Mike is the founder practitioner of T4P. He has extensive experience of creating and holding space where contentious issues between participants can be addressed in a way that people feel safe to take risks. Driven by a deep concern for justice and hope for all that cities can be, he is currently researching the political potentiality of diversity at the level of the city (rather than the state) for a PhD. Mike has long experience of governance of a wide variety of voluntary organisations and is particularly interested in helping organisations in transition. For ten years he has been applying Art of Hosting practice and delivering AoH trainings.
