I have worked closely with Mike on two cases.
One was distressed, and one was going through a period of rapid growth

Mike develops an extremely good knowledge of a business very quickly and is therefore able to identify the areas that are causing problems, and drive the necessary changes to correct these problems

Mike is particularly good at getting people on board with the change that needs to take place.

Mike is highly motivated, dynamic and hard working. He is inspirational and I very much enjoyed working with him and learning from him

I would strongly recommend Mike for SME businesses that are facing challenges (negative and positive) and require material change operationally, financial and strategic
