Become a Virtuoso

Become a Virtuoso

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 “What If…?” Experience is Mike’s transformational, hilarious keynote presentation. In it Mike uses his amazing guitar work and hilarious comedy as a metaphor, to illustrate three tools designed to turn your team into an army of innovators with the peak performance skills to transcend the status quo to stop managing change, and lead by creating change. Oh… and they’ll laugh so hard it hurts!

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.

Also, in the same way a great song gets stuck in your head, Mike’s “What if…?” message gets repeated over and over, imprinting his most powerful tool in their memories and affecting immediate results and permanent improvement.

Always on the cutting edge, international keynote speaker Mike Rayburn is a Certified Speaking Professional (CSP), Hall of Fame speaker (CPAE),  two-time TEDx presenter, has performed more than 4,000 presentations and his comedy remains in heavy rotation on Sirius/XM radio. Mike has been featured in USA Today, Newsweek, Billboard, American Entertainment, Gig, and Successful Meetings magazines.

The “What If…?” Experience

- Within 30 seconds your group will know that the impossible is possible.
- Within two minutes they’ll be laughing and engaged.
- By the end they’ll be on their feet, energized and equipped with solid business tools and wisdom.

Mike Rayburn’s “What IF? Keynote Experience” is about:

Innovation…finding and creating the opportunities, products, and processes that others miss.

Change…moving from managing change to creating change.

High Performance…making those opportunities happen.

Your teams will leave with the tools to do just that. Oh, and they’ll laugh so hard it hurts! More than anything…“The What IF? Keynote Experience” is just that: An EXPERIENCE. As an opening or closing keynote, or mid-conference energizer, “What IF?” will make your event successful and unforgettable. No one does what Mike Rayburn does.

Takeaways...your teams will:

- Learn three powerful tools to access their unrealized potential
- Create change, rather than manage change
- Discover the opportunities they’re currently missing
- Set and achieve bold, empowering goals
- Embrace their uniqueness as their competitive edge
