In recent years and prompted by the challenges facing Sydney's night time economy he launched and chaired the Night Time Industries Association which was instrumental in lifting the lockout laws, and shaping the State of NSW’s 24 Hour Economy Strategy. In February 2021 Michael was announced as the NSW’s inaugural 24 Hour Economy Commissioner, a role he commenced on 29 March 2021.
