Michael Penney is an extraordinarily gifted speaker, interviewer, and, dare I say, captivating thought leader / entertainer to the audiences that have the privilege of bearing witness to his gifts on display. I highly recommend him for media and live audience engagements where he can effortlessly tell stories that engage and inspire.
I have the privilege to work with Michael on a weekly basis. Michael is a diligent professional with a passion to add value to others lives. He is driven, honest, trustworthy and has exceptional organizational keenness to work with and lead others. He is a great asset to any organization that is lucky enough to have him. ~Adam B.
I had the honor, and more importantly the privilege, to lead Marines beside Michael in Sangin Afghanistan. During that brief time Michael was tasked with ensuring my platoon had all the critical information to conduct a solid turnover of the battlespace that his platoon had been occupying. Without his attention to detail, countless hours of support, meticulous standardization of standard operating procedures and sheer passion for ensuring our success, lives would have most certainly been lost.
Michael's business vision and implementation follows the same core principles of when he was a leader of Marines overseas. Each article, publication, product, podcast and service all adorn those same rock solid principles in which he hardened in the Corps. His compassion for leading and ensuring success of his clients and partners are all directly in line with the importance he placed on his missions overseas.
Michael is certainly a trusted agent and pillar in my network when it comes to business strategy, all the way
down to daily tactical initiatives. If you are looking for someone to network, brainstorm, contract, purchase from or collaborate, there is no better person.
I am currently working with Mike on a growth and expansion initiative that we are embarking on. I have found that the 5 Paragraph Business Plan is a perfect fit for our needs. Mike does an incredible job of taking his military experience and translating it into the civilian/corporate world. Mike is a strategist and he has helped us craft and create a culture of accountability that I've never seen before. Whether you are an entrepreneur who is just getting started or are in management and are trying to make something great, even better, I would highly recommend putting Mike to work for your business needs.

All you have to do to know Michael is watch the TedX Raleigh presentation. That is who I have seen everyday since we met last year. Michael is a passionate and funny person with the leadership skills everyone says they are looking for. I have no hesitation to recommend my colleague and coworker Michael to lead your team to success. ~Jim R.
