Richard Pimentel is a nationally renowned expert on Disability Management, Job Recruitment, Job Retention, Americans with Disabilities Act, and Attitude Change. He is not only technically proficient, he is also an exceptional communicator whose audiences praise his ability to combine information, humor, metaphor, analogy and storytelling into an informative whole that does not just present the information, but really communicates it in a memorable fashion. For over two decades, Richard Pimentel has arguably been North America's most predominant spokesperson for the employment of people with disabilities as the author of the highly acclaimed WINDMILLS attitudinal training program.
