"Over the years Mike McKinley has made me look like a hero on more than one occasion. The DaimlerChrysler Financial Services meetings where Mike has been the 'keynote' speaker have been rated the highest by our attendees. Proof of how good he is? I have had Mike speak on at least 5 occasions and can't wait to book him again." - DaimlerChrysler Financial Services
"We were able to laugh while we learned, which we all needed!" - Gehl Company
"Your program was both engaging and entertaining. We also really appreciate the time that you took prior to the event to learn about Krump Construction, our history, and our goals for the future. Your ability to weave in pertinent elements about who we are made your presentation even more 'personal' and relevant. But, what was the most impressive was your ability to tailor our program to such a diverse employee population. That is commendable. We arrived as individuals representing different 'business units', and left united as 'one' group of fellow employees." - Krump Construction Inc.
