In 2016, Michael was elected the first practising Fellow at The Institute of Corporate Responsibility and Sustainability and has also featured in the ‘Economia’ Top 50 most influential business people, following his work to establish the Living Wage and persuade more than 2,500 employers to join this movement. Under his direction, KPMG were also acknowledged as the leading Corporate Social Responsibility organisation by The Sunday Times and The Financial Times.
