Rich Tiller, President

While studying Agricultural Economics and Sales and Marketing at Purdue University, Rich worked for a direct sales company and became a fan of Zig Ziglar and his messages of hard work and persistence. Rich entered the speaking industry in 1985 and was president of the International Association of Speakers Bureaus at age 27. In 1994, he started his own firm, and has been matchmaking companies and organizations with speakers ever since. Rich is a co-author of the industry’s code of ethics. He lives in Zionsville, Indiana.

Julie Tiller, Vice President

Julie — a Ball State University grad with degrees in Business Education and Dance — taught high school business, choreographed shows, and was a major gifts fundraiser for Indiana University Foundation and Riley Children’s Health. But when her husband Rich formed the Tiller Group, she joined him and never looked back. Working with speakers and event planners combines three things she loves: entertainment, education and helping others. In her spare time, she enjoys golf, live theatre and spending time with friends and family, including her two college-student children.

The Southern Crop Production Association has continuously turned to the Agricultural Speakers Network for their assistance when searching for high-quality speakers who will energize the audience and educate them on subjects that are pertinent to our industry. We have never been disappointed in any of their suggestions.
