About Mike

Hello – here’s a bit about me.

I have worked in a variety of digital and training roles where the need for creativity, resilience and humour have been an essential skill to success.

These are some of the essential qualities for surviving the modern workplace (…and hopefully for writing an interesting blog.)

I’ve also ridden the career roller-coaster through 3 major redundancies, 2 acquisitions and done the hiring, restructuring and exiting thing many times.

Through these experiences and thanks to some great training, I’ve learned a fair bit about work, training, improvement and careers.

Learning about learning

Outside of Digital, my wider interests in self-taught learning and development have taken me in some interesting directions.

These include certifying in NLP based coaching and Assistant coach work with Linda Sykes at Axiom training. Here’s a link to my ANLP profile.

Also gaining broader Learning & Development qualifications with the help of these friendly organisations:

No sitting still

Away from my desk and the classroom I enjoy physical improver practices to keep nimble and stave off office attrification. Nobody wants that!

These include indoor climbing (bouldering), martial arts and more recently ‘Stiff guy yoga’ which is now a thing. I like to get outside too.

What else and next?

My current aims are to spend more time creating learning materials and helping more people succeed through career transitions, with my experience and coaching skills.

There’s also a book on it’s way in 2020…
