Michael's Style


Michael knows his stuff. In a former life he was a law firm commercial litigation equity partner and in private practice for 17 years. Since then he’s been heading up KWC Legal and has personally helped more than 30,000 lawyers to hone their business development and pitching skills. 


Michael’s passion for law business development is infectious. Whether he’s training, speaking, facilitating, coaching or mentoring, his energy and enthusiasm inspires people to be the best they can be. His particular skill is energising and lifting an audience at the end of the second day of a big partner retreat. (No mean feat when late nights are often on the cards…)


Michael’s sessions focus on real, practical tools, techniques, and ideas that are directly actionable. No ethereal, theoretical business models here.  Michael equips people to start taking action straight away so that they can  convert contacts to clients and win more work from existing clients. 


With Michael’s coaching, learning and development doesn’t need to be a chore. His down-to-earth, humorous delivery keeps everyone engaged, while improving their business development and pitching skills in a relaxed yet productive atmosphere.
