"Mikey Smith is not only a pleasure to be around and work with when providing tailored training for a business, but also when developing new concepts, rolling out fresh ideas and producing live events. Mikey provides you with the skills, techniques and tips to deliver what’s needed but also supports your freedom to add personalised sections or ideas that you want to incorporate or feel would be well received. From initial training for our first internal podcast, which is now our highest engaged media type, to helping develop our first ever live episode with feedback from our CEO as “brilliant” Mikey is always professional but is approachable, motivated and honest which makes him a fantastic man to have in your team!"
