his art, his stories and his facilitation. A widely
acclaimed Juno nominated (Canadian Grammy) pianist and
composer whose 1983 album PIANOSCAPES would serve as
a benchmark for contemporary instrumental music - Michael

writer, thought leader and creative facilitator.
Michael, - who has produced fifteen more solo and ensemble
recordings and written two books on creative leadership

a meeting with a stranger who asked the question; "Who
will play your music if you don't play it yourself?"
This question changed his life and inspired a recording
career that has spanned decades and enchanted millions
during what he expected to be a short break from an
established career as an organizational consultant and
Then he came full circle. By bringing together a lifetime
in music and a career in leadership education he has
been inspiring others to find their own music
ithrough keynote talks, seminars and facilitated conversations
that others have experienced as
genuine and transformational". In so doing
he is also articulating a new story of leadership engagement
that is imaginative, balanced, reflective and whole.
