About Mike

It’s a kind of ‘rags-to riches’ story. I was working a very unfulfilling job having graduated from university and looking for more rewarding work. I did a work placement with Strategic Resource through a development course and decided to put my best effort in. Obviously I made a good impression, because they invited me back a few years later once things started expanding!
Working as a market analyst, sourcing and presenting information on countries, industries and companies around the world. I worked on market analysis and forecasting in pretty much every area you can imagine (everything from passenger rail, to soft drinks) with the occasional essay on interesting market trends to spice things up.
I always enjoy finding out how things work, particularly behind the scenes. If something sticks out as being unusual there will be a reason for it, and finding that reason is always a challenge! Working with Strategic Resource really lets me dig down into the root causes of why an organization is running the way it is.
Atari Inc. in the year 1982. The western games market is on the verge of meltdown, a nation-wide treasure hunt for a jewel-encrusted sword is organized, and employees roam the corridors cracking whips. It would be a real challenge to find a more interesting client!
I ask people questions, then go away and write down what they said so that the people they work for know how everything is going. Then I check the spelling, because spelling is important kids.
A focus on profit to the detriment of all else doesn’t tend to work well for anyone. Taking into account the wider impact of what we do, and seeing ourselves as part of an interconnected community in which actions have consequences, would improve things for everyone.
The loudest in the room is not necessarily the most competent.
