Editorial & Learning Services

My approach to superior-quality EDITING does not necessitate the counting of words or documents to prove my value proposition for your writing and publishing goals. My approach to architecting experiences and conducting research in Game-Based Learning (GBL) has positioned me as a significant thought leader in the field.


As a recognized Fellow of the Business Excellence Institute, my contributions to the academy, executive and leadership development, teamship, research, and entrepreneurship over the past 50 years have afforded me numerous writing and scholarship awards.  ​

“In his compelling book [Emotify!], Dr. Michael Sutton … walks us through the moment when those at the forefront of education and training knew without doubt that a disruptive value proposition for learning had to be created and deployed. ... [B]alancing research with extraordinary pragmatic experience, [he] helps us understand how learning comes about when an emotional connection is made and why gameplay is a powerful means to make that connection, giving a better return on learning than any other approach.” —Eliane Alhadeff, Serious Games Market Editor
