Every HR professional has a specialism and for Michael Millward that specialism is training and development.

There is no point in providing employees with training if that training does not help that employee to contribute more effectively to the achievement of the company’s objectives.

It is this opinion that has enabled Michael Millward to build a successful career as a work place trainer.

There is much more to training than being able to stand up and present. Michael Millward has the ability to see a business plan from an employee development prospective, and build both a strategic and operational plan.

He has worked around the world in large blue chip multinational and start-up organisations, in joint venture, e-commerce, government, hi-tech, manufacturing, retail distribution, financial and service sectors delivering not just training courses but innovative approaches to work place learning.
