Mike O’Connor’s Areas of Expertise: 

  • Telling Your Story

  • Corporate Art Sales

Mike O’Connor was listening to an artist talk, when he had a revelation. Something was missing, and the concrete faces of the art collectors around him confirmed it. The artists just weren’t connecting with the potential buyers in the audience. Drawing from decades of corporate art sales and presentation skills workshop expertise, Mike empowers artists to connect with buyers using the most effective presentation tool of all: their own story. His signature program The Fine Art of Storytelling combines humor, proven methodology and a passion for individual development to transform the presentation skills of artists and gallery owners alike.

As an artist representative for many years, Mike is no stranger to the challenges of having others see artwork the same way you do. He is also a seasoned financial services trainer, a role that has taken him around the nation leading workshops. He combines this dual expertise to deliver a methodology that cuts through technical jargon and straight to the heart of collectors.
