Who are you are what do you do?
I’m Mike Grocott, founder of Intercog.
I help people to interact better with other people so they can achieve more of whatever it is they are aiming to achieve. So I help people with presenting, networking and working together, in fact, anything that involves communication in one way or another.
However it is that they want to interact with people, I work with them to give them the confidence to do it more effectively and therefore achieve greater success.
Why do you do it?
It’s immensely rewarding to help people to develop their knowledge and skills and to then see their confidence grow as they put that new knowledge and those new skills into action. Making a positive difference to someone is the best job in the world!
What I do is also a lot of fun (and the people with whom I work seem to find it fun too).
Why is being a member of Finest important to you?
Finest is important to me because of the relationships it has allowed me to develop over the years. When I set up Intercog in 2009 I only knew two business people locally. I now know hundreds and most of those have come through Finest.
As those relationships grew, so did my business.
Why are you a member of the Steering Group?
Back in the early days of my business, the generosity of time and knowledge from Finest members was immensely welcomed and highly beneficial both to my business and to me personally. As Finest played a major part in helping me to establish my business, I felt the need to reciprocate and give something back to Finest and its members, hence why I joined the Steering Group.
