I help leaders craft, refine, and deliver impactful presentations—the kind people talk about long after the conference is over. The kind people remember.

Meet Mike

In over a decade in this game, I’ve presented to five people, a thousand people, and all sorts of things in between. If there’s a mistake to be made, I’ve made it (so if I see you headed towards one, I help you avoid it).

I’m a sucker for a well-told story. As humans, we all are. And I care about helping you find yours and to refine it into a message that gets results.  

It always humbles me when I look at my client list: Olympic gold medalists, NYT best-selling authors, global corporations; big names on big stages. But I’m just as passionate about small names on small stages with stories that open big doors.

So, if you’re getting on a stage soon, or you regularly get on a stage but know your abilities don’t yet match your goals, let’s talk. 

My sweet spot is helping:

  • Up-and-coming authors
  • Ambitious executives
  • Driven individuals who want to make a difference
  • Teams that need an upgrade on their presentations

Big or small, I work well with people who are excited about what they have to say.

What kind of experience do you want to have on stage? If it's one that includes confidence and a dialed-in, memorable message, then you'll want to work with Mike. You'll not only give your best speech, but it will transform all your future presentations, too. Do it!”

Mike helped me translate my bestselling book into a speech I could deliver repeatedly.

I interned for the Phillies during their forgettable 2002 season. My big moment was when future Hall of Famer Scott Rolen got traded. I was in charge of forwarding his Gold Glove Award to him. Fun fact: it's literally a baseball

Metaphorically speaking, a lot of us do the same when we start a speech: we make it all about ourselves. We read our resume to the audience.

Y’all. We don’t need to do that. At best that comes off as braggy; more likely it comes off as insecure. 

Don't be that guy.
