Service in action:
The National Conference of Mayors (NCM) was looking for new ways to engage the nation’s mayors to invest in teenagers’ struggling with poverty so that greater impact could result. Michael delivered a customized, personal message to the NCM which focused on action vs. rhetoric. It called on the mayors to be leaders through action by examining what peak performance is and how it can change perspective and lives. Michael’s talk resulted in a standing ovation from the NCM participants attending and providing the springboard for attendees to return to their communities with new ideas and energy to bring about change.
