Michael successfully overcame their trepidation at studying and provided the tools and techniques to fit up to 10 hours of academic study into their already busy lives. He has been universally praised and I would add my commendation to his suitability in providing learner support.’ Stephen Willson; Client Director, Centre for Leadership and Management Practice, Birmingham City Business School
