"Don't Wait!"


Tick Tock! Beat the clock! Don't get caught in the speaker scramble!


You know the situation: You've known for months, maybe even a year, you need to start your speaker search. You have a dream list of possibilities ... then the budget changes ... the leadership shuffles. You know the slippery slope, and I get it. 

From my experience in corporate event and organization leadership,

Leadership Speakers are Booking Fast!
Take a Look at One of Our Most Searched:
 Mike Abrashoff
Former Commander, USS Benfold 


When Mike Abrashoff took command of the USS Benfold, it was the worst-performing Navy ship in the Pacific Fleet. Within twelve months, with the same crew, Mike focused on the ship's culture and turned it around to become the #1 ship. 

Mike broke from the traditional leadership style and sought to see the ship from the eyes of his crew, creating a guiding set of principles he calls Grassroots Leadership. 

The result was an empowered culture and an engaged team who set new benchmarks for performance. 


Abrashoff's speeches challenge people to re-imagine their own leadership thinking and instill a renewed responsibility for results and success. Audiences relate to Abrashoff's dilemma: being held accountable for results in an environment where rules and regulations pose significant obstacles. His presentation equips people with the strategies, tactics and tools necessary to unleash breakthrough performance and extraordinary results in spite of the odds. 


Mike is the author of three books including, It's Your Ship,  Get Your Ship Together and It's Our Ship- combined having sold over 1 million copies.  Mike has spoken to over 1,000 groups since the release of It's Your Ship.
