What Our Partners Have to Say
A collection of feedback I have received from organizations with whom I have had the fortune and privilege to collaborate.
Richard brings innovative and delightful programming to the library every time we partner with him. Working with Richard is relished by the staff and attendees alike. Each time I’ve been fortunate enough to be present for one of his programs I find myself as drawn in and mesmerized as are the attendees to which he presents. Richard’s passion for every program subject he proposes instills that same thirst for knowledge in all who are lucky enough to attend.
Pauline Noomnam, Teenzone Librarian
Richard was very professional and great with the kids and their parents. He had kids and parents smiling and laughing during the program. We would love to have him back for another program and can’t wait to see what else he comes up with!
Dominique Burns, Children's Programming Librarian
Richard Blake’s performances show that he is passionate and works very hard to engage, teach, and entertain with the utmost professionalism. Richard incorporated demonstrations, video clips, and educational information and successfully had all of the attendees’ attention the entire presentation.
Alicia Gomori, Children's Programming Librarian
Children, teens and adults were all captivated from start to finish. Richard includes interesting equipment that enhances the program and he engages the audience with discussion and questions making it an interactive experience. Richard was very professional and reliable and I highly recommend his innovative programming.
Shannon Smith, Teaching Librarian
Richard brought the world of Doctor Who alive for patrons and encouraged them to create their own characters in clever and unique ways. Richard’s presentation is a fun and interactive introduction to the world of fan fiction. We received positive feedback from the event, with patrons enjoying the unique topic and interactive aspects of the workshop. We would definitely work with Richard again on another writing or science-based workshop.
