For the last 20 years, corporations, conferences, and motivational seminars have booked Michael to speak at their events. There truly is nothing better than face-to-face interaction when it comes to inspiration and practical education – both of which will be delivered by Michael during every speaking appearance, regardless of the topic.

Michael delivers entertaining presentations with practical tips on life and sales in his dynamic style. The content is conversational and interactive. Often times, the most value is delivered during optional breakout sessions after Michael’s talk, in addition to informal Q&A throughout the day.

While every talk will be tailored to the client’s specific needs, here are some of the topics Michael speaks on:
