"Teller of Tales? Yes, indeed. If you want to hire a truly inspirational event speaker, Mike Robertson has a personal style that is wholly unique. I have enjoyed his speeches on many occasions, and have been enthralled and touched every time. Mike flawlessly blends unusual facts and keen everyday observations to render insightful, inspiring stories that motivate and stimulate audiences. He has a marvelous sense of humor, and uses it to entertain and charm, but also to teach. I think what makes Mike so successful as a speaker is that he genuinely likes people. He loves to have you see other humans in a better light, learning from each story, and making you examine your own perspectives and opinions. Mike's words come from a warm, kind place you will enjoy visiting.”

“Mike Robertson is a master storyteller. He engages the audience from the moment he starts speaking and keeps you entertained throughout the entire speech. His genuine smile and attitude shine while he’s on stage. I would recommend Mike to anyone who wants to listen to a little humor, a little pondering, a little heart-string-pulling and ALWAYS a ‘moral to the story.’”

Past District 55 Governor
“Like all great storytellers, Mike delivers beautiful life insights and compelling truths wrapped in enjoyable stories from everyday life. Mike has an extraordinary ability to find wisdom embedded in the most common of life’s experiences. Like Garrison Keillor, Bill Cosby, or even Mark Twain, Mike’s narratives are always fun for people of all ages and uplifting to everyone.”
— Dr. Dave Haney
Senior Pastor, Riverbend Church
“He immediately draws you in and invites you to take his journey with him. The way Mike finds deep truths and amusing anecdotes in our everyday activities, life changing events or just modern entertainment—like television shows—make his presentations not only entertaining, but relevant. Mr. Robertson’s speech is more of a conversation with an old friend who is inviting you to share mutual experiences instead of talking at you and boring you with mundane PowerPoint slides. His gifted use of multi-media also allows the audience to view different situations as he makes his pointed comments.”
