Michelle was relatable to our audience across the board, she provided easy actionable steps that attendees could implement immediately, and her energy was through the roof (even though we were virtual)!

Jennifer Smith, Director, International Interior Design Association

Michelle’s talk was authentic, extremely engaging, and resonated well with the team. It was the perfect combo of inspiring and motivational, while also having the right amount of humour. It got everyone thinking about how consistent, small changes can really impact your life. Following the talk, we’ve created a 100-day challenge Slack channel for those who want to continue the conversation. There have been some great discussions happening about what people would like to do more of this year which is helping to facilitate team bonding and facing fears together. Thanks, Michelle!

IT WAS AMAZINGGGGGGGGG!!!! The feedback we have received so far is overwhelming! Thank you!!! I want to share with you that last night at the gym, I did something I was so afraid to do before. For the first time, I did a handstand and saw things upside down. I felt so empowered after that, I allowed myself to grow more! Just wanted to share that with you. ?

Michelle Poler was an excellent keynote for our association’s virtual conference. Our attendees particularly appreciated her authenticity and energy! Some feedback from attendees of the 2021 NIRSA Virtual Annual Conference included: Absolutely incredible session. I really got a chance to think about the chances I want take next, but also be proud of the things that I have done to step out of my comfort zone in the past. Beautiful message! Very well done! Best virtual presentation I’ve been a part of! Fun, lively and engaging presentation. It was a great way to kick off the conference. I appreciate her authenticity. Thank you. I enjoyed this presentation because it challenged me to be brave and face my fears and not let them be what defines me and my comfort zone. By being brave and transparent I can inspire the people that work for me.

Kristen Gleason, Director of Professional Development, NIRSA

When our large women’s professional organization had to switch to a virtual platform for our 10 year anniversary event we were extremely nervous. Keeping energies high, keeping attendees engaged, and having your guests leave with a positive outlook like they would at an in-person event was at the top of our minds. We were recommended to Michelle Poler and instantly knew, after watching a few of her videos about transitioning to virtual, that she was the perfect fit for our audience. She brought so much enthusiasm and energy to our event, shared a message that was real and a woman at any age could identify with, and was so, so invested in the experience of our guests. Working with Michelle was a dream, especially during a time when there is so much uncertainty and unknown. People are nervous, and don’t know what life holds for them, but in that 1.5 hour program we saw nothing but smiles, happiness, inspiration and empowerment. Thank you Michelle for bringing us together and giving us all an experience we can hold onto forever.
