Who I am

Cad trainer

When I’m invited to speak to groups, it’s usually for an AutoCAD tips and trick session on the current release that ranges anywhere from one to four hours. These sessions I refer to as my “AutoCAD Toolbelt” sessions during which I (hopefully) give the attendees the AutoCAD tools they need to get the job done QBSF*.

If you have an event where you need high energy, AutoCAD “info-tainment”, I’m here when you need me.

God and family are first. Every perfect gift comes from above, and the Lord has abundantly blessed my family and me.

Since moving to Kentucky from California in 1993, by His grace, He has continued to grow my business. I am very thankful to those of you who have made it possible.

Married to my lovely bride, Donna, since 1986, she has no equal. Only by the grace of God could I have found a woman who would accept and adapt to my travel schedule, run a 5-acre homestead with two horses, and still manage her own company, Donna’s Equine Care.

In June of 2014, our son, Joshua, (www.notjoshbeall.com) graduated from the Art Institute of Ohio with a Bachelor of Science in Digital Filmmaking and Video Production (YESSSS!) Within 6 weeks of graduation, he had secured a salaried position with Axxis, Inc. (www.axxisinc.com), an event technology company in Louisville.

I just wanted to tell you that our 2 training days were the best training days I have spent in my 23 years here!

Cummins Engines, Inc.

AutoCAD 2012 Update seminar

If you’ve experienced a training session with Michael, you know how invaluable his lessons are. If not, his books are the next best thing! Easy-to-follow, easy-to-use and not dumbed down in a way that makes you feel like you aren’t ‘getting’ it. I love Michael’s style and love his books! A definite ‘must -have’ for either the novice or veteran CAD user.”

Michael, Thank you so much for your help! You are a lifesaver for Designers in Dealerships! You ROCK, Michael Beall!

Thank you, Thank you, Thank you a million times over!

Thank you, sir … I must say that you are the best teacher of AutoCAD I have ever had. Had I had you in that class during college, it would have been so-o-o-o different.

I’ve never enjoyed any kind of training as much as I’ve enjoyed the two sessions I’ve now shared with you. You just make everything so much fun!

It’s wonderful to be trained by someone who understands what a furniture dealer designer does on a daily basis.

You are the Jimi Hendrix of AutoCAD!!!

AutoCAD Seminar Feedback

I learned more in the first 3 hours with you, than I did in 3 days at our previous AutoCAD training.

Michael pinpointed the usual struggles of using AutoCAD in a furniture dealership & had solutions to our problems!

Best AutoCAD and CAP training I have ever had. You make it fun and interesting. Wish I had this five years ago!
