He also delivers seminars, lectures and workshops, and was previously employed as a National Disability Coordination Officer under a federally funded program managed by Melbourne University. Michael developed the Organisation, Concept and Structure (OCS) model for teaching students with Asperger’s Syndrome and learning difficulties. He strongly believes that Asperger’s can be an asset to learning. Travelling across Australia as a motivational speaker, Michael’s extensive life experience – and his mantra that he has had a lucky life – is truly inspiring.
