About My Business:
What makes you different as a person is what makes you better... in your business, your career and your life.
Michel Neray combines a science degree of University of Waterloo, an MBA from McGill University, and a career as a creative marketing copywriter, advertising agency director and marketing executive. A visionary and entrepreneurial game-changer, in 1995 he founded Portfolios.com, the world's first Internet search engine for advertising and creative professionals.
As a consultant and facilitator, Michel helps his clients discover, communicate and focus on their greatest value and true competitive advantage. It’s what he calls their 'Essential Message'. This results in massive increases in sales and a powerfully differentiated market position.
As a motivational speaker, Michel empowers his audiences to dig deeper than the usual marketing messages to access a well of meaning and purpose that drive sales as much as they drive productivity, engagement, resilience and cooperation/collaboration. If you believe feedback forms, people love his humor, stories and energy. Since 2008, Michel has held a variety of leadership positions in the Canadian Association of Professional Speakers, and has spoken professionally in more than seven countries around the world.
Michel co-authored The Great Crossover, which made it to Jack Canfield’s Achiever’s Recommended Reading List. In 2005, his chapter, "Everything Starts With A Conversation" was selected as the lead for the book, Sales Gurus Speak Out. He’s married with three children, two dogs, three snowboards, a whitewater canoe and a black belt in Karate.
