Working with Mike has yielded excellent results. His planned and clearly defined objective setting allowed us to quantify the areas we needed to work on with our driver, and for the driver to understand where he needed to change his behavioural strategy to get the best from his car and team.

I would recommend every young driver to spend some time with Mike!”

“Before he came to us I wasn't sure if it would be worth it but the workshop Mike gave to our team was well measured, well prepared and correctly focussed on how to develop our key staff." SR
