Michael, why would you describe yourself as a great speaker?
Michael: I think, clients should rather decide, if I am the right fit for them. My testimonials on this site do help on making this decision. I think, associations and corporations looking for messages on leadership, sales, change, and motivation already find great support through my work. Usually, they tend to book and re-book my services, when they like to have a speaker to combine entertainment and corporate message. My adventure and challenge background keeps audiences closely to my stories on stage. Long days of conferences usually need a fun and light-hearted element, which can easily be me. My keynotes show how I faced extremely challenges in over 90 countries, how I failed forward, embraced change to basically survived, and turned myself into a true sales man to turn a bitten apple into a real house (How to Barter for Paradise). My shows are supported by great video- and handout material. Breakout sessions, round table discussions and signed books of mine for all meeting participants do round up a highly motivating and inspiring experience.
