Michael’s motto is simple… Look to help others before asking for help

Michael is best described as the Referral Marketing Guru - he specialises in transforming business growth across every corner of the planet using his 9 profit accelerators in the Limbic Advantage.

With 2 bestselling books (and a 3rd on the way), the #1 referral marketing podcast on I-Tunes for the past 5 years and presentations delivered in over 20 countries, he is clearly sought after to provide advice and wisdom for the smallest of businesses to the largest of organisations.

Michael is able to share his observations, experiences and research from around the world to identify the exact steps any organisation needs to take to become more extraordinary.

He delivers his advice in a down to earth, simple and often hilarious way. Michael has been a entrepreneurial commentator for many years, sharing both his observations and his realisations with audiences in INC.com, Huffington Post, On NBCS, CBS, ABC, Newscorp and many others.

As a keynote presenter, Michael's authenticity is one of his greatest assets. He has the rare ability to hold a mirror up to people and show them exactly what's wrong and how to change it FAST, with unapologetic honesty and a quick wit.

Michael imparts wisdom generously, but with clear expectations – he doesn’t just want to leave a warm and fuzzy lasting impression on his audience, he wants to have a lasting impact on the way they choose to live, work and do business as a result of the information he shares and stories he tells.

My Why Is Simple...

"To Inspire Service Professionals All Over The Globe To Be More Profitable Than Ever Before, Win Every day and Play A Bigger Game, So They Can Make A Greater Impact and Contribute More To Society."

Michael's advice is a combination of street smart wisdom, practical concepts and productive triggers, derived from the hard learned lessons with his own trial and error, as well as years of close observation and identification of the characteristics shared by both the really successful and the really unsuccessful.

Michael's journey started as a school teacher and elite level basketball coach. Two Olympic games, multiple national titles and countless state titles was a pretty good stint. But he knew there was more. In 2009 he left the teaching world and started his first business, a tutoring company. Fast forward a decade and Michael has created 7 businesses, selling 6 of them along the way.

Having transformed in so many ways... School teacher to a business owner with 180+ contractors on his team (twice).

5 Ways To Stand Out Above Anyone Else In Your Market & Create NEw Clients Immediately

Most the time we think we are doing a great job, but really are we? It's the little things we do everyday that we just don't think about and the effect it is having on evoking positive emotions in our prospects, clients and wider networks.

The language we use, the processes we have, the communication we send out and the actions we take. I can guarantee you are shooting yourself in the foot and leaving tens of thousands of dollars sitting on the table in missed opportunities.

In this presentation I'm going to show you the 5 fastest fixes to start turning your business from a good business to a extraordinary business, that evokes positive emotions and is constantly spoken about.


Transforming Your Referral Systems In 3 Easy Steps

There is an art to getting referrals and no it's not just simply doing a good job and asking. Most businesses throw mud at the wall and hope that they get referrals, when in fact we could just as easily create what we call a Million Dollar Referral System.

Using referral sources, using our networks and leveraging through partnerships will help grow your business 10 fold without spending a cent on paid marketing.

In this presentation I'm going to walk you through how to build referral opportunities on a daily basis and layout the simple stepping stones to take to turn your business into a referral machine.


The Easiest Way To Turn Your Clients Into Walking, Talking, Ranting, Raving Billboards

Getting a client is just the start, having the goal to then turn them into a walking, talking, ranting, raving billboard should be what excites you.

How do you create stories in your business for your clients to share about you? How do you create magical experiences? How do you foster a relationship with them and show them that you care?

For 99% of businesses they just simply don't!

In this presentation I'm going to show you how to use brain chemicals in your business and on your clients. I'm going to show you how you must BE and THINK in order to increase your retainment and referrals 10 fold.


Stop Wasting Your Time On More Tactics & Just Start Winning

Whether we like it or not, business and personal go together. If one is out of whack then the other will be also. Most business owners don't know how to win! They don't know what it takes to do the monotonous day after day after day.

Having lost 75 pounds, started doing physical challenges to raise money for charity, what was a personal transformation quickly became a HUGE business transformation also.

In this presentation I'll share my personal story, what winning your day looks like. Why we are destined to fail because of our make up and primal instincts and what you actually need to do to get the self belief, commitment and confidence to change the world.


The Powerful Napkin Plan That Beats Every Form Of Marketing You've EVER Done

Businesses believe it's about having SEO, FB ads, Google PPC, going to networking events and the list goes on. If I get that right then I'll have more leads and finally be able to grow my business.

But, how wrong we are. A profitable, amazing business is about 'Our Why' , 'Our What' and 'Our How' and the best part is this can all be done on a single napkin.

In this presentation I'll share the napkin formula that will change your thinking, change your business and inspire you and your staff into greatness. The napkin is simple to do, easy to share and probably the most powerful element of any business.. Ever!

John Tse - SME Association Of Australia

I have known Michael for many years through some of his other businesses and our Chamber of Commerce and had the opportunity of having Michael speak at one of our Inspiring Women events.

Michael's is always so well received and extraordinarily simply explained.

Considering the diverse small business audience we had, he engaged and excited the business owners with the potential of growing their businesses and their ability to engage with their customers.

He gave specific tips and could assist with helpful information specific to their industries. I have no hesitation in recommending Michael as a speaker and/or trainer no matter what industry your business is with.
