Michael Crossland‘s moving, funny and inspirational story touched the hearts and minds of our guests. We have received outstanding feedback from our guests regarding Michael’s story, delivery and the positive impact it has already made to their world.

One of the single most inspirational speakers we’ve ever had the pleasure of bringing into our organization. Michael Crossland’s story is truly inspiring and humbling. It was an absolute pleasure to meet him and hear his story of overcoming adversity, and living a life of service to others. The standing ovation from our audience lasted so long, we barely had time for Q&A.  At the end of Michael’s session, over 300 attendees lined up to personally thank Michael for inspiring them.  Michael greeted each of them with a hug.  Truly outstanding!

I have never experienced a presenter that could hold a large audience for so long through the highs and lows of what is called life. Our employees have been buzzing ever since and personally touched by you sharing your journey and positive thinking and actions. You really have made such a positive difference to our employees and their loved ones. One of the most powerful outcomes has been to put our ‘problems’ into perspective and how we use so much negative energy on the most trivial of things.

This is a person who exposed his heart and soul and makes an impact on ALL of the audience.  I have never laughed so much, or nearly cried so much, in an hour in my entire life. He reached out to the delegates and I seen big burly men give in to the emotions that Michael Crossland generated. Michael's presentation without any doubt was the best I have ever witnessed and will never be superseded, thank God that Michael does what he does and may he live forever doing it.

Michael Crossland was absolutely amazing – an incredible life story told incredibly well. We have been fortunate over the years to have worked with many key note presenters and I can say unreservedly that Michael has made the most impact. Our people are still talking about the lessons learned!
Marshall White Real Estate

We engaged Michael Crossland to address 1500 exercise professionals and fitness business owners at Filex, the annual fitness industry fitness convention. Michael had the audience enthralled from the get go- his easy affable manner and down to earth sense of humour engaged everyone the moment he was on stage. As Michael’s presentation moved into his life story the connection grew and it would be fair to say that there was not one attendee that wasn’t moved and inspired by this extraordinary man. We highly recommend him to other organisations looking for an inspirational reminder of what is truly important in the real world. Michael Crossland was truly one out of the box. His story was at times heart wrenching, but the overarching message of refusing to let adversity define you struck a chord with our audience that I don’t believe we have hit before, or will manage to again. Never have I seen 500 people leap to their feet so quickly in a unified standing ovation. As a professional speaker, Michael’s attention to detail, ability to speak to brief and skill with an audience’s focus was second to none. From a booking point of view, he was friendly, approachable and entirely focused on what we were trying to achieve at our event. I cannot recommend him enough.

Michael Crossland is such an inspiration – his story captured us all and the response from all at the Conference has been amazing. Michael gives so much of himself in his presentation and delivers such a strong message around never giving up, pushing to achieve everything you can and giving back. The feedback from Michael’s session, from everyone at the Conference has been amazing – I have never had one speaker have such an impact at a Conference.

Words escape me to truly express my thanks for the amazing journey you took us all on today as the keynote speaker at the HR Teams event in Sydney and the roller coast ride of emotions you evoked in us all. I feel incredibly humbled and honoured to have met you and want you to know how much you touched everyone in the room today (myself included) with your warmth, passion, incredible spirit and courage in the face of such adversity. The room was charged full of raw energy and emotion when you finished and many members commented to me afterwards how incredibly inspirational you were and how powerful your messages, learning's and insights were. My congratulations. I feel very privileged to have met you and wish you well on your continued inspirational journey.

We have never had a speaker connect with the audience the way Michael did, he is truly a remarkable man and touches everyone he comes across. My favorite comment from a delegate was “Michael makes me want to be a better person”. I would recommend him to anyone looking to inspire their team.
Henry Schein Halas

Absolutely brilliant – connected with the audience on a really deep level and drew the whole room in with his story. You could literally hear a pin drop.

Michael Crossland was amazing. He is so inspiring and fun to listen to at the same time. His talk was engaging, captivating and powerful.  This will be remembered and talked about for years to come.  We wish Michael and his family all the best!
Jones Lang La Salle

I just wanted to thank you again for the amazing session yesterday! You have such an inspirational story, with so many ups and downs - the team was very moved! I don’t think there was a dry eye in the house as you shared your life experiences. 

I am glad you recommended doing your session just before lunch as it would have been hard for anyone to follow you immediately on to stage for another session. 

Many people said you were the best speaker we have ever had come and speak to us! And some were still processing the emotionally journey you took us on. Hopefully the team will take away many of your messages as it could always be worse and we need to take advantage of every day. I did overhear one colleague at drinks who was replying to a colleague who complained about only getting apples and peaches for afternoon tea (rather than cake/brownies etc) – ‘well maybe next time we will give you a bowl of rice once every two days and see if you are happy with that…’ 

Thanks again for sharing your story, congrats on the birth of your son – so amazing – and we wish you and your family nothing but the best for your future! 

You are a true hero!!

Your achievements in the face of adversity in both business and sport are truly remarkable. Hearing about your tenacity and persistence in the face of so many hurdles was inspirational and highly motivating for those of us who work in a competitive sales environment and have our wins and disappointments, albeit no comparison with yours. Perhaps your experience in sales and sales management helped but we felt you connected particularly well with our people from the outset and the feedback since has been nothing short of exceptional. We are all better for the experience.

Recently, the Toronto Blue Jays had the distinct honor to hear Michael Crossland speak. His story of perseverance was simply incredible. Not only did he captivate all of our players, but our coaches as well. He knew his audience, and was able to convey his inspirational message to everyone in attendance. Numerous players were eager to stay connected with Mr. Crossland and volunteered to help him however they could. His tireless work across the globe, in particular in Haiti, is simply remarkable. He has made such a difference in so many lives in a relatively short amount of time. He also shared his journey on the baseball field and capped it off with throwing batting practice to some of our biggest prospects!  His interaction with our players and overall upbeat attitude is something that any baseball manager cannot get enough of. Throughout my own baseball journey, I have never seen or heard such a positive perspective on not only the game, but on life itself. I would recommend Mr. Crossland to share his story with athletes, companies, and any other organization around the globe. We were honored to have him be part of the "Blue Jay Family" for a day, and we look forward to having him back soon.
