I am a fully certified CTI (Coaching Training Institute) professional executive and leadership coach. I offer coaching services on a flexible basis i.e. an individual session as required 'commitment-free' or on an ongoing regular basis. I have a wealth of experience at a senior leadership …
I am a modern, emotionally intelligent, leader, with excellent communication skills and the proven ability to create a strong, loyal, following, as well as truly diverse and high performing teams.
I am a native British English speaker but I can also speak Spanish at Level B2 - so don't let the language or location get in your way!
I have a unique combination of leadership, industry, coaching and transformational experience. My passion is helping organisations, and individuals, shape their future.
In a career spanning over 30 years, I have worked for a number of major brands, both as a permanant member of staff and as a freelance advisor. I have a broad range of sector experience that includes Retail Banking, Financial Services, Insurance, Manufacturing, Telecoms and Government. My most recent engagements have been as Chief Information Officer (CIO) within the Lloyds Insurance Market and at a major, international, high street bank.
My broad experience has given me unique insight into the future challenges leaders face. I truly believe that one of the most difficult things that leaders need to do is to articulate a clear vision, collaboratively build a strategic plan to achieve that vision whilst, most importantly, building a strong and passionate following that brings people with them.
Some examples of things I can help you with:
* Designing, building and implementing a communication strategy (for within your team and also outwardly within the organisation)
* Public speaking
* Designing and building the appropriate organisational structure
* Creating following (within the team and outwardly within the organisation)
* Improving the external opinion of you and your team
* Creating the foundational blocks upon which to develop a high performing team
* Establishing the balance between organic team growth and recruiting externally
* Maximising team diversity
* Updating your CV and preparing for the difficult questions at interview

Michael is a mature technological leader with plenty of practical wisdom. I particularly enjoyed his insights into how to develop political and softer skills and become a better engineering leader. I can highly recommend him to anyone who wants to level up as a leader in a corporate setting.

Michael was a great find. An industry veteran who's a qualified coach, he's helped me change my perspective and be introspective about my gaps and how I need to fill them. Highly recommend Michael to anyone wanting the insight of an accomplished CIO en route to their new career heights.
We will send you a quick email if Michael has new open spots for mentorship, and only in that case!
