Meet Mike

I’m Mike Henshaw and I’ve worked in the automotive industry for over 30 years including many years as a Dealer Operator, so I’ve experienced at first hand the daily retail sales and operational challenges.

In the last fifteen years working in training and consultancy I’ve delivered training in over 50 countries around the world - and been stuck in most of those airports at some time of another! I’m not one of life’s eternal students; I much prefer real ‘hands on’ solutions that I know work when considering our daily challenges. I’m passionate about wanting to share with you my years of knowledge so that you can go on to become the ‘best you can be’ at your chosen task.

Say 'hello' to Ian

My life in the Motor Trade started in 1982, selling used cars from a non-franchised site. Exciting times for a youngster who loved all things automotive!

From this starting point, my career developed to include working with Vauxhall (Opel), BMW and even Aprilia Motorcycles - all valuable and varied experience which brought me into contact with a wide range of people and business practices.

Having achieved senior management level worked in these positions for many years, I then opted to join PEP as a Management Consultant and have spent the last 13 years working with motor manufacturers and their dealer networks – primarily focussed on improving operational performance and introducing processes that generate more sales and profit.
