“Creating a speech that inspires people to take action is not an easy task. I have a topic that I am passionate about, and many lives I want to impact.
As a former collegiate basketball coach, I value the knowledge and wisdom of an excellent coach. Michael Davis of Speaking CPR is such a person.
Michael is just as passionate and dedicated to working with a I am about my topic. Over the course of four sessions, Michael worked with me to uncover and develop the best stories to support my points.
Additionally, he taught me how to open my speech in a way that captures people’s attention, and close with a call to action that inspires my audience.
Michael is a coach at heart. If you want an expert who can coach you to a higher level of speaking, you need to work with Michael Davis.

“Thank you for your coaching with my LULAC Awards Gala speech… I received many compliments from many people both for the speech content and for the delivery. Thank you for helping make it sharp and to the point. Your suggestions to slow down, take my time reading the names of VIP attendees, the intro paragraph, etc. were invaluable as well as the coaching at the auditorium. I look forward to working with you on my next big presentation”.

“Just want to say a huge thank you…. After being coached I followed the suggestions provided and changed my presentation. What a difference it has made!
I got the audience involved in the process. I also removed some of the slides so I wasn’t giving them all the info in one presentation, as you suggested.
I also referred them to my book for more info. That had also been a struggle, but it’s now fixed.
Guess what? I have already been invited back to do another session and one of the participants is going to contact me about doing a session for one of her groups.
Thanks for the opportunity to be coached.”

“I recommend the coaching services of Michael Davis. He helped me to put a new, more meaningful spin on my existing presentations that enabled me to connect with my audience. He provided me with tools and resources that allowed me to gain confidence, decrease my anxiety, and more effectively get my message across. Most importantly, he taught me how to have fun with public speaking!”

“Mike Davis is a speech architect: he engineers a speech to perfection, builds it on solid foundation then pays exquisite attention to the all important details. Best, he gave me the presentation I wanted…and didn’t know enough to ask.
In 4 lively, full sessions via Skype, starting with a blank legal pad and an urgent 10 day time frame to present a 45 minute presentation to an international conference, Mike first gave me structure and principles to get started; second, shaped my first section to instruct, improve and guide me to completion; third, crafted, shaped and embellished with final homework assignments ; and fourth, he reviewed, tweaked and perfectly honed my message for optimal humor and entertainment.
I delivered a professional, very well-received presentation with absolute confidence. He may have been my training wheels for this one, but going forward, he’ll be my indispensable Director and Oracle, my secret weapon to win hearts and minds with integrity and authenticity.”
