Speaker's bio:
Michael started Bayly Presentations in early 2001, after serving the Mobile Radio Industry for 40 years. 12 years in engineering and 28 years in systems sales & marketing, reaching international salesman of the year before going on to lead the most profitable division. Was responsible for the design and sale of many complex wireless systems. Brought a new wireless technology to the U.S.A. from the U.K and set up the organization to market and sell. Required detailed negotiations and presentations with Federal departments (Federal Communications Commission), Industry Standards organizations in Washington D.C., User Groups and Manufacturers. Largest single sale was $15MM.

During his time in Sales and Marketing, Mike was responsible for the design and delivery of hundreds of presentations and he developed some unique methods for dynamic presentations and for turning complex technical issues into easily understood presentations. Always being highly complemented on his Presentation Skills he was often told he ought to teach others how to prepare and deliver presentations. That opportunity arose during early 2001 and Bayly Presentations LLC was born.

With a passion for helping people to be better presenters, Mike is one of the few people in this industry that consistently has 99% +, “met or exceeded expectations” ratings for his workshops. He has researched in depth the skills needed to communicate effectively and blended with his own real-world experiences has developed effective programs to enable people to gain these skills in the shortest possible time.

After 10 years of concentrating on Presentation Skills training he came to the conclusion that a broader “Live Communication Skills” was what the market was needing. This is now his main focus.

Mike is a European Chartered Engineer (US Professional Engineer equivalent) and Member of the Institution of Engineering & Technology. He gained his degree in Electrical and Radio Engineering at the Cambridge College of Technology in Cambridge, England and on coming to the US also had Sales & Marketing equivalent Bachelor degrees confirmed. He also was responsible for both Sales and Technical training for 5 of his corporate years.
