With most of our audience being criminal justice practitioners, and in today’s trying times his tips and tools were greatly appreciated.

In this eye opening and paradigm shifting talk, Michael will share with you the following:

  •  The three stages that he believes must occur for change to not only take hold but be sustained and not become “flavor of the month”.
  • His 4-step process he developed to overcome conflicts and concerns that can get in the way of change occurring.
  • The key roadblocks for both leaders and your front line when it comes to creating ownership throughout the company and how to overcome them.

(Read More)

In this profound talk that will shift how you think about who your Leaders are and how to develop them, you will learn:

  • Michael’s 12 Attributes and Behaviors of Great Leaders and Managers and why many leaders fall short and what to do about it.
  • Why we typically select the wrong people to be our Leaders and Managers and how to change our habits.
  • How to develop your winning team in a manner that helps them and their teams be successful.
  • They will learn a paradigm shift about how to lead in a way that drives massive business results but is counter-intuitive to what they normally do.

SITTING ON THE SAME SIDE OF THE TABLE: THE ART OF COLLABORATIVE SELLING

Michael talks about his philosophy of selling on which his book is based. You will learn how to separate yourself from other salespeople locked into traditional presentations and Powerpoint. You will understand how to create dynamic conversations that lead to mutually beneficial and highly profitable business relationships.

He will also share his powerful LACE methodology for overcoming objections, questions, concerns and conflicts. He will show you how price is rarely the issue and negotiations don’t need to occur when you can sit by side by side with your customer to find a solution that’s good for both of you.

PRESENTING WITH IMPACT, PERSUASIVENESS AND PRESENCE

Michael will teach you how to present in a manner that helps you create impact and influence while also being authentic. You will learn how to overcome the number 1 fear: Public Speaking.

You will learn how to turn your presentations into conversations and stop “Death by Powerpoint”. You will learn tips on body language, how to eliminate filler words and maximize your presence in front of both small and large audiences.

LET THEM SEE YOU SWEAT: MY PERSONAL JOURNEY WITH STRESS

Michael’s personal message: “You may think with the title of this talk, it’s about being calm and cool in the face of pressure. It’s actually more literal than that. My body actually stopped sweating. And I had to learn how to get it started again naturally as, after exploring things medically, it was clear no pill or prescription could help me.

This was one of a variety of unusual and harsh health issues I faced that were either wholly or partially induced by stress. They were messages my body was sending me that I needed to change my lifestyle. This talk is about my journey, one I think many can relate to. This is not about what I’ve overcome. It’s about what I’ve learned in the hope it can help others.

With people becoming more aware about stress and its incredible health impacts, many of us have found that we can pay a hefty price if we ignore or don’t acknowledge it. And for me, as I believe for others as well, it went completely undiagnosed by the medical community. I will not only share my stories, I’ll share stories of others including some miraculous experiences that touched my heart and I believe will touch yours too.”

Michael is a truly pleasure to work with. Here’s two short comments from the app to supplement (and to also keep this note brief): “Michael is a solid speaker. [He] talks high level concepts but [also] provides stories as an example and high action item lists.” And, “[Michael offered a] top-notch presentation with invaluable insight.” I appreciate that Michael comes down from the stage and talks with the audience, and also creates an interactive presentation that isn’t PowerPoint driven. It’s about him connecting with his audience. I’m looking forward to Michael speaking at future events for us. As noted above, I was responsible for running our four days of conference education. As you can imagine, it’s a lot to run. Michael certainly did his part to make my life easier! I’d highly recommend Michael as a speaker for your next event.

Michael brings great energy to his talks, something critical in normal times and even more important in today’s virtual world. Michael’s talk was extremely well received as he created engagement and connection with our audience.

Jenna Kelly, Director of Community & Content Strategy

Michael’s presentation to a large group of educational leaders from schools in the East Asia Regional Council of Schools was superb. His presentation was highly informed, light hearted (and funny), warm and inviting. Feedback from the participants was universally positive—for the content and insights offered. His presentation was a success because his wise counsel came from experience, much of it hard earned, and because it came from the heart as well as the head.

