Our mission is to improve communication skills and develop confidence within enterprising leaders – inspiring and transforming them into a positive force in their communities.
Michael Esposito, the founder, and owner of an executive consulting firm and an insurance company, is making his mark in two industries.
As a speaking consultant, Michael has helped executives refine their presentation skills, improve their confidence and find their authentic voice as presenters, through one-to-one coaching, and workshops. As principal of his insurance company, Michael assists individuals and business owners in protecting their assets and understanding their insurance policies.
These two paths converge because Michael is a person that cares for, looks out for his people, and inspires them to become their greater selves. His motivational Podcast on iHeart Media recently hit the airwaves and was met with encouragement and accolades. His experience as an executive board member for the non-profit Forgotten Children of Haiti, is an example of his dedication to his community and his desire to help others.
Michael is always leveraging his skills to create new opportunities. His family and friends as well as Toastmasters, Hudson Valley Basketball Association, and the New Paltz Regional Chamber of Commerce play a role in much of his success. However, he attributes his ability to take on new roles and responsibility to the love and support of his wife, Devon.

“I am a very reserved and soft-spoken person that typically prefers to listen rather than speak and I have always struggled with public speaking. Michael Esposito's public speaking workshop and coaching sessions provided me with great tools and tips to help calm my nerves, gather my thoughts, and have confidence in my abilities and my message. An effective leader needs to be able to communicate confidently and effectively and Michael's workshop helped me to develop important communication and public speaking skills to be able to do just that. I would definitely recommend this workshop to anyone that is interested in honing their presentation or public speaking skills, or even just working on becoming more comfortable and confident in that type of setting. I am grateful for the skills and knowledge that Michael shared with me and my team and I will continue to utilize him as a resource. Thanks for an amazing workshop, Michael!”Allia A., Business Credit Analyst - Hudson Valley Credit UnionPublic Speaking Services
