Michelle Anne Johnson, MBA
Consultant, Course Creator, and Facilitator

Michelle specializes in helping leaders at all levels – executives, technical subject matter experts, and high-potential professionals – prepare for high-visibility presentations. The key is speaking with Authenticity, Confidence & Purpose, which is the heart of her research-based framework: the ACP Presence Model.

An accomplished actress, Michelle was a professional performer in Los Angeles for over 20 years. She co-founded an award-winning theater company, wrote and performed in sketch comedy troupes and her own one-woman show, and has guest-starred in over 30 of the top television shows of the last 20 years, including FriendsCSI and CSI: Miami24NCISBonesCastle, and Modern Family.

Formerly a Program Director at Stand & Deliver, a boutique communication consulting firm, Michelle has an MBA from UNC’s Kenan-Flagler Business School, earning the distinction of valedictorian. Along with a BA from UCLA in Psychology and Masters Degree studies in Spiritual Psychology, she is also an MBTITM (Myers Briggs Type Indicator) Certified Practitioner.

An energetic and dynamic speaker, Michelle has worked with Fortune 500 companies from a variety of industries, including AbbVie, American Express, Cisco, Deloitte, Genentech, PepsiCo, Randstad, and Sony.

The experience of working with Michelle is easily one of the top moments in my career. Michelle not only help me prepare for the presentation but she also helped me with communication and life skills that I will carry with me for the remainder of my career.

If you were to ask me to grade my experience on a scale of 1 to 10 with 10 being the highest – I would say a 20.

J.S., Managing Director

Every hour I spent with her was so worth the time! I engaged Michelle to help me articulate my brand and storytelling, as well as work with me on my delivery, confidence, and executive presence. She was able to zero in on my needs, get to the root cause of where I was having challenges, help to clarify and crystallize my messaging and really help me take my presence to the next level.

N.P., Partner

Michelle was a pleasure to work with. She helped me to find my own voice and be able to develop materials that reflected my true character. This made it so much easier to present the material. Then Michelle helped me to bring out the best in my own delivery by finding ways to let my personality shine through. I would highly recommend using Michelle as she helps to enhance who you are as a presenter.

Of the coaches I have interacted with over the course of my career, Michelle is one of the best I have encountered. Her energy, passion, insight and commitment to my success came across from my first interaction with her. I learned a great deal from her and her encouragement has helped me be successful.
