I approached Michael during the inception of PRogress to help Chair our bi-monthly meetings. At the time, PRogress was an unfounded concept in the UK Public Relations Market place but, having great foresight, Michael took a leap of faith. PRogress has grown month on month due to the success of its meetings where Michael is instrumental in guiding and leading discussion, offering unrivalled advice and ensuring that PRogress stays ahead of the curve by imparting his knowledge and abundance of experience.

Michael has provided outstanding strategic advice and support for communications and PR to the Scotch Malt Whisky Society and its board through its buyout from LVMH to its international expansion. He is a very valuable advisor

As a successful destination marketing agency we were performing well but recognised that we would benefit from an external perspective. Michael has supported us in developing our long-term thinking, improved our financial performance, recommended structural changes to our business and supported us as we pursue new clients and business opportunities

For seven years Michael Murphy was a non-executive director of Think London, the award-winning investment promotion agency, whilst I was CEO. He was always straight-talking and passionate and gave wise counsel at the Boardroom table.

Waypoint, a growth advisory and corporate finance firm which I founded, grew 40% last year. Managing growth is not easy and having Michael as Non-Executive Chairman to help “steer the ship” has been invaluable. Working with him is a delight.
