Meet Mike

Hi, my name is Mike Consol. I'm president of MikeConsol.com, which provides communications training in three critical areas:

My firm helps companies build their communications prowess in ways that enhance their brand, attract new talent and boost sales.

At root, I'm a journalist with a long and successful career as a reporter, editor, publisher, interviewer, writing and reporting coach, and public speaker.

I spent 17 years with American City Business Journals, the nation's largest publisher of metropolitan business journals with 40 weekly newspapers across the United States. I held a variety of key posts while at ACBJ, including:

  • Associate publisher, San Francisco Business Times
  • Publisher, East Bay Business Times
  • Writing and reporting coach, American City Business Journals
  • Vice president, bizjournals.com (the internet division of ACBJ)

I was also managing editor of the Los Angeles Business Journal, and news editor of the Pasadena Star-News.

I've interviewed hundreds of CEOs, written, edited and assigned thousands of business stories, and played emcee or moderator to an endless array of business events. All of these experiences will be put to work to serve your company in a host of ways.

Are you ready to do business? Take one of these actions:

  • Schedule a meeting with me and let's start by getting to know one another.
  • Hire me to speak at your company or next event.
  • Ask for a complimentary assessment of your team's writing and presentation skills.
