"I've had the opportunity to experience Mike both virtually and live, in-person. Regardless of how you decide to work with him, you're going to walk away with strategies to better navigate through adversity, build focus and enhance overall professional performance. His content, stories, and mindsets could not be more relevant at this time!"
"Mike’s message on the power of the present moment was incredibly impactful. He spent time up front getting to understand our business, people and industry and was able to seamlessly tie his talk into our North America Annual Meeting theme. Mike brought a unique combination of energy and compassion that really connected with our people. And, I know his message not only impacted our people’s lives, but will support us in reaching our strategic initiatives."
"Listening to and learning from Mike has not only been a positive experience but also a powerful one. In a world of change, he has a knack for simple tools that help you focus on a path forward. It's been great to connect with him over the past year, both one-on-one and in larger groups – he's able to keep everyone engaged and it will be great to see him in-person one day soon."
"If you’re looking to inspire and elevate your people, look no further. Mike helped our leaders really focus on purpose-driven, heartfelt leadership that will have a huge impact on our culture of belonging and well-being."
"Mike was literally the perfect choice to kick off our event and set the tone for the rest of the day with Jesse Itzler and Mike Tyson. The basketball stories had takeaways for a general audience even if you don't follow the game and left everyone wanting more. I couldn't believe how fast the hour went by! We would have him back in a heartbeat!"
"If you want someone who understands the power of presence, performance, and people then Mike Lee is your go-to person. Every encounter we have exchanged left me a wiser and bolder leader and human being. Mike knows the theory, the practice, and how to deliver them. What else do you need if you are looking to build presence, resiliency, leadership, and peak performance."
"Mike’s presentation today to our sales team was extremely relevant in dealing with our state of constant distractions and hurricane of emotions. He did a fantastic job."
"Mike, your keynote speaker session at the recent NHRMA conference was great! Mindfulness, and meditation, specifically, was more of a buzzword to me heading into the session. You took it from a buzzword to something real, tangible. More importantly, your examples inspired me to action. Thank you!"
"Thank you for kicking off the 87th Arkansas Municipal League Convention with an amazing keynote presentation. Your keynote was so relevant to this past year’s challenges posed by the ongoing pandemic. The feedback that we have received has been overwhelmingly positive. Thank you, again."
"We hosted Mike Lee for an impactful performance coaching event for our members. Even months later our members speak very highly of his session because they've used his strategies to keep them on track to achieving their goals. The unique combination of relatable stories plus actionable strategies really made this program stick."
"So inspiring! The world needs to hear what you have to say!"
"Mike is one of my go-to resources for expanding my own practice and personal training in mindfulness. He has a powerful personal story that accompanies the keynote and his book is a great addendum to help people jump-start their own practice."
"Just fantastic. People laughed, they cried and were able to implement his strategies immediately."
"Mike’s guidance, mindsets, and strategies were instrumental in my success on and off the court. Practicing these strategies has been a big driver in ultimately fulfilling my childhood dream of playing in the NBA. Like so many other concepts, there is a huge crossover from what applies in the sports world to leadership, organizational performance, and personal transformation."
"Mike effectively introduced the basics of meditation and demonstrated to my team how it was applicable in their daily professional lives. The stories he shares illustrated how mindfulness can decrease stress, improve the ability to focus and work more efficiently. His presentation had many practical takeaways."
"I appreciated your authenticity, your vulnerability, and your humbleness. Your sharing of personal examples brought many of the concepts alive."
"When I hear Mike speak I’m always taking away concepts to use with my NBA and corporate clients."
"As someone who’s built, led, and sold a multimillion-dollar business, I know the skills and strategies Mike is teaching are invaluable."
"Wow, you took my breath away today. Your talk was extremely powerful! Exactly what I needed to hear today!"
"This is exactly what has been missing from our leadership style during this pandemic…this inspires me to work with my team to move through adversity."
"Best presentation by far. I could not take notes fast enough. The definitions of mindfulness, meditation and EQ are so helpful"
"I love the storytelling"
"Mike was very responsive during our communications, which is always a positive in my book, especially when trying to book and plan with a speaker. Mike also took the time to learn more about his audience before the keynote presentation. Not only did he speak with two of our members a few weeks prior to the event, he also attended sessions at the conference to tie some of the messaging into his talk."
"You have an impeccable ability to tell a story and get people emotionally invested in that story. I'm not trying to be a pro basketball player, for example, but the stories of individuals you have worked with, blockers and ways of removing those blockers to drive performance transcends industries."
"I had been trying to figure out what my purpose was for the last year and just couldn’t get there. I had a breakthrough in the first 15 minutes of our session and uncovered exactly what it was because of the series of stories and exercises you took us through. I can now tie this personal purpose to my purpose at work and our organization as a whole."
"A big thank you for delivering such a powerful and thoughtful session today! I also had my own breakthrough during one of your exercises and I am so happy that we got connected!"
"As a veteran producer and educator in the meetings and events space, I can say without hesitation that Mike is the easiest, most empathetic, and most conscientious speaker I’ve ever worked with. From our first pre-event call to our post-event debrief, it was clear Mike was invested in our meeting goals, customizing his message to help us best fulfill them, and then following up to ensure he had. On stage, he’s as authentic and accessible as he is off, personifying the heart-centered, mindful leadership approach he talks about so passionately. A talk, by the way, that at this particular time, is very relevant, and exactly what executives need to hear to lead contemporary (and future) workforces."
