Michael is one of the most insightful, personable, and generous professionals I’ve had the pleasure of working with. He is a master facilitator, drawing out both the crux of the issue at hand and the best in his participants without overtaking the conversation. He holds that rare combination of content expertise and deep respect for the wisdom and experiences of his participants. I would recommend to any organization trying to overcome their internal obstacles and do more of what matters - talk to Michael.

Stuck in a rut? Over the years I have helped professionals of all walks refocus on what they really want to do. If you think I might be able to help you realign yourself with your skills and passion. 

I was fortunate enough to receive guidance from Michael Ambjorn when in the beginning stages of building my business. Not only did Michael help to hone our mission but offered straightforward advice with specific, strategic steps for moving forward.

Michael’s guidance was elemental in building the foundation for Girl Bike Love and CycloFemme, now becoming a global non-profit in just a few short years.

As Head of Communication, I had the pleasure of working with Michael on a major internal staff event celebrating the 20th anniversary of our organisation. Michael invested a lot of work and energy in preparing for his task of engaging 120 staff representing all areas of the organisation, more than 25 different nationalities as well as different age groups. This included a pre-event at the headquarters to engage staff in the programme for the corporate day out. Michael is a champ with a microphone and he delivers important messages with passion and translate complex matters to understandable, active language. During the day of the event, he moderated and managed the programme with an exceptional level of professionalism and enthusiasm, so even the most sceptical were happy to participate in the activities. With his inclusive and authentic style he brought out the best of all staff, and ensured a memorable day. We all enjoyed working with Michael and I would recommend him for any event near you.
