Michele has written several excellent articles for our magazines. She is a thought-provoker, an instigator, and an articulator who can pull together threads from everything from nanotechnology to strategic thinking–and make it easy to understand for the layperson. A marketing whiz, for sure, but her talents also are far-ranging and eclectic.

JodieAnn Cady, CMP, CTA, CMM, Michigan Realtors
Michele is an engaging, inspirational speaker who uses her own life experiences to illustrate how everyone can be a leader from riding her Harley cross country, to volunteerism, and having the courage to get out of her comfort zone to create new exciting opportunities for herself. Because she is so “real” with her audience, she inspires others to dare to believe that they can create the opportunities they want, desire and deserve as well. And they will walk away from hearing her feeling like they just got advice from a good friend.

Michele was the facilitator and faculty member at my CMM program. As the facilitator she was part coach, part cheerleader, part mentor – always there to keep the group on track. “Focus” and “strategic” were two words we heard quite a bit that week – both necessary to keep us on target. Michele lives and breathes marketing. She is fun-loving, intelligent, creative and no-nonsense all rolled into one.

Michele is an educated and well-respected speaker. What I respect most about Michele is her availability and her radiating desire to help people reach their goals. I think that in itself sets her aside from most speakers. It is the “TLC” factor which truly makes her shine.
