Mike's career has taken him to over 50 countries working with government ministers and departments, boards, senior management and line staff. After graduating with degrees in Arts and Law, and being admitted to the NSW Supreme Court and High Court of Australia, Mike abandoned legal practice to work in industry.
His diverse experiences include running an African charity, international energy marketing, motivating long term unemployed to return to work, general management in defence electronics, consulting in global banking, CEO of professional associations and a multi-award winning environmental start up. All of these have provided the raw material for Mike’s expertise in working with people.
Mike conducts master classes in communication and change.
Mike lives with his wife Caren and a steady stream of family and friends, who arrive (so they say) to share in the creative spirit but more likely to enjoy the climate and ambiance of Mike’s cooking and the story telling.
