Michael Broome has a major in leadership development, and has become one of the most in demand professional speakers in America.
Michael Broome graduated from Appalachian State University, where he designed his academic major in leadership development. Within a few years of graduation, he began addressing any group composed of two or more; soon, Michael was speaking full time and has become one of the most sought after speakers in his profession.
During the last 22 years, the nearly three thousand audiences Michael has addressed have included events such as The Million Dollar Round Table, a Congressional Dinner, and in Spearfish, South Dakota--a Barbecue and Goat-Dipping. He has shared the podium with noted politicians, journalists, athletes, and CEO’s and takes pride in the fact that he has been upstaged only by an orangutan!
He and his wife Karen have three children. Their home is nestled in the middle of their 1000-acre farm where Michael grows hay and raises cattle as a sideline. He says farming is the most satisfying way that he knows to lose money. His primary hobby is building habitats and planting food plots for deer, quail, ducks, and the species with whom his wife says he has the most in common - the wild turkey!
The Broomes are active in their faith, are involved with numerous youth organizations, and have created a special summer camp for teens from residential children’s homes and foster homes.
Michael has serious concerns about the erosion of traditional values. An avid reader, his library bulges with volumes about people who have dedicated their lives to great causes. He chose a career in professional speaking because he has a sincere passion to inspire people to maximize their potential, serve others, enhance their sense of gratitude, and achieve a life balance. Michael believes that "success is when we have some of the things that money can buy and lot of the things that money can’t buy."
