It was great speaking with Mike. Mike is such a positive and supporting expert. Looking forward to learning more from him.
MIke is an extremely motivitated and driven person. He possesses a natural ability to think beyond the obvious. His posititve attitude and innovative ideas make him a joy to work with.
I have had the pleasure to work with Mike on several occasions, and he is the model of an effective manager. His demeanor is gentle, but when he speaks everyone listens. Mikes work ethic is unparalleled and his professional knowledge is way beyond his years. There is nothing that stands in the way of Mike becoming one of the most successful people of our time- he is a natural leader and will definitely be making more waves in the years to come.
Although Mike was a my business partner, he has in many ways been a leader of mine. It is impossible not to be influenced by his vision and passion for his work. Whenever there were obstacles in our way, he would not stop until we figured out a solution, often thinking outside of the box.
Mike is a guy who is genuinely motivated by the value he creates for society. If he truly believes that what he is doing is for the greater good, nothing can stop him from accomplishing his aspirations. Like Steve Nash, he makes the people around him better at what they do and allows them to have their own spotlights.
Mike continues to support and inspire me through both his actions and his insights. As a colleague on the outside looking in, his work at TeamPages is impressive as he continues to paint a vision for a small yet productive staff. I view their team as motivated and driven to succeed, which can be difficult when the future is so uncertain. This said, Mike is readily available if his advice or experience is sought out by friends or colleagues.
Mike acted as both a peer and a mentor to me and the rest of the UVic team. The experience he gained during previous case competitions proved to be invaluable during both the preparation and execution of JDC West. His leadership style is difficult to define, yet the results are impossible to ignore. Whether our team needed a supportive role player, or an inspirational leader, I could always count on Mike to identify the situation and act accordingly while surpassing all of my expectations.
The consumate ethical entrepreneur; I arranged Mike's first round of financing at TeamPages and I would be happy do it all over again. He has a rare ability to see opportunities, and create value from those ideas, that very few people possess. He networks expansively, he cares deeply, he acts quickly and he does what he says he'll do. He is both recommendable and financeable.
I have had the opportunity to work directly with Mike on many projects. He is an innovative and energetic leader as well as a strong member of any team. Mike's passion for every task he is involved with is a powerful motivator for the rest of those involved and I would excited to have an opportunity to work with Mike again in the future.
Mike is an ambitious, entrepreneurial, and nice young professional. I believe he is able to succeed in any area he want to involve heself in.
Mike is an exceptional business leader. His entrepreneurial spirit and dedication to TeamPages are second to none. I strongly endorse Mike's business and involvement in the Victoria business community.
Mike Tan is a Visionary. He constantly strives to add value to people's lives and always operates with integrity. I've worked with Mike on projects in the past and he always delivers on his commitments and often exceeds expectations.
