to take complex roadblocks to success and offer simple, easy to understand solutions that can be implemented easily and immediately. Ric offers an easy, step-by-step approach. He is a consummate public speaker, motivator and teacher whose ability is to communicate to his listeners the simple keys of life. Pay attention to this man…” Don McCauley, Business Executive and Radio Host
(An excerpt of a presentation of the Keep It Simple and Smart philosophy.)
Ric has been fortunate in winning awards both as a speaker and writer. He has also been an actor, broadcaster and has created and owned a number of businesses and was also the founder of three nonprofit organizations. He currently lives in Gatlinburg, Tennessee, at the edge of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. The holder of two doctoral degrees, he has been listed in a number of Who’s Who editions, Europe’s Men of Achievement, and will soon appear in the next edition of Contemporary Authors.
Besides Keep It Simple and Smart, I have written two other books and edited an anthology of short stories. My first book is called The Train Of Tomorrow, published by Indiana University Press. The 200+ page book is the history of the GM Train of Tmorrow from conception, through design and development, building, and touring of the Train, until it was destroyed in the mid-1960’s. The second book, 1,001 Things to Worry About was published in August 2012, as was a book of short stories called The Bedtime Reader: Volume 1, The Classics Tales, that contains stories by such authors as Mark Twain, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, Stephen Crane, P.G. Wodehouse and many others. The 400-page book will keep you entertained for my many hours, and is good as a reader for travel and not just bedtime.

Take the Parkway in Gatlinburg South to Ski Mountain Road (Light 10). Turn RIGHT. Pass through the first traffic light (River Road) and cross the bridge. As the road curves to the LEFT there is a motel on the left called GRAND PRIX MOTEL. Behind the motel is a street called OWNBY STREET. Turn LEFT. As you make the turn there is a gray apartment building on the right called the C&C Apartments. There is a parking space in front of the building, next to the stone wall. Walk uphill to the glassed-in porch. Come into the porch and my apartment is #1.
