Testimonials for Michael Milton OAM
Michael Milton was very entertaining and inspiring.
Australian Seed Federation
Michael spoke at our company conference. He is an exception storyteller and has a fabulous onstage presence. His content was relevant and delivered in a fun, honest style that kept the audience engaged and on the edge of their seats. Michael communicated leadership, diversity and his ability to challenge comfort levels, empowering the audience to think about new ways to tackle problems in business. We summed it up by saying, when faced with challenges, think, “What would Michael do?”. I would recommend Michael for any conference format that needs to ignite passion and leave people with a strengthened resolve to challenge assumptions.
Michael’s presentation was fantastic. He has a great story to tell and does so with wit. His ‘matter of fact’ style was appreciated by our audience. Excellent speaker, entertaining and inspiring with great humour.
