First of all, in my 27 years in education, Michael was undoubtedly the best keynote presenter I have ever heard. In fact, 100% of the 503 respondents to our survey indicated that they agreed/strongly agreed that he was engaging, motivational, and inspirational. He was referenced, by name, in several of the comments throughout the survey and I continue to hear "buzz" in our local districts and beyond about his message. That is compelling data and he has set the bar very high for us! I think that the fact that he is still a classroom teacher, combined with his presentation skills and down to earth personality, gives him credibility and relevancy that is increasingly difficult to find.
