"I have had the pleasure of working with Jim Rittenhouse for 15 years and I can honestly say there is no one better in the business. I have worked with large talent firms across the country and nothing they offer can compare to R2 Impact. Jim’s professionalism, integrity and loyalty to his clients make him the only choice for me when it comes to securing speakers and talent for my events. Jim takes a personal interest in his clients and their needs and he makes finding the right talent for their needs his number one priority. Over the years Jim has secured such names as Pat Summitt, Gladys Knight, Helen Hunt, Amy Grant and many others for the Northwest Arkansas Business Women’s Conference. Jim’s ability to help us bring in top names is one of the reasons our event has grown to be the largest event of its kind in the region. I trust Jim’s instincts and his candor when it comes to finding the right speakers for us and in 15 years he has never let me down. If you are looking for someone to help navigate the details of securing talent and finding that perfect fit for your organization, Jim is THE person."

"I have worked with Jim Rittenhouse since 2007 when we were looking for entertainment for our annual customer appreciation event. Since then, he has helped find fun and talented individuals and groups for our event. Jim is a delight to work with and takes the time to listen to our needs before making recommendations. We have never been disappointed in the entertainment he has recommended. Working with Jim has certainly made planning our annual event less stressful because I can count on him coming through for us. I look forward to working with Jim again as we plan for our next customer appreciation event!"
