As a Speaking Coach
Our conference was elevated to a new level of professionalism. Michael will be retained to help make our trainers become better communicators, both visually and verbally and to assist us with next year’s conference. We highly recommend him and Speaking CPR to assist with your next event."

“The first time I told the new version, the audience reaction was noticeably better. The story is much stronger now, and I’m more confident when I tell it.
Michael has a great “ear” for what the audience needs and his suggestions work. I was attached to the old version and I resisted letting it go, but I stuck to Michael’s process and it worked! I’ve already recommended him to friends, and I’ll definitely hire him again. "

He truly has a gift in connecting with the heart of each person he works with and helping them to unleash their story into their talk. All of the speakers raved about his work with them. Each of them has had broad experience in speaking, but they all felt that working with Michael raised the bar on their ability to speak. You can listen to all of his speakers, Anthony Munoz, Richard Bernstein and Graeme Joffe, at http://www.tedxcincinnati.com/talks/.”

“Investing in Michael is one of the best investments I have ever made. I speak on the subject of diversity in the workplace, which can at times be a difficult topic to discuss.
Michael taught me a repeatable process that allows me to create a foundational concept, a logical structure, an opening that grabs the audience’s attention, and a conclusion that encourages my audience to take action that will save them time and money.
I found Michael easy to work with, flexible with his schedule, and a wealth of information about the art of speaking. If you need to improve your presentation or speech, I highly recommend you consider hiring Michael. It is one of the best investments you can make in your own growth.”

“Three days before we were scheduled to present out Storytelling Champ Camp, we learned that my business partner, Craig Valentine, would be unable to lead the program due to a last-minute health issue. Fortunately, Michael Davis agreed to substitute for Craig at the last-minute, and we were thrilled with the results. Our attendees were pleased with Michael’s ideas about how to develop and deliver a World-Class Story. They left the event with a repeatable process that will help them create stories that will impact and influence others.
Michael helped us to present a content-rich workshop that our attendees have come to expect. I highly recommend Michael for speech and presentation skills coaching for your group or organization. He knows how to speak and teach at the world-class level, which is rare.”
