Michael Tobin OBE – Building an outstanding Personal Brand
By Donna O’Toole
Michael Tobin OBE
There is no doubt about it, Mike Tobin is the rock star of the datacentre industry. In fact it’s official, as voted by you the public, Mike is THE Top Influencer in data centres, cloud and data EMEA 2017. Three times winner of Ernst & Young’s Entrepreneur of the Year, one of the UK’s most inspirational Digital Leaders, and with an OBE for his services to the Digital Economy amongst many of his exceptional awards – is there anything this man can’t achieve?
Not only that, Mike is a true philanthropist and charity champion; in the summer of 2016 he ran 40 Marathons in 40 days – raising over £100K for the Prince’s Trust. In the same year, his CEO Sleepout in the City for Action for Children also raised hundreds of thousands of pounds to help get homeless children off the streets.
From being a homeless child himself, to become the maverick CEO who sent his team swimming with sharks, Mike is a true inspiration. His first book, Forget Strategy, Get Results, will teach you how to face your fears, overcome challenges and excel beyond all expectation. His next book, Live. Love. Work. Prosper. (coming soon) will teach you how to integrate every element of your life for the ultimate success.
We are so proud to work with Mike and to help him reach his personal and professional goals by maximising his exciting and inspirational personal brand. You see, while you and I think we are busy running one or two businesses, Mike maintains NED appointments, advisory positions and Chairmanships in 15 businesses across 4 continents.
So having time to manage his awards, online profile, connections, book promotions, website and charity fundraising alone is simply impossible. Mike’s colleagues, clients, passions and responsibilities come first to him, so his personal brand and professional profile comes first to us.
And of our help, Mike kindly says: “WE smashed it!”
“Donna and her team have helped me to raise over £250,000 this year alone through raising the profile of my charity initiatives. She always puts the best interests of my projects first, is trustworthy and highly conscientious and I would recommend her for any profile raising activities.”
Thank YOU Mike!
Entrepreneur. Philanthropist. Maverick….
