Absolutely life-changing! Just a couple months ago I couldn't fathom getting up on stage to speak, but Mike's strategies have profoundly helped me become a better me. I'm gaining the confidence to speak up not just on stage but in every day life. He is dedicated to helping folks remarkably improve at an accelerated pace with such great lessons and insights, his passion speaks for itself - and his work as well. I'm so thankful I took this step. 💪

I just had my first session with Mike and he really offered some great tips on how I can answer interview questions. He made sure to cover nonverbal and verbal cues when answering. I also learned the best ways to sit when being interviewed and some great tips on having a good posture. Looking forward to more lessons with Mike!

Mike knows his stuff and in one session, I feel much more confident to take on small speaking engagements. He provides great value with professionalism and humor. I will definitely be working with him to develop my communication skills!

Mike is absolutely, fantastic. His approach is holistic & effective. I have always been frozen by fear when it came to speaking. I even had trouble with small conversations with people. His strategies are easy to implement. During live training sessions he helps me see where (and when) I can implement his strategies if I feel paralyzed by fear or nerves. He has helped me restructure my content to be more effective & we rehearse. I can’t say enough good things about him. Meeting and training with him has changed my life. His book is a permanent part of my toolkit now. I share my learnings with my friends & family. I recommend him to anyone looking to improve their speaking in any aspect of their life: personnel or professional.
