Our clients for media training / crisis communications and presentation skills training represent a cross section of business and industry, military and government agencies, arts and entertainment. We’ve worked with CEOs and mid-level managers from a variety of business enterprises, military and government leaders including general staff and adjutants general, elected officials to include governors and state senators, authors embarking on promotional book tours and even Hollywood celebrities. Many of our clients, as would be expected, have some issues that are, to say the least, pretty sensitive – some classified. (Two of our trainers hold high-level government security clearances.) As such, we adhere to the strictest strict policy of absolute client confidentiality and will not under any circumstances divulge or discuss in any manner any elements of our clients’ program issues – ever! A small sampling of clients that we can divulge is listed below along with a couple of client testimonials.
Best of the Best! Over the years Michael Drake has helped my department’s staff, and me, become ever more effective in our communications and enabled us to make a positive impression when telling the public about what we do for them. Further, he taught our team how to present very technical subjects in understandable and meaningful ways to diverse audiences. I don’t give glowing recommendations easily, yet Michael Drake has earned a 10/10 in my book and I highly recommended him and his training courses.
Bob Kard – Air Pollution Control Officer, County of San Diego

Richard Crompton – Director of Public Works
Michael is an industry expert in media training and presentation skills, and his open dialogue kept staff engaged and interested. He applied real life skills and set scenarios that taught staff to think under pressure and remain poised enough to provide an effective presentation. His natural ability to provide constructive criticism and practical knowledge to the training made it an experience that staff found enjoyable and worthwhile for personal and professional growth.
