WOW. That was the reaction in Denver recently at the National Speakers Association annual Influence conference when keynote speakers Mike Rayburn and Daniel Burrus took the stage to present to 1,000+ professional speaking colleagues from all over the globe both as their present selves – and as their “future holographic selves”.
With the technical wizardry from the folks at ARHT Media Inc., Mike and Dan were seen via high-quality hologram through the company’s patented Holographic Telepresence technology. As this technology literally begins to mainstage all over the globe, keynote speakers are able bring their messages to audiences in new and exciting ways – without even getting on a plane.
In a recent article by SmartMeetings.com they shared how big brands are leveraging holograms of speakers to create an added interactive dimension that can help increase engagement by 20% over past years. Another article shared how Microsoft recently took things a step further and not only had a keynote speaker present via hologram – but actually translated her message into another language.

For our team, watching Mike expertly communicate both virtually and in person was just inspiring. He is known for creating empowering “What If” experiences for his audiences. As he says, “Every major invention, accomplishment, and victory in human history began with the simple, almost childlike curiosity of a “What If…?” question.” In this case, answering the question, “What if you could present on a stage without physically being on the stage?”
Mike Rayburn challenges audiences to take what some deem impossible and ask themselves – “What if you could – how would you?” The answers they discover in the wake of his presentations are both eye-opening, and door opening. Possibilities abound when leaders invite ground-breaking speakers and evolving tools and technology to test status quo and invite reinvention and imagination to help take their teams to new and exciting levels.
Mike, our hats are off to you!
