"Mike was a huge hit. I only wish we could have had him the last day of the meeting, instead of the first. Our executive said it was hard to follow an act like that."

"I've worked with a great many performers over the last 20 years of doing this; some with much greater marquee value, but the ease of integration into the meeting, the quality of performance and Mike's comfortable, easy style made this one of the best talent experiences I've ever had. Great work!"

"As we search out and secure speakers/entertainers for our dealer EXPO's, we are continually challenged with determining the right message for our diverse attendees. Finding that right person and message to challenge both the intellect and emotions can be difficult at best. Mike Rayburn did just that. His incredible talent, humorous delivery, stage presence and ability to connect with the group kept us all engaged and entertained. I cannot remember the last time one of our speakers concluded to a thunderous standing ovation like Mike did. I continue to receive "thank you" calls from our attendees on Mike's behalf."
