The Magnificence of Humanity with Michelle Mills-Porter

Can you imagine how your perspective on life might shift if a beautiful holiday suddenly turned into fighting for life in the Boxing Day Tsunami?

My guest Michelle Mills-Porter had an award-winning business which became the youngest in the UK to achieve Investors in People in the UK. Then that fateful day turned her world upside down.  Over the coming weeks, months, and years as she healed from her experiences her understanding of what drives us, what is at the core of our essence and our ability to collaborate through adversity brought a new more elevated purpose and the transition into a greatly admired behavioural expert. Michelle today has built a whole suite of behavioural tools, and her ground-breaking work with organisational leaders and young people has led to major step changes in performance and the wisdom to help others more effectively navigate the world of work.

Join us to hear a very powerful story and learn from insights that can help us to navigate our own personal journeys of change and turmoil whilst realising our own magnificence.

More about Michelle Mills-Porter:

20 years ago, Michelle’s first company was the youngest in the UK to gain Investors in People, reflecting the inclusive culture she wanted to create. However, it was when she was caught in the Boxing Day Tsunami that she discovered “The Magnificence of humanity”.

It changed her understanding of what drives us, what is at the core of our Essence and how our ability to collaborate is our solution to all adversity.

As a behaviour expert, Michelle has written a whole suite of analysis tools that help us to understand ourselves and each other better. They uncover our core driving forces, our most prominent qualities and how others’ perceive us. She works with Leaders to be able to develop heart led organisations where people are fulfilled, engaged and sky high performance is achieved.

She also works with young adults to help them navigate the world of work and with individuals who want to elevate their development. In this session, Michelle will share with you the experience that took her life on a different path and how that is even more poignant today, post pandemic.
