More about Michelle Villalobos:

Michelle’s client roster features names you’ll recognize. For example, she has delivered her trademark “never-boring” programs for Burger King Corporation, American Express, 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, opportunities… and ultimately, sales. This is what she teaches her clients – both individual and corporate.

Some of her most popular programs include “It’s Not Who You Know, It’s Who Knows YOU”; “You: The Online Brand”; “Networking ROCKS”; and “If They Don’t LOVE It, It’s Just SPAM”. Her 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” (developed together with Jessica Kizorek, founder of 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.
