I have worked closely with Mike for over 20 years. He has an exceptional grasp of issues, as well as a willingness to seek out the facts and listen to people's differing ideas. Mike is at home across a wide variety of subjects, from technology to community building and from management practices to religion. He also, importantly, is a man of the highest personal integrity.

Chairman Emeritus, The Trammell Crow Company
Mike's ability to sort out the human side of organizations, combined with encouraging me to utilize new methods for approaching emerging business challenges are just two of the tangible benefits I've realized from working with him. His approach to the entire process is built on integrity, trust and a sincere desire for enabling a leader to understand his strategic role within the organization.
Senior Executive, High Tech Industry
Mike is an amazing speaker, with a remarkable ability to communicate great truth in a manner that is engaging, entertaining and insightful on multiple levels. He powerfully connects with our diverse audiences, ranging from front line workers to top executives. Maintenance workers and senior executives alike describe Mike's presentations as thought provoking, practical and powerful.
CEO, Strategic Government Resources, Incorporated
Mike has been the keynote speaker for two of our company's annual dinners. His engaging, dynamic style always captures his audience at the beginning and keeps them hanging on every word until the very end. Weeks after his presentations, our employees continue to refer back to key comments and insights from his remarks.
CEO, Mortgage Banking Industry
Mike was the final speaker at our annual convention and trade show in Fort Worth. He spoke on "Leadership in Tough Times" and was, frankly, outstanding!
But please don't take it from me and me alone. Some comments written by attendees (by the way, 100% of the attendees said that Mike's session met or exceeded their expectations; he disappointed nobody!):
In addition to giving our attendees a real treat, Mike was a total joy to work with before the event. He was incredibly organized, met all deadlines and made a real effort to get familiar with our industry so that he could customize his talk. As you likely know, these things are not a "given" when it comes to event speakers.
And of course, he achieved what all event planners hope a speaker will: He made me look really good for choosing him!
