“Mike has been a true partner for me in both understanding some of my weaknesses in my approach/positioning and then working on them in specific business situations. He has been fundamental to helping me navigate a promotion to a senior leadership role and navigating the politics/specific individuals that would block or influence this.

He tested and helped me correct my approaches to these situations and through this, it is evident that I have improved my approaches and overall capability.

Thanks Mike, I look forward to work with you on the upcoming challenges.”

Mike has been mentoring me during the businesses period of scaling up and taking on more long-term contracts. This has led to having to strategise about business development in different ways and has included bring on more associates into the business. 

With just the right amount of probingly open questions and active listening, Mikes expert guidance has enabled me to clear the fog of what are sometimes my jumbled thoughts and make sense of my ideas.  Since working with Mike, my business growth has expanded at least 60%. This has enabled me the freedom to develop the business, contract more suppliers, clearly articulate what I need from my suppliers and improve my service offering.

I would definitely recommend Mike if you are ambitious about your business growth and need a little bit of a helping hand to make your thoughts a reality.”
