He is also a highly decorated Contract Management Professional with significant international experience in Europe, Australia, Asia and North America. He gives care and commitment to all his clients. However, his path to becoming an Interview coach was an unorthodox one.
Michael’s interview coaching story started in 2011:
After the global financial crisis, I decided to emigrate from my home country, Ireland and seek work in the Oil & Gas Industry. While I had vast experience in a similar profession, I lacked the confidence I had the required skills and encountered the usual roadblocks that candidates face when applying from overseas; nobody takes you seriously.
I decided to fly to Australia for two weeks on a fact-finding mission, with a goal of securing an interview, a visa and a job offer. In hindsight, these goals seemed ambitious, however the steps I undertook prior to the trip made the difference. I went to see an Interview Coach, which consisted of two, one-hour sessions. The results from those sessions combined with the deliberate practice that I undertook changed my mindset when approaching interviews, my level of confidence and greatly improved my success rate. I returned home from Australia with two separate job offers.
I no longer feared interviews but relished the challenges.
“Before I went to see an Interview Coach, I took the process for granted and ‘hoped for the best with limited preparation’; now I approach interviewing with a mindset of being prepared, confident and assured that very few, if any, will interview to the high standards that I set.”

This revelation started my journey in acquiring interview mastery through knowledge and skill refinement with the ultimate goal of helping others. I provided this service informally for many years, to the great success of my many mentees, before I decided to set it up on a more formal and structured basis.
