Michael’s life has been full of challenges that he’s continuously had to overcome. Michael grew up the second child of five, in a domestic abuse household that saw him hospitalised at the age of 5.

He was diagnosed with HIV in his 20s and is passionate about being a voice to break down any associated stigmas. As an openly gay man, living with HIV in the corporate world, Michael is an advocate for dialogue and open conversations in the workplace. With humour, character and care at his core, Michael brings the importance of empathetic leadership to life and is passionate about empowering employees to be true to who they are.
