We hired Michelle to provide a virtual motivational “lunch & learn” for our staff in May of 2020 as we were struggling with the challenges of working remotely through the COVID-19 pandemic. A virtual presentation with Michelle is like being in the same room with her, and her presentation was well received!  She keeps her audience engaged through her humour, thought provoking comments, questions, and energy.  I have attended in-person sessions with her as well as virtual, and we will be engaging her again!

I have experienced several keynotes and motivational talks with Michelle over the last 15 years and I am always pleased with her delivery.  She is funny, witty and insightful.  She often causes me to sit back, process and take a breath!  During Covid in March of 2020, I was tasked with organizing a Virtual Speaker Series for our Glencoe Club members.  I immediately thought of Michelle.  The timing of her message was perfect and really resonated with our members.  I highly recommend Michelle for your next event!
Jessica Power Cyr, The Glencoe Club
Michelle presented at our virtual all staff speaker series with a focus on stress management and self care management. Michelle is a dynamic speaker that engages the audience, even when the event is virtual. You can feel Michelle’s energy right thru the computer! She reminded us of the importance of watching for trigger signs of stress and how it expresses itself physically, mentally and emotionally. Michelle shared her fantastic tools with us and provided us with opportunities to connect with her after the event.

I have also had the honour of seeing Michelle present in person at an all day professional development workshop and her humour and enthusiasm shines brightly! I highly recommend Michelle Cederberg for your next event!
Camille Barry, College and Association of Registered Nurses of Alberta
Michelle was an excellent speaker full of enthusiasm and energy. Her presentation was both fun and educational, reminding everyone how important it is to just take a moment for themselves. In the world we live in today, everything is go- go- go.  Michelle however was able to remind us that we need to take a moment to just breathe, focus, stay positive, and make time for ourselves. Her message gave the team a new perspective and I feel they came away with great ideas to make life a more positive journey going forward.
Jenn Cavanagh, Clique Hotels & Resorts
Michelle was an excellent presenter.  She kept in touch leading to the days of the presentation and worked to personalize the message to our employees.  Many of our employees felt it was the best PD day that we had put on and felt a real connectedness to the message she gave out.  We had her present Energized for Excellence as the keynote in the morning and Think, Talk and Act your way to a Better Day as an afternoon breakout.  She kept everyone’s attention and had many laughs throughout the day. I definitely recommend Michelle for any audience.

The executive director of a chamber of commerce is a key representative and advocate for business owners and employers in a community.  Chamber directors plan, organize and oversee a wide range of services and events for members, which can often leave them stretched to the max.  Michelle's message and practical advice on balancing the success-energy equation was bang on and what our audience of Chamber executives needed to hear.  Thank you Michelle for presenting our keynote during our 2019 ACE Summit and professional development.
Linda Sallstrom, Alberta Chamber Executives
Michelle was wonderful to work with and really took the time to collaborate with us to customize her message and focus on topics that were relevant to our group.

We conducted a survey after the event and the results showed that >90% of the team were very satisfied or satisfied by the presentation made by Michelle. It was very impressive, and Michelle really exceeded all the previous guest speakers we used in the past.

Everyone in the room left motivated and re-engaged. Shell Retail would highly endorse Michelle for any audience. She did a fantastic job at getting the attention of the group with her lively and energized presentation.

Michelle provided a thought-provoking half-day program at our Developing Leadership Workshop for Public Service Employees. Her session was very well-received and included ideas and insights for work-life betterment that everyone could implement right away. She provided simple solutions to often difficult workplace issues and her ‘Do the Work’ message was universally well received! I have received both positive feedback and requests for further sessions with Michelle from many attendees who felt she truly inspired them. I highly recommend Michelle as a keynote speaker for any company or agency seeking to improve employee wellness and live a better life.

Michelle got our conference off to a positive and focused start with her keynote speech about work/life balance. Within the first minute of her presentation she had our conference delegates laughing and fully engaged in her message. She was wonderful to work with and really took the time to understand her audience to make sure her message focused on topics that were relevant to our group. I have seen a lot of keynote speakers over the years and Michelle is absolutely one of the best.
Mike Rosson, Assistant Executive Director / Nova Scotia International Student Program
I have heard Michelle speak twice before, and would jump at an opportunity to hear her again. She will gauge your group and customize her presentation, keeping your interest with her heartwarming stories and enthusiastic energy that she brings to the room. I remember and live by her quotes on living life to the fullest.
Barry Bynoe, Corporate Health & Safety Officer, Regional Municipality of Durham
Michelle Cederberg recently came to Canada Diagnostic Centres as a guest speaker for our X-ray and Ultrasound Technologists. She has a wonderful ability to connect with the audience, and immediately brought everyone's spirit up. I have heard nothing but great things from all of the technologists about Michelle's presentation. Her tips and tricks to stay energized at work are already being used at CDC. I highly recommend Michelle as a keynote speaker for any industry. Everyone left the conference energized for excellence!
Jess Kraneveldt, Radiology Manager, Canada Diagnostic Centres
We recently hired Michelle to be our keynote speaker for our Annual Spring Education Day/AGM. She is an extremely engaging speaker, and I wish we could have heard her speak for the entire day. She brought a lot of laughter and energy into the room and provided simple take-aways for us to use on a daily basis. Michelle used her personal stories to engage the whole audience, and tailored her self-care presentation to meet our specific needs. This topic is especially important for all, and I would highly recommend Michelle to any group. Michelle really connects with her audience and keeps the group engaged.
Natasha Brandt, Conference Chairperson, Saskatchewan Society of Nutrition Management
Rocky View Foundation has had the pleasure of working with Michelle Cederberg on three different occasions. Most recently she presented her Work Life Energy session to our management team in Crossfield. Her material was interesting, relatable and thought provoking. We had lots of laughter, a few tears and plenty of inspiration to think about the areas we would like to change in our lives, plus the motivation to get started. Thank you Michelle!
Gail Nowlan, Human Resources Manager, Rockyview Foundation
Michelle presented at our staff wellness event and shared ways to incorporate positive thinking into our often-challenging jobs. The feedback received from our staff was nothing but positive. We loved her upbeat, quirky and fun approach. She made the very important, but often uninspiring topic of staff well-being very engaging, funny and practical. We would definitely love to experience the additional modules that we did not have time to cover, and look forward to welcoming her back in the near future. Keep up the great work!
Matthew Cheng, Assistant Team Lead, Mental Health Specialist, The Alex: Pathways to Housing
Michelle was our Keynote Speaker at a Leadership Event our organization hosted. She was upbeat, knowledgeable, fun and funny! Michelle’s practical approach to taking small steps resonated so well with the audience. Our guests left feeling invigorated, energized, and learned some great tips about embracing a healthier lifestyle. We had continuous positive feedback for weeks following her presentation.
Meredith Bongers, Communications Consultant, Excel Society
Michelle was our guest speaker as part of our staff health and wellness initiative. Her down to earth suggestions on creating more energy for yourself in a busy life are simple and easy for anyone to achieve. Michelle delivers her message in a fun and creative way, and gives her audience helpful tips. You can’t help but feel energized after hearing this lady speak!
Laura Morden, Health and Safety Coordinator, Lethbridge College
Michelle was the kick-off speaker for our new women’s initiative – WISE (Women in Support of Excellence.) Her presentation, Energized for Excellence, was fun, informative and witty. Michelle had our group laughing right from the beginning. The women took away some fabulous advice to begin the process of making themselves and their careers better and more focused.
