Introducing Michael Jackson: A specialist speaker on business change
& professional conference facilitator
Originally a strategic director in the world of communication and marketing, as well as a TV and radio presenter, Michael has enjoyed decades of success both as a keynote speaker and an event facilitator around the world and has addressed over 3 000 events to date.
As a keynote speaker, he specialises in developing and sharing personalised stories about business change, making them appealing, relevant and meaningful to the people inside companies, organisations and associations.
Business storytelling is an essential part of what Michael does, in a way that makes his presentations memorable, emotional and impactful for every audience, and his audiences have ranged from factory workers to Heads of State.
Having recently been announced as Britain’s most Motivational Speaker in the UK Enterprise Awards, Michael prefer the phrase ‘Relevant Speaker’ as he strives to offer a fresh perspective at every event he’s involved in, by challenging conventional wisdom and providing actionable insights that drive meaningful change.
This has also led him into the field of event facilitation where he enjoys helping create, shape and deliver better conference experiences for all presenters and delegates, and helps to fuel, ignite and accelerate learning from each one.

Unlocking Transformational Change with Relatable & Engaging Content
Michael has earned a solid reputation as a highly respected keynote speaker about business trends and change, delivering engaging and impactful business-to-business presentations, yet is often asked whether he is a ‘motivational’ speaker.
He prefers to be called a ‘relevant’ speaker; as he endeavours to create unique, relatable and engaging content that engages the audience directly, although that in itself is a motivational result.
Using up-to-date insights and examples of current and future business trends, he helps people to fully understand how to adapt to the fundamental forces shaping change for themselves, in a surprising yet easy way to grasp, understand and implement.
Michael speaks about topics like Fresh Thinking for Future Fitness, where he outlines current business thinking and explain how the blending of people and technology is shaping new patterns and styles of success, or he unpacks a keynote entitled Business as Unusual, where he explains how in the world of complex and adaptive structures, people need to understand and adapt to an ever-changing set business demands, an unfolding marketplace, and differing consumer values.
He also keynotes on The Road Ahead – putting delegates firmly in the driving seat of their businesses and taking them on a cultural journey toward success to stimulate better performance. Looking towards 2030, through a presentation he calls The Challenge of Change Michael clearly outlines exactly how to compete in any marketplace from today onwards.
All these core presentation materials form the base for a personalised keynote speech built around the client and the event he presents at.
He looks to weave company-specific messages into his core materials to suit every audience and business, delivering a tailor-made presentation.
As a professional speaker with a track record of over 3,000 successful conference speeches, Michael always delivers personalised, future-focused content, for an immersive audience experience, and has earned a solid reputation for absolute professionalism.
But unlike many professional speakers, he doesn’t just deliver a keynote and then leave you to your event and offers a facilitation service in addition to his keynote speeches.
Michael always wants to fit in with your complete agenda and attend your entire conference, which helps him become fully involved in an event and allows him to fully understand and meet client needs.
Working closely with any internal presenters, for example, he is able to help them polish their skills and feel more confident on stage if presenting isn’t their natural thing. He also conducts live interviews on stage, runs properly engaging panel discussions and creates an all-round genuine and managed dialogue to help create better engagement with your audience throughout the event.
In the dynamic world of conferencing and corporate events, success lies in developing and delivering powerful communication, strategic planning, and innovative audience engagement. ‘The Other’ Michael Jackson provides a unique blend of these elements in his professional services as a globally recognized moderator, emcee, and event host.
Capitalizing on his extensive global conferencing expertise, Michael collaborates with clients to maximize their event investment, ensuring that every moment counts.
His unique approach begins even before the conference kicks off. Michael likes to assist in developing captivating pre-messaging materials and infographics aimed at stimulating audience interest, introducing the event theme, and promoting the event’s unique messages with precision and enthusiasm.
Understanding that each event is distinct, Michael recommends a tailored approach. He offers bespoke agenda development recommendations, helping clients devise the perfect structure to ensure attendees derive the most value from their time spent at the event.
On stage, Michael’s role extends beyond conventional moderating. He is a master storyteller, an advocate for your mission, and a crucial link between the speakers and the audience. Through nuanced facilitation and adept use of audience-interactive technologies, he enlivens real-time speaker and audience dialogues and facilitates effective and powerful communication of thought-leadership and content.
Michael’s commitment extends even beyond the conference’s conclusion. He believes in the lasting impact of each event and strives to extend its influence far beyond the conference itself. With creative offerings such as infographic reporting and social media-style speaker summaries, he helps to prolong the messaging life of the event.
Choosing Michael as your moderator means choosing success. Working in close partnership with the event, communication, HR, and marketing teams, as well as the audience, he creates an engaging and memorable event experience that yields a strategic, measurable return on investment.
Michael’s moderating motto? “Together, let’s craft events that educate, inspire, and captivate.”
His goal is always to uplift every aspect of your conference, making it an unforgettable experience for everyone involved, and all at a price that other professional speakers charge for a single keynote speech.
So, if you’re looking for someone who goes the extra mile, consider him for delivering more than expected and exceeding the usual.

There is no better MC or Featured Speaker than Michael Jackson. He immediately engages and captivates the audience and is an absolute pleasure to work with. Not only does Michael come prepared to speak with his well-thought-out content, but he also dives into the company he is speaking for. He learns and understands their business and the audience he is talking to. He reinforces corporate philosophies and works them into each presentation. You cannot go wrong with him. I look forward to the opportunity to work with Michael again.
