Here you will find the Bio’s for Mike and Emma, the founders of Objective Secured. Their combined skills and experience have made Obsec what it is today.
Michael (or Mike more commonly) Basc is known locally and internationally as Massaen on the various gaming forums, podcasts and in the gaming community. Mike has more than two decades of experience playing table top game systems both in competitive event environments and as a hobby playing ‘friendly’ games with mates as a teenager and adult, freezing their tails off gaming in garages and under patios and anywhere mums, then later wives and girlfriends, would let them game.
Mike previously co-hosted the Worlds End Radio podcast, hosts the Objective Secured podcast and continues to run numerous events for the local community across the year in Perth Western Australia via Objective Secured.
While Mike plays more than a few gaming systems at times throughout the year, there are three main systems that see table time and event attendance (and wins) and there is one system that gets by far the most amount of games (and trophies) – Warhammer 40,000.
Mike has attended numerous tournaments over the years of playing local, national and international events. Mike has captained the Western Australian team for the Australasian 40k Team Challenge 3 years in a row (2014, 2015, 2016) and in 2012 he travelled to Poland representing Australia in the European 40k Team Challenge. He has play tested a game systems first edition of production (Malifaux) and was heavily, and officially, involved in championing that game system when it was released into the Western Australian market.
After more than 15 years in the field of advertising, marketing and event planning and 13 years of voluntary table top club and event planning Mike co-founded Objective Secured bringing together his passion for table top games with his skills in event planning and management to create Western Australia’s premier gaming event business.
A finalist in the 2011 Telstra Business Women’s Awards in both the White Pages and Government Award and the Marie Claire Young Business Women’s Award, Emma is a passionate advocate for business, leadership and balance.
Emma is a founding partner of Objective Secured, the CEO of a Non-profit organisation, an author, civil celebrant, speaker, coach (business, non-profit and life), as well as being a wife and mother. Emma is a passionate advocate for community and the development of social connectedness. Emma’s 13 year career as CEO of a non-profit organisation as her organisational involvement in the gaming community has focused on the positive effect of community and social connections on social, emotional and mental health.
The first year of Objective Secured has seen the development of a local, state, national and international sense of community and Emma is committed to continuing to build that sense of community through Objective Secured.
