During these challenging times, we continue our climb to success and reward with our teams. In our business and personal lives, we can sometimes feel like we reached our limit. How do we take that next step? No one knows better than Mitch the power of the next step and how to overcome obstacles we can’t control, and how to celebrate the successes as we move forward.

In our business and personal lives, we sometimes feel as if we’ve reached our limit. The obstacles pile up, and the challenge seems too big. As Mitch shows us, all it takes is the courage to take one more step and carry on. His is an inspiring story with spectacular results.
In his presentation (to the NetApp Sales All Hands Meeting), Mitch shows us how to challenge ourselves to climb to ever-increasing heights while experiencing the thrills and rewards of success on a much deeper level.

During our time together, Mitch presented his “Everest” inspirational and motivational story to my extended management team. Despite his world-renowned achievements, he presented his journey to us with great humility. Being one of us in the industry, we could relate to where he was & were inspired by his accomplishments & took to heart his practical principles and steps for us to climb our own big mountains. I appreciated that he took the time to listen to our personal stories, offering lots of time for questions and posing thought-starters for bigger summits for us to consider. Simply, I’d recommend Mitch to any organization or group that is looking to transform themselves during these challenging times.

I introduced Mitch to the SC Johnson Community and was lucky enough to see Mitch present to an audience of over 250 people. Mitch was engaging yet humble. He captivated the audience and stayed to sign books and answer questions. People continue to ask me when he’s coming back?!

I’m always looking for senior industry A+ leaders for my conferences & I hired Mitch to speak about the challenges we all face and how to achieve greatness in our lives. His story of ‘ordinary people achieving extraordinary things’ resonated with our senior executives who are always looking for new ways of thinking, scaling their business and motivate their teams.

On a large 360’ stage, Mitch brought energy, enthusiasm and empathy. Being one of us – a quota-carry leader – he connected with the audience on every level with his breathtaking and inspiring adventures. I’ve run tons of big events and folks told me after that Mitch was one of the most memorable speakers and that his principles carry on in their lives.

I first met Mitch over ten years ago and, in that time, I have had the opportunity to work closely with him as both my manager & mentor. When I was first hired as the Head of Global Marketing reporting to Mitch, I relied heavily on his exceptional leadership, marketing savvy, direct guidance and support to become a strong leader in my role.

“Mitch and I met at Dilithium Networks, a 100-person late-stage VC-backed early leader in the mobile industry. Mitch, as the head of marketing, product management and development confidently took the reins in the ambiguous startup environment, communicating honestly and directly with customers with a polished focus on bringing them the strongest ROI through solid business cases and value propositions.

What can I say about Mitch? Though we’ve known each other for about seven years, it feels like lifetimes & the professional & personal impact he has had on my business & personal life is outstanding. We initially met while I was growing my VAR in Australia, I had worked with dozens & dozens of Vendors, but very few were true Partners.

I’ve had the privilege & pleasure of knowing Mitch for over 20 years. We worked together in Stockholm for Ericsson’s new and global operators, and some years later, he recruited me to join his team in Jakarta. What I’ve appreciated most over the years is that regardless of where we’re living and working, Mitch takes the time to support me in my career and life growth.
