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!
Learn how to achieve your goals in this powerful, life-changing program that deals with potential, inspiration, change and perspective. It addresses life skills, quality of life issues and wholeness as it relates to achieving balance in our lives.
Life is full of interruptions: birth, death, divorce, relocation, new job, health challenges, financial disasters, events that shape our lives and give us opportunities to evaluate, change, grow and find our purpose in life.
There are times in our lives when we wonder if our vision is in sync with our values. When our purpose, our ideals and our results are not in harmony, we are out of balance. Maintaining a perspective, when we are racing to keep up with time, in an era which always seems to be accelerating, is one of life's greatest challenges.

8 Presentation Tips for Your Virtual Webinar
clients + Testimonials
"On your first day in Durban, you presented to a skeptical group of chauvinistic top South African businessmen and before long, had them eating out of your hand. On your second day, you presented to a large group of men and women from many walks of life and cultures, at the home of President Nelson Mandela... This was a challenging audience that you handled with your usual superb intuition... You are always prepared leaving nothing to chance. You clearly touched many lives and made your mark here in South Africa - the first question is when are you coming back."
Cathy Yuill, National Coordinator
South Africa, Nike Network
"I hired Mikki for our trade association in the petroleum industry after I saw her knock the socks off of a huge audience of entrepreneurs in Las Vegas. Even before she presented for us, I needed a speaker on leadership on short notice with a limited budget and instantly Mikki sent me the perfect speaker."
Ned Bowman, Executive Director
Florida Petroleum Marketers and Convenience Store Association
