Working with Mike in his Group role at VimpelCom, he focused on getting a keen understanding of our local business challenges and organizational dynamics, and offering support where required. Mike proved to be a real partner by helping us build our internal communications team, providing us with tools and relevant information, and offering candid insights on what worked and what didn’t among our local communications initiatives. I truly enjoyed working with Mike, and I welcome the opportunity to work with him again in the future.

I have experienced the force that is Mike Klein in four capacities:
1) I hired Mike as an editor to craft case studies on social software. His business acumen and intimate knowledge of social dynamics combined with a superior command of language led to compelling results.
2) I participated in a workshop on tribes in organizations Mike hosted at an international conference on internal communications. His creative and strategic approach made it one of the highest rated at this conference.
3) I read his book “From Lincoln to LinkedIn”, an original and powerful take on organizational communication with thought leadership quality. Read it, it provides high value in short time!
4) I experienced Mike as a brilliant networker who is one of the driving forces behind IABC in the EMENA region.
Mike is a true professional that will be a great asset to any organization challenged with serious internal communication challenges.
Georg Kolb (leading branding, social and change communication strategist, Germany)
Mike is a courageous communication professional who asks the tough questions to drive for more effective results and more meaningful benefits. Anyone who works with Mike will find he drives for excellence, whether in his own career or in seeking ways to transform our profession. I’m pleased to endorse Mike.
Robin Russell McCasland, FRSA, SCMP (Former Chair, International Association of Business Communicators [IABC], USA)
Mike has a deep understanding of and passion for internal communication and is a great source of much needed maverick energy in the engagement space. It isn’t easy being an internal change agent. But without people like Mike constantly charging the barricades, challenging assumptions and defending the cause, the lot of the internal communicator would be much undermined.
