Mike Williams started as a marketing consultant in 1981. Mike used media relations and marketing experience to help clients break new ground.
In the mid-80s, Mike began working intensely with Les Brown, helping him enter the world of public speaking. Les needed a strategist, so he turned to his "mentor" Mike Williams, to take the speaking world by storm.
So, Mike became the strategist who helped launch Les' career as a professional speaker, author, trainer, and entrepreneur. It was a re-start of the work they started in radio in the early 70s.
Other clients and projects came along, from a food-production company, medical and dental private practices, public policy advocates, television syndicators, and seminar/workshop companies.
Mike Williams Solutions has helped individuals and organizations define and harness their unique "stuff." As a marketing and organization consultant, Mike Williams has analyzed problems and found solutions for all his clients.
Mike has worked extensively with high-powered, high-profile, high-impact clients. They include thought leaders, independent professionals and heads of various companies and organizations. Mike pushes hard to maximize results.
Mike Williams Solutions uses resource specialists, as needed, to broaden its scope and impact, but Mike Williams is the consultant who works directly with all clients.
"Mike has been my mentor for over 40 years and the business strategist who helped me start and grow my business from zero to my first million-dollar year. And he has helped me multiply that success many times over."
