About Rick Cram

Consultant, Facilitator, Strategist

Rick was asked several years ago by the Federal Home Loan Bank’s leadership for help because their managers across the U.S. were experiencing unprecedented challenges and needed strategies and skills to more effectively lead themselves and their teams. They knew of Rick’s expertise in leadership, planning, communications, and facilitating highly interactive employee engagement programs.

And so Rick developed (and is writing the book) PLAN TO BE YOUR BEST© …As You Navigate Change.

It’s a framework of strategies and skills based on his experience in these three areas:

In Business…

Rick has consulted for hundreds of companies seeking to navigate or drive positive change, and he’s facilitated of over 1,000 conferences, meetings and motivational events for clients’ employees as well as customers.

After working in leadership positions on all sides of “the business” (agency, client and major media), Rick founded FullSail Strategic Communications in 2002, providing Fortune 1000 and small businesses alike with comprehensive strategic and creative marketing and communication services. Since 2011 he has been serving clients under his brand, Rick Cram – PLAN TO BE YOUR BEST.

In the Community…

As a highly trained facilitator and caregiver for people in personal or professional crisis, Rick has provided support and encouragement for hundreds of people, one-on-one and in small group settings.

In His Life, Altered by…

…one football injury, seven surgeries on his left knee, thirteen incisions, and 40+ years of what it means to be your best when navigating pain.

The latest surgery, a partial revision of a total knee replacement, was in 2019. He’s needed to rebuild his leg several times over, has become an expert on pain management and is writing a PLAN TO BE YOUR BEST video program for people in pain and facing surgery.

Rick enjoys fitness, fishing, music and being on the water every chance he gets.

A Piece of Trivia

The Boston Bruins asked Rick to host their first-ever game show in the Garden to entertain a private audience of 5,000 fans, starring the Bruins players as the contestants. Ask Rick about the hilarious way it ended.
