    Past clients have referred to Mike as a “Safe Provocateur.” He challenges you while creating a safe space for each person to look in the mirror at their own beliefs and actions. Once a person is open to the truth of their strengths and challenges, they are more likely open to change and transformation. Mike integrates a balance of humor and hard-hitting discussion – all while reflecting respect throughout.
  • Inclusive
    Very few speakers and experts have had the level of success Mike has had with as great a diversity of audiences as Mike has worked with. From middle school students to college students to parents to all ranks of the military (from just finished boot camp to Admirals and Generals) to corporate leadership, Mike has profound impact with each group.Known for his inclusive approach to culture, race, age, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, and identity, Mike Domitrz gives you an expert who welcomes each person into the conversation on their terms.
  • Results that Matter
    While some speakers mistakenly focus solely on getting standing ovations, Mike Domitrz is dedicated to providing your audience a transformational experience drawing out each person’s “Why” and then teaching specific “How To” skill sets for implementing the lessons learned immediately throughout their lives. Best of all, Mike provides an evaluation system that reveals the actual behavioral and belief transformations within the audience.

Mike’s inclusive approach is appreciated by people of all demographics, identities, genders, and sexual orientations.
