How Michael is building a better working world

Michael has a passion for philanthropy, in terms of personal fund raising via sponsored cycle events, through to his focus on pushing for a reform of the tax system to help develop a bigger culture of giving in the UK. Michael is an avid supporter of donor-advised funds, and speaks regularly on their tax benefits, and how they help energise family gifting.
