"Live life more worthy of a statue than a tombstone." -Mike G. Williams
"Mike is a wealth of knowledge and experience. I would recommend Directors and staff to allow for as much time as they can with him prior to their event to talk with and just glean from him and his experiences. He exceeded our expectations for the event as well and I've had many of our donors ask to have him back next year."
"Mike did a great job! He was funny, personable, and did a great job expressing the needs of the ministry. We would definitely recommend him to help your fundraising banquet or any speaking event. Our guests loved him and expressed to us they would love to have him come back."
"Mike did an amazing job! He had the crowd in stitches, and everyone agreed wholeheartedly that we needed to laugh! However, he also gave the most effective appeal we've ever had. We more than doubled our prior most successful banquet. THANK YOU, MIKE!!"
"We LOVED how he spoke to EVERY table in the room. He included several names of people he met in the presentation...What an effective and pointed 'ask' tailored to the the group. This was the BEST ask we have ever experienced in our events."
"Mike Williams is the most effective fundraiser I've ever known. He works nonstop at connecting with every donor, before, during and after the event. His appeal is spot on, and he has a supernatural gift of reading people as he listens to the Holy Spirit. If I could, I would have him at EVERY fundraising event!"
"Mike was funny, absolutely passionate about rescued kids, and best financial appeal ever! Highly recommend him to any pregnancy help clinic for their fundraising banquet! He was even better than last year!"
"This is our 2nd year to have Mike Williams as our guest speaker for our fundraising banquet. He was fantastic! Our total raised for the evening far surpassed our expectations."
"Mike has done an outstanding job for us for 2 years. The thing that I appreciate most about Mike is his heart to serve pregnancy centers and to see them succeed. His suggestions for making our banquet better and ways to increase giving have been invaluable."
“This was our second year having Mike speak at our banquet, and he does a wonderful job! He is great and easy to work with, a true partner in ministry and in planning the event, and gives an incredible presentation at the banquet. We had some guests leave comments asking for him to come back a third year!”
"Mike did a great job of entertaining our audience, but more importantly, shared his heart for the unborn effectively. He kept our attention throughout the evening, and did an amazing financial appeal. We also learned a lot from his banquet planning site, www.banquetmoney.com."
