Michael is a hacker, educator, founder and generally noisy person. He is not at all serious, qualified or professional. Ironically, he is a highly qualified and professionally decorated nonconformist who occasionally invents words to suit his bio. Having built a successful corporate career in corporate leadership corporat’ing at big corporates such as Microsoft, Westpac and Commonwealth Bank (he found it all a bit lewd, lascivious, salacious and outrageous), he now runs his own thing profiting from teaching others to be better communicators. During his time at Microsoft he spent bucket loads of cranial-capacity producing and delivering keynotes, events and media experiences with countless awesome brands; Westpac, Namco (PAC-MAN), Ralph Magazine, SBS, Foxtel and ABC are a few amongst them.
Michael has spent his entire life indulging his creative, curious and resourceful DNA. And by far, he is at his happiest when he helps others do the same.
