Speaker/Trainer Bio

Dr Michael Netzley

Michael’s international career has spanned entrepreneurship, management consulting, and business school faculty.  A multi-award-winning facilitator and writer, his work focuses on: 

►Founding a start-up called Extend My Runway which operates at the intersection of neuroscience and artificial intelligence (AI)

►Leadership andcommunication, persuasion, and digital networks (especially open innovation)

►Cognitive neuroscience of high performance— for aging workforces and societies

►Personality assessment, dark-side traits,and developmentalcoaching(i.e., better manage complexity)

Currently Michael is the founder of Extend My Runway, a cognitive neuroscience start-up that enables aging professionals to excel through their 60s, 70s, and even 80s. Faced with a 100-year life, people increasingly choose to work past traditional retirement age. Companies, however, are typically organized for a younger workforce, and thus firms must retool to serve aging professionals.  Extend My Runway enables that transition, at a personal and organizational level, by translating best-in-class neuroscientific research into practical solutions that measurably improve cognitive performance and add more life to your years.

Previously Michael has worked in leadership consulting with Heidrick & Struggles, served as Academic Director of SMU Executive Development, and held faculty positions at Singapore Management University and the University of Minnesota’s Carlson School of Management.  He has also held visiting faculty positions in Argentina, Finland, Germany, Japan and Slovenia. 

For his efforts, Michael has been honoured with the Champion’s Award from the Centra land Eastern European Management Association for innovative learning approaches, and also the Best Case Award in entrepreneurship from EFMD – The Management Development Network.  His work with early adoption of 2.0 technologies in learning has been featured in the New York Timesand also MIT’s Technology Review.

Michael has personally facilitated sessions for more than 10,000 executives from firms such asMerck KGaA, GSK, Credit Suisse, BNP Paribas, UBS, HSBC, Unilever, IBM, 3M, DB Schenker, Samsung, Singapore Airlines, Text 100, UOB, CARE.org, SingHealth, NTUC Enterprises, Singapore Power, and Singapore’s MFA, CPF, MoE, and MAS.

Michael lived in Singapore since 2002 and in his spare time is writing a book about the future of executive development and training for his first triathalon.
