Mike Evans recently presented his talk “Thrive in the New World of Work” at the 2022 Florida Health Information Management Association. As a meeting planner, it is always very helpful to have a speaker who is very communicative on the front end, making sure we have all we need for their presentation and taking the time to learn about our group. Mike and his team were very helpful in the planning of his opening keynote address. Mike also showed up early for our AV check the morning of, and it’s always helpful to have a prompt and prepared speaker. It saves us planners a lot of stress and worry! Our audience also found Mike’s presentation style very engaging with lots of great takeaways. I would definitely recommend working with Mike and his team if your conference needs a presenter on a similar topic.

Kristyn McCauley, CAE, CMP
Program Manager/Meeting Planner, Florida Health Information Management Association (FHIMA)

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

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

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

“Mike, in over 30 years of attending conferences, seminars and breakout sessions, I have never seen anyone captivate an audience for an entire day the way you do. Your high energy, interactive style ensure that everyone in attendance will pay full attention to what you say. Your ability to draw parallels from the examples you give to the topic you have been tasked to discuss ensure that the tie they spend listening will be rewarded. The response from all who attended was overwhelmingly positive and they asked that we have you do more of these sessions in the future. I can’t imagine a higher compliment than that from our group.”

Greg Kelin

"Thanks Mike. We had a tremendous amount of positive feedback from both our distributors and employees on your presentation.  They were chasing me down following the session to get your contact information. I know I got a lot out of it, and I believe the attendees all found it very informative and relevant.  Thanks again Mike…great professional presentation with a ton of learning!  I really appreciate you taking the time to tailor the presentation to drive our desired outcomes. You nailed it!  Safe travels!"

Mike Catalina
General Manager, Huttig Building Products

"Mike, what more can I say, we gave you a challenging assignment; communicate to a group of scientists, help them develop themselves and stay accountable, and I must say you delivered every time.  Your Keynote at our five seminars set the tone each day.  My customers were thrilled that we would take the time to help develop them in their careers. They were energized by your style and delivery. Countless positive evaluations were received from our customers highlighting your session as most valuable. As you know my scientific presenters want you back to workshop on concepts and develop their teams. Great Job, I look forward to working with you on future projects."

John Dimare
Americas Marketing Program Manager, Agilent Technologies

"It was great working with you! I appreciate the ease of working with you and your team. Your responsiveness and overall consulting approach was valued and appreciated. Thank you for your dynamic and passionate presentation that left people talking and wanting more! You created an inspiring and compelling message that allowed the meeting to end on a high note!"

Teri Schanck
Senior Director, Rite Aid

"Mike, Thank you for your excellent presentation to our Leadership/Management Team.  The entire team of more than 350 was very positive and energized about your presentation as well as the book.  The material and presentation was absolutely powerful and engaging. Our leaders were able to apply what they learned to their daily routines.  As always, it is a pleasure to work with someone who is professional, articulate and bright – and to partner with someone who makes every effort to understand our business model and key issues and imbed them into your presentation. Talk to you soon."

Todd Haines
Vice President, Human Resources, PharMerica

"Thanks Mike. I'm definitely looking forward to some additional conversation. Your message last night and again this morning is totally in line with all the things we have going on with my current employer. That was the best session I have ever attended in my 32 years in business. I will be reaching out to you soon."

Mike Wardlow
Director, Cedar Creek

"Thanks, Mike.  To the contrary thank YOU for your willingness to meet and work with us on your own time to customize and create an amazing event. Your informative and inspirational presentations and messages resonated with the entire audience.  I have heard some very positive accolades about your expertise. The group was thrilled - and that is saying something.  For example our Medical Director of Neonatology asked for your contact information as we wants to invite you to their national organization Pediatrix, to be a keynote presenter. We have had many speakers present to this group. You were by far the best we have had."

Rob Curry
President & CEO, Citrus Valley Health Plan

"What I found amazing is how succinct your message is. You cut to the heart of the matter. Your style, passion and energy was astonishing. But the content was even better. I had 12 members tell me you were the best speaker we’ve ever had."

Scott Tetz

"I’ve attended well over 100 events like this in my career and you were the only speaker who kept may attention the entire time and engaged me. I learned more during your keynote than I thought possible. You were by far the best I have even seen."
