Your MC for January is ... Mike Schoettler

Our MC for the January event is Mike Schoettler. Mike is an entertaining pragmatist who blends humour and pathos with his own personal experience. Combining a background of sales and management success, Mike’s creditability extends to both sales and non-sales staff alike.

Educated in the United States of America, Mike’s perspective makes him a unique speaker/trainer with the ability to move an audience to action. Mike has a B.A. in Political Science (California State University at Los Angeles) and a Master of International Management (American Graduate School of International Management).

Mike has demonstrated his “Sales Sense” approach to producing results working in major corporations in both the USA and Australia. After five years as National Sales Manager for Hunter Douglas, he started speaking professionally in 1991. In the years since, Mike has worked with Associations, Corporations and Franchise Organisations of all sizes around the world. In 1995, Mike was elected President of the National Speakers Association of Australia in NSW.
