Don’t let the color of the hair fool you.  I am very serious about leadership, sales and the customer experience.  Throughout my career, I have been successful in dealing with serious business issues by crafting them in a way that is fun, relatable, and memorable.  I describe what I do as Serious Business Training with Flair.

I am an executive leader, sales trainer, and author, with over 25 years of experience delivering motivational speeches and training sessions to audiences worldwide.  I have a unique range of experience, from my beginnings as a Catholic school teacher to managing hundreds of people and hundreds of millions of dollars.

As a Vice President of US Sales for two global medical device companies, I managed net revenue exceeding $50 million annually and managed as many as 500 employees.  I have built teams, hired, trained and developed both leaders and front-line sales professionals, and navigated two large companies through vast structural and operational change.

I have created and executed business transformation initiatives across hundreds of businesses, built leadership development programs for numerous C-Level executives, and helped companies generate significant additional annual revenue.  I set the platform for businesses to thrive both culturally and financially, through advanced leadership and vision.

In 2016, I published my first book, Tell Me More, to share my leadership mantra.  The concept sounds simple, and it is.  But is not easy.  It is not easy to change the way you think, act and react, unless or until you are willing to change your vision.  Whether I am speaking to thousands in an annual meeting, or working with a small team, I can help you do this.  Today.

Today I lead Sherlock Enterprises, LLC, my Philadelphia-based training organization.  We provide corporations and business leaders with engaging presentations and actionable strategies on leadership, employee development, customer experience, and sales transformation.  I share my expertise through stories of success as well as epic failures.  And when I work with you, you will realize that whether I am there for an hour, a day or a week, that I am on your team.

I hold a B.A. in Education from Eastern Washington University, and have delivered key presentations at annual conferences both within the US and internationally.  Outside of my professional life, I am an avid urban gardener, a passionate home chef and a struggling student of the art of mediation.  I enjoy traveling to countries around the world, and constantly look forward to immersing myself in new experiences, languages, and cultures.  I can’t wait to meet you![/vc_column_text][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/3″][vc_single_image image=”60″ img_size=”full”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row full_width_row=”true”][vc_column][vc_text_separator title=”Explore More” style=”dotted”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row margin_bottom=”-70px” css=”.vc_custom_1502911548039{margin-bottom: -70px !important;}”][vc_column width=”1/2″][ult_buttons btn_title=”See Michael in Action” btn_link=”url:http%3A%2F%2Fwww.shockyourpotential.com%2Fabout-michael%2Fmichael-in-action%2F|||” btn_size=”ubtn-block” btn_title_color=”#ffffff” btn_bg_color=”#02bac4″ btn_hover=”ubtn-center-dg-bg” btn_bg_color_hover=”#abd255″ icon=”Defaults-play-circle-o” icon_size=”32″ btn_icon_pos=”ubtn-sep-icon-top-push”][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/2″][ult_buttons btn_title=”Read Thoughts from the Coffee Table” btn_link=”url:http%3A%2F%2Fwww.shockyourpotential.com%2Fthought-of-the-day%2F|||” btn_size=”ubtn-block” btn_title_color=”#ffffff” btn_bg_color=”#f06898″ btn_hover=”ubtn-center-dg-bg” btn_bg_color_hover=”#ee6346″ icon=”Defaults-comment-o” icon_size=”32″ btn_icon_pos=”ubtn-sep-icon-top-push”][/vc_column][/vc_row]
