Wolfgang M. Neumann, Area President - Hilton Hotels UK & Ireland

Michael is an inspiration. He has a thoroughly positive outlook for somebody facing such adversities.

Sir Richard Branson, Chairman - Virgin Group

He speaks with great eloquence and inspires the listeners to want to do more with their lives rather than just sit there and listen to a great adventure. He developed a real "can do" attitude in many of his listeners.
