Some feedback from our clients....
I've been working with Mike for nearly three years on a suite of leadership development programmes for new to senior Managers. Professionally, I always look forward to collaborating with Mike because of the energy, passion and experience he brings to every engagement.
Mike has a fantastic range as a facilitator - his natural sense of fun brings a lightness of touch and humour to the learning, yet he can be challenging and directive when needed.
I have been lucky enough to see him in action as a coach; he asks insightful questions to get to the heart of the issue for each person he works with. His 'super power' is his ability to understand people's self-limitations and build confidence.
Personally, I just enjoy having Mike around and hope we get to work together for many years more. It's always a pleasure.
Senior Manager, AT Kearney
Mike is a very gifted individual and an absolute pleasure to work with. He brings a unique depth of experience from his work in and outside of the NHS coupled with an unwaveringly thoughtful and constructive approach. It has been a delight to work in partnership with him in creating and delivering our bespoke leadership development programme. Mike brought a valuable innovative approach to the overall design of our Leadership Development programme. For example how we might engage with our critics, strengthen working partnerships with external stakeholders and build leadership capability focused on our key organisational challenges. The delivery team Mike lead has consistently received exceptional feedback from programme participants about the quality of facilitation. Our future leaders felt empowered and supported by Mike's engaging coaching style.
Michelle Stansfield, Head of HR, NHS Digital
Mike was my personal coach when I attended Genesis Park, the PwC talent program. Mike's personal coaching had a profound impact on my self awareness, confidence and direction as a leader. On a day-to-day basis I draw on the learnings I had from working with Mike. His contribution to my development has lead to a number of successes since.
Simon Cuthbert, Partner Assurance, PwC Australia
I worked with Mike when I transitioned from consulting back into industry. Mike is an experienced and intuitive coach who has great interpersonal skills and emotional intelligence. He was highly recommended to me and I would also highly recommend his work. A real coaching professional and one I plan to work with on a regular basis.

Mike has the perfect coaching style; a blend of experience, empathy, curiosity (and directness when required) that helped me immensely. I really enjoyed working with Mike and would not hesitate in recommending him to others
David Edwards, Chief Marketing Officer, Vistra
Mike will make you feel more empowered to take on the world. He's astute and has real depth, able to understand what you're about and where you're coming from. He combines this with an innate ability to bring an objective dimension, enabling clients to see themselves more 'holistically'. Mike provokes and stimulates, asking tough questions - in a warm, collaborative style - which was incredibly effective.
