In the course of my business, I end up hearing 20 – 30 presentations by public speakers a year. At this point I have heard hundreds of public speakers present on a wide range of topics: educational, informative, persuasive, inspirational, and more. It is from this position that I draw the authority to state that Mike Skinner is one of the best public speakers I have ever encountered. He is engaging, well spoken, and intuitive.
