About Mike

Mike Ogilvie – Profit Coach and International Professional Speaker

Born in Hastings in East Sussex, but fortunate enough to be exposed to multiple cultures and experiences as a child in Africa, having been brought up in Kenya, Tanzania, and Nigeria until a teenager, educated in Leicester, Mike has never been satisfied with a routine lifestyle, always looking to try something new, and his clients benefit from this outward looking expansive attitude.

Spending time with his wife Nadine and his son Daniel is most important to him, but sport remains important with skiing, golf, tennis, mountain biking and regular exercise taking priority as hobbies.

Visit Mike’s Face Book site for more insight into his life; he does like to live life to the full, and has completed the Coast to Coast ride on a mountain bike from Whitehaven on the UK west coast over the lake district mountains through to Newcastle on the east coast, in two long days with a group of friends.

With Nadine he climbed Mount Kinabalu in Borneo, after training on smaller mountains Helvellyn and Snowdon in UK , and has also ridden the tough off road 100 mile trail “The South Downs Way” on a mountain bike for charity. Recently he has climbed the mountains in Patagonia, in Argentina and Chile.
