If you look at Thomas Michael’s MMC profile, his tagline reads: SAP Training Guru. CEO. Speaker. Maker of Gin. Drummer. New Yorker. From Hamburg.
While I’m not equipped to comment on the quality of his gin, or musical talents, I can absolutely attest to the fact that he is an SAP training guru.
Thomas originally started MMC as a boutique SAP consulting company, but over the last ten years, the business has completely shifted into e-learning. MMC has snowballed into an SAP platform with 18,000+ students and is now the leading provider in SAP education.
In addition to being the CEO of MMC, Thomas Michael is also a highly rated instructor. Thomas creates courses for two main reasons:
With 130+ reviews, 500+ students, 6 live courses and at least 5 more courses in development, Thomas has accumulated years of knowledge about creating successful courses for MMC. New instructors should tap into his experience and expertise when creating their own course(s).
Thomas’s SAP-Fiori End User Course has been extremely popular, with over 40 reviews and an average rating of 4.7 out of 5. I have personally taken the course and was captivated by his succinct, clear and short lessons. In the age of Twitter, shorter lessons and courses are gaining momentum and becoming increasingly more popular. Thomas’s course embodies this trend and the high rating reflects it.
SAP Fiori is one of the most searched for SAP topics on our website, followed by searches for HANA and Purchasing. However, seeing as SAP trends are always shifting, Thomas always encourages instructors to teach their expertise and tap into the demand that instructors see in their professional work. There is always an audience, and instructors know better than anyone else where people have questions and where people struggle the most. This is one of the many tips that Thomas has for new and existing instructors.
Thomas is an Asset Accounting expert, with most of his courses falling within this category. Check out his SAP Asset Accounting Courses.
He also offers a free course about Installing the SAP GUI. His course coupled with his blog provides a comprehensive overview of everything students need to know about installing the SAP GUI. I encourage all current and prospective instructors to take his course for inspiration.

Just because Thomas is the CEO, doesn’t mean he’s above the struggles of creating courses for MMC. Like all our instructors, he deals with perfecting his audio, coming up with topic ideas and submitting his courses for approval to Leslie (our director of training development). As Thomas says in the interview, he’s both a CEO and a customer. Here are 20 tips, thoughts and words of wisdom from MMC’s CEO:
Thomas said it best: just jump in and give it a try. Leslie and I are here to help throughout the entire process. There are myriad reasons to create courses, whether it’s to position yourself as an expert, create a passive income stream or expand your professional horizons. But at the end of the day, you can rest assured that you will positively impact the experience of a student diving into the world of SAP.
