Michael Port has written six books, including Book Yourself Solid and Steal the Show, the latter which—according to the former President of Starbucks—“might be the most unique and practical book ever written on the topic of public speaking.”

He's been called an “uncommonly honest author" by the Boston Globe, a "marketing guru" by The Wall Street Journal, a “sales guru” by the Financial Times, “a public speaking phenom” by Jonathan Fields and “the best public speaking coach in the world” by Lewis Howes. The founder of MastermindTalks, Jayson Gaignard, declared, "Michael Port is the best speaker I've ever seen."

His books have been on the bestseller lists of the NY Times, Wall Street Journal, USA Today and Publisher's Weekly and have been selected by Amazon and 800-CEO-READ as "best books of the year."

He was once a professional actor, having received his MFA from NYU's Graduate Acting Program, guest starring on shows like Sex & The City and Law & Order, and in films like The Pelican Brief and Down to Earth. These days, Michael can be seen on MSNBC, CNBC, and PBS as an on air expert in communication and business development and as the host of the most popular podcast on public speaking and performance, Steal the Show with Michael Port.


Amy Port is the Co-Founder and President of Heroic Public Speaking; her work extends from the execution of corporate training packages, to development of CEO keynotes, private master classes and coaching.

After earning her MFA in Acting from The Yale School of Drama, Amy spent years acting professionally in theaters such as Seattle Repertory, Oregon Shakespeare and Yale Rep, and working consistently in commercials. She now applies the skills of performance that only well-trained actors know to the coaching of ‘non-actors’ looking to crush their sales presentations, to make their voices heard in TED Talk style presentations, and to take the big stage keynoting major conferences.

Geoffrey H. Garrett, a senior attorney at Byrd Garrett Wealth Preservation, said: “As a military pilot and B-747 captain over a forty-year career, I received every kind of skill-specific training and encountered every sort of teacher. I consider Amy to be, hands down, the best trainer-coach I have ever met. I cannot recommend her services highly enough."

Michael Port, I was mesmerized watching you coach public speakers. I'd pay admission just to witness it. You were meant to do it. Like watching art being made.

I just want to say, the energy in this group is incredible. A testimonial to how positive and caring Michael, Amy and the whole team are. In the time I've known them, I've learned so many lessons, not only from the content of their material, but the content of their character.

Because of Amy and Michael Port I am now a paid speaker. I never planned on broadcasting my message and stories to the world but damn, it feels so great to be on stage and make a difference in someone's life or biz. Like many of you I had a crush on Michael after listening to Book Yourself Solid in my ear 3 times. I then had the pleasure of meeting him through my dear friend Dawn Doherty... I hired Michael as my mentor then attended his live event in PA and again at CreativeLive... Amy and Michael set the bar high and I love being in their presence whenever the opportunity comes my way! This Boston Girl is so excited to get out of the snow and into the sun!!

This isn't my first rodeo. I've been hosting a radio show and podcast for nearly a decade, speaking to millions of people and am an experienced performer. I felt great behind the mic but was at a loss when it came to crushing it on stage when speaking in front of groups people. I went to dozens of public speaking coaches and got the same old, tired advice. Then I met Michael, saw him coach a student, and was blown away. Michael cuts to the core of what you actually need to get ridiculously good at speaking and performing, and the results are even more dramatic than I'd envisioned (and I'm a tough customer at this point). No tricks, just legit results that ensure that I'm the most popular speaker at every event which has been great for business. I now speak all over the world from the Pentagon, Afghanistan, India and Europe as well as the largest business conferences. I can safely say that this would frankly NEVER have happened if it weren't for Michael and his team. Now, stop reading this and work with Michael. You've got work to do.

"An indispensable guide for introverts and extraverts alike who want to shine when performing in public."
- Inc. Magazine

Every day there are moments when you must persuade, inform, and motivate others effectively. Each of these moments requires you in some way, to play a role to heighten the impact of your words, and manage your emotions and nerves. Every interaction is a performance whether you’re speaking up in a meeting, pitching a client, or walking into a job interview.
