Founder & Host
Humans of Purpose
Mike is the Founding Director of Purposeful, an award-winning ethical consultancy that helps clients to create and narrate greater social impact; and to develop a high performing and purpose-driven culture.
He is creator and host of the popular Humans of Purpose podcast, where each week he hosts conversations with senior leaders from Australia’s business, startup and social purpose sectors. He is also a Director at SIMNA, Australia’s peak social impact measurement body.
After a career working in senior roles in the law, not for profit and government sectors, Mike took his agile, human-centred approach to impact consulting, forming his company Purposeful. Purposeful now works with government, not for profits and companies, helping them to measure and communicate impact and to develop purpose-driven culture.
Mike thinks differently and is influenced by systems-thinking, behavioural science, startup and human-centred approaches. He closely studies centres of excellence, innovation and thought leaders and is keen to showcase the latest industry evidence on what works. He draws upon these areas of knowledge and his applied experience across sectors to draw unique and translatable insights for his audiences.
He speaks from his own experience and draws out insightful human truths that help audiences to improve their own business strategy, management, impact and culture.
"Podcasting has the power to create community and orient people around a common purpose - to learn, to grow and to give back."
