For a couple of decades, I have had the utmost respect for Leslie Michelson and the incredible work that he does. I have heard him speak in several different forums, and he is as comfortable and commanding in small groups as he is working a room of thousands. Leslie really knows how to connect data, personal interest stories, and practical advice with ease. After every speaking occasion, I am in awe all over again. I love to listen to the comments of participants on their way out… everyone talks about what a powerful and dynamic speaker he is! It will definitely be a life changing experience for those who attend, and loved ones they will help.
