“Mike was a student of mine in the MBA program at the University of Dallas. It was the last course in the program and it was focused on consulting. Mike was the team lead. Four other students were on the team. They worked together for the entire semester and did a superior job with the project. The client was extremely satisfied. In his role as team lead, I worked closely with Mike and was able to assess his performance in that setting. He is a great leader and spokesperson. If you need further information, please let me know.” – March 9, 2008
