About Michael Davis

Michael Davis’s work is focused on helping you attract more clients, create more efficient teams, and increase your influence through more effective speaking, business storytelling and online presentations. He helps experienced speakers, business leaders, entrepreneurs, and sales professionals confidently deliver memorable and meaningful talks of any length, even on short notice.

His passion for effective presenting was born on a desk when he was in first grade. He was being punished for breaking a class rule. The embarrassment of being ridiculed by his classmates kept him from standing in front of any group for the next 25 years, unless he was forced to.

This didn’t change until the day his boss told him, “Either get better at giving presentations or we’ve got to let you go!” Those words motivated Michael to deal with his fear of public speaking.

With the help of mentors and coaches he met through Toastmasters and the National Speakers Association, he discovered the skills and tools to manage his fear, become an effective speaker and uncovered his talent for training others to become world class presenters and business storytellers. And he continues to learn more about the craft every day.

Michael is a highly-sought presentation skills consultant and trainer, and speaker. He’s the author of ‘THE Book on Storytelling’ and the upcoming book, ‘Stop Telling Just ANY Story.’

He has trained business leaders, salespeople, and professional and TEDx speakers on four continents to deliver talks that have been viewed over 3 million times. He 's the Founder of Speaking CPR and is a faculty member and coach at Stage Time University.

He lives in Blue Ash, Ohio with his family, and the overlords of their house, Sky the Super Chihuahua and her underling, Riley the Mini-Chihuahua.
