Prior to consulting, Mr. Collins was Vice President and General Manager of two divisions of Columbia Machine in Vancouver, Washington. He has more than 35 years of experience in Manufacturing.
Mr. Collins is a frequent speaker on manufacturing issues. His vast experience gives him a wealth of knowledge and small business experiences to share with his audiences. He delivers his message with a mix of practical business methods and the "street smarts"that comes from having "done it." He is also a writer for many industrial trade journals. With his extensive experience, Collins customizes his presentations to address specific industries and the subjects shown under keynote speech subjects.
Michael Collins believes that manufacturing built this country and it cannot be allowed to decline. He has committed himself to devoting the rest of his working years to helping SMMs and to make the issue of a declining manufacturing base more public. He strongly believes that saving American manufacturing is the key to preventing the decline of living standards for the middle class.
"Collins' energetic speaking style, use of real-life experiences, and ability to engage manufacturing leaders in meaningful dialogue is truly effective. When people leave Collins' sessions they are compelled to make changes in their organizations."

Thus, he can speak with authority about creating and making products and getting them through sales distribution channels to end-users."
