I can’t say enough good things about the experience Joseph provided for the agents and advisors at our annual World Series of Sales. He was the first of our featured speakers and he set a high bar for all who would follow with a compelling and enthusiastic presentation that both reminded us of the importance of going above and beyond for our clients and provided us with key insights into how to make that happen across our organizations. Joseph’s real-life examples really helped drive home that all business truly is personal and that if we’re not finding a way to reach our clients on a personal level, we’re doing a disservice to them and to ourselves. I’ve already had several agents and advisors tell me that they’ve purchased Joseph’s books and are working with their staffs to begin implementing his ideas. I would wholeheartedly recommend him to anyone who wanted to help build capacity in their organization for creating positive and memorable client experiences.
Joseph provided us with an absolutely phenomenal "Michelli Experience!" He wowed our front line staff with his presentation on service; many of our folks commented that it was probably the best workshop they had ever attended. He also provided exceptional insights into leaving a leadership legacy with our donors and special friends of Lethbridge College. I have no hesitation in recommending Joseph as an outstanding speaker!

Dr. Michelli provided an energetic and thought provoking kick-off to our annual client conference. His energy and ability to relate the experiences of his research with leading edge organizations immediately captured and inspired the audience. Our clients gave us kudos for his insights into the opportunities that exist to connect all employees to the daily delivery of a company's mission. His central message is right on the mark and even more so for organizations trying to remain competitive in today's challenging economic climate.
Over the years I have enjoyed the privilege of hearing many top business and leadership speakers, including Joseph Michelli. Prior to hearing him speak, I had read his book "The Starbucks Experience" and thought it was a dynamic overview of Starbucks and more importantly, full of excellent business lessons for us all. But hearing Joseph live was a special occasion. Joseph was phenomenal. His presentation was absolutely full of content and practical application. His style was humorous yet sobering and his personal story was the grand finale that makes him a true "Icon" in the speaker world today. I will seek out opportunities to hear Joseph again. He is truly one of the best business speakers available today.
