2x TED speaker, World's Funniest Guitar Virtuoso
Mike Rayburn Bio
Mike Rayburn's personal, business and career mission is simple: Transform communities. Whether that community is a business audience, an association, enrollees in his "What If ?" keynote experience, impoverished people world wide, or the lost in his hometown of Las Vegas, Mike's daily efforts and life work are dedicated to transforming communities.
Mike does this most often with his "What If ?" keynote presentations and breakouts, where he uses world-class guitar and hilarious comedy to teach the three simple, powerful tools which took him from playing empty bars, to headlining Carnegie Hall (eight times!). They work for anyone. And everyone. Always.
When organizations need innovation and peak performance, where do they go? Usually it's to business leaders, authors, or famous sports figures. Rarely do they go to artists! Yet for artists, creativity, innovation and peak performance are their life blood! Being a mega-successful artist, as well as a savvy entrepreneur and business owner, Mike Rayburn is uniquely qualified to teach artistic principles in a business context, to give businesses and organizations the edge they so desperately need to innovate and perform at peak "virtuoso" levels and thus transform their success and significance.
The measure of any speaker is the results they produce. Mike is consistently cited as "the hit of the conference," and "what we needed and didn't even know it." More importantly, businesses regularly attribute significant, sometimes exponential increases in sales, impact and morale to the application of Mike's keynote tools and breakout session content.
