“Mike helped me fine tune a 10-minute presentation from “too much information” into a clear, to-the-point focus that has not only given me more confidence, but I am generating more positive feedback. from the audience NOW then I did before meeting with Mike. Mike has a unique ability to help you focus on the main point(s) of your presentation and then how to present them in a way that is easy for those in the audience to understand.”
Vice President of Marketing Strategy, DMR/Interactive
“Last summer, when I spoke and promoted to subscribe to [my email newsletter] Hot Marketing Tips, I got a big fat zero sign ups. At your wise suggestion, I passed the signup clipboard around the room this time. I have to admit that when you first mentioned it, it felt very old-fashion and not trendy or technology driven. I set a goal for 50 new sign ups. Probably 2 times more than I have ever had sign up at one time. When I tallied the new subscribers after the lunch yesterday, we hit a total of 72! I think that is about 40% of the room. THANKS!”

“I have been coached by Michael for about six months now. If you are thinking of getting coached, I can tell you he has fabulous ideas and thinks out of the box. I was giving a speech on a hard topic – the loss of a relative. Mike helped me to lighten it up, which had been impossible for me to do before I met him. I cannot say enough about him.
Professional Speaker and Advocate
“The Keynote speech I gave went well. I got comments like this:
“I truly thought your ADED Key note was heartfelt and inspiring! Looking forward to reading (your upcoming book) ’50 Abilities!’
I did get eight business cards, four of which would like me to speak in their area… also the meeting director said when the book is ready she can post it in their newsletter and do an email blast.
Another good story – I went to the web site of the Pocatello Marathon to register to do their race again. I noticed that their pasta dinner the night before had speaker listed as TBA, so I emailed them. They agreed to have me speak – paying for everything for just a 20-minute speech.
Thank you, so much for your guidance, knowledge and also the support. I went in to the speech with confidence that it would be great.

“Wow, you exceeded my expectations in today’s 30 min coaching session.
You provided the feedback necessary to move me past a point where I was feeling stuck and didn’t know what to do to get past that point. I appreciate your willingness to share your insight, experience and knowledge with professionalism and good cheer.
Both you and Mark made me glad that I agreed to participate and sit on the “hot seat” to review my material. The payoff far exceeds the pain. Based on what I learned today, I’ll be working harder on scripting and editing material, as well as testing it systematically for clarity.”
