Michael is very helpful in motivating and encouraging me to push forward. His delivery is very calming and he has the ability to motivate me. Although, it was going to take hard work, he always helps me not to become overwhelmed and reminds me that I am more than capable of of achieving my goals.

Amber Sorrell

Head of Diversity & Inclusion at the Department of Health & Social Care

I have always felt I could start my own businesses and had a few ideas, but had no idea where to start and suffered from self limiting beliefs. Michael was fantastic! The pre session work really encouraged me to focus my thoughts and ambitions. The sessions were structured perfectly, ensuring all my questions were answered and Michael was happy to clarify anything I didn't understand. He encouraged me to come up with my own ideas, but also really encouraged me to belief in myself and my own ability to achieve my dream.
