In the world of business, service, and sales, no matter how confident, competent or experienced you are, setbacks are a part of every process.  How well you handle those failures, challenges, and problems will often determine how successful you are going to be. 

Michael Licenblat is a resilience expert who teaches people how to perform better under pressure by bouncing back from pressures, setbacks, and rejections. 

Born into a family of entrepreneurial parents, Michael grew up working inside the numerous family businesses and quickly learnt that success often came to those who can ride the bumps, get up, and keep going.

Over 20 years ago, Michael became one of the pioneers in building a successful natural therapies business through overcoming market rejection, refusals and knockbacks. 

Drawing on his background in Psychology, Shiatsu therapy, and over 25 years of Martial Arts experience, Michael has helped countless companies become 'pressure proof' and learn how to bounce back from the setbacks and rejections so they can out-achieve their competition.

In Michael’s upbeat, interactive, and hands on presentations, he takes you into the world of reading ‘pressure patterns’ and building personal resilience so that you walk away with practical ideas on how to ‘keep your drive alive’.

Michael is an author of ‘Pressure Proof – how to thrive in time of disruption, change, and pressure’. His articles are regularly published in several journals and, for over 10 years, has delivered presentations to organisations such as Toyota, Chemmart, REIV, Coles Myer Ltd., Pitcher Partners, St George, Smartline, SEEK, Hocking Stuart, Maurice Blackburn Lawyers, Maunsell, SalesForce, and the Victorian Parliament.

“As a result of the Matrix Training we have identified and acknowledged that increasing the weekly activities in particular, property inspections and open houses, we have created an increase in our sales activity and subsequently higher commissions. This has been very evident with our lower income producers who we have worked extensively with the Matrix training model and it has been successful.”

Drew Cahill, Director, Dungey Carter Ketterer Real Estate

“Michael Licenblat was an outstanding presenter and his format was both informative and interactive so the time went very quickly. I found the session positive and rewarding; the concepts he covered and the breadth of experience he drew on resonated with men and women alike, from my observation, more so because they were real situations drawn from his life. As his training is very soundly based in both his academic and broader professional training his genuine commitment to the concepts he espoused was obvious”.

Jane Clarke, Project Management Consultant, City Of Port Phillip

"Michael delivered a fantastic seminar for our clients, where he energised the audience with his simple to understand style and exceptional knowledge and skills. The audience was engaged right from the start, and left committed to improving themselves, overcoming reluctance and staying motivated. Michael is an exceptional ‘people coach’ who delivered a wonderful program."

Mark O'Reilly Director, Austbrokers Countrywide

“Thank you for a great presentation that you delivered to the retail sales team of Scotts Australia. Your high energy and interactive style engaged the team right from the beginning and kept them interested and involved all the way through. Everyone in the conference took away new ideas and skills to enhance their resilience and working stamina that will, no doubt, help them reach their sales targets. Michael, I thought your program was 'spot on' for our team and look forward to working with you again in the future."

Stuart Smith, National Sales Manager Scotts Australia
