Select Testimonials

We contracted Michelle to open on both days of our conference in 2017 and she did not disappoint. She executed both presentations with ease, captivating and engaging the audience in her conversation-like style, using story telling, questioning, and activities to relate her points. She is collaborative, lively, humorous, and creative. She demonstrated a professional manner in all of our interactions, and as a conference organizer, I appreciated that she was prompt in her responses, was well organized, and punctual the day of our event. During our customization meeting, she came prepared with a list of questions about our industry, and ideas for how to ensure her message related the experience of our industry workplaces. I would highly recommend her as a presenter to anyone looking to deliver practical strategies for professional growth." - Safety and Injury Management Advisor, BC Construction Safety Alliance "Bridging The Gap".

Michelle Ray was an absolute terrific hit at our Annual Trans Canada Advertising Agency convention. The convention was titled "Bend Don't Break" and Michelle was our opening keynote speaker. She demonstrated outstanding insight to her target audience but also was able to get them totally engaged with her communication style. She was well versed on the message she was asked to speak on and inspired the attendees with new approaches and new thought leadership examples & applications for their businesses. Over the years I personally have listened to many motivational speakers, but I would place Michelle at the top of the heap. It was especially great that she took the time to understand our industries cultures and our issues.
