Corporate and Charity Events
Mike can put together a bespoke collection of stories that reflect the theme of a training day or other event. Last year he was commissioned by ‘Small Steps Big Changes’, to help them with their Nottingham based training event:
“Small Steps Big Changes is part of a larger national programme and brings into Nottingham a significant investment as well as a new approach to working with children and families from pregnancy until their fourth birthday. As you know, by working with all children in our selected areas to improve nutrition, language and communication, and social and emotional development and in doing so help our children to achieve more in life.
Our event was themed around these outcome areas and it was great for all of our delegates to hear your hand crafted stories reflecting each of these areas.
Feedback throughout the night and the following day has been generous and gushing in relation to your wonderful tales. We’re really pleased that you were able to take a brief and weave some magic around it for us. We hope that you continue to be a friend of the programme as things move forwards. With language and communication being central to what we’d like to achieve we’ll certainly keep you in mind for future events.”

Expert Presentation Skills Workshop with Fisher Scientific
After being approached by a number of audience members from the business world, Mike began to run training sessions for those who wanted to improve their communication skills in the workplace. As the number of requests grew, Mike founded the company Be Heard, with fellow storyteller Tim Ralphs. Be Heard offers expert training in all aspects of presentation skills, with a special focus on utilising the power of narrative to get one's message across clearly.
