  • Angela Shiring: Sr. EHS Coordinator at ZF Transmissions, Gray Court, SC
  • Michael was wonderful to work with! He mentored me through Six Sigma training, and was instrumental in helping develop my skills in problem solving. His broad experiences give him a unique insight to the intricacies and complex relationships that can exist within a production system. He has a tremendous ability to look for solutions within quantitative and qualitative data. Many of the problems I encounter are based on a behavior or mechanism not directly related to the products. Michael was able to help myself and another colleague examine the data using various problem solving methods to look for all possible solutions. As a result of his mentoring and problem solving skills, the projects were successful in avoiding costs, and reducing potential injuries within the facility.

Your insight on The Evolution of Innovation was rich in practical wisdom that our members could use while developing their business growth scenarios and strategic planning.
    The comments I received from participants clearly demonstrated that your genuine presentation style allowed your keynote concerning change and break-through innovation to be delivered without any barriers. Others simply enjoyed the relevant humor and personal stories related to the theme which added to the effectiveness of your message.
