Updated: May 31

Here comes the first of several exciting announcements that we will be making in the coming days... We are delighted to welcome Michael Wigg to the team!

Michael will be working with us on an exciting new product that we are launching in the coming days that will be available to colleagues in the UK, Ireland, and the United States, but more on that in the coming days...

Michael is excited about joining the Coole Insight team and said, “I am fully aware of the impact the Students’ Unions have on students' lives. Organisations like Coole Insight enable unions to deliver their full potential and the impact their members deserve. I look forward to adding to their work in various contexts and supporting the delivery of a healthier and thriving student movement. I am particularly passionate about inclusive leadership, supporting mental health and ensuring sustainable organisations that are student-led”.

Michael is currently the Chief Executive at The University of Westminster Students'​ Union and has over twelve years of senior leadership experience within the Students’ Union sector. Michael is a current member of the Region VIII leadership team of the Association of College Unions International (ACUI), a trustee of two Students’ Unions, a Chair of a youth football club, and the chair of governors within a multi-academy schools trust.

Michael has spent the last 19 years working in the student movement, including two years as a sabbatical officer and a range of roles prominently in advice, opportunities, democracy and representative functions and has served on numerous National Union of Students (UK) (NUS) working groups and committees.

Through his experience, knowledge and qualifications, Michael brings a unique perspective and proven ability to the Coole Insight team, including the design and delivery of Union turnaround plans, interim leadership capacity, a qualified Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) instructor, a qualified coach, and an accredited Institute of Leadership and Management (ILM) facilitator and practitioner.

Welcome Michael!
