Sandler Training in Akron and Columbus, Ohio

Owner, The Ruby Group in Akron and Columbus

Mike developed an interest in the Sales and Management training business when he realized the need for people to get out of their own way in order to over-achieve.  His favorite part of working as an advisor to organizations and individuals is in helping them to discover their true potential and value by eliminating their ‘head trash’ and self-imposed limitations. This allows him to work with a variety of companies; to abolish average and instigate opportunities and develop innovative solutions for clients and create lasting, sustainable change.

Michael’s strengths of real life business sense and ‘tell it like it is’ advice have earned him a reputation that many would envy.
