Michael Brown runs his own training consultancy, specializing in building leadership, team development and negotiation skills. He has been working with complex international organizations for nearly 20 years, and over that time he has met nearly 10,000 people in organisations of all shapes and sizes. This has given him an in-depth personal insight into their hopes, fears and challenges as they try to keep ahead in a rapidly evolving and increasingly dysfunctional workplace.
Before joining the training industry he gained practical experience of managing people and developing small businesses from a 14-year career at Whitbread in logistics, sales and marketing.
He was educated at Eton College and Balliol College, Oxford, where he was an organ scholar.
