My name is Mike Thompson and I am an entrepreneur, coach and writer based out of Barcelona, Spain. I have a bad habit of asking smart people for advice, disregarding it and then writing about them being right. The main reason I write is to connect with new people - so feel free to reach out.
From copyrighting, editing and marketing services to improving presentation, interview and negotiation skills. Check out the services page for a full run-down and learn more about what I do by reading about what I have helped my past clients do.
WRITING & MARKETING
Assisting entrepreneurs, start-ups and stay-ups to better reach their target audience with the message that best represents their mission and values (continue).
PRESENTING WITH CONFIDENCE
No matter how great your ideas, or equipped your skill set, if you cannot define clearly who you are and how you can help, you will never make the impact that you set out to make (continue).
MANAGING CAREER CHANGE
Going after your goals takes sacrifice, but that does not mean changing careers or sectors should entail a demotion. We will work together to soften the blow of embarking in a new career (continue).
Every week I have to present my company´s projects to clients and Michael really helped me improve my confidence in this area along with my sales and negotiation skills. Michael brings a lot of energy and creativity to his work. It is very clear that Michael cares deeply about his clients and it really shows in his work and dedication.

A mutual friend recommended me working with Michael in order to present my company in English. We connected immediately and soon after I asked Michael to partner with me to grow Corpore Wear into English speaking countries. Besides being very creative, he is great with dealing with people and building new relationships. I have learned a great deal by working with Michael.

I worked with Michael when I was looking to change my career and he helped me a great deal in not only my interview and presentation skills, but also in having a better idea of what type of job I would enjoy. Michael truly believes that anything is possible if you work hard and keep learning and his energy is very inspiring. I have recommended numerous friends from my MBA program at ESADE to Michael and all of them were very happy working with him.

During my MBA program at ESADE I was referred by a fellow student to work with Michael to improve my communication skills in order to be accepted into a program in Australia. In the short time I worked with Michael he helped me to accomplish my goals and greatly raised my confidence. I cannot recommend working with Michael enough as a Coach.
The best thing about Michael is that he wants the people around him to succeed and he is very motivating in encouraging people to go after their goals. I was referred to Michael upon graduating from university and he helped me to identify my strengths, how to properly communicate my ideas and how to talk about myself. Shortly thereafter I was hired in a Sales Management position with a multi-national company and I cannot be happier with where I am in my career.
Michael immediately identified the areas of my communication in which I needed to improve upon and worked with me to achieve my goals in a very short amount of time. Shortly after working with Michael I was accepted into the Kellogg School of Management and since then I have been working in various cities around the world. Michael is very goal oriented, while at the same time very easy to work with.

Michael was referred to me and my business partner by a family member who highly recommended him. Michael has helped raise my confidence when speaking in both business and social situations in English, going as far as accompanying me to business meetings to meet with new clients. I have referred Michael in the past and will not hesitate to do so in the future.
– Pere Valero / Founder and Co-owner of Datacom Global
I fell in love with Michael during his Presentation & Negotiation seminar that he gave with the Generalitat de Catalunya (Catalan government). Literally. We got married less than a year later.
– Laia Andreu / Wife / Mother of his child
A colleague recommended reaching out to Michael to improve my communication skills in regards to presentations, negotiations and being more vocal in meetings. I am now better at creating meaningful relationships in English and my confidence has grown significantly by working with him. Michael and I are close friends now and despite no longer working together we remain in constant contact.
– Jordi Fabregat / Insolvency Manager / La Caixa
I am very fortunate to have Michael on my team to help new teachers from all over the world find work in Barcelona and abroad. Each month he gives a seminar to the new trainees on how to find employment and works with each one of them individually on their job search. During the last 6 years Michael has helped over a thousand people to find work all over the world. Michael truly cares about every person he meets.
