Michael holds complete belief in the potential of people, and he is committed to influencing lasting transformation in every person he works with, every company that becomes his client, and to the ultimate contribution of making the world a better place.
In a recent move, and due to the current downturn in global business, Michael has also launched his Business Rebuild & Recovery Program (REBUILD); leveraging on his extensive expertise in managing and recovering troubled projects and companies around the world, REBUILD enables failing companies to quickly recover, rebuild, and prosper again, through a systematic and proven approach which combines Project Management best practices and Business Recovery practices.
Working with expert affiliate consultants, the REBUILD program identifies alternate ways to produce the same (or better) products or services, cheaper and faster; the best ways to plan for and respond to risks and threats; ways to get a company’s finances back on track and stable; how to establish effective virtual teams, and virtually communicate with employees and customers; and how to build a Business Continuity Plan to be well prepared beyond this current crisis.
In his private time Michael loves to coach soccer, scuba diving, enjoy good conversations with friends, and continuously learn and grow.
