Michael gives thoughtful, gripping lectures about his ordeal as a hostage of Somali pirates. He can talk about the history of pirates and colonialism, the politics of piracy, and the role of Islam in Somalia as well as on the Barbary Coast. He can also talk about the cognitive skills needed to change to your approach toward any problem — real human freedom, as articulated by Stoics, Christians, and Buddhists.

Hearing him talk was like listening to a short story unfold.
An eye-opening experience for West Point cadets ... The Combating Terrorism Center at West Point is incredibly appreciative to Mr. Moore, who was a pleasure to host, for his willingness to share his important insights with the future leaders of the U.S. military.
His visit to the Sorbonne was very inspiring, something that I know will stay with the students as they embark on their journalism careers.
Michael was extremely forthcoming, articulate, self-deprecating and unabashedly honest. He was a delight to work with, and I doubt that many in the audience will forget that evening — or Michael — for a long time to come.
Mike exudes the calm demeanor of a man who has been through so much; a man who was broken into pieces, and who found a beautiful, spiritual way to pick up those pieces and become whole again.
Michael is represented by the Harper Collins Speakers Bureau
