He (Michel) rocks the show

I have seen Michel in action as an Emcee and he rocks the show. More recently I had the pleasure of being in the audience when he shared a powerful speech. There are great story tellers and there important concepts to share, the mark of an incredible speaker is when they can share a passionate story and use that story to drive home a powerful message. Michel does that with style. The way I watched him bring his story full circle so that the audience really 'got it' was very impressive.

The keynote was well worth it.

Purposeful Storytelling proved to be a great keynote topic. The message working very well for the project management audience at the PMI Southern Ontario meeting in November. As Project Managers, we need to maintain a strong rapport with our teams, our customers and our sponsors. The ability to present our results, the pertinent details, while keeping on point, and delivering the true message is critical and Michel provided many approaches that can be adopted, and help in the successful communications. The keynote was well worth it. Thank you Michel!

everything was so easy and professional

As part of the organizing committee of our convention, I had to look for speakers. Right from the beginning when I contacted Michel, everything was so easy and professional. Michel was so cooperative and he even helped us with our promotion. Our members just loved his presentation on purposeful storytelling and they were asking for more. We saw a funny and engaging speaker, with a very compelling story. Thank you Michel !
