Paul Szyarto’s deprived and violent childhood could easily have led him to a life of crime. Instead, he served with distinction in the U.S. Navy, earned degrees from Oxford University, Brandeis University, and the Wharton School of Business, and went on to become a remarkably successful entrepreneur and management consultant. Paul credits his success to his mastery of martial arts, which he says enabled him to channel his aggression and develop the discipline, character, and skills he says are essential in business today. Having spent the last 17 years working with more than 400 companies worldwide valued at more than $100 billion in capital, Paul’s diverse expertise in business management and development has made him a much sought after consultant to clients such as AOL, Goodyear, SAP, BMW, Bentley, Siemens, Kellogg’s, Bayer, Heineken, and more. Paul Szyarto’s mission is to empower individuals to discover, harness, and apply their strengths to achieve peak performance and success as entrepreneurs.
