I speak on topics related to leadership, education and productivity. As a leader, I routinely have the opportunity to speak to both small and large audiences and I know how difficult it is to finding the right kind of speaker for my own staff.
When you can match a great speaker with the needs of your group, good things can happen. By reading through this page, you'll gain a better sense of who I am and how I might be able to help you.
I will customize my message for your organization. The key is to find the desired outcome and then tailor the talk or workshop to meet those ends. I am currently providing talks and workshops around the following focus areas:
"Leading in the Digital Age: How Technology can Help You Sink or Swim" / Not every leader uses technology to its fullest potential. From the ins and outs of Twitter to building a personal blog, this workshop provides practical tips on building a platform that uses technology for the sake of leadership.
“Spirituality of Work: How Your Career Just Might Save the World” / If it's true that God is present in and through our work then why do so many people dread Mondays? From the Church's teaching on the value of work to the causes of workplace stress, this workshop aims to help people be transformed through work and then build a workplace of meaning.
“Leadership from the Inside-Out: A Soulful Approach to Organizational Change” / Mother Theresa once said that "God doesn't call the equipped but instead equips those who have been called." Rather than pointing at others, this workshop seeks to increase personal reflection on the importance of spiritual leadership. Your workplace (and you!) will never be the same.
“Getting It Done: Personal Productivity in the Digital Age” / This workshop introduces leaders to the skill-set of time management, calendaring, to-do lists, GTD and much more. Rather than focusing on mission statements and vision, this workshop tackles work from the ground up. We address email, meetings, and information overload in ways that are understandable, from the novice to the expert.

“Michael St. Pierre provides a unique way of reminding the audience that our work is both sacred and stressful. That is to say, our work is the gift God gives to us; and amidst our toil we experience many challenges that plague nearly all of us. Mike’s entertaining and personal perspectives helped me take one step back to see the big picture. I recommend his presentation to everyone from staff members to superintendents!”
