"Michael brings an appreciation for, and deep understanding of, time-proven Eastern principles, which while springing from a martial arts and military context, are truly applicable to all business and life matters. Coupled with his own experiences facing and defeating very real adversity — on the battlefield and in the boardroom — his keynote speeches guide, teach, and influence audiences to improve their business and personal lives. Michael’s capabilities are very much aligned with the concept of AGATSU, or “victory over self,” and his keynote learning steps have allowed me and my team to ascend to a higher level of performance and fulfillment.”

Jonathan Ross, Management & Communications Consultant, Black Rock Consulting
