Michael built high-performing teams and led them in demanding environments during a 20 year military career, including six operational tours of duty. He is a graduate of the Army Command and Staff College.
Michael subsequently adapted his military teamwork experience and applied it in his business career, which encompassed programme management at Eurostar, helping the Afghans re-establish their football association after 25 years of war, and turning around ailing businesses as an interim managing director for a private equity partnership.
Throughout his careers, Michael has seen how rare high performing teams and good leadership are. His passion now is to enable others to experience the transformative power of both.
He delivers leadership and team development programmes in the UK and France.
Michael is a trained executive and systemic team coach and is an International Coach Federation Associate Certified Coach.
