Michael Nir, Transformation Inspiration Expert, Lean Agile Coach; empowers organizations to deliver results;

For the last 17 years I have been working with numerous clients, the last 11 within my own consultancy where I provide management consulting specifically on project, Agile,Lean, program and portfolio management.

Kristina Krasinske about Influence and Leadership Keynote

I am writing to provide a professional reference for Michael Nir, whom I had a pleasure to meet and hear in Baltic Project Management Forum 2014, organized by PMI Lithuania Chapter. Michael gave a presentation on the topic: “Influence without authority – convincing the bear”
Michael would qualify for one of the most professional speakers I’ve ever encountered. His speech on the topic of authority and influence was presented in playful manner and certainly can be called a highlight of the day.

Mr. Nir is an electrifying public speaker. His passion for the subject is infectious. In just 20 minutes, forum attendees gained a fresh perspective on the importance of influencing the stakeholders and were given useful tips on stakeholder management. His presentation was enriched with illuminating story, valuable statistics, surprising paradoxes and a refreshing dose of good humor.

Project Manager at CSC

10 out of 10. One of the best speakers, trainers I have worked with since I started my business 12 years ago. Michael is a very passionate and knowledgeable trainer whom I surely will keep working with many years to come.
