I first met Mike at an industry event in Florida. I was so moved by his presentation that afterwards I shook his hand and told him that he just changed my life forever. About a month later I invited him to make a similar presentation for our company during our annual Christmas luncheon. Mike presented to over 225 guests and that were engaged and motivated. The next day he made a full day presentation to 40 of our managers and sales team. Our team is still talking about the event and quoting lines from his book.
– Navid Yavari, CEO, PAI Industries
The consensus from our attendees and employees was that you delivered a terrific and relevant keynote for our conference! Several long-time employees said it might have been the best in our 23-year history hosting this conference. We are so glad you were able to be a part of our conference.
– John Stampen, SVP Marketing, Wisconsin Manufacturing Enterprise Partnership
Mike Evans participated as a keynote speaker in The IIA’s General Audit Management Conference. His leadership presentation really resonated with the audience of executives in internal audit. Mike is one of our highest rated speakers and as a result is being asked back to present at the All Star Conference which is the conference where we showcase encore presentations from the highest rated speakers. This is a great testament to his ability to provide an audience with practical strategies, tools and techniques for positive outcomes in their practice setting. I look forward to future opportunities to include Mike in The IIA’s conference programs.
– Sheena Majette, Managing Director, Conferences, IIA
Thank you for your great presentation today! Overall I think it went well and I have already received positive feedback from Margie and several other agency leaders. The messages in your content Mike was excellent and spot on for the culture initiative our agency is working on. You also did a great job getting everyone involved and making it interactive! Our team was astonished with the level of engagement and involvement from our attendee that you were able to achieve. Simply brilliant! Thanks again and we cannot wait to have you here live in December.
– Sarah Hoenig, Senior Director, U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission
Great job last week at the WMEP conference! I just finished with generous and valuable follow up video, and I'd welcome additional materials. We had 4 others from our company attend the conference and they all could not stop referencing your presentation. Your ideas and content we so memorable and impactful that we started to implement your ideas immediately. Your presentation skills are unmatched. I have never been as engaged in any online event ever.
– Ryan Blaine, VP Operations, Aztalan Engineering
We knew we’d found something special from the first phone call we had with Mike. He asked simple yet thought provoking questions designed to help him really understand our organization and the challenges facing us. Mike spoke at our annual group conference and he nailed it. His energy started the day off right and his message showed he listened to what we said and incorporated the themes into his keynote. The feedback from the group has been extremely positive. We’ve had experiences with speakers in that past who have missed the mark, but Mike really demonstrated the value of having an external perspective from an industry expert. Consistently what we are hearing is Mike was the best part of the conference.
– Kris Rodemack, Finance Controller, Intel
I have never seen a group respond to a speaker the way they did with Mike’s talk. Not only did he fully engage the audience for the entire (too short) time allowed, every conversation I had with attendees afterward included comments on the dynamic inspiration he provided. I am sure many of those present will go on to make meaningful leadership contributions as a direct result. Thank you, Mike!
– David Champlin, SVP, Stewart & Stevenson
His unique insights have positively affected me, both personally and professionally. His work on accountability will stop you in your tracks, almost forcing one to self-reflect and make changes regarding what matters most. You gave me the courage to step out into the unknown, to take responsibility for what was happening to me and around me, to see that there are other options. So, thank you for that.
– Pam Jamieson, Director, Department of Defense
I have had the distinct privilege of working with Mike Evans over the past decade. Mike was the keynote speaker for 3 different organizations where I served as the Vice President of Human Resources. Mike’s engaging interactive upbeat and humorous style works across all industries as well as non-profit and for-profit companies. Reviews consistently rate Mike as the highlight of our events. Mike’s ability to work a room of 50 to 2000 guests is amazing. He keeps attendees on the edge of their seats during his entire presentation. The engagement and interest he creates is palpable. Mike designs custom workbooks which are used to reinforce the learning and equips participants with something to utilize when they return to their place of employment. When completing post survey questionnaires Mike’s sessions always rate as the highest presentation of the entire conference. Lastly, prior to each event, Mike works diligently to understand the organizations culture, mission and values and incorporates those into his presentations.
– Todd Haines, HR Consultant and Professor at Sacramento University
This was my first year picking our keynote speaker for our Annual Kickoff Meeting, on my own and I was not sure what direction to go. I came across and viewed a video of Mike speaking at another event, and I automatically felt that he was the right person. From the very beginning, it was obvious this was his space and what he was meant to do. He was professional and his attention to detail was amazing. He truly listened to our expectations and what we needed. The topics he spoke about resonated with every single person and allowed them to take away applicable strategies to better themselves and their business. Not only was he engaging but his demonstrations were eye opening and relatable. He had a natural way of connecting with the audience. I received nothing but positive feedback and praise for him as a speaker. I am grateful to have found him.
