Holding the dual designations of CSP (Certified Speaking Professional) and CPAE (Council of Peers Award for Excellence) from the National Speakers Association, an achievement attained by fewer than 1% of all professional speakers worldwide, Mikki is a member of the prestigious Speaker Hall of Fame.

An award-winning speaker and Master Chair with Vistage, the world’s leading executive organization, she has spoken for heads of state including Bush, Clinton and even Nelson Mandela in his South African home. Her client roster is vast, from the Million Dollar Round Table to the IRS. Featured on the front page of The Wall Street Journal, in Forbes and named one of the "Outstanding Connecticut Women of the Decade" by the United Nations, ABC did a television documentary about her life. Her one woman show at Second City Chicago was a one night only, that sold out four performances of She Came, She Wore, She Conquered…shoes, sex and other stories.

 

She has spoken in every US state, every Canadian province and every continent in the world, except Antarctica…where she can’t wear her stilettos.

Storytelling is a timeless tradition. We are wired for communicating through, and learning from, stories. There are many universal truths that we all share and our messages get lost if we’re not connecting to hearts AND minds. Mastering the art and heart of storytelling will help you persuade, influence and motivate.

Wouldn't you love to dazzle your audience whenever you make a presentation, even if it's an audience of one? Do you choke and go blank? Or fumble and mumble your way through? Or do you knock 'em dead? The ability to speak in front of people is an essential success skill, and no other opens more doors, creates more visibility, and gives you more opportunity to exercise power.

What is the most critical and untaught skill that you must have today? More and more experts agree: it's knowing people. Know people - know what makes Walt unique, and understand what Susan wants and needs - and your relationships will change. You will dramatically improve your effectiveness with the people you work with, the people you supervise, the people you're trying to motivate, clients, spouse, significant other, kids...everyone!
