–Stats Canada

You scored a 'hat trick' with your presentation. Your message to our troops on how to become preferred was right on the money—you generated a buzz that really has everyone excited. You made some connections that I am confident will lend to more opportunities with some of our other clients. Finally, we initiated a discussion about what hopefully can blossom into an ongoing relationship between our two organizations. Thanks again for taking the time to visit us and share your expertise.

–Liggett-Stashower, Inc.

We've been getting rave reviews from all who attended our conference. Michael was very professional, right on the mark and very entertaining. For a group of bankers to make such glowing comments about a speaker who comes on right at the end of the day is saying something.

–Royal Bank Financial Group

Your humour was exceptional and hit the raw nerves of the realness of everyday life. I found myself enthralled & amazed at how you captured and commanded my FULL attention and everyone else's too! (1300 people) I walked away with a renewed perspective and with a sense that I had to make changes in how I do business.

–Re/Max Ontario Atlantic

Participants left the conference motivated and charged with energy. I would not hesitate to recommend your services to anyone who is seeking an excellent sales trainer.

–Bank of Montreal

Your energy and message is like a "shot in the arm". Your presentation was informative, entertaining and a great way to wrap up our three day seminar. Other industry guest speakers scheduled to speak after you commented that they wish we would schedule you last, so that they do not have to follow your extraordinary presentation!

– Phoenix Energy Marketing

Few have connected with the audience with the ease that you did. Your emphasis on the need to deliver "distinctive value" was entirely relevant to our industry – and clearly resonated with delegates. The fact that the audience was charged up and receptive after your thought-provoking keynote enhanced the impact made by subsequent speakers. With the applause you received, it won't surprise you to learn you garnered outstanding marks on our delegates' evaluations. A full 96 percent of respondents gave your presentation the highest possible ratings.
