Testimonials

Dan Duckering, Founding Partner at DEXIO Inc./President & CEO Duckering’s Tranport Ltd.

“Mike Mack is a genuine leader who consistently delivers on his brand. From the moment I met Mike a few years ago, I liked his authenticity; as I have seen his integrity of character over the years, my respect continues to grow; and he has instilled a deep trust, as I know he will always give his best.
I so appreciate Mike and have heard nothing but great feedback from his DEXIO session on Defining Remarkable Customer Service. Mike stripped the fluff away and delivered great value. I would strongly encourage organizational leaders to sit down with Mike and X5 Management to see how their team can improve.”

In my capacity of Chair, MacKay CEO/Executive Forums I have called upon Mike on several occasions to present to our Forums. Mike has facilitated interactive and engaging presentations on “Delivering Remarkable Service” that have resonated with our Forum members, in fact a number of our members have requested X5 Management’s professional consulting services to help support their business with the improvement of Customer Service. I would not hesitate to recommend Mike and the X5 team to any of my professional connections who may benefit from their services.”

The one thing he held in the highest of importance was his relationships with fellow professionals and the pride he took in always delivering exactly what he said he would do. I am truly honoured that I had Mike at my side, and I can now testify that he is more than a man of his word. He will always deliver more than his amazing track record has already proven.”

Lawrence Wong, President South Edmonton Business Association 2013-2014


“I would like to thank Mike Mack for the recent seminar that he conducted for members of the South Edmonton Business Association. The seminar was called “Networking for Keeps” and not only was it educational, it was inspiring. There were over 70 members in attendance and the feedback that I received was phenomenal. I have personally attended many seminars and workshops but very few were as dynamic, entertaining and engaging as the one that Mike put on. On behalf of The South Edmonton Business Association, thank you once again to Mike Mack and the X5 Management team.”

Arnold McLaughlin, Commercial Realtor, MacDonald Realty Ltd.

“During my many years I have had the opportunity, and the priviledge, of being in audience of some rather dynamic speakers who shared some great messages. Their ways of presenting were their greatest assets. Some of these speakers, just to name a few, were Ziglar. Nightengale, Dr. Hans Selye, Brian Tracey, and many more.When I watch and listen to Mike Mack make a presentation my reaction is “WOW”. I feel he would not have to take a “back seat” to any of the others that have gone before him. The timbre of his voice, his command of the language, his presentation of same, the message, his humour, and attached to the humour, his timing, all these things make him, in my opinion, a very dynamic speaker.

As a former active Toastmaster one comes to appreciate the smoothness of the flow of words, and, as in many cases with others, without the distracting hesitations in those presentations. When I was involved with Toastmasters, over a period many years, once again I had exposure to some very accomplished speakers. The club, in which I was a member, The Keystone Club, in Winnipeg, had no less that two past International Directors as part of its’ membership. Both of them knew how to present, did it well on a consistant basis, and more importantly, encouraged a high level of performance from the membership. As a result we heard a lot of great presentations over the years.

It’s a given that Mike Mack is in this elevated group of presenters. At a recent function he was approached by one of the member of his audience who suggested he was a Toastmaster, and Mike confirmed he was. To which the questioner said “I knew it, based on how you handled your topic and the fashion in which you gave it to us”.

As you already know from the foregoing I am a strong advocate of Mike, and his capabilities, and look forward to a long and continued association with him in the coming years.”

Nicole Shurko, CFP, FMA, Ch.P Strategic Wealth, Kyland Investment Management Inc

Ray Dam, Owner, Precision Building Maintenance

I was employed as a sales rep for a company that sold industrial supplies. They hired Mike Mack, of X5 Management Inc., as a consultant to help our team increase our sales. I had met with Mike once a week to strategize how I may maximize my potential and my territory. Through Mike’s coaching in goal setting, time management skills, organization, and positive mental attitude, I had an instant measurable increase in my monthly sales numbers. I consistently outperformed last year’s figures and usually had the highest percentage of increase, for my territory, over my colleagues. I achieved all my goals and most often exceeded them.

I have since started my own business, but continued to apply Mike’s techniques and ideas. My company is very successful and I attribute that to Mike Mack and X5 Management Inc. Mike has been a great coach and mentor to me. He has helped me find confidence in me that I never thought was possible.

Mike was able to communicate on a level that was both enjoyed and understood by his audience.

Personable, polite, plausible delivering an important and memorable message. Everyone agreed the time flew by and would readily agree to a return visit.

Mike is the consummate communicator. His straightforward, no nonsense style is a refreshing change in doing business. Working with Mike produced great results, his business acumen and leadership skills are well honed, but perhaps even more success critical is his enthusiasm and commitment.
