Michala Black (Mikki) grew up in the business world and kept herself fit by climbing the corporate ladder. She’s got bags of real world experience and umpteen letters after her name - but that’s not what excites her.
After many years of working with senior managers, it became evident that in order to make changes in the organisation, it is first imperative to make changes in yourself.
Mikki’s mantra can be summed up in 3 words; ‘relationships’, ‘relationships’ and ‘relationships’. Although it sounds simple enough, anyone who has ever managed people will know that it’s this pink fluffy soft stuff that is really hard!
Mikki’s job is to make it easy. She delivers corporate workshops on keeping leadership human, cultural reorganisation, positivity, mindfulness and wellbeing. Her passion for making a difference has brought her into education, and she now also runs workshops on character and wellbeing for teachers and young people.
It’s been a massive year for Mikki – she finally made a start on her PhD (she doesn’t want Andy C. to be the only Doctor in the house!), presented several successful school gigs, was invited to Buckingham Palace, spoke at the Festival of Education at Wellington College and hogged the Radio 4 airways appearing in Ramblings with Claire Balding and then again on Gardeners Question Time. Quite frankly we’re fed up with her name-dropping and banging on about media coverage and have banned all swanking in 2018!
