Quote on Greek University's presentations

"Michael did a great job helping our Greek community understand the many ways that risks can become catastrophes without the implementation of safeguards and prevention measures. He provided a day of education and awareness that went from the origins of fraternal organizations and secret societies to issues of risk, including hazing and sexual assault awareness and prevention. He was captivating and well-received by our students, providing an innovative and interactive experience for our Greek community. He tailored the day to our desires and delivered.”

Quote on Greek University's presentations

"From the moment I met him, I recognized that he was the kind of person that I wanted to surround myself and my students with. One of my favorite things about working with Mike was his ability to connect with my students on a level that has stuck with them years past his time with them. Amazing!"

Quote on Greek University's presentations

"Michael is single-handedly the best speaker I have ever witnessed. He is very knowledgeable about Greek relations. He is very passionate about what he does and it shows when he speaks. I am very pleased that we were able to work together and get Michael to Southern Arkansas University."

Quote on Greek University's presentations

"He is highly engaging and a thought-provoking speaker; he makes you think of leadership in a new way. He has all of the most important qualities in business: credibility, competence, and caring. There are only a select few people who have left a lasting impression on my life, and Michael is at the top of my list."

Quote on Greek University's presentations

"I was able to book Michael Ayalon for our bid day speech to discuss the positives of Greek Life with the new male members of our Greek Community at Syracuse University. From start to finish Michael demonstrated a high skill set in public speaking as well as strong enthusiasm and charisma for his work. I will be sure to stay in contact with him for any future public speaking events we may have and I’m looking forward to working with him in the near future."

Quote on Greek University's presentations

"Michael is professional and knowledgeable. He has a special way to inspire people as he educates them on best practices. I've known Michael for some time and highly recommend him. In a time when it's difficult to know if you're investing your money wisely, I can confidently recommend Michael for your efforts!"

Quote on Greek University's presentations

"Michael is a phenomenal speaker and leader. He does what many can't do: connect to millennials and inspire them to achieve more. He's THE man.... Stop reading this recommendation and just bring him in to speak already."

Quote on Greek University's presentations

"From the start to finish, Michael successfully captivated the attention of the entire room. His superior public speaking skills, enticing up to date content, passion and ability to connect with millennials will leave you and your peers energized and motivated to go out and make a difference on your campus. You WILL NOT be disappointed in choosing Michael to speak at your campus or organization!"

Quote on Greek University's presentations

"With Mike, you won't find someone that is cookie-cutter and generic, but instead someone that is genuine and approachable. I believe this is why Mike is able to connect with anyone he crosses paths with, regardless of background and experience. I also believe this to be a leading indicator of Mike's passion for helping others. Mike cares about our organizations, and isn't afraid to tackle the more sensitive issues that plague the Greek community across our country. He welcomes the discussion of said issues head on, and in this sense is a breath of fresh air. Discussing sensitive topics though is only half the battle, the other half is finding solutions to combat these issues. Mike has the experience, knowledge, and resources for finding solutions. I give a man like Mike Ayalon the highest recommendation, not only for his work as a professional and leader, but for the kind of man he is on a personal level as well."

Quote on Greek University's presentations

"Having Michael give presentations to our Greek community has always been an uplifting experience. His presentations have helped guide my fraternity's chapter and because of it we are well informed on how we can become a larger success as a chapter of our fraternity, as well as in the Greek Community that we are part of."

Quote on Greek University's presentations

"I have heard Michael speak several times over the past few years. His sessions are always very informative and are very relatable to the average college student, with plenty of relevant and realistic examples of success to facilitate interest and inspiration for student organizations to thrive and grow. More recently, I have listened to him tackle important issues in risk management, such as sexual assault prevention and community involvement under the Greek University banner. Michael's new initiative is one that will greatly influence Greek Life for years to come, and I would recommend any director of student life to bring in Michael as an educator for the college population."
Speaking at the University of New Hampshire

Quote on Greek University's presentations

"As a student affairs professional, it is evident that the change and direction Mike brought to the fraternity has made Sigma Pi one of the leading organizations in the industry today. Other than tremendous growth in membership and academic development achieved during his time as executive director, Mike launched new and innovative programs for both undergraduate and alumni members. During my time as the fraternity and sorority advisor at Middle Tennessee State University, I had the pleasure of working with Mike on multiple occasions, as he provided training and education to the entire fraternity/sorority community in the areas of hazing prevention, academic achievement, sexual violence prevention, and chapter development. Perhaps what I admire most about Mike is his passion--his passion for people, communication, social issues, the fraternal movement, and relationships. I am beyond grateful for individuals like Mike who dedicate their lives for a cause they believe in. Through the work we do as fraternity/sorority professionals, I find hope and inspiration in the services Mike provides to Greek members across the country. I am amazed at his ability to reach students at the core of their development and highly recommend his programs and services."

Quote on Greek University's presentations

"Michael gave a great speech that catered to both new members and current members of our Greek organizations. He was also very helpful in observing Greek practices at our school and making suggestions on how to better improve the community."

Quote on Greek University's presentations

"Michael did a fantastic job engaging our undergrads on the topics of alcohol safety and sexual assault prevention. One student came up to me after the TiPS training to let me know that he had been to many alcohol safety sessions ran by his school. He said that this was the first session that he actually learned something. That is extremely impressive considering the topics of his presentations. Michael was also a pleasure to work with and will hopefully be a repeat presenter for AEPi conventions in the future."

Quote on Greek University's presentations

"Michael's visit was a fantastic way to kick off National Hazing Prevention Week at Stony Brook University. The tools and information he gave us are invaluable and will surely help us spread awareness to the defining characteristics of hazing as well as the methods and motivation to actively end it. "

Quote on Greek University's presentations

"Michael's presentation was amazing on a subject that Greeks don't want to talk about: harm reduction. For most of our chapters, we don't talk about prevention of harm or risk issues until something happens. Thank you for starting a conversation that needed to be started on our campus."

Quote on Greek University's presentations

"Thank you for an excellent presentation! We are already seeing some positive changes through the community and hope that it continues from within the groups. We look forward to partnering again in the future."

Quote on Greek University's presentations

"Michael was invited to our campus to certify several of our Greek students in TiPS. Michael did an outstanding job and was extremely easy and flexible to work with from start of the planning process to the post assessment of the event. Michael's genuine care for students' well being shines through all of his work."

Quote on Greek University's presentations

"When we wanted to host a New Member orientation event at Drexel University, I knew exactly who we needed to call. Michael ran an amazing event for over 300 students; focusing on hazing, Greek leadership, and how to come together as a community. This may have been the first time that we hosted Michael, but it definitely will not be the last!"

Quote on Greek University's presentations

"The students were highly motivated and engaged throughout the entire presentation. Mike is passionate and thought provoking. He addresses students and challenges them in a way where they feel inspired and ready to confront social norms on campus. I know that we will work with Mike again in the future!"
