Testimonials for Michael Weston

Michael Weston was our inaugural Guest Speaker at our Ambitious Leaders Network held in Perth. Michael moved and inspired our audience with his life-changing and engaging speech Head Above Water. An important message for every Ambitious Leader.
Ambitious Leaders Network

Michaels story is very thought provoking and a wake-up call to many of us, not only how we manage our own work/life balance, stresses and pressures that come with them but also serves as a reminder to actively consider the health and well-being of the people we work with, those who work for us and those we work for. Our actions and influences can impact both positively and negatively. Thank you for the timely reminder Michael, much appreciated.

Thanks for the opportunity to hear from someone who has experienced it first-hand. It really makes you think what is important in life. Your story is truly amazing and I take my hat off to you for having the courage to share it with all of us.

I had the privilege to work with Michael in the time leading up to his injury. He was a professional, driven, technically capable and inspirational people leader – refreshing to see within a cut throat industry at the time. Following his injury, I asked him to return to the workplace to speak with my team and I can honestly say his story changed lives – mine for one. Audiences relate to him and his journey and he has an ability to engage people in self-reflection on many levels. To this day I use “Michaels Story” very regularly to remind people of what’s truly important in life.
