Michael has applied his expertise in many sectors including Critical Infrastructure (Utility, Education, Healthcare, Government) and Commercial Retail and Residential Property Management. He’s authored numerous Emergency Response Plans, which have been implemented nationwide. He created a means of conducting a business impact analysis that focused on a devastating natural disaster, which was later adopted by one of Canada’s major national banks.
Michael believes in focusing on the possibilities rather than the problems. He looks at what is working, instead of what is wrong. He looks at the strengths and looks to take advantage of the existing assets to address and manage risks, engage people and elevate the security profile.
