Mike's Training Expertise

36 Years of Experience



Throughout my career I have managed and led teams that have achieved exceptional results. My management and leadership experience gave me the opportunity to try out and learn from new and innovative ideas.

Through regular communication, coaching and empowerment every individual has the potential to be inspired and become a leader.

I have managed small teams working very close by to a large remote team of 300 individuals working in ten distant locations. I have also experienced managing a multi-national team of highly skilled technical people, from 11 different countries and cultures. Teams are different but they all consist of individuals. Recognising this fact is extremely important. Spending time with each team member and through understanding them and encouraging them to develop themselves they begin to set their own goals greatly increasing the chances of team success.

In addition to be involved in major corporate programmes I have facilitated many events for individuals with leadership responsibilities at all levels from senior management to first line supervisors. Topics include coaching, communication, delegation, empowerment, facilitation, inspiring, leading, motivation and team working.

Personal Development


More than 20 years experience in managing and developing individuals of all ages from school leavers to those in retirement. We all have something we can develop. We can make ourselves better, learn new skills and be more marketable. Working with the long term unemployed and seeing them develop and achieve sustainable long term employment has been as equally rewarding for me as seeing my own team members develop and progress up through an organisation at great pace. What is important is that everyone has the opportunity to grow and develop.

All aspects of personal development are covered in Mike’s events from lack of confidence and belief in ones own ability through to having clear long term goals and aspirations. Topics include, self appraisal, coaching, organisation and time management, communication skills, presentation skills, setting objectives, networking and self marketing.
