We hired Mitchel to come speak at the Suicide Awareness Walk in St. Paul and were blown away by the effect he had on the crowd. He is an innovative, hysterical, and incredibly deep speaker. His combination of humor, layered with his intense story of his losing his mother....well, there wasn't a dry in the audience. The audience was completely enchanted by him, and he just a wonderful job relating to the audience. I highly recommend him for any speaking gig.

Stu is an excellent speaker. He is funny, engaging, articulate, and passionate. He instantly connected with the audience establishing rapport and credibility.

Lynette Crane was speaker on Introversion in the Workplace at the Minnesota Council of Nonprofits Annual Conference in October of 2015. Her presentation was a huge success because she presented extremely relatable information about a topic that is highly important, yet not widely discussed. She presented to a packed room (a very quiet, introverted packed room), but got the group talking and presented with a high level of expertise and engaging wit. This was one of our most well-received HR-related sessions in our almost 30 year history, and we have invited her back for several additional speaking opportunities. I would definitely recommend Lynette to any organization looking for a speaker who is engaging, approachable and knowledgeable, and can help employers, supervisors and employees leverage the power of introverts (which, by the way, is about half the workforce).

I am a former college football coach where I coached our athletes to give their best performances on every play. This resulted in our winning two conference championships. My programs make neural science fun and understandable and also includes best practices of elite performers. I teach people how to focus, how to influence what they pay attention to and how to create habits that will instinctively generate the actions necessary to reach their goals. There is a core of personal accountability and I'm known as "The Accountability Guy". I certainly build a case for the importance of taking responsibility and being the source versus going victim and blaming. I customize for every group and when hired I will ask about your goals, your systems and metrics, your KPI's, your daily activities and then your obstacles. I incorporate this into the presentation. This is an entertaining, high energy and fun presentation with immediately useful and relevant content. I can customize to any amount of time. I am the only speaker who presents like I do. No one else has the background that I have. I've worked with Nobel Prize winner Roger Sperry while I was a head football and wrestling coach at Cal Tech in Pasadena, CA. I had the opportunity to refine and simplify these techniques with Steve Mariucci, fellow assistant coach while at Cal State Fullerton. Steve is a former head coach for the San Francisco 49'ers and Detroit Lions and is now a broadcaster. I don't emphasize this unless you want me to. I also coached an Olympic Gold Medal winner in Greco Roman Wrestling, Jeff Blatnick, who won the gold in the 1984 Olympics.
I'm a motivational speaker, award-winning author and Emmy award winner. I speak for groups in education and in business on how to drive greater results through engagement and leadership training. Nice Bike: making meaningful connections on the road of life.
