"The feedback from the attendees was unanimous: 'This was the best Opening Session I have ever been to!' We wholeheartedly recommend you to any meeting planner looking for fun, laughter, and a great message from a unique speaker."
"Mike is a great start to any meeting! He made me look very good and I appreciate that! I cannot recommend him enough... FANTASTIC!"
"I've worked with a great many performers over the last 20 years of doing this; some with much greater marquee value, but the ease of integration into the meeting, the quality of performance and Mike's comfortable, easy style made this one of the best talent experiences I've ever had. Great work!"
As we search out and secure speakers/entertainers for our dealer EXPO's, we are continually challenged with determining the right message for our diverse attendees. Finding that right person and message to challenge both the intellect and emotions can be difficult at best. Mike Rayburn did just that. His incredible talent, humorous delivery, stage presence and ability to connect with the group kept us all engaged and entertained. I cannot remember the last time one of our speakers concluded to a thunderous standing ovation like Mike did. I continue to receive "thank you" calls from our attendees on Mike's behalf.
"Mike was quoted several times throughout the meeting. What a compliment! Thanks for starting the meeting off with so much positive energy and passion."
Mike was the best entertainer I have ever booked! This is the first time I have ever had unanimous approval from all 280 plus attendees. Mike is truly an entertainer for everyone. I am happy to endorse this A+ entertainer!
The musical inclusion as an alpha and omega focus on the value of children's innocence and desire to become all that they can be and the educator's purpose for encouraging and inspiring America's future was effective and heartfelt. I became re-inspired to do a better job!
MIKE WAS UNBELIEVABLY AWESOME!!! He's so inspiring! He blew my socks off!
Mike was a huge hit. I only wish we could have had him the last day of the meeting, instead of the first. Our executive said it was hard to follow an act like that.
Mike Rayburn was awesome; he was the perfect opening performer. It should not surprise you to know that he was our highest rated speaker this year. Behind the stage, he was equally impressive. He arrived early, was easy to work with and was self-sufficient. I would recommend him to anyone who is looking for a sure fire way to entertain an audience and look like a good meeting planner.
Mike literally AMAZED everyone with his talent, and then he AWED everyone with the message. We have been providing our employees with this type of retreat for 25 years, and beyond a shadow of a doubt, Mike Rayburn provided us with the most universally appealing and entertaining program we have ever had. Further, we would recommend Mike for any company's retreat, motivational seminar, or leadership program where an inspirational speaker/presenter is needed. Mike is the best!
