I first started working with Mike in June 2017 when he was COO of GWM. We worked together on the integration of our learning proposition into his business. From the outset of discussions, we were able to build rapport quickly and together identified the key deliverables in respect to our project. Mike is a highly focused individual with strong leader characteristics. He take a pragmatic view on things, seeks solutions that benefit both parties and is commercially astute in his decision making. If I was to summarise his character through our dealings I would say that Mike is a confident leader with integrity, he was always true to his word and approaches everything with an abundance of energy. I would recommend Mike to anyone as a trusted business ally.
