As a seasoned speaker for Fortune 500/1000 conferences considered on par with Dr. Ken Blanchard, Jim Collins, Tony Robbins and other prominent authors, he’s been lauded as one of the highest-rated general session keynote speakers at Microsoft’s Global Partners Conference, addressing 6,000 attendees about his process. He is known for his authentic and engaging style and consistently receives high marks because of the value participants receive, and a take-away that arms them with the ability to apply what they’ve learned.
Organizations that have engaged him to speak range from Microsoft, IBM, Cap Gemini, PeopleSoft, NEC Technologies, NCR, ADP, Ceridian, Kronos, Ingram Corporation, Moore Corporation, Johnson Controls, Insperity, Experian, Research in Motion (Blackberry), Jostens, Protective Life Insurance, CMP Media, CBS Radio, PR Newswire, Robert Half International, Million Dollar Round Table, American Collectors Association, Advertising Specialties Institute of America and others. He has appeared on several network media interviews on CNN, ABC, CBS, NBC, Bloomberg Financial, Fox and Friends and network television affiliates across the country.
Below is a testimonial from an organization that engaged Michael to deliver a keynote address at their annual convention in Las Vegas:
“We have had the pleasure of working with ‘the best of the best’ speakers/trainers such as Dr. Ken Blanchard, co-author of The One Minute Manager, Dr. Stephen R. Covey, author of The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People, Tom Peters, author of In Search of Excellence, and several other of the most notable speakers in the country. These speakers and internationally acclaimed authors are some of the best speakers in the business today. However, Michael brought our audience alive with insights and ideas that will change the way they approach their businesses forever. His general session keynote at our annual convention in Las Vegas was our all-time highest rated keynote, and his general session keynote in Dallas was rated the highest of all keynotes ever, since the inception of The ASI! Show. We highly recommend Michael, his organization, and look forward to working with him on future national programs.”
