Cryss Mennaceur, HR Manager | Young Minds

I have employed Mike both as a speaker and a trainer on a number of occassions since 2001. No matter what demands I place on him he has always delivered par excellence. He has that rare ability to be able to put across complex concepts in a way that is accessible and engages staff at all levels. Always personable, never ruffled - it is a very great pleasure to recommend Mike.

Andy Thorn, EMEA Key Account & Inncom Business Channel Leader | Honeywell

Mike received the best feedback scores of anyone we have ever used and our teams still talk about the first time he presented at one of our conferences. We will use Mike again and I thoroughly recommend him.
