A truly innovative mind with a lengthy career in Advertising, including 20 years in management at Saatchi & Saatchi. Legendary reputation of delivering 700 winning pitches. I’ve seen Michael in live action presenting to international Clients and I’ve learned a lot from him. He has made an impact on my presentation style, pitching stories and ideas’ conceptual ability.

Yorgos Zannias

Founder & Chairman at BBDO Group Greece

The unique breed of a Creative brand strategist. Awarded among the most 25 important world-known Advertising men by Advertising Age. He founded a powerful network of 17 agencies. He gave me a lifetime lesson on corporate management and coordination, and an opportunity to test my skills, developing and growing, and then he pushed me forward to manage one important business unit of the Group.

Sir Frank Lowe

Knighted for Advertising & Charity; Founder of Lowe Worldwide

He started a small creative agency to develop a famously awarded global agency network. His legendary campaigns for Heineken and Stella Artois benchmarked the creative global scene. He gave me two invaluable pieces of advice on a rainy London day: a) never give up with communication stories while others usually execute their client’s request and b) be really creative in the client service domain. I’m still following his advices after 30 years

Gregory Antoniadis

Communications & Media Director, Unilever

An accomplished leader in the FMCG market. In a world of complacent marketing, he was one of the most inspiring Clients I’ve ever worked with. Encouraged my teams to produce great campaigns (memorable, awarded, selling) by stimulating initiatives and passion. What more to ask from a marketer? We produced together some highly effective campaigns and I always recall the opportunities he has given to my teams and myself.
