With speaking engagements in over 30 countries on six continents, rock-and-roll roadie turned entrepreneur Richard Mulholland knows the impact that memorable presentations can make firsthand. For one, he’s the founder of presentation powerhouse Missing Link, as well as the co-founder of 21Tanks, HumanWrit.es and The Sales Department. He also has three great books under his belt such as Legacide, Boredom Slayer, and Story Seller.
