Horses? Easy to find. Narwhals? a quick google search shows their existence. But a Unicorn?... Well, that's rare. Mike is rare, he is that Unicorn. And by that, I mean Mike is a great life coach, and an equally incredible speaker. The combination of these two things makes him an amazing resource. Mike has helped me tremendously with my public speaking abilities over the years. I went from nervously speaking to a small group of teens to confidently speaking to a school auditorium. And I can honestly say I couldn't have done that without Mike's coaching, patience, and annoyingly accurate feedback.Feb 9, 2019
I have known Mike for many years and watched him grow from a dedicated student into a leader who takes great care in keeping a very holistic view of what he is working on so no details are missed. Mike is focused and cares about everyone involved in a project that they know they are an important part of it and that they have an important voice. Mike is focused on being responsive and professional in all that he does and is engaging as a speaker. People like listening to him and he brings great humility and humor to his voice which helps him connect to his listeners.Jan 24, 2019

Mike is very knowledgeable and I learned a great deal after just one coaching session. He has a workshop that he is offering which is loaded with valuable lessons for anyone serious about becoming a professional presenter.Jun 22, 2019Verified
Working with Mike has been extremely helpful. At only two years out of college I appreciate his expertise and opinion regarding my career. Thanks Mike!Apr 28, 2019Verified
I thoroughly enjoyed working with Mike so far. He introduced me to various ideas and books that have been very helpful towards my success. I particularly appreciated that he took notes during our sessions, and you will not go wrong with choosing Mike as your coach.Feb 13, 2019Verified
