Mike is passionate about coaching and the development of people. That passion translates directly to results; and Mike has helped me grow my personal leadership skills over the last 12 months beyond my expectations. He has ignited further passion within me for personal development. Mike is generous with his time; and has gone over and above his responsibilities to support me during my growth.

Mike has been an integral part of our Victorian delivery team for over 8 years. Mike is also the Victorian representative on our international (Aus and NZ) Delivery Quality Team.
His passion for people development is appreciated by me, by LMA and by all the Participants that he leads through personal transformation processes – whether these be related to leadership, management, personal productivity and performance or sales.
What I love and respect most about Mike is his willingness to go above and beyond what is required to achieve the desired outcome for us and for his Participants – it is truly inspiring to see someone lead so well from the heart first, then the head.
As a business and as a Manager it’s such a blessing to have someone with Mikes experience, passion and commitment working with us.

It is seldom in this life that you meet people that you can truly call inspirational.
People that inspire you to the point of actually transforming yourself into a better person.
Some times it is through work, other times a sporting club, and sometimes it’s even in your own family.
In this case, it was through education.
Over the past 13 months, you have become one of only a handful of people that have had a significant transformational impact on my life.
You now sit alongside my father, a best mate, an old boss and a current boss.
Through your honesty, inspirational leadership, and natural ability to seek out the best in students, I now have a set of life skills that have changed the way I interact with all people. You have helped me at work, at home and in pretty much any situation where I interact with people …. and where I don’t!
More than anything, I have a particular affection for passionate people …. and it is your passion that has inspired me more than any of your words.
And it was with a shared passion that we parted ways, at the end of this course.
This book has given me much enjoyment, and I’m sure this copy will do the same for you.
I wish you all the best, for now, and into the future.
