Michel Neray speaking on stage


The messaging that Michel worked on with us not only helped us establish our brand differentiation and leadership position with customers, strategic partners and analysts, it helped keep us focused internally on our core strategy. And it was absolutely a factor in our growth and success.

Co-founder and CEO, CyberX (acquired by Microsoft)
It’s always a challenge to keep people engaged in virtual presentations, but your name consistently came up as one of the favourite speakers of the conference — people were truly engaged by your stories and delivery. As an event planner, I’d also say that you were easy to work with. Plus, you went over and above in your preparedness, especially with the technology, which gave us confidence leading up to the conference. Thank you!
Dan SimsDirector, Business Development, Investments, Beneva (insurance)
One of the best storytelling programs, if not the best, I have ever seen. Remarkable in its clarity.
Dave LieberKeynote speaker; Humorist; Columnist for Dallas Morning News
Members indicated that you transformed their thinking for better problem solving, relationship building, and ultimately satisfied customer sales… a great program!
Joan TezakExec. Director, Colorado Society Association Executives (CSAE)
Your speech on the virtual stage was spellbinding as we received plenty of positive reviews from our advisors afterwards. The musical performance at the end was a nice way to cap off the roadshow.
Matthew To
Director, Business Development - Investments Beneva (Insurance)
That was the perfect session for me. It helped me develop the story as the foundation of my branding. Thank you.
Elvina Kamalova
Michel’s coaching helped me clarify my key insights, balance the story with just the right amount of detail, and elevate it from a basic 'talk' to a powerful performance.
Michel, your story coaching helped me create a story that got people to listen. Really listen. I felt confident in the story and I knew it had impact. Plus, it was a fantastic way to share what I do -- without having to beat people over the head with obvious facts and credentials. Much more authentic. Thank you.

Michel was able to deliver a flawless and engaging workshop online that bridged the gaps in geography. The content was timely and practical as I refine my storytelling during this time of social distancing.
Delores Wurtz
I loved the virtual format! It ran smoothly, allowed us to meet and easily work with new people, plus everyone had a chance to be heard and participate. It may have even helped us to be more focused and present than an 'in-person' experience.
Lisa Rickett
I participated in Michel's virtual storytelling workshop last week and it was super informative and fun AND I got to practice! Was just like being in person but even quieter and easier to focus! These classes are always full of valuable, take home material!
Jeff Aldridge
Excellent! Outstanding! Amazing! Michel is one of the greatest communicators I have ever had the pleasure to hear speak. He is also 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.
Isabelle Pleszczynska Healthcare Communications Mgr, Major Dep Disorder Lundbeck Canada Inc.
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.
Linda BabulicPersonal Business Strategist at ZEST Your Life
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!
Nancy Heinrichs, Executive DirectorWinnipeg Regional Health Authority
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!
