Are you actively changing the world? Doing something new? Crazy even?

ABOUT

I’m on a mission to build a portfolio of cashflowingproducing businesses.

I DO THIS BY SOLVING PROBLEMS USING TECHNOLOGY.

I BELIEVE THAT BORING IS BEAUTIFUL SO I BUILD SYSTEMS AND TEAMS THAT ENDURE THE TEST OF TIME.

entrepreneur

I have spent the best part of the last 15 years trying to get over the thrill of building businesses, yet I still jump out of bed 7 days a week to do what I love.From startup, to growth-stage and ultimately a well-positioned exit or IPO, I’m interested in every stage of the business cycle.I stay creative by building, consulting to and investing in various businesses and love nothing more than negotioating a great win-win deal.I believe that entrepreneurship is the most effective path to changing the world so I give back by applying my time and skills to worthy not-for-profit organisations and charities.

ceo

Since mid-2012 I’ve lead the great company VroomVroomVroom as CEO.Vroom compares and books car rental online at destinations all over the world. We’ve recently grown the team to 60+ people across 12 countries.VroomVroomVroom is a tightly held private company. Our HQ is in Brisbane, Australia with regional operations based out of Singapore, Hong Kong, the UK, USA and Philippines.I wear “three hats” at Vroom: Shareholder, Managing Director and CEO.

the future of workplaces and employment trends

Collectively, the Vroom Group employees a team across 12 countries who serves thousands of customers every day.As an entrepreneur Mike loves to solve real problems using technology and would choose a boring, profitable business over a VC backed startup any day of the week.

My team affectionately refers to me as a coffee snob.

I’m a frequent flyer and an aviation buff.

I value education 100x more than entertainment.

I consume 30 – 40 non-fiction business books and biographies each year.

A nice bottle of red wine solves most challenges & celebrates all wins.

Liked this simple but seemingly effective negotiation strategy to build stronger relationships with a client or partner that you expect will grow over time
