“An Outstanding Motivator”
“It is easy to spot a great leader; their passion for others, their ability to discern and make the right decisions, they share their knowledge while making others feel comfortable along the way; they are strong and carry confidence while enthusing others to do better. Why is it easy to recommend Mike Reading? He is one of them!”

You were AWESOME. Thank you so much – it’s great when presenters are so professional and offer such practical information.
Rob Plevin; owner of Behaviour Needs LTD
I just wanted to say an extra big thank you for providing such a great service. Online, at night and in the comfort of home – with my two young children asleep in the other room – pretty awesome actually. It was very engaging and entertaining.
Leda McFadzean; teacher
“I have been teaching for four years, and this was the best Professional Development course I have completed. Your system about culture of engagement and strategies are inspiring and the ones I have tried already work. I told my students I was doing the course and each Friday would try something new, even the students said to me “you should do these things more often” – instant motivation!”
Ailie Granger; Griffith High School
“OMG!!! What a change! This class has a lot of students in it, and I find the room very small for all the different personalities. But after I set the picture, the students were working with me instead of against me.”
Vicki Nation; Chair Mathematics Faculty - Billanook College
