Michael Shanks describes himself as “a Catholic husband, father, entrepreneur, and public speaker.” To Michael, it means living his faith out in the world.

Michael’s company has been named “the number one company you need to know in Arizona,” and has been honored with many marketing/design industry awards.
Smart people at some of the world’s most respected companies and institutions trust Shanks DMG. He maintains a niche business developing brands and directing marketing campaigns for notable clients such as Intel, Sony, NFL, Navy, Wells Fargo, Chevy among others, and he has teamed with individuals such as “Rudy” Ruettiger, Garth Brooks and NFL Hall-of-Famer Ronnie Lott on a full spectrum of projects. 

In his dynamic and engaging presentations, Michael delivers a message designed for all Catholics. He instructs, informs and inspires on such topics as chasing your dreams, living the faith in our world, being a man of principle, doing exceptional work, living happily, practicing sexual abstinence before marriage, realizing the importance of great friends, and most importantly, celebrating the responsibilities and rewards of being a loving father, a devoted husband and a dedicated servant of God...quite possibly all in one talk, really. He’ll make you think. If you’re a bit on the sensitive side, he might make you cry.  He’ll definitely make you laugh, and leave you personally motivated and profoundly moved. He speaks from his own experience and life lessons:
“Courage is not just the extraordinary acts of adventurers and visionaries, in a world where relationships, jobs, and lives can change in an instant, having courage is real, meaningful and necessary." He speaks from his own experience and life lessons. Early in his professional career, Michael established a reputation for courage in business by intentionally undressing while presenting to more than 70 people from a major international corporation. Some might call that gutsy, daring, or crazy. For Michael, there is no other way. 

Michael currently resides in Paradise Valley with his five children and wife of 20 years.

"You could not have given a more awesome presentation this morning!  Your sharing your gifts, vision, and blessings were just what God intended that I hear and am certain were a blessing to many others in attendance, if not all. Your generosity toward the close was the pimento of the olive.  Thank you very much for my t-shirt." - Donna Marie

"Hi Michael  – just want to THANK YOU again for choosing me for the kit this morning.  I could not talk fast enough to my boss/co-workers about your presentation.  REALLY hit home.  I brought my kit into work and my Catholic co-workers can’t wait until you have it available to purchase.  What a WONDERFUL/INPSIRING morning it was.  May God Bless You and keep up your fantastic work!!" - Sandi
