Platform: Get Noticed in a Noisy World

Platform: In today’s hyper-noisy world, it is hard to get anyone’s attention. You need a platform to be seen and heard. Thankfully, it’s never been easier. In this presentation, I share how to use social media to build your brand, decrease your marketing costs, and increase your impact. 

Life Plan: Designing the Life You’ve Always Wanted

Life Plan: Few people have a plan for their life. Most are passive spectators, watching their life unfold, one day at a time. In this presentation, I explain how to go from reactive to proactive and develop a plan for accomplishing those priorities that matter most. 

Shift: Leading in Turbulnent Times

Shift: We live in a day of unprecedented change. Sometimes it seems nothing is nailed down. In this presentation, I share how effective leaders must shift themselves and their organizations in order to survive. For those who do, the opportunities and rewards are great. 

How to Shave 10 Hours off Your Work Week

More Margin: Almost everyone I know complains about how much they are working. In this presentation, I explain how to maximize your productivity, make room for those activities that matter most, and reclaim your life. It is easier than you think! 

Authentic Leadership: The Five Characteristics of Effective Leaders

Authentic Leadership: Too often, leadership gets reduced to mere influence. While this is important, real leadership—leadership that creates personal and organizational leverage—is much more. In this presentation, I share the five characteristics of effective leaders. 

The Leader’s Heart: Unleashing the Most Important Leadership Tool You Have

The Leader’s Heart: Many leaders think the key to effectiveness is experience. Others believe it is their education or training. Still others rely on their charisma. While these are valuable, they are not the most important. The most significant leadership tool you have is your heart. 

New York Times Bestselling Author and International Speaker

“Believe me, I have heard many CEOs address an audience. I have only seen one, however, with the unique ability to combine humor and content, then deliver it with credibility and a humble attitude. Michael Hyatt is the very best.”

New York Times Bestselling Author Founder, Innovate Conference

“We set the bar high for our first Innovate Conference. The artists, musicians, authors, and speakers came with the anticipation they would see their creative talents explode into meaningful reality. Michael Hyatt’s presentation was the highlight of the event. He challenged, encouraged, and showed the way—with passion, humor, and a real action plan. His call to personal excellence will be the catalyst for lives that make the world a more exciting and meaningful place.”

Texas Mortgage Bankers Association

“Our industry has been so heavily focused on compliance and regulation that talking about growth has become almost a back-burner subject. Michael brought us concepts that were easy to understand and to put into action immediately in our lives and our businesses. Our members left our recent conference inspired and possessing tools that will make them better business people, but more importantly better people. We could not have been more satisfied with what Michael provided us, and our event was better by having him there.”

Ted Dekker New York Times Bestselling Author

"The kind of speaker audiences hope for but rarely get."
