[PRESENTATION SKILLS FOR SALES TEAMS & LEADERS]
 

In college, Michael dropped his speech class and swore he would never take the stage again after a humiliating presentation. But destiny had other plans and soon he was drawn to the stage once more, this time not out of duty for a school credit, but for a desire to impact and inspire people. Michael has spent thousands of dollars and countless hours training to overcome his fears and become an impactful presenter which he heavily relies on in all aspects of his business, from sales, to marketing, to speaking from stage.

 

He trained face-to-face with Bo Eason, a former NFL standout, acclaimed Broadway performer, and an international presence/story coach to develop his message and now uses this message to train, inspire, and motivate audiences to achieve their greatest potential.
