“An engaging facilitator connects people, concepts and ideas and makes learning fun.”

“Whether I am working with business leaders, staff at the coal-face, people with disabilities or school students…

I harness the creativity, knowledge and energy of the participants and work to their strengths.

I get great satisfaction from designing and delivering workshops and learning programs that are transformative.”

My approach to facilitation

  • Engage


    Participants engage with key ideas when they’re entertained and have an opportunity to apply their knowledge and expertise.

  • Connect


    People are in the room together for a reason.

  • Create


    Learning is enhanced when the right-brain is engaged.

  • Energise


    Fun is fuel.

  • Experience


    Behaviour and skills can’t be learned properly from a book. Actors rehearse, athletes train, musicians practice. Let’s make it an experience

  • Learn


    Facilitators don’t teach. Participants learn.

Working with Mike:

  • image description step 1

    Discuss with me

    I’ll start with the ‘why’ and ask what learning and community-building outcomes you want for your group and the context of the project. We’ll also talk through the logistics of who, what, where & when and I’ll provide you with a quote.

    Program design

    Once we’ve discussed the needs of your organisation and the participants I will move to the ‘how’. If needed, I can collaborate with you to design the program and find fresh ways to deliver material that you’ve already developed. I will then present you with a program design for your feedback.

    Delivery: Energised

    Positive, enthusiastic and passionate facilitators have the biggest impact. I will only take on projects where I believe in the value of the material I’m working with.

Working with Mike was a pleasure. He truly takes the time to get to know the audience and to deeply understand the needs of the client. This professionalism and commitment to excellence was something that resonated with our brand. Mike was able to successfully connect with our diverse group of people and make the program relevant for them. I would recommend Mike to any organisation seeking an energetic, motivated and engaging presenter”
