As an economist, Michael is an accredited SROI practitioner and trainer in multiple approaches to measuring value for money. He has trained, and consulted with, a wide variety of organisations to help them measure their social, economic and environmental impact.
As an organisational development practitioner, he has both developed and delivered tools (Happiness at Work survey) and processes (Well-Supplied) to bring wellbeing into the heart of business conversations and decision-making as well as taking it into government policy.
Michael has brought an understanding and use of wellbeing in decision making into organisations as diverse as the UK National Health Service (NHS), Woolworths and Timberland.
The research underpinning the tools and processes he has co-created draw on the work of the Nobel economics prize winner, Elinor Ostrom, and the growing field of study, positive psychology.
