NAVIGATING THE RAPIDS OF CHANGE: Ignite Passion, Ownership and Unprecedented Results

Imagine: Your team, once stagnant, now surfs the waves of change with passion, agility, and unmatched results. Disruption becomes opportunity as your people embrace transformation, fueled by a burning desire to excel. This is the power of leading change effectively.

Culture Shaping

Unlock the Hidden Power Within: Create Your Optimal Peak-Performing Culture

Imagine: Your team, humming with purpose, innovation soaring, and barriers evaporating. You achieve “lofty growth, distinction, innovation, collaboration and more” not through external efforts, but through the unleashed potential within your own people. This is the power of intentionally shaping your culture.

Tired of trudging uphill? Your current culture might be the invisible anchor holding you back. But what if you could transform it into an engine propelling you towards extraordinary results? Culture, simply put, is the convergence of the way your employees think and act. That culture is producing your organization’s every result (financial, operational, customer, employee, etc.). Creating shifts in the way employees think and act, launches you toward your desired results.  This keynote is your roadmap.  Discover:

  • The Hidden Wealth: Learn how to tap into the untapped creativity, passion, and commitment of your employees – a goldmine often left idle.

  • From Apathy to Action: Ignite a culture of engagement, accountability, and alignment. Watch silos crumble and collaboration take flight.
  • Beyond Compliance: Forget enforcing policies. Learn how to inspire voluntary commitment for faster, better results.
  • Laser Focus: Cut through confusion and achieve organizational clarity: everyone aligned, moving daily towards the same desired results.

More than just takeaways, you’ll gain:

  • Actionable strategies: No fluff, just practical steps to implement immediately.
  • Shifting Mindsets: Learn to identify and shift limiting beliefs that hold you back.
  • The “Aha!” Moment: Uncover the root cause of your cultural challenges and unlock powerful solutions.

      I first met Mike at an industry event in Florida. I was so moved by his presentation that afterwards I shook his hand and told him that he just changed my life forever. About a month later I invited him to make a similar presentation for our company during our annual Christmas luncheon. Mike presented to over 225 guests and that were engaged and motivated. The next day he made a full day presentation to 40 of our managers and sales team. Our team is still talking about the event and quoting lines from his book.

      Mike Evans participated as a keynote speaker in The IIA’s General Audit Management Conference. His leadership presentation really resonated with the audience of executives in internal audit. Mike is one of our highest rated speakers and as a result is being asked back to present at the All Star Conference which is the conference where we showcase encore presentations from the highest rated speakers. This is a great testament to his ability to provide an audience with practical strategies, tools and techniques for positive outcomes in their practice setting. I look forward to future opportunities to include Mike in The IIA’s conference programs.

      For our inaugural “Elevation 101” conference with the theme “Captivate on Change”, I was on the search for the best Keynote speaker to cover the topic of “Change Management”. During my search, I came across Mr. Mike Evans, we connected on Zoom, and since that moment, I knew that he would be the perfect main speaker for this event. But I have to say that Mike actually exceeded all of my expectations. He has a great stage presence and engages amazingly with the public. He is well-prepared and ready to share all his knowledge with the rest of the world. I cannot wait to collaborate with Mike again in other seminars. He has so much more to teach us. I hope to be working beside him in the near future.

      We knew we’d found something special from the first phone call we had with Mike. He asked simple yet thought provoking questions designed to help him really understand our organization and the challenges facing us. Mike spoke at our annual group conference and he nailed it. His energy started the day off right and his message showed he listened to what we said and incorporated the themes into his keynote. The feedback from the group has been extremely positive. We’ve had experiences with speakers in that past who have missed the mark, but Mike really demonstrated the value of having an external perspective from an industry expert. Consistently what we are hearing is Mike was the best part of the conference.

      I had a chance to attend Mike Evans’s presentation at the internal auditor’s association at Washington DC. To a certain extent, people tend to look for a way to keep status quo as it provides mind of safety. It is quite understandable but in the time of today’s fast, complex, dynamic changes, the mindset and energy are becoming ever important to accept changes and act on proactively. Mike, in his very short presentation, energized and motivated audience so that we in turn can bring back to influence our own organizations. I recommend Mike’s if especially looking for a short but effective turn-over in your employees mindset.
