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. 

Keynote Titles

  • Becoming Pressure Proof | Accelerating Productivity Under Pressure
  • Building Rainmakers | Grow Your Client Base in Competitive Markets
  • Maximizing your influence with difficult, demanding or negative people - without becoming drained


I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your professionalism and excellence in the delivery of the workshops to our consultants on “How to deal with negative and difficult people – without becoming drained”. The feedback from the session has been extremely positive. You provided a ‘toolbox’ for our people on both a personal and professional basis so that they are able to tackle each and every appointment with a clear mind, and you provided practical tips on how to handle a work-life balance. Most interesting was the segment about reading and understanding pressure profiles. This segment has motivated our consultants to think about our internal and external relationships and why they, and the people they work with, react to pressure situations in different ways.

We chose to work with Michael because a lot of our Franchisees are self employed business people and it can be tough running a business on your own, whilst looking for new clients, and we wanted to help our people become more resilient, stay positive, and proactive in their prospecting. Michael not only inspired our group to stretch their comfort zones, but also showed us how to do it in in their sales and business activity. Michael has worked across our organisation from our annual conference, to state manager mentoring and Franchisee training.

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.

I am writing to thank you for presenting the session on ‘Pressure Proofing yourself in work and life’ at the Maurice Blackburn and Associates’ and Senior Associates’ Conference. I appreciate the time and effort you invested in the preparation and presentation for the conference in the weeks prior. Your presentation provided attendees with relevant and useful information, and practical ways to manage the pressures experienced in the workplace and at home. The energy was fantastic, and the supporting materials great so that all is not forgotten once the conference is finished. I look forward to working with you in the future.
