Over the last two and a half years, Mike's involvement has had a significant impact on our approach to project management.  The staff he trained are now delivering 90% of projects to time and budget (previously below 50%). Senior staff have taken their sponsor role more seriously and are having regular meetings with project staff on progress.

I have employed Mike both as a speaker and a trainer on a number of occasions since 2001. No matter what demands I place on him he has always delivered par excellence. He has that rare ability to be able to put across complex concepts in a way that is accessible and engages staff at all levels. Always personable, never ruffled - it is a very great pleasure to recommend Mike.
