Simon Davies, Managing Director – Roodee Web Design
“I’ve been very lucky to have worked with a few great Managers throughout my career which has prompted me to write this recommendation for Michael. During my time at Yellow Pages I was promoted to Account Executive and Michael was my Manager in this team. The jump from Field Sales Executive to Account Manager was a big one, and the job required a whole host of more in depth skills to be able to deal with the higher level client base. At the time it was at the very least daunting, but Michael’s skills enabled me to learn so very much. He pushed me hard and his Management skills meant that I learnt on the job and in some ways in at the deep end – however, that said, he was there throughout to encourage me, mentor me and actually inspire me.
I met with Michael again recently and on reflection I realise that his role back then has helped to make me the successful sales person I am today. It’s not often we are lucky in life to be influenced and work with talented business people, but Michael is one of those people. His straight forward and creative style of Managing is unique and if ever someone completely understands people, their different personalities and what makes them tick, Michael is that person.”
Julie White, National Sales Manager – Wyboston Lakes
“Michael, thank you for the excellent quality of work that you achieved during the two days coaching. I have had very positive feedback from both First & Second Line Managers & I am convinced that your contribution was a very good example of best practice. I am very pleased that my managers were fortunate enough to experience it.”
Regional Sales Manager ~ Yell Group
