Mike Ode (Potential Unearthed Ltd)
Who are we?
“You are setting up a business together?” Mike's dad said. “You'll be under each other's feet 24/7” he added. “I can't imagine anything worse - can you imagine me and your mother?” he added further. We thanked him for his encouraging words of wisdom, ignored his comments and set up Potential Unearthed in 2009.
We believe that we are different to other similar providers (well we would say that wouldn't we?!). We only deal in areas that we are truly passionate about and the ones that we have first hand experience in, so you can relax in the safe knowledge that we really do know what we are talking about with the added bonus that we have already been there and made the mistakes for you!
This is an easy one - If its cheesy gimmicks and “chalk 'n' talk” style training that you are after then that's just not us, so it may be best to search again! Whatever your scenario, we will work with you to tailor a solution that fits your bespoke needs and within your budget.
Our sessions and solutions are relaxed, extremely enjoyable, stimulating and provide the best possible, safe environment for you to learn and perfect your new or enhanced skills. Our aim isn't to embarrass anyone but simply to stretch you so that you can meet your full potential.
Our fresh approach to the service we offer encompasses your whole personal experience with us from your initial moment of contact and beyond - we truly believe that the only way to ensure you keep coming back is to ensure a professional VIP experience, every time, guaranteed.
With over 13 years experience in the Training industry, we offer Business Coaching, Training and Business Consultancy Solutions to customers throughout the UK. Potential Unearthed specialise in areas such as Presentation Skills Training/ Coaching, Management Development, Trainer Development and assistance and guidance with business projects.
Hi I'm Mike Ode and I run Potential Unearthed
A Wiganer born and bred, I took the difficult decision to emigrate to Chorley (13miles) back in 1998
I am married to Sarah, who is also a Director of Potential Unearthed and we have a son Harry who was born in 2007. I'm still trying to convert him into an Evertonian without much success
My career in training started with the Benefits Agency back in 1997. Since then I have held various Training Officer and Manager positions within Retail, Local Government and more recently at a Top 60 Law Firm
My real passion lies in 1:1 Business and Presentation Skills Coaching, Management Development and Personal Development. I love helping people achieve their personal and business goals no matter how big or small.
I am a member of the Association for Coaching and hold a Post Graduate Diploma in Human Resource Management
