Michael Marchev Profile
Knowledge-based, enthusiastic entertainment… that's the Marchev style of presenting useful, "how-to" information. Mike Marchev is one of a handful of speakers skilled enough to deliver thought-provoking messages that are quickly internalized, easily remembered, and realistically implemented. He effectively captivates audiences with a quick sense of humor and a non-linear, fast-paced approach to delivering timely "wake-up-calls" to professionals at all levels.
Mike is one of America's most refreshing and down-to-earth motivational speakers who owes his success to his ability to "connect" with his audiences. He has earned the respect of audiences by simply "telling it like it is" and by avoiding superfluous fluff and meaningless hype. He makes it his policy to candidly speak with people... not to them... or at them.
A sincere interest in other people's success is a trait that differentiates Mike Marchev from many other "speakers and trainers". One renowned Speakers Bureau called Mike authentic which is as good as it gets when it comes to professional endorsement.
A sought-after convention speaker, corporate facilitator and personal business coach, Mike has been asked to share his views and feelings with audiences in 21 countries on five continents. He has been called on to re-energize employees in a variety of industries, including: telecommunications, real estate, investment banking, healthcare, import/export, automotive, manufacturers, scientific research labs, and various governmental agencies.
All of Mike's programs are designed to rekindle your group's enthusiasm by highlighting untapped opportunities and by challenging individuals to focus on what is relevant, important, and meaningful.
A University of Massachusetts graduate with a Masters Degree in Marketing, Mike has taught business courses at the university level. As a former national sales manager of a large international organization and as a self-employed entrepreneur, he knows how to prepare professionals for the joys attached to victory and agonies associated with defeat.
