Mike Frank worked his way up from salesman, to manager, to district manager, to regional manager, to national sales manager, to vice president of sales of an international sales corporation…all within four years and before he was 26 years old.
He’s spoken to over 3,000 audiences in the United States, Canada, Australia, Malaysia, the Bahamas, the Philippines, and Mexico.
Co-author of two books, Mike has been featured in many corporate “in house” videotape training programs, was the 1980-81 President of the 3,100 member, National Speakers Association and in 1980, received the CSP designation (Certified Speaking Professional) from the National Speakers Association. Fewer than 8% of the membership has received this distinction.
In 1990, Mike became the first and only speaker to receive both of the National Speakers Association’s highest honors in the same year. The CPAE Speaker Hall of Fame Award (Council of Peers Award for Excellence), presented to him by Dr. Norman Vincent Peale (only 185 other speakers have received this prestigious award…including Zig Ziglar and General Colin Powell) and the CAVETT AWARD, the most cherished honor in the speaking industry, only given to one speaker each year.
In 2004, Mike was a recipient of the “Legend of the Speaking Profession” award. Fewer than 50 speakers in the world have received this recognition.
