Michael Kelly


Michael Kelly is a highly experienced personal communication speaker and trainer. Michael has been coaching and training leaders for more that 20 years. He loves helping leaders ‘own’ any type of interaction, encounter, meeting and presentation through how they listen, speak, present, handle, carry and conduct themselves.

Michael believes the best leaders, lead by example. He believes the best leaders, are highly self-aware of themselves and how they are perceived by others.

Michael holds a Master of Science degree in Speech Pathology from the University of Redlands in Redlands, California and a Bachelor of Arts degree in English from Worcester Stage College in Worcester, Massachusetts.

With former Premier of New South Wales, Bob Carr, Michael has produced the popular audio programme, Choice Voice - Lessons from great speaking voices. He has also produced a novel, video learning programme entitled, Confident Personal Communication.

Michael’s top-level, life-organising goal is to use ever-improving, field-tested ideas and techniques to help people maximise their communication potential.
