Excellent! Outstanding! Amazing! Michel is one of the greatestcommunicators I have ever had the pleasure to hear speak. He isso entertaining yet so relate-able. Highly recommend him for the next event you host and need a speaker to entertain andeducation your audience.
Karen FoxMarket Domination Strategist, Speaker
Michel, we knew there would be some challenges in presenting a keynote on storytelling to our group, but you gently helped us take several steps on that journey by demonstrating how to use stories to enhance the impact of the research… and you did it with ‘aplomb’. You also left us with a wonderful reminder that we are all indeed human. On a professional — and personal — note, I want to tell you how much we appreciated your openness and flexibility leading up to the event, in tailoring the content to meet our objectives. Merci.

Michel's speaking classes and pointers go straight to the heart of transformation… and they’re informative and fun. They've been a key factor in helping me effectively build my coaching practice and my community.

You did an excellent job of demonstrating the value of storytelling to enhance leadership and improve outcomes. The session also gave us new insights and appreciation for our colleagues. And while I was initially concerned about how people would take to a session on storytelling, it was gratifying to see how participants left the workshop with specific tools to help them be more structured and deliberate in their communications.
Roxann LintonChief Executive Officer, First Heritage Co-operative Credit Union (FHC)
I was skeptical that a keynote about storytelling could deliver anything new to an audience made up of top salespeople. But, Michel did a great job, and I was doubly impressed at another event that evening when one of the attendees shared a very powerful and moving story that he had been inspired to share as a result of Michel’s presentation. I can see why these techniques are so effective in sales, leadership and in the work we do in advocating and grassroots lobbying.
Michel's presentation was true magic. He was able to craft a message for the audience that combined his expertise with their immediate needs. His delivery was exemplary. By combining humor, examples, and an informal but focused presentation, he demonstrated his command of storytelling principles and gave the audience immediate useful take-a-ways. True learning took place - Michel left the audience left feeling excited and motivated.
Michel Neray's 'Purposeful Storytelling' training has not only helped internal staff be more effective in their respective roles, it helped us access new sources of revenue. In addition, our front line staff reported they were more effective in the field. We would definitely hire Michel again, and in fact, we did!

Michel, the message of your keynote was right in line with the objectives of the event. And, the more we work with our marketing company, the more we realize that the message of your keynote is also right in line with the objectives of our company. Thank you! Dave
Dave Rosevelt, CEOCentric Consulting
Purposeful Storytelling proved to be a great keynote topic. 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!

I was immediately impressed by Michel's quick grasp of the potential impact of my message and his keen insight into how I could have my message resonate more deeply with my audience.
Michel's coaching helped me refocus my energy on what was important while I continued to branch out. He helped a great deal and I recommend him for those who want to gain clarity and be empowered to reach new levels of success.

LeanWerks recently completed a week-long deep dive on our essential qualities, cultural foundation, and competitive positioning facilitated by Michel Neray. It was the best work on this front that I have experienced – at this company and at any other company I have been in. More than an exercise in branding and positioning, I now see how powerful the Essential Message concept is for our people and how it impacts on our culture – that was unexpected.
Reid Leland, Owner/PresidentLeanWerks
The messaging that Michel developed with our team provided clear differentiation and a distinct value proposition for our company. It also provided a key focus for our sales and marketing efforts, which helped us grow our business by 60% per year and become the #1 vendor in our space.
Michel, what really stood out for us compared to other speakers we have worked with is that you were easy to work with and, in doing the interviews leading up to the event, you really went above and beyond the actual speaking engagement.
Matt Henretta, Director of Business OperationsCentric Consulting
Michel's presentations could be described as the perfect combination of engaging, entertaining and educational. He commands control of a room, mixing bits of humor with thought provoking video clips while encouraging his audience to think deeply about the skills that they can offer to the world, both on a personal and professional level.
Scott Hershberger, Public Relations ContractorFranklin County Visitors Bureau
We invited Michel to our Conference in part to help change the conversation with our Business Partners – he delivered. He was engaging, inspiring and thought-provoking. Most of all, Michel’s “Essential Message” drove home the importance of leveraging differentiation in a competitive world.
Kevin Brick, VP MarketingWise Foods, Inc.
A true professional in every sense of the word! Michel provided exactly what we were looking for - a great presentation, a satisfied audience and most importantly a real value for his services. He comes prepared, is easy to work with and really wants his client and their audience to get the most out of his presentations.
