Mike Mister

Partner (PSF)

Mike is a Partner at Møller Institute where he works in supporting the development of leadership and change management capability in the specialised area of professional services firms. His key areas of expertise and interest are at the intersection of strategy, commercial success and the organisation’s people agenda.

Mike is also very effective in the design and presentation of executive education programmes, and has worked extensively with many of the leading faculty working in the professional services field. The key thrust of these programmes is always the use of executive development as an enabler in driving change and improving financial performance. As well as working with the world’s top professional services faculty, Mike has taught business strategy, leadership, and a variety of personal development topics around the world including China, India, South Africa, Argentina, Australia, the USA and across Europe.
