Keynoting at Tiger Brands Leadership Conference

Thanks for visiting my site. If we’ve never met, I’m the founder and CEO of Cerebra, a company that specialises in social media and social business consulting, education and implementation for corporate brands. In 2013 WPP acquired a majority stake in Cerebra.

I use this site to share ideas, projects and learnings, and also to hear from interesting people like you.

In 2014 I published #BrandSchizo – business book designed to help brands navigate the opportunities and challenges of the social era of business. If you’re interested in finding out more about my talks and presentations this is the place. If you saw me speak and would like to leave a testimonial I’d appreciate your feedback.

When I’m not working, I’m golfing, drumming, fishing, running, cycling, swimming or spending time with family and friends.

Get in touch with me here.

What Clients Say...

I have had the privilege of listening to Mike speak on two occassions in the last two years. He was by far one of the best speakers at both events. Mike has the full package – he is intelligent, witty, insightful, energetic and colloquial – a rare combination. I look forward to hearing Mike speak again in the near future.

I saw Mike speak at Workshop @ IMC CPT 2012 & Ecommerce Conference JHB 2013.

I have had the distinct privilege of sharing a stage with Mike on many occasions.

What sets Mike apart is his ability to package content so perfectly that not only do you enjoy listening to him, but you remember what he said months later.

He is smart, funny, handsome, likes long walks on the beach…

I saw Mike speak at Multiple.

Mike is irritatingly good at public speaking. Irritating because he has an uncanny ability to read the audience and pitch the content and tone at exactly the right level. Irritating because he delivers profound insights in a common-sense manner, and because his wry sense of humour makes each presentation more like a chat with a mate than a lecture.

I saw Mike speak at IMC Conference, Johannesburg 2013.
