A keynote speaker plays a key role at your leadership convention or conference. The speaker emphasizes your theme and offers a value-added message. Most importantly, he or she helps attendees be better leaders for their organizations.


Remember, the team usually improves right after the leader does. 

Michael Angelo Caruso delivers a fantastic keynote on leadership that is both educational and entertaining.

This session covers what your leadership group needs to know about the best ways to educate, motivate, and reward team members.


He’ll talk about ways to handle the four most challenging work personalities, giving special attention to handling negative people.  You’ll learn a simple, yet effective technique for confidence that few leaders use and the best way to offer criticism.


Unfortunately, most managers try to motivate employees using three tools that usually don’t motivate: job descriptions, performance reviews and evaluation forms that are linked to money. It turns out that money doesn’t motivate most employees anyway.


Here’s how Michael uses the power of story to motivate leaders who attend his keynote presentations:
