  • +Something’s Gotta Change… Maybe It’s You!: Ensuring Success Even When “Shit Happens”

    This presentation delivers an inspiring, impactful message that teaches participants to release their untapped potential and take control of their business. The audience will learn to take control of their professional lives, become accountable to themselves, regardless of the external pressures to their business. Whether you acknowledge it or not, change is happening daily. There are a myriad of external factors that influence our markets, our business and the environment we operate in. The vast majority of these factors we have little to no power to change. We can fight the changes. We can resist them, ignore them or let them flatten us. What we cannot do is stop them from happening. So when I hear someone drop the “Something’s gotta change” truism, I want to grab them by the shoulders and shake them and scream “Yeah something’s gotta change… Maybe it’s you!” This session focuses on personal accountability and shifting attitudes to navigate the undulating plains of change within any business.

  • +Redefining Badass

    This is a conversation on Emotional Intelligence that can be tailored to your specific audience. Coupling my experience as CEO of one of Canada’s top mortgage brokerages with my own tragic lived experiences this keynote hits home on many levels. In a society that seems to continue to push the stereotypical, unrealistic, hypermasculine values that have been passed on from generation to generation it is important to understand the perils that this cultural mentality invite. This presentation is as relevant in the high school, college or University classroom as it is the corporate boardroom. For years I have written and talked about both the personal and societal challenges that conforming to the normative definition of what it means to be a Badass create.

  • +The Brand of ME: Science and Story for Authentic Selling

    This presentation delivers an inspiring, impactful message that teaches participants to release their untapped potential. Mike tells of his experience training for an iron distance triathlon and uses that as a parallel to teach what is required for long-term business success. Many of the principles taught are used within the presentation itself to ensure a powerful message is driven home.
