I have been blessed to speak at many great conferences. In breakout sessions and as a keynote speaker I have been able to speak at some of the top education conferences in the nation.

Here is just a sample of some of the conferences where I have presented or provided a keynote address:


National Title I Conference

National Head Start Association Annual Conference

NHSA Annual Parent Conference (English and Spanish)

National PTA Convention

National Zero to Three Conference

National Family and Community Engagement Conference

Texas Association of School Boards Summer Leadership Institute

Texas Association of School Administrators Annual Conference

Texas Parent Involvement Conference

Region II Head Start Annual Conference-St. Thomas


I have been a public speaker for forty years (yes, I started young). I have worked to keep my training as personal and down to earth however, I know that keynotes need to be succinct, specific, and focused. I have employed speaking coaches, I have studied some of the best speakers in the country, and continue to hone my craft to deliver the best presentations built for your audience. I was even able to provide a TEDx talk for my alma mater recently.

Keynote Sessions

Mike told me if I followed his plan that we could get the dads to our event. I followed his plan and we got even more than he said we would.

The teachers told me, “Dads don’t come to our school...until they heard Mike once. Now they come any time I call them.”
