To put it simply, Mike empowers people to solve problems. Clients in over 20 states and internationally have hired him to speak …with incredible results.
"My goal is to see people at their best. It's a joy for me to watch as teamwork improves, adversity is pushed through and relationships strengthen."-
During his straightforward, humorous, and emotional keynotes, Mike lays out the framework needed for healthy businesses, schools, and organizations...which are all made up of people.
He's presented over 600 times to over 100,000 people from every walk of life.
"Growing up in a military family was tough, but I got to travel the world. Making friends became second nature to me. As a kid I was often the class clown getting in trouble for doing the very thing I now do professionally...talking."
Mike has a voracious appetite for understanding human behavior and wants to use this knowledge to help people solve problems.
Throughout his life, several things have been close to his heart- music, lacrosse, skateboarding and laughing.
Now as a husband and father of two kids, he has a deep passion to see people live the life they’ve always wanted. A life with meaning. A life that matters. The life of a hero.
He's a graduate of Rutgers University and currently lives right outside Charlotte, NC.
Thank you again and happy for the positive people who know how to reach a teenager’s head ….. a hard task to do and you are doing it : ) -Mom of a middle school boy
By giving your own experiences, and pulling kids out of their comfort zone, by pulling ME out of my own comfort zone – Mike, you have changed me. You have made me such a greater person, really you have. I have been bullied since I was a young kid. If it was from my looks, height, or my speech impediment. You have taught me to stand taller than the bullies, that I AM NOT a zero, I am a HERO!!! - Scott, high school student
