The compelling way he weaves your story all through the presentation will open their checkbooks. Laughing people give more than crying people! It is just a fact.

"Live life more worthy of a statue than a tombstone." -Mike G. Williams
"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."
"We were able to raise almost three times the amount of money we had the past 5 fundraisers we had!"
"I LOVE Mike! I love his passion for LIFE! He is so easy to work with. I love how he works with me to develop our event. I love his presentations. I love his appeals. I could have him each year as our speaker!"
“WOW! What can we say-- we have never had a request to bring a speaker back-- but this year that is the common request! Our donors loved him! Several are still laughing! And our donations were over the top. One thing we were very impressed with was how he ask people not only for a one time donation for the evening, but for filling out a long term donation as well. It worked! We have several that did just that. Thanks, Mike!”
“Many people commented on how much they enjoyed his stories, but especially how he gave tangible examples for what donors’ contributions would be used for at the Center (phone bill, training, resources, etc.). With pledges, we had the best response ever in donations!”
