FIRST Guest: Michael Stratford
Michael is a champion of uniqueness and specializes in unorthodox thought leadership. When presenting it’s been said he’s a blend of wise elder and wickedly irreverent comedian.

He has created an ACTP called Coaching Mastery Program: Designed with Mastery in Mind that he’s delivering both in person and online for China. He’s also very excited that 2020 will be the debut of his long awaited, labor of love called 7 Realms: A Quest for Self- Mastery, which is like nothing ever seen or experienced before in the personal and professional development world. It is a truly Gamified world experience both in person and online.
