“Dynamic” “Game Changing” “Inspiring” “Authentic”

I’m grateful that those are words that leaders and meeting planners have used to describe my keynote talks and coaching experiences. I use my first-hand experiences over 25 years in the fast-paced, competitive world of motorsports to drive home solutions to empower, educate, and entertain your audience!

Are you experiencing any of these frustrating pain points and want to shift mindsets to accelerate change? 

  • Poor collaboration among internal teams?
  • Lacking authentic customer connections
  • Feeling like your team is stuck?
  • Uncertain customer and employee loyalty
  • Low team accountability to mission?
  • Reputation not driving new business

The motorsports stories I share and timely messages on the power and value of our reputations resonates with broad audiences and industries from the C-suite to front-line team members!

My focus is to not only challenge attendees to think differently, but also empower them with actionable strategies that drive towards action to accelerate trust, collaboration, communication, and teamwork to deliver results.

Featured Speaking Topics

Racing with Blind Spots

Chances are you’ve never driven a race car professionally. But make no mistake, you are still a driver and can experience the very perils they face racing 200mph, inches from the competition!  While we all have an eye on winning, will you be able to stay in the race and drive to Victory Lane by identifying your Blind Spots and, more importantly, your Spotters?

Build a Revenue-Generating Reputation

Fast Company reports that the No. 1 Super Skill to achieve success in today’s economy is by strengthening and developing your reputation and personal brand!  Do you know how to stand out in a cluttered marketplace? Do you have a plan for how to build and protect your reputation? How do you find your authentic voice? How can you build a more loyal book of business? These are just a few questions that Mike answers as attendees learn the four vital steps needed to build a reputation that will create distinction and drive greater opportunities for success.

Restrictor Plate Life

Restrictor Plates are designed to reduce an engine’s horsepower by up to 50%, but it will go back to producing 100% once the Restrictor Plate is removed. Much like engines, we all have Restrictor Plates that limit the personal horsepower that we and our teams create often leaving us short of our full potential. How would your or your team’s performance soar if you removed just one?


“Mike has supported two global events for my firm and was incredibly well received at both events. His message is both entertaining and applicable in any environment. His passionate and dynamic delivery brings a level of authenticity not often achieved by many speakers. If your organization is looking for a key note speaker, executive coach, or simply a “spark” to inspire collaboration and innovation, Mike is your guy.”  Shane Yount, President, Competitive Solutions

“Mike delivered one of the most effective presentations to our district meeting we have ever had, on the keys to reputation. Trust, is the backbone of the insurance industry. By being reminded of the need to protect the reputation and culture already in place, we’ve implemented additional steps that set us apart from the competition and have seen increases in not just sales, but more importantly, and the key to our growth, referrals!” Sean O’Brien, Agency Manager at Farm Bureau Insurance

“I would highly recommend Mike Mooney to speak with any organization that is focused on growth and building their reputation in the marketplace. Mike spoke to us on a variety of topics that challenged old ways of thinking about the power of brand. Mike’s compelling questions and engaging dialogue was more than impactful to our group, but what was most impressive was his ability to share stories from his experience in the NASCAR industry that connected everyone in our group from millennials to seasoned veterans.” Joe Price, Senior Sales Leader Tom James of Charlotte

“Mike Mooney’s keynote, Racing with Blind Spots is one of the best concepts on trust building and communication that I have experienced – and it is an experience!  Mike takes you into the depth of trust like no other methodology I have seen. I was literally sitting on the edge of my chair as I listened to how you can apply the “spotter” concept in your organization.  It brings a new meaning to trust. You will shift your mindset as a leader and be inspired to take your team and organization to the next level!” Regina Y. Wharton, SVP Human Resources, MPS Organizational Behavior, Fifth Third Bank
