About me

Have you ever taken part in an event that changed your life?

For me, it was volunteering for a building project for orphaned children in Sierra Leone.

When I came home, I wanted to do more to help. So I started creating events around two of my great passions in life: sport and business.

From long-distance relays to enterprise challenges, each of our events is about bringing people together to raise money for a fantastic group of charities.

I spent many years as a senior cost planner for Babcock International. I now run my own construction consultancy firm. Over the years, I’ve delivered everything from multimillion-pound redevelopments in London to community health centres, MoD facilities and church projects.

What’s the link between construction and fundraising?

Well, the main one is people. I love working with people. And I love building teams to overcome challenges. That’s one reason why both sport and business are at the heart of our events. As both a businessman and a lifelong amateur athlete, I’ve seen the ability and impact sport and business have to bring people together and make a difference to young lives.

If you’d like to support what we’re doing, we would love to hear from you.

I’ve worked with Michael for 14 years and his leadership and vision for the Hope Alive Tour has been inspirational. It continues to have an impact on the lives of children, both in the UK and beyond. Thank you, my friend.
