Keynote Speaking

My keynote presentations focus on connection, compassion, and results. Whether I’m presenting to a team of executives or to a team of new leaders, I take them on a journey to become more effective leaders.

During my keynote speaking presentation, I’ll take you through my three-step process.

  • Step 1: Connecting with Yourself
  • Step 2: Connecting with Others
  • Step 3: Connecting with your Organization

Interested in having Michelle speak?

  • Michelle was one of our very favorite keynote speakers. Her enthusiasm was infectious and her message resonated so well with our audience.

  • Michelle Johnston was one of our most engaging speakers at FestiGals 2017! While her presentation, “Communicating Better, Smarter, Faster,” was at the end of the day, she presented to a packed room and was able to captivate and energize our attendees. In our seminar surveys, 93% of the women in her audience scored Dr. Johnston a 5/5 on engagement, enthusiasm, relevance and the likelihood to adopt her information to their personal life.
