Saxton Speakers brings one of Australia's top inspirational speakers -- success expert and best-selling author Matthew Michalewicz -- to Hong Kong and Singapore next week to address leading business group, the Institute and Faculty of Actuaries, about the science of success.
The four-time author and serial entrepreneur uses facts, science and experience to present the five fundamental drivers of success.
“This presentation is not about ‘thinking yourself to success’,” Matthew says. “It is an evidence-based process proven through thousands of studies and decades of scientific research.”
Free from opinion and bias, Matthew will explain the mechanics of each driver, why it works, and how it can be applied for attaining business, career, and personal goals.
Matthew's address is based on his groundbreaking book, Life in Half a Second, How to achieve success before it’s too late, which isolates the five most common traps we set for ourselves in business and life and explains how to turn these obstacles into opportunities.
Widely regarded as an international expert in success psychology, Matthew has been interviewed about his success by talk show hosts and leading financial journalists, including a cover story in Time Magazine in the US, Newsweek, and Forbes.
Before he was 25 years old, Matthew had established boards that included former heads of state, Nobel Peace Prize winners, and Fortune 500 CEOs. A decade later, he has a track record of starting businesses from scratch and selling them for tens of millions of dollars.
Matthew is also the author of Winning Credibility, Puzzle-Based Learning, and Adaptive Business Intelligence. He is a Visiting Fellow at the University of Adelaide, Australia, where he lectures on technology commercialisation, and an investor and Limited Partner in Blackbird Ventures, an Australian early-stage venture capital fund.
