    "Michael transformed our everyday managers into conference presenters by coaching them and by challenging the traditional methods they were using to present. The outcome was phenomenal.

    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."

    “As a former Green Beret and professional storyteller, I give dozens of speeches every year. I am very selective about who trains me.

    Michael Davis exceeded every expectation and was one of the best coaches I ever worked with. His quiet professionalism, and unsurpassed knowledge of storytelling helped make my Ted X Cincinnati talk extremely powerful.
    I would recommend Michael, as a story and speaking coach to anyone with a high stakes talk to give. Michael will help you take your speech from good to great!”

    “We are privileged to have Michael Davis of Speaking CPR as one of the Speaker Coaches for our TED x Cincinnati event. I had the opportunity to be on several of the calls with Michael as he worked his craft with his speakers. I was impressed with how genuine, exuberant, and in touch he was with each speaker.

    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.”
