INSPIRATIONAL speaker Michael Crossland has a thousand reasons to smile - the latest is that he'll be behind the wheel of a Mercedes Benz.
Michael is about to set out on a motivational speaking tour throughout regional NSW sponsored by Mercedes-Benz Coffs Coast.
The Smile with Mike Tour will see him travel more than 3,000 kilometres in the merc.
He is set to visit 16 events in 21 days with speaking gigs in Dubbo, Young, Tamworth and Gunnedah, as well as many coastal towns between Coffs Harbour and Sydney.
"I am looking forward to making a difference to many people's lives along my tour," Michael said.
"It's opportunities like this tour, which make it possible for me to touch the hearts of many new people and inspire each and everyone of them to reach for their dreams and that anything is possible.
"I can't thank the local sponsors enough for their untiring support, they include Todd Blewitt at Mercedes-Benz Coffs Coast, Gary Evans from Fuji Xerox and Sam Wardman from CornerPost Marketing.
On the Smile with Mike Tour, Michael will speak to: The Canterbury Bulldogs NRL team, the Enterprise & Training Company, a pharmaceutical company, regional Chamber of Commerces, high schools and universities, registered clubs and services organisations and the NSW Ambulance service.
