Since 1993, RUSSER Communications has been transforming the lives of over 100,000 business people in North America, Australia, New Zealand and Europe. Its primary operating principle is that enduring positive change of behavior and resulting outcomes can only occur when the underlying cause of fears, limiting beliefs and disempowering habits is addressed and mitigated through a proven and repeatable protocol. Michael Russer and Jacqueline Lopez are the co-leaders of all PRESENCE Protocol workshops.

Michael Russer is the CEO of RUSSER Communication. An international speaker for over 20 years he is also a TEDx alum, author, sales performance coach, business education developer, thought-leader in transformational pedagogies and former programmer and systems analyst. As an ongoing survivor of two forms of cancer, he and Ms. Lopez have pioneered the use of Presence to help cancer survivors and their partners address the unique challenges they have with existential anxiety and cancer’s impact to their relationship. In addition, they have incorporated the PRESENCE Protocol into a unique three-day transformational workshop offered in cities around the world for technology workers surrounding their committed relationships.

Jacqueline Lopez is the President of RUSSER Communication. She is a native of Brazil and Paraguay that gives her a unique cultural perspective to her work. Fluent in English, Spanish and Portuguese, she is also a Certified Public Accountant, professional speaker, author, former radio host, CEO of a Web Development firm and TEDx organizer.
