Co-Founder, Chief Executive Officer

A New York Times and Wall Street Journal bestselling author, Michael Port has published nine books that have been translated into 29 languages. After spending two decades delivering thousands of speeches on the world’s biggest stages, Michael sold his first company, Book Yourself Solid Worldwide. Now, Michael puts his visionary thinking to work as HEROIC's Chief Executive Officer, where he attempts to lead with gratitude, grace, and humility.

Back in the 90s, after he received his MFA from NYU's Tisch School of the Arts Graduate Acting Program, you would have seen him in hit shows like Sex & The City, Third Watch, Law & Order, The Pelican Brief, Down to Earth, and many others. You also would have seen him or heard his voice on some of the most played radio and TV ads in the country, for companies like AT&T, Budweiser, and Pizza Hut.

He found very little meaning in that work, which is why he loves running an organization that helps people be more self-expressed and transform their careers. Michael's journey is a compelling example for our students, embodying the attainability and potential of a meaningful and successful career transition.
