I had the pleasure of hearing Antarctic Mike speak during our Goodwill conference in Tucson. His story of perseverance inspired me personally and professionally to work harder, to commit fully and to do everything with passion and with heart. I highly recommend Mike if you are looking to get your team impassioned.
I had the privilege to listen to Antarctic Mike this morning and I can easily say that he was one of the best keynote speakers I have listened too. He has the unique ability to truly engage his listeners and his enthusiasm is infectious. The number one thing that comes across in his presentation is his passion for making those around him better. Mike takes unique life experiences and stories and does a great job of relating them to the real world and in our case leaders in the business world. I know I left the meeting fired up and ready to make those around me better. If you have the opportunity to listen to or speak to Mike, take it.
I want you to imagine a man who is dedicated, disciplined, and passionate enough to train for 2 years in a freezer in order to prepare himself for an Antarctic marathon… Now ask yourself, do you think that person phones in his speeches and is lazy in his preparation for your company or organization. Of course not!
Mike has everything you want in a keynote speaker. He has a great story, amazing energy and passion, and he shares fundamental truths of the human existence that enlighten everyone willing to hear them. Mike shares several success principles, just one could change your life, but I found two that hit home with me: the power of practice and dealing invisible disabilities.
If you want to know more, you will have to call Antarctic Mike! As a fellow speaker and entertainer, I can tell you that you won’t find many others who have the complete package that Mike does. He is a professional-level speaker, who has actually accomplished success in life and business, who speaks fundamental success principles, and is passionate about making a connection with your audience.
Antarctic Mike was the Keynote Speaker at IntegraCare’s 2014 Leadership Conference. Mike gave a truly inspiring and motivating speech that moved so many professionals at the conference. As a former military officer, I have been a student of leadership for many years, and Antarctic Mike’s presentation taught me aspects of leadership, discipline and sacrifice that I have never considered until now.
Extremely enlightening! If your company, organization or group is seeking to take it’s leadership and performance to the next level, I highly recommend that you give Antarctic Mike the opportunity to educate and inspire you!
Antarctic Mike was able to use the extremes of his experience to reveal the truth about our day to day as leaders in business. His genuine energy and excitement is evident in his storytelling and his belief in the messages he shares. The great thing is that he’s not done visiting the extremes of the human experience, there will be more he learns and more he can teach us in years to come.
I have been attending the ERE Conference for the last 10 years. In that 10 years I honestly believe there has never been a better Professional Keynote Speaker than Antarctic Mike. What makes Mike so special is his ability to draw you into his story, his passion/zest, pictures, videos and animation. Sadly I have very little attention span but, within minutes I was so enthusiastic about Mikes story that I felt compelled to recommend him. He is engaging, gregarious, and genuine. I highly recommend him for any large events, company staff meetings, conferences etc., if you want guidance with leadership, team building, facing the impossible, and overcoming and conquering your Antarctic!
I was fortunate to have been a part of one of Mike’s seminars. Everybody in the room could not get enough of Mike’s story, and hung on every word of this riveting life experience. I had previously read the book “Shakeltons Way” which made Mike’s story that much more exciting for me.
At the time, I knew Mike was writing a book and I have been anxiously awaiting the publishing. I just ordered the book and can’t wait to read it, as I am sure I won’t b able to put it down.
The opportunity to hear Mike relate his compelling story-telling style to real-world business principles is truly special. He spoke to my Vistage Key group today and I have immediate take-away I can put to use.
I had the opportunity to see Mike give a presentation at our local SHRM chapter meeting. Mike’s presentation about his journey, his hero’s, and ultimately his management lessons were inspiring. So inspiring in fact, I started reading South by Sir Ernest Shackleton.
Mike’s message is captivating, motivating, and informative. I recommend Mike as a speaker for your management teams and employees.
I had the pleasure of seeing Mike speak at the AA-ISP conference this past week and was truly inspired. Mike’s message and delivery on inside sales hiring and recruiting was inspiring. He has a unique ability to show the value in almost any job posting or organization. It was truly remarkable to watch him capture and command a group of sales leaders in a matter of minutes.
