"I should be reluctant to tell other utilities about you, what with the impending competitive world we are all about step into: but the employees of all utilities deserve to hear what you have to say, and laugh a bit while doing so!  You were absolutely great.  Thank you!"

"I have been responsible for hundreds of meetings, conferences, seminars, and conventions over the past 20 years and have likely hired more than a hundred speakers.  I can't think of another speaker that is like Michael McKinley.  I certainly work with speakers who deliver a quality presentation that are reasonable to work with.  However, I often expect more that that, and Michael McKinley always delivers more that what I expect."
