Michael Kollwitz


I wanted to share some exciting news with you. I am transitioning into professional speaking, and I am thrilled to have the support of my coach, the talented guitarist and comedian Mike Rayburn. He is a sought-after Hall of Fame Speaker, and we have been working together for almost a year. I have already learned so much from him. Before working with Rayburn, I earned my Presentation Mastery certification from Toastmasters in 2022. I have also been an active member of the National Speakers Association Arizona chapter since last year.

I am giving a keynote presentation on Wednesday night, November 1st, at 6:00 p.m., at the Sedona Public Library here in Sedona. I would be honored if you could attend. The keynote is FREE and will last for one hour. The topic of my speech is ‘Art of Creative Problem-Solving.’ For my presentation, I will be using my mentor, the late Emmett Chapman, and his amazing invention, The Stick, as the perfect metaphors and teaching tools. I’ll also be incorporating my music and humorous stories to make the speech even more compelling. It will be educational, entertaining, and empowering.

I hope you can make it! Either way, please wish me success. And, as always, thanks for your support of my music over the years. I couldn’t have done it without you.


All the best,
