From Michael Gregory:

An Invitation to You
Dear Colleague,
I would like your state chapter to invite me to make a proposal
for a presentation to your state CPA society as a keynote and/or
technical speaker to a general session, your business valuation
section and/or other technical section CPE.
As a member of the National Speakers Association I have been
a keynote and technical speaker more than 40 times annually to
state CPA societies, bar associations and others and I host about
a dozen of webinars on the internet annually.
For those interested in numbers I have earned regarding
knowledge and presentation, the following are ratings from
various presentations:
My two-day CPE with the Nebraska Society of CPAs was rated

4.8 on a 5.0 scale;

My all-day CPE with the Rhode Island Society of CPAs was

rated a 4.6 on a 5.0 scale; and

My two-hour presentation to the Tennessee Society of CPAs

was rated a 4.9 on a 5.0 scale.

See my Speaker Kit for commentary from participants. Check

out my web page blog, books, videos and
events and free materials.
I encourage you to print out various pages and/or circulate the
entire brochure to your colleagues. Please contact me via email
at or by telephone at 651-633-5311. I look
forward to hearing from you.
