Michael Davis

Michael Davis passion for storytelling and public speaking was not obvious early in his life. As a child, he was shy and reserved – not an indication he’d grow up to be a professional speaker and public speaking coach.

As a new financial planner, his seminars were poorly delivered. He was given an ultimatum – “Become a better presenter…. or ELSE!!” Because of that threat, he joined Toastmasters International in 1994. There he quickly discovered a passion for the art of public speaking. He learned that crafting and delivering impactful presentations is a learnable, repeatable skill. He also realized that he had a gift to help others improve these skills. That inspired him to start the company Speaking CPR.

His business is focused on working with professionals to improve their confidence, communication, leadership and selling through improved speaking, presentation and business storytelling skills. Michael has worked with both individuals and company teams to master these abilities and increase their bottom lines. Past clients include:

General Electric – Johnson & Johnson – The Ohio Association of Community Health Centers – The Greater Cincinnati Human Resource Association – Kroger

He also works closely with speakers in the Ted X Cincinnati event, and has successfully coached competitors in the World Championship of Public Speaking.

He is a contributing author to three public speaking books, and is the author of ‘THE Book on Storytelling’ and the Kindle book series ‘Sell More With Stories.’ He has been featured on podcasts like: ‘The Business of Story,’ ‘Speaker Match Radio,’ and ‘Speaking of Wealth.’

Michael is a candidate member of the National Speakers Association (Kentucky Chapter) and a member of Toastmasters International. He lives in Blue Ash, Ohio with his family, and the ruler of their household, Sky the Chihuahua.
