Michael Guld Speaking Testimonials
- Director Member Services/Programming
Your opening keynote presentation, “Providing World Class Service at the Local Level” was an uplifting way to start off our conference. Your energetic style and enthusiasm was contagious. All attendees felt inspired to improve their customer service skills. By ending our day with your next session, “Passion… The Difference Between Being Good and Being Great”, you reminded them all of why they do what they do. It was a nice pat on the back for all our caregivers, when sometimes external factors can interfere with their internal passion for what they do and why they do it. Thanks for keeping everyone motivated!

Michael Guld’s keynote address, “When the Going Gets Tough, the Tough Get Going,” set the perfect tone for our entire convention.

Michael Guld was the keynote speaker at the Retail Merchants Association First Friday Forum breakfast meeting. This program titled “Providing World-Class Service At The Local Level” really delivered. The audience left with specifics on how to exceed clients’ expectations and elevate themselves into the world-class category. His presentation was so jam-packed with red hot ideas that I thought the bulb on the projector was going to explode from displaying so many powerful concepts in such a short period of time. If you’ve never heard Michael speak, then you are truly missing out on one of the most engaging and enlightening presentations. I have since received many thanks from those in attendance.
Retail Merchants Association
Attendees from our core management group enjoyed the way you brought out real world circumstances, poked fun at yourself and then had each of them think about how they could drive a better ship. In good times and bad, every angle should be considered to better our business. We have had quite a few speakers at Saxon Shoes over the years and our staff felt like you were the one to go forward with as we prepare to expand to Fredericksburg in a few months.
I’ve had the most incredible conversations and e-mails about your presentations! Congratulations and thank you at the same time! I sent a note to my National State Broadcast Association counterparts about the great feedback. Would you be interested in a repeat performance?

Michael, thanks for the great job at GRADA seminar this week. The message was a great one for our dealers to hear. Everyone just wished they had sent more people!
Michael spoke to my organization on leadership and inspired the entire room. What is so special about Michael is that you might already know most of the qualities of a leader, yet he somehow calls you to action. He solidifies that those leadership qualities are necessary in your life. Michael is extraordinarily captivating and his passion enforces his message. I’m a stronger person because of our interaction, and my team is more productive. Quite simply, I’d go again and again.
