“I am delighted to see Michael join the ranks of the freelancer! He is an outstanding learning and development professional with an uncanny ability to stretch people and have them working outside their comfort zones. Michael also understands business and the need for learning and development to provide a return on whatever budget and time is invested. This is not always the case with freelance trainers and is one of the qualities that makes Michael unique.” Matt Somers, Owner, Matt Somers – Coaching Skills Training

Michael is a first class trainer and I and our staff will be looking to do further training courses in the future. Alan Barlow, Bike It Officer, Sustrans
