Program Descriptions

The “What If…?” Experience
The “What If…?” Experience is Mike’s transformational, hilarious keynote presentation. In it Mike uses his amazing guitar work and hilarious comedy as a metaphor, to illustrate three tools designed to turn your team into an army of innovators with the peak performance skills to transcend the status quo to stop managing change, and lead by creating change. Oh… and they’ll laugh so hard it hurts!

Every major invention, accomplishment and victory in human history began with the simple, almost childlike curiosity of a “What If…?” question. So, why isn’t your team asking this daily? And what if they were? After Mike’s presentation your team will look at problems and impossibilities and instead of turning away, they’ll instead ask, “What if we could? I know we can’t, but what if WE could?” They will set inspirational goals, perform like virtuosos, and achieve transformational results because of it.

Your Audience Will Learn:

  • Three simple, powerful, tools you can use immediately and forever to access your gold mine of unrealized potential; the tools which took Mike from playing bars to Carnegie Hall.
  • That managing change is not only stupid, it’s dangerous; you’ll learn how to stop managing change and start creating change; how to define the curve rather than follow it.
  • The most powerful motivational force on this planet. (Hint… it is not power, sex, money, or fame).
  • Why Book Mike Rayburn?

  • Voted by multiple publications as one of the top speakers in America and being an 8 time Carnegie Hall performer, Mike has many talents both musically and orally

  • Mike tunes his keynotes to each presentation, interweaving humor, song, instrumentals, and serious conversation accordingly.

    Mike Rayburn’s personal, business and career mission is simple: Transform communities. Whether that community is a business audience, an association, enrollees in his “What If…?” keynote experience, impoverished people world wide, or the lost in his hometown of Las Vegas, Mike’s daily efforts and life work are dedicated to transforming communities.

    Mike does this most often with his “What If…?” keynote presentations and breakouts, where he uses world-class guitar and hilarious comedy to teach the three simple, powerful tools which took him from playing empty bars, to headlining Carnegie Hall (eight times!). They work for anyone. And everyone. Always.

    When organizations need innovation and peak performance, where do they go? Usually it’s to business leaders, authors, or famous sports figures. Rarely do they go to artists! Yet for artists, creativity, innovation and peak performance are their life blood! Being a mega-successful artist, as well as a savvy entrepreneur and business owner, Mike Rayburn is uniquely qualified to teach artistic principles in a business context, to give businesses and organizations the edge they so desperately need to innovate and perform at peak “virtuoso” levels… and thus transform their success and significance.

    The measure of any speaker is the results they produce. Mike is consistently cited as “the hit of the conference,” and “what we needed and didn’t even know it.” More importantly, businesses regularly attribute significant, sometimes exponential increases in sales, impact and morale to the application of Mike’s keynote tools and breakout session content.

    "Mike knocked it out of the ballpark. From his opening you could tell the audience was engaged. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed it and my CEO/Chairman sent me an email the next day saying the entertainment was exceptional. Way to go, Mike! Absolutely one of the best performances I have seen."

    "Mike is absolutely phenomenal. He hooks you in right from the start. He is such a fantastic guitarist. I've booked him twice and he didn't disappoint either time."
    --Phillips 66

    "Rayburn was AMAZING!! Standing ovation, swarmed by the masses, lots of laughing, tears & goosebumps. His talent is beyond comparable to anything I’ve seen."
    --Delta Vacations

    "Mike Rayburn was the best keynote speaker we have had so far. That will be hard to top. What I liked best is he showed you how it applies to each one of us and how to do it."
    --Moneytree, Inc.

    "We have worked with Mike Rayburn on two separate occasions – and both times Mike delivered! We always look for speakers who motivate and inspire, and Mike’s message of “What If” was spot-on. It’s important to have audiences learn, but also have some fun along the way – and Mike really helped us do that by being thought-provoking and entertaining. I highly recommend Mike to anyone looking for a keynoter who can engage an audience on how to make the impossible, possible."
