Speaking: Keynotes & Workshops

Click for Michel's Online AssistantThe greatest motivational speakers do more than just offer deep subject matter expertise — they also use their energy and passion to touch the audience’s heart, mind, and funny bone. That’s how we create a truly profound experience that moves people to take on new ways of thinking, feeling and acting. More than just higher sales or increased productivity, (as if that weren’t enough), people say my presentations give them the confidence, resilience and motivation that can only come from knowing their greatest strengths and unique value.

That’s why I not only present at sales, marketing and branding events, I also work with clients looking for greater employee motivation, engagement, teamwork and resilience.

Michel Neray, Founder of MoMondaysPurposeful Storytelling
How leaders lead, coaches coach, salespeople sell, teachers teach and influencers influence.

It is well-established that stories are more memorable and powerful than facts and statistics. Stories are the basis of leadership, coaching, influence, teaching, sales and team culture. From the beginning of time, stories are how we have passed on our values, made sense of the world and effected change. Today, it's how we influence our customers, our teams and audiences.

Conversational Networking, Marketing & Selling

This keynote or workshop helps participants develop customer-centric listening skills, and then teaches them how to develop intelligent questions that speak directly to customer interests and needs. This enables participants to 'ask' their way through a proposal or sale rather than 'push' their way to a decision. The interactive exercises also help participants learn about each other, making this ideal for networking events.

A template is provided that allows participants to write extremely rapid first drafts of introduction and sales emails/letters.

The Employee Engagement Workshop

One of the fundamental tenets of positive psychology is that people achieve genuine happiness when they leverage their signature strengths in pursuit of objectives that are larger than themselves. Not coincidentally, that is also one of the fundamental planks of developing an engaged workforce. When employees feel valued for the unique skills and strengths they bring to the table, they are naturally more committed, motivated, resilient and productive.
