Automation & Marketing Smarts For L&D With Mike Collins

Read more

Not many in L&D recognise the opportunity to automate L&D administration, compliance and entire digital learning journeys, saving enormous amounts of time as well as guiding employee performance. 

But what does it take to get to this and how do L&D teams take advantage of this opportunity, especially during these tough times? We explore all this and more in this episode.


  • The most rewarding and satisfying results come from helping organisations get to a better place in terms of improvements in culture, performance and communication.
  • There is a low expectation of what learning and development offers. It can be seen as a perk of sorts, which has led to a perceived “dumbing down” of the profession.
  • Spend less time trying to work out what solutions there are out there, and more time understanding the performance problems in your organisation. 
  • One of the main advantages provided by smart technology has been building user insights into any campaign, allowing us to move away from “content play” to a real dialogue.


‘One of the biggest challenges for organisations is data’

‘It’s about predefining a route that you want people to take’

’Those conversations are what gets me out of bed in the morning'

Mike Collins not so sweet love story, sugar addiction, weight loss and finally recovery

Read more

Raised on sweet love lead to an addiction. Like many Mom's, a hug and squeeze, with a cookie on the side, makes the world go round. https://www.lifecoachadele.com

Mike says he was raised on sugar and lots of it. Finding himself overweight, loosing hair, suffering from too much fun, before he figured out he was addicted. But quitting beer was only the first step. He soon discovered that the nights he didn't drink, meant a night time of snacking on sweets. Sobering up and piling on the weight.

But now Mike is free of all his addictions, and thirty years sugar free. He even raised his kids sugar free! But it didn't happen over night and he found that there wasn't much support or literature available in the seventies.

Collins was ahead of the curve, but it took time for him to figure it out. Listening to his body and the food he ate. over the next decade he interviewed over 200 experts from all over the world, until he had a deep understanding of what happens to the brain and body when it comes to addiction and sugar.

Did you know that the average person takes in seventeen teaspoons of sugar a day! And it comes with a cost, on our health and our wallet! Of course obesity, diabetes are obvious, but would you consider that removing sugar from our diet can save many people as much as a car payment, or even a mortgage payment! Now that makes "cents"

The truth is that our brain operates on a reward system, and sugar manipulates and interferes with our body and minds chemistry.

So Mike came up with a solution, one that includes the necessary support needed to succeed. Because more than 90% of addiction recoveries fail to lose weight or an addictions without support.

And his approach is gentle, as long as you have the desire he is willing to work you through it. It takes a few weeks to begin the sugar detox process. He says he begins with education, provides tools and a tribe of like minded people. He recognizes there is always a deeper cause to weight loss. Once a client is on board with sugar detox, he reveals the remaining two dragons in the den. 

Flour and caffeine are often the downfall of gaining back the weight. Flour turns to sugar in the gut and coffee is often taken with a sugar. In the end, these silent addictions, bring us down.

And once we recognize the three addictions associated with weight loss and addiction, results happen. But it doesn't happen without support. Almost all addiction recovery processes recognize this component to recovery. 

Mike recognizes it takes time and he never leaves anyone hanging. Gentle steps as you heal from both the cravings and detox. #sugaraddiction #weightloss #addiction
