Testimonials


“Mick is a very engaging speaker and has a unique blend of substance and dry humor that holds the attention of even very large audiences.  His practical experience as a line Executive with Procter & Gamble and Johnson & Johnson brings unique insight to his approach on the subject of Leadership Development”.

Sandy Ogg
Chief Human Resource Officer
Unilever

“What I particularly appreciate in your sessions is your ability to translate your personal experience into insights; insights that are relevant for us to use, to learn from and to live by. This experience base is rare to come by in any one individual – it’s global in reach and includes the highs and lows of working in not only in major multinationals but also with small enterprises whose mission is to improve the human condition.  So when you talk about what “global” really means, it’s a blend of theory and practice, based on an incredibly rich personal experience base. It’s credible. It’s real”.

Vivian Wang
Vice President
Johnson & Johnson

“As a business leader, your valued speaker input into both the Pacific Rim Forum in Sydney and subsequently into the APEC CEO Summit in Brunei was widely viewed as demonstrating an unusually high level of intellectual honesty and rigor. What also came through was your focus on trying to articulate the parameters of a win-win solution rather than simply postulating an ideological position. If globalization is to gain the necessary political and social legitimacy that most of us believe it should – and must for the world’s greater good – we will clearly need more credible and articulate business leaders such as yourself”.

Alan Carroll.
Executive Chairman
Pacific Rim Forum

“Your presentation on Leadership Skills at our seminar was spot on. It was inspiring and motivated executives who were themselves in the motivation business. The examples of great leaders served as good role models for the audience”.

Yeoh Siew Hoon
Education Chair
Society of Incentive & Travel Executives, Asia/Pacific University in Singapore

“In our events, Mick is invariably the guy who brings up the vital angle no one else in the conversation has raised.  He uniquely connects the deep, driving issues to the practical aspects of management and human behavior.  And he can do this in terms a group can readily embrace”.

Chris Meyer
Director
CGEY Center for Business Innovation

“Mick’s presentations are very well crafted. He delivers them with élan .. very simple language, humorous at points to keep the audience engaged and integrates materials from many sources remarkably. He is perceptive of his audience reactions and able to appropriately attend to their needs. One always looks forward to learning from Mick. He is the most outstanding speaker on the subject of Leadership and Change management”.
