“I worked with Michael for 5 months at a startup (Student Flight Club). Michael had a big impact on operations and structuring the startup which is crucial at an early stage. Michael has strong analytical skills and an eye for organisation and structure. He particularly impressed me with his drive to deconstructed complex environments into more approachable/solvable problems. He is a very smart guy you can count on. If you are looking for a team player to add structure and operational efficiency to the organisation Michael would be a great asset.”

“I am truly grateful I had the opportunity to work with Michael during my time in Netherlands, mainly because I learned so much – not only hardskils but also on softskills level. Michael managed to put proper operations into workings in about a month of working with our team. But he also participated in many other areas which was pushing our company to grow faster and in more professional manner. He was always willing happily to help any team member in need.
Michael is extremely smart, very honest, strong and assertive personality that understands people to navigate, help and lead the team.”
