utilities deserve to hear what you have to say, and laugh a bit while doing so! You
were absolutely great. Thank you!"

|"I have been responsible for hundreds of meetings, conferences,
seminars, and conventions over the past 20 years and have likely hired more than a hundred
speakers. I can't think of another speaker that is like Michael McKinley. I
certainly work with speakers who deliver a quality presentation that are reasonable to
work with. However, I often expect more that that, and Michael McKinley always
delivers more that what I expect."
