“At a time in the world when our leadership team is feeling pressure from all sides Mike helped us reframe some of our greatest challenges.”
President, The Marketing Arm
“Mike was the keynote speaker at our recent Carolinas 21 multi-state conference and we could not be happier with the outcome. I have been a CENTURY 21 franchise owner for almost a decade and have seen many speakers in my time here at our different conferences and overall real estate industry conferences.
Mike was the first speaker I have witnessed to come a day early and submerge himself in our event so he can learn more about us to incorporate it into his talking points. It made his talk more engaging and relevant to our audience. He stuck around for the rest of the day and talked to many of the Brokers and Agents which left a lasting impression and impact.
“I highly recommend Mike if you are looking to improve your mindset and are ready to make real change in your business.”
CEO CENTURY 21 Triangle Group
“Mike’s keynote message, “Racing with Blind Spots” was an incredibly dynamic and memorable experience for the City of Lynchburg’s annual Leadership Forum. This event hosts approximately 150 of the City’s leaders and supervisors at all levels within the organization. His keynote was by far the most praised segment of the forum, and his message on the implications of a leader’s reputation was refreshingly practical and relatable.
From start to finish, Mike was intentional about seeking to understand the corporate culture of the City and mindset of our leaders. The value of his message also came at an opportune time, as our departments and leaders are preparing to move into new territory to evaluate, improve, and sustain effective processes surrounding recruitment, retention, and succession planning throughout the organization.”
Chief Talent Development Officer, City of Lynchburg, Va.
“We hired Mike to speak for one of our largest client’s internal meetings and he absolutely delivered! We had a last-minute curveball thrown at us with a switch from live to virtual and Mike handled it with ease and definitely brought the energy to connect with the audience.
His message and stories were fantastic and hit home with everyone. Mike absolutely brought what we needed for this meeting and our client absolutely agreed!”
Sales Manager at Genuine Parts Company/NAPA
“Mike delivered a home run with our audience with his Elevating Your Reputation experience. Mike is engaging, articulate, polished and his expertise is apparent. He kept our audience’s attention with his relevant examples and actionable ‘how-to’ plan for how to care for, build, and even repair one’s reputation.
The webinar evaluations were overwhelmingly positive! Mike’s message was inspiring and empowering – everyone can learn something from him.”
CEO at Board of Certification for Emergency Nursing
“Mike delivered a dynamic keynote at our technology conference. Wow! What a way to start our event. The feedback we received from this talk was that it was one of the best keynotes we’ve ever had. Mike was able to tie in the racing concept of spotters to the way we work as a team in technology.
It highlighted how important perspectives and feedback are to the concept of continuous improvement. I literally heard people asking their coworkers to be their spotters as they work to continuously improve their own performance in this high-pressure and ever-changing environment.”
Sr. Human Resources Leader, Athene
“Mike was the Keynote Speaker at the Lean Six Sigma World Conference. Seeing as the theme of the conference was engaging people and teams to drive success and positive change, Mike’s experiences and successes fit perfectly.
Mike gave a great speech about overcoming adversity, challenges teams face, and the power of effective communication. It’s communication I want to recognize about Mike the most however. Mike’s ability to formulate a speech, and the mechanics he used were unlike anything I’ve seen.”
