Michael Davis’s work is focused on helping you attract more clients, create more efficient teams, and increase your influence through more effective speaking, business storytelling and online presentations. He helps experienced speakers, entrepreneurs, and sales professionals confidently deliver memorable and meaningful talks of any length, even on short notice.
His passion for effective presenting was born on a desk when he was in first grade. He was being punished for breaking a class rule. The embarrassment of being ridiculed by his classmates kept him from effectively presenting for the next 25 years.
This didn’t change until the day his boss told him, “Either get better at giving presentations or we’ve got to let you go!” That motivated Michael to deal with his fear. With the help of mentors he met through Toastmasters and the National Speakers Association, he discovered the skills and tools to manage his fear, become an effective speaker and uncovered his talent for training others to become world class presenters and business storytellers.
He continues to learn more about the craft every day.
Michael is a highly-sought presentation skills consultant and trainer, author and speaker. He has trained business leaders, salespeople, and professional and TEDx speakers on four continents to deliver talks that have been viewed over 3 million times. He 's the Founder of Speaking CPR and is a faculty member and coach at Stage Time University.
He lives in Blue Ash, Ohio with his family, and the overlords of their house, Sky the Super Chihuahua and her underling, Riley the Mini-Chihuahua.
