The Working Remotely online session that Michelle delivered at York Business Week was so great. It was my highlight of the week and gave me such a boost personally and professionally. I’ve put Zoom coffee catch ups in the team’s diary following this, and we had a virtual lunch break together last week. I really can’t thank you enough; those of us who attended were quite evangelical about making positive changes together after that session.”

Eleanor Bryson, Marketing Manager, Make It York, November 2020.

On reflection, I’d probably attended several of Michelle’s webinars before realising that she worked in the York area. In anticipation of my own relocation to York, I first contacted her, before meeting her in person at the York Business Show 2018. I’ve since learned that, in addition to running her own business, Michelle is the current Chair of York Professionals, and has been instrumental in organising daily People Panel Zoom calls for York business leaders, members of the City of York Council, and other professionals during the COVID-19 Pandemic. There are not many people I’ve met who are quite as enthusiastic as Michelle. In all of my dealings with her, I’ve found Michelle to be extremely generous, considerate, positive, personable, sincere, fun, and thoughtful. In my opinion, Michelle is a real asset to the York community, and have no doubt that her selfless-commitment, boundless energy, and authenticity will be remembered long after the last COVID-19 patient leaves York District Hospital. I regret that I don’t yet know the staff at Pro-Development, but do know that Michelle cares passionately about her staff, and is an outstanding role model to lead York Professionals.”

Richard Gadd, Developing Business Excellence, April 2020.

In the difficult Covid-19 times, Michelle has started to pivot her business and provide a free training online via conference calls. She covered how to manage teams remotely and the information and timing was perfect. She is an expert in people management and engagement. Very much appreciated at these difficult times.”

Caroline Hale, Hale Portfolio Ltd, April 2020

Michelle is truly an inspiration for me in these challenging times. I have loved listening to this again today and feel so much more prepared to support our managers and leaders.”
