"We LOVED him! So authentic and nurturing with our students. He spent so much time with them. Clearly he made an impact. My boss was saying we should plan to have him back. His Keynote was also genuine and optimistic, things we all needed to hear as we struggle onward, putting our best selves forward for the students we dearly love. I'm so glad we were able to have him on campus! You and the bureau were also fantastic to work with. Everything was so seamless!"
"The events with Michael went amazing. His presentation was one of my favorites in a long time. The performance aspects that he wove through it along with the way in which he spoke about his experiences and his stories was a real treat. I do not think I have seen anything like that before. And I was not the only one to think so."
"In an extremely engaging and memorable performative keynote address, he captivated the evening audience. His unique perspective on the film industry, as seen through the eyes of an Indigenous actor, was enlightening and educational. This performance was humourous, poignant and a joy to watch. Whether speaking to a small group or a large one, Michael is a highly effective public speaker. His professional yet real and personal talks positively impact all who hear him. Michael is a genuine person who can connect to each audience member and make them feel he is talking directly to them."
