Our client was looking for a speaker to both entertain and engage their staff as part of a broad cultural change program. We used a variety of speakers over a number of months and our client agreed Michael was the most entertaining and interesting of them all. Michael's real difference is his ability to seamlessly mix his incredible life story with some practical and informative insights into his career as one of Australia's most successful retailers.
