Feedback
Mike has an ability to captivate his audience with his unique story of guts, sheer determination and courage. It’s a testament to his strength of character. Founder of Limbs 4 Life Australia

Mike presented to our distribution team on the back of a full day. He really engaged the team and took them out of their everyday lives to hear about his incredible story, but more importantly, learn from it. Mike was extremely engaging and funny but really made us all reflect on what matters, how to handle change and take on new challenges. I would definitely recommend mike to any business, company or group to take people out of the day to day role and reflect on life and what you can achieve if you put your mind and body into it.