I just wanted to take a moment to thank you once again for the leadership training you held at VPE. I was recently promoted again since our last conversation, my new position is Plant Manager for all of VPE. If I had to point to a single event that led me down this road of opportunity, I would have to give the credit to your leadership class. Your class provided us with the opportunity to communicate with a solutions based mindset that is positive. The other really important aspect of the training was the development of soft skills. I am of the opinion that this skill is the most important and first skill that should be mastered if you are going to lead. Lastly, the one important element of the training that cannot be overstated, is the exposure some people received as a result of the training structure. The people that usually see opportunities are the ones we know about. Again, thank you for the training and the impact it left on our organization.

Ahadi Martin, Plant Manager

Thank you so much for your great presentation. You got rave reviews from everyone I talked to. Comments ranged from “He was so genuine” to “He had some great ideas” to “He was the best speaker we’ve had in a long time.

I would like to highly recommend Michael Levin as a speaker. He delivered a presentation on overcoming client objections at our Women in Consulting-East Bay satellite meeting. He is a dynamic speaker who relates to his audience easily. The professional women of our group thoroughly enjoyed his talk. Michael provided new perspectives that he developed around selling and handling objections and gave us tools that will be effective in helping us build revenue. His business and consulting experience gave him tremendous credibility with our members; his successes as a coach and sales executive are testimony to his knowledge. Women in Consulting (WIC) is a professional organization that helps consultants build skills through networking, support and education in best practices. Michael has already been booked for other WIC events because of the insights he brings to our membership. He also adds energy, inspiration and a little comic relief, all of which were very welcome.

I strongly recommend hiring Michael Levin as a public speaker for your company and your clients. I have had the pleasure of attending several of Mike’s presentations. He has a warm, friendly style that engages the audience well. He is an expert in the areas of sales, marketing, entrepreneurialism, product development and general wealth building. Speaking in public effectively is truly a rare skill and art. I know your clients will enjoy the experience and give excellent feedback on any of Mike’s presentations, courses or workshops.

I would like to recommend Michael to help you develop your business and marketing strategies. Michael has helped me with my import/export consulting business. Even though he didn’t have a background in this industry, he was able to work with me to help me develop new concepts to significantly grow my business. What made it great is we not only developed plans that will work, they were tailored to fit my strengths and skill sets. He has even provided me referrals to help me get new business

Collaborative, empathetic and highly effective, Michael’s LACE method for handling objections smoothes the sales relationship for us “sales-phobes” and produces results that work for everyone involved.

I would like to provide a recommendation for Michael Levin. He has been guiding me on an idea for a new product that I would like to take to market. Michael has helped me in many ways. First of all, and most importantly for me, he has kept me on track. It is very easy to waste time and money going in the wrong directions. He has saved me a tremendous amount of time by keeping me focused and pointed in the right direction. He also saved me a great deal of money helping me to avoid spending needlessly and providing me methodologies to reduce my costs. One example I never knew of was how to protect my idea while not having to go through the expense of a full blown patent. Michael has also provided me marketing and sales ideas that I had not considered. These options helped to provide additional revenue opportunities for me while also minimizing my financial risk. If you are an entrepreneur who has a small business or are looking to start a business, I would highly recommend Michael to help you. You will get your money’s worth

Debbie Curran, Entrepreneur

I’d like to provide a strong recommendation for Michael Levin as a Business and Sales Consultant. My company, The Full Plate, has two retail outlets offering Ready-To-Cook and Read-To-Eat meals. I wanted to launch my line in grocery stores. While I had significant experience in this arena as a former senior Safeway executive, I knew I needed help. Michael has come in with his unique brand of consulting. He has not only consulted, he has been with me every step of the way. He helped me put together my plan for the launch and he has helped me get this venture off the ground. We have made joint calls with distributors that have been incredibly successful. We have accomplished so much more than I could have hoped for in a very short period of time. Michael’s business acumen and sales methodologies have put me on a path for a successful and profitable rollout. I’d like to highly suggest, if you want to take your business to the next level, contacting Michael and finding out how he can help you

Lisa Alumkal, President and Founder

The Full Plate

Michael’s leadership philosophy and methodology have greatly helped our employees feel more empowered and take greater ownership. They are now leading critical initiatives to improve our company and our processes. As well, it’s a pleasure to see improvement in our communication amongst our teams and how we work better together to find collaborative solutions.
