Meet the Upward Enterprises Staff – Larry Riggs

Larry attended his Upward Enterprises (UEI) first ropes course in 1999 and was hooked on Maryland team building and Maryland corporate retreats. He immediately recognized the value of experiential education and began organizing groups for team building Maryland events several times a year. After a few years of hiring facilitators for his groups, he finally decided to go through the training himself and become a certified facilitator. Since becoming a UEI facilitator in 2004, Larry has logged nearly 5,000 hours working with groups on team building in Maryland, group dynamics, effective communication, leadership and more.
