Mike is a member of the National Speakers Association and is one of less than 10% of the professional speakers in the world to have earned the prestigious Certified Speaking Professional (CSP) designation.
He has been featured on ABC News, the Oprah radio network, in Forbes, the Washington Post, and many others. He is a regular contributor to Oprah.com and the Huffington Post. Mike was also the host of his own radio show in 2009 and 2010, “Let’s Get Real,” on Energy Talk Radio.
Prior to his speaking, writing, and consulting career, Mike was drafted by the New York Yankees out of high school. He turned the Yankees down and instead chose to play baseball at Stanford University, where he pitched in the College World Series. Mike was drafted by the Kansas City Royals out of Stanford and played three seasons of professional baseball with the Royals organization before an arm injuries ended his playing career while still in the minor leagues.
After his athletic career was cut short by injuries, Mike worked in sales and business development for two Internet start-ups. When the dot-com “bubble” burst in 2000 and Mike was laid off, it allowed him to follow a deeper passion – empowering and inspiring people – and opened the door for Mike to start working full time as a speaker, author, and coach.
In addition to earning a degree from Stanford in American Studies with a specialization in race and ethnicity, Mike has continued to educate himself. He has extensively studied many disciplines of both personal and professional development, and received training from the Coaches Training Institute. Mike Robbins is also a contributing author to: "Chicken Soup for the Single Parent’s Soul," "Creating a Marriage You’ll Love," and "Thirty Things to Do When You Turn Thirty."
