And yes, there is a slight connection with “Strictly” !   He was a director of the world’s largest social dance business for 16 years.

Michael founded a theatre funding business over 40 years ago, and has produced in the West End and on tour.   But added to that is his involvement in the world of dancing.   He is Vice-President of Dance Sport England and Chair of Adjudicators for the World Dance Sport Federation, and has acted as  Secretary-General of their professional division.

Other interests include or have included the National Youth Jazz Orchestra, the Stables Theatre at Wavendon, the London Music Hall Trust, The Young Vic Company, Denville Hall (the actors’ care home), and The Bud Flanagan Leukaemia Fund.   Michael is fluent in French and German, passionate about a tiny Greek island, and also lists music, travel, theatre, backgammon, swimming, cars, food and wine among his interests.
