Executive communication coaching designed to improve every aspect of speaking, leading from the front, and presenting.

NOTE| This is a highly customized program.

Signing up for SPEAK TO LEAD is about developing your Presence, Presentations, and Platform. Set up a call with Mike to discuss what this would look like for you:



This executive-level program includes the course material from SPEAK TO OVERCOME and SPEAK TO ADVANCE, along with specific videos for preparing for keynotes, embedding values in all spoken communication, and leading from the front. Additionally, each participant is included in the monthly small group community along with the mastermind group.


Six months of Executive communication coaching starts with an onsite workshop (inside the continental USA) with Mike Acker. You are welcome to come to Mike or bring Mike to the nearest Metropolitan area.

For 4-5 hours Mike will coach, give direction, and work with you to improve speeches, meetings, and create content.

After the initial session, there are two monthly coaching calls with Mike Acker.

By the end of the program you will see the effect on your audiences and you will have crafted two to four signature talks to present at conferences, company events, or media interviews.

(Additionally, your admin will have access to a coaching session designed at booking you for desired events.)

Take your leadership to the next level to impact your organization and beyond.
