Michelle Villalobos

MICHELLE VILLALOBOS has developed thirteen programs that have collectively been delivered – either virtually or in person – to over 70,000 people. She teaches, trains and talks about personal branding, networking, referral marketing, and the unique challenges women face in business – like “How To Communicate Powerfully (Without Being A Bit%$).” The Miami Herald named Michelle one of its annual “20 Under 40” in 2011. Michelle’s blog is featured on the website for Lifetime TV’s show “The Balancing Act,” and Telemundo regularly brings Michelle in to discuss how to get ahead in business. Michelle is bilingual and Hispanic. As an entrepreneur, Michelle has launched numerous endeavors. One of the most successful is The Women’s Success Summit, featuring hundreds of attendees, speakers, and sponsors. The event is currently Miami’s largest business conference for women, and expanding to several other cities nationwide. In addition, Michelle’s client roster features names you’ll recognize. For example, she has delivered her trademark “never-boring” programs for Burger King Corporation, Gibraltar Private Bank & Trust, Frito-Lay and Lexis-Nexis. Michelle advocates an “anti-marketing” approach to business, one that eschews traditional “push” tactics in favor of “pull” strategies that draw referrals, opportunities, media exposure, and – ultimately – sales. This is what she teaches clients, both individual and corporate. Michelle’s speaking style is casual and fun, and she regularly busts out her rainbow assortment of Sharpies to illustrate points using everyday, audience-appropriate examples (she recently constructed a price-value matrix using her shoe collection – the audience loved it). Michelle holds an undergraduate degree from Dartmouth College in Psychology modified with Mathematics, and an MBA in international business from University Of Miami. She is also qualified to administer and interpret the Myers-Briggs Personality Inventory (MBTI) and loves all manner of personality tests, quizzes and books. She is an ENFP, by the way. Michelle’s latest training program, “Make Them Beg” (www.MakeThemBeg.com) (developed together with Jessica Kizorek, founder of BadassBusinessWomen.org) is a wake-up call to anyone who still thinks that business success is still about “selling” instead of “seducing” or that Google isn’t the new resume. Michelle’s loftier mission in life is to eradicate gossip, backstabbing and unhealthy competition among professional women so that they can “get along, get ahead and get promoted.” To this end she recently published “Why Women Play Dirty” (www.WhyWomenPlayDirty) to raise awareness about this controversial and oftavoided topic. Since Day One Michelle has offered a no-holds-barred, no-questions-asked, noexcuses performance guarantee with every program, speaking engagement or product she delivers.
