"Michael gave a keynote speech during an Uber regional leadership team event.

He was talking to a group of high performers that started to feel weight of too many stressful days and nights in the office and constant uncertainty.

He gave a number of personal stories, often spiced up with humour when touching each topic.

Michael managed, only within One hour, to relax, energize and pump up the team to go head on into new challenges."
