Public Speaking

Power Point Presentations

Richard P. Smith has spent a lifetime in the outdoors studying, photographing and hunting a variety of game animals and birds. Most of his time has been spent learning about whitetail deer and black bear, but he’s also well versed on other wildlife such as moose, elk, snowshoe hare and grouse. Richard is an expert on wildlife tracks and sign. He’s an excellent speaker and is well known for his Power Point presentations on a variety of topics.

Richard’s wife, Lucy, also does presentations on wildlife, living with an outdoor writer, managing stress, expressing uniqueness, book publishing and marketing, and life in general. Whereas, Richard uses photography, Lucy uses humor, common experiences and universal truths to connect to her audiences.
