Mike Davies

My passion is in supporting and witnessing the development and growth of people, I see my role as creating an environment for people to learn, develop and achieve their potential in their careers. Being able to identify talent, develop it effectively and thus help organisations unleash their talent’s potential are my drivers.  

Mike’s Work

I work with my customers to identify ways we can support them. That could be by working with senior management on strategies, helping the organisation measure performance and potential, identifying and developing talent pathways and programmes or supporting using performance development interventions.

The ultimate success factor for anyone involved in Learning and Development in my opinion is to have developed people and organisations who go on to great success. I’ve helped support many people over twenty five years to achieve that and that gives me the excitement and reward I need.

One of the things that have come to define me in my current role is the need to look for new and interesting ways of making learning and development “stick”. I have done this by using innovative and challenging interventions that take people out of their comfort zones. In my recent article for LinkedIn: Don’t Teach Talent, I explain why traditional pedagogical methods are not the best approach particularly when working with talent pools.

How you can work with Mike

If you are looking to discover true talent in your organisation, want to unleash the true potential, can see the benefit in challenging learners to step outside their comfort zones and value innovative design and delivery, we will work well together.

Mike’s Interests

I’m a massive sports fan – but I’m particularly interested in rugby. I love to travel, and I go to overseas rugby matches whenever I can.
