Michael C. Anthony Florida
MICHAEL C. ANTHONY

It all started when Michael was 9 years old...and it started all wrong. He stole a deck of playing cards from a store near his home and was thrown in jail. Really? Yes, really. When the police officer that lived across the street from Michael's family heard what had happened he decided to teach Michael a lesson. He came to Michael's home, put him in the back of his police car, drove him to the county jail and locked him up...for about 30 minutes but it felt like years to a scared 9 year old. A valuable lesson learned and with no felony charges.

But it was those cards, those 52 pieces of pasteboard that intrigued Michael. They started him on a quest of twisting reality, shattering perception and melting minds. The sleight of hand, the sleight of mind, the mental gymnastics became Michael's obsession.

Michael attended Canada's Niagara College and then went on to study Neuro Linguistic Programming and Ericksonian suggestion. Michael took a job with General Motors but his passion pushed him to go after what he loved, entertainment.

Michael woke up one day and decided that he was going to quit his job and start presenting his Mind Games full-time, and he did! Michael quickly rose in the entertainment world and became known for his charismatic presence on stage and his ability to entertain audiences with his mastered art. Throughout the years, Michael has presented in 48 states and 4 continents. He's been nominated Entertainer of the Year 7 times from CA Magazine (an industry magazine), performed in Las Vegas and has been seen on CBC ABC NBC and Fox.

A student of success and persuasion techniques, Michael parlayed his unique abilities with training others how to reach their goals, persuade and lead. .Michael created The Totally Mental Makeover which is a widely received, hilarious and inspiring keynote presentation that combines Michael's hilarious mind boggling mental stunts with a powerful, high content message. Your mind will be blown and inspired at the same time. Michael uses his 3 pronged approach of Belief, Tenacity and Expectation to motivate audiences to overcome obstacles, accept no limitations and to continually reach higher.

Less than a year ago, Michael received a kidney transplant. He was one of the first of a handful to be selected for a clinical research program in which he received not only a kidney but a stem cell transplant and bone marrow transplant from his donor (Who happens to be his awesome brother) It was both an exhausting and exhilarating experience which is proving to be the Holy Grail of organ transplant protocols. Michael continues to be one of less than a dozen people in the world living with a transplanted organ without the need of life long anti-rejection medications.

Michael resides in Tampa, FL with his wife, daughter and far too many pets. And to this day when he needs playing cards, he buys them like everybody else.

  • Shut Up And Sell With Your Body - Michael C. Anthony's hilarious and interactive lecture, Body Language Secrets will give you an unfair advantage in the real world. 55% of all communication is non-verbal and only 7% is the actual words we use.

Now you can know what others are thinking simply by understanding their body language and just as importantly you will learn to change your own body language to "speak" to others without saying a word.

    In this keynote you will discover:
    • What body language will show others you are an expert
    • The different types of handshakes and which to use
    • Eye accessing cues...become a human lie detector
    • What crossing your legs says about you
    • What non-verbal cues make other want to buy from you
    • What your walk says about you
    • Why your smile is your most effective asset

Anthony's Totally Mental Makeover is an inspiring keynote program that entertains your group while motivating them to reach for the next level.

    But that's only the beginning. Interlaced throughout the comedy and hijinx is a high content message that will challenge your participants to push forward and accept no limitations. The content is based on Michael's 3 point "cut to the chase" model of Belief, Tenacity & Expectation. He shares stories and uses the humor as a metaphor to make the points hit home.

It's hilarious. It's engaging. It's interactive. It's The Totally Mental Makeover!

  • Transplant Transformation: From Death's Door to Living Large - Michael C. Anthony was already an award winning entertainer and professional keynote speaker when his world came to a screeching halt. His doctors informed him that he had advanced kidney disease and he was failing fast. He had the choice of a life of dialysis or to be put on the transplant waiting list. He didn't have to choose either. Michael's brother quickly stepped in to offer his kidney, but it wouldn't be that simple. The intense journey involved high dose chemotherapy, total body radiation and the stem cell / bone marrow and kidney transplant. The aggressive protocol offered the potential of total recovery without the need of lifelong and potentially potent immunosuppressive medication. This seemed impossible but it was the ultimate goal.

    Michael is and continues to be one of only a small handful of people in the world living with a transplanted organ without the need of life long anti-rejection medications. His inspiring and hilarious stories will delight any audience. They'll be on the edge of their seats as he shares stories from his gratitude toward his brother to his story of fainting in the shower only to be found by four nurses. Michael's goals are to motivate, empower and inspire others to overcome any obstacles or adversity they may have in their own lives. His gratitude toward healthcare professionals and living life to its fullest shines bright throughout his presentation...so much so that it's contagious.

  • Sleight of Mind - Michael's "entertainment only" presentation. There is no content in this program unless you would like a small piece put in on the end.

    Imagine...Thought of words are revealed. Predictions made months before Michael's program will unfold right before your eyes. Michael will even predict what your President/CEO will wear to the event. Michael will have you call a friend with your cell phone and Michael will even tell your friend what they are thinking. He will even play a game of "lie detector" with four volunteers and determine who's a good liar and who isn't. All in good fun of course. Sleight of Mind is a laugh a minute, mind boggling presentation that your participants won't soon forget.

  • All Stressed Out & and No One to Choke (Breakout Session) - All Stressed Out and No One to Choke is Michael's humorous yet insightful look at how to handle and conquer stress. We've all experienced stress. Many experience stress daily and for long periods of time. This is very unhealthy. This standing room only breakout session will teach several techniques and insights to allow attendees to be in charge of their stress instead of stress being in charge of them.
