Steal the Show

with Michael Port

With all the uncertainty dominating our lives, Choose to Think BIG! When you dare to Think BIG, our April Speaker is the one you want to hear from!

Michael Port has written eight books, including Book Yourself Solid and Steal the Show, the latter of which—according to the former president of Starbucks—“might be the most unique and practical book ever written on the topic of public speaking.”

He was once a professional actor guest starring on shows like Sex & the City and Law & Order and in films like The Pelican Brief and Down to Earth. These days, Michael can be seen on MSNBC, CNBC, and PBS as an on-air expert in communication and business development and as the host of the most popular podcast on public speaking and performance, "Steal the Show" with Michael Port.

Join us online to learn:

  • What actors know about how to give better performances during keynotes, breakouts, and even workshops—in person or virtual
  • How to book yourself solid in every economy

Michael Port is the author of eight bestselling books, which have been translated into 29 languages, including Book Yourself Solid and Steal the Show. A few of his books have become perennial bestsellers and made it onto lists such as The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, and USA Today. (Not too bad for someone who was told by his fourth-grade teacher that he had the worst spelling she’d seen in 25 years of teaching.)

Michael combined his acting, training, and business background to build Heroic Public Speaking Worldwide. Together with his wife and co-founder, Amy Port, at their 10,000 square-foot headquarters in New Jersey, they offer the most complete and effective speaker training in the world. Their clients include CEOs and founders, Admirals, Navy Seals, FBI agents, Olympians, politicians (but only the nice ones), bestselling authors, small business owners, and people leading movements and advancing important causes.

Michael, Amy and their team are committed to changing the world, one speech at a time.
