How Do You Talk About Rotary? - Michael Angelo Caruso

Michael Angelo Caruso is a “lifetime Rotarian” based in District 6380.  His home club is the Rotary Club of Troy, Michigan.   Mr. Caruso was introduced to Rotary via the old Group Study Exchange (GSE) program, now known as Vocational Training Teams(VTT).  “There was a long preparation period prior to the trip,” says Michael, “And I learned more about Rotary in six months than most Rotarians learn in six years.”  “I was so impressed with this great service organization, that I decided to join as soon as I got back from South Africa.”  Michael has now been a Rotarian for 20 years.
He’s served many positions at the club and District level, specializing in public image and leadership. Mr. Caruso will serve as Governor of  Rotary District 6380 in southeast Michigan and western Ontario Canada in 2016-17. Michael is a professional speaker who teaches presentation skills and he often gives back to Rotary.  Watch this video, produced by fellow Rotarian, Jason Hale, as Michael encourages members to become dedicated leaders for Rotary.

Mr. Caruso is a valued communication consultant to companies and organizations all over the world and has delivered over 2,000 paid presentations and keynote speeches on the subjects of leadership, selling, and Internet marketing. He has spoken in Europe, Africa, the Middle East, the Caribbean, 49 of the 50 states and many of his talks have been pro bono performances for Rotary.

Michael enjoys helping Rotary become even better.  His impressive Community Partner Program has raised over $500,000 and recruited dozens of new Rotarians for various clubs in North America by speaking at public events hosted by Rotary.

His clients include Bank of America, Citgo, Rayovac, Hallmark, The National Institutes of Health, Verizon Wireless, the United States Navy, and Nissan. Michael also blogs for DBusiness magazine, recently voted the best business magazine in America. Michael educates and entertains, drawing on a previous career in the telecommunications industry and a decade as a professional musician. Michael is author of the 5 Cool Ideas books, an audio book on legacy titled, the FastLearnerAudio series, and the Present Like a Pro DVD. He has graciously agreed to stay after the program to answer questions and speak with those of you who are searching for a speaker for a future event.
