Russian Bank Executive
"Michael Bergdahl delivered an inspirational keynote speech lasting more than two hours. He addressed 1500 managers and executives of our state-owned Russian bank about the importance of standardizing bank operations, across all of our 20,000 branches. Michael spoke as naturally as though he were talking to a relatively small group of likeminded allies and he did it with exceptional ease and grace. His thorough preparation showed throughout the talk, as he drew parallels between operations of the world's largest retailer and Russia's largest bank. Michael is a great storyteller, and the Russian audience kept reciting his Sam Walton stories days after the talk."
