At 39, Rich Allen has led a life of constant exploration
and learning. Recently he formed his own company,
The Learning Dynamics Institute, which presents a
variety of seminars and workshops. The Creative
Expression Experience, The Power Workshop,
The Power to Train and Precision
Languaging are some of his latest creations,
combining his previous experience with several innovative
ideas. Over the past five years they have been presented
extensively throughout the United States, Australia
and New Zealand.
Rich Allen graduated Magna cum Laude from Arizona
State University in 1979 with a B.F.A. Degree in Drama,
with emphasis in Directing. He moved to New York City
to explore a life of acting, and starred in several
Off-Broadway productions, including Othello and Neil
Simon's The Good Doctor. The desire for clean air
and sunshine eventually inspired him to move to Hawaii
where he began his teaching career by joining the
staff of Punahou School, one of the top five prep
schools in the United States.
It was while teaching at the high
school level the unique combination of maths and drama
that Rich first entered the training field, leading
weekend workshops for teens focusing on Ropes Course
events and Learning to Learn activities. After four
years in the islands he returned to the mainland to
begin leading training seminars on a full-time basis.
For the last ten years, Rich has
split his time between leading corporate seminars,
creating personal growth workshops for adults, and
directing accelerated learning programmes for teens.
At the Pecos River Learning Center headquarted in
Santa Fe, New Mexico, Rich had the opportunity to
lead value alignment, motivational, and vision development
programmes for companies such as Dupont, AT&T,
General Motors, IBM and Porsche. He worked closely
with Larry Wilson, co-author of The One Minute Sales
Person and owner of the centre, in the creation and
development of these programmes. At various times
he played all roles for them, including Lead Trainer,
Ropes Course Director, and Creativity Facilitator
- a position he personally designed and implemented.
Between corporate experiences,
Rich has been a Director for SuperCamp, a 10-day accelerated
learning programme for teens. As Director, he is responsible
for training the staff, overseeing the entire programme,
and teaching the Life Skills portions of the course,
including the topics of team building, relationship
skills, and communication skills. Rich has also produced
a motivational videotape for SuperCamp, a nationwide
bestselling product. In the summer of 1990 he led
the team that took the SuperCamp programme to new
frontiers, presenting the experience in Moscow, Singapore,
and later in Hong Kong.
While leading programmes on national
and international levels, Rich has not forgotten his
artistic roots. In the summer of 1990 he released
his first solo album - Songs from the Heart - a collection
of material he personally composed. Several of the
songs are ones he uses in the presentations of his
seminar material. In 1991 he went on to create a storytelling
album for children - Observations from the Gentle
Star. Rich narrates four unique tales set to music,
some of which are used to illustrate key points during
his programmes. He is currently at work on his third

Sense, a book which applies marketing principles
to the marketing of people. It attacked much of the

can be a product, an idea, a company or even another

The Future of Your Company Depends on It, was

"Naming something may be the most universal
aspect of being in business. After all, you don't
have to advertise, promote, package, do point-of-sale,
or train for customer sensitivity. You don't even
(perish the thought ...) have to position yourself.
But whether it's your company, division, product,
or service, you do have to call the baby something.
So why not choose a name that works overtime? A name
that actually starts the positioning process ..."
