Welcome to my Author Biography. My name is Michael Ryan and I am a ‘rookie’ Author. I am a middle aged Irishman who is a Business Leader with 25 years experience implementing change in the Corporate World. At home I am your typical sports mad bloke who has a passion for football and coaching athletics.
I am also an energising Motivational Speaker who performs as RyanTalks, in which I love to spark debate on how to manage change in your life and career. I appreciate how challenging it is to change direction in any walk of life and to make that change sustainable in the long term.
When I hit middle age, I realised that everything I had done to live, thrive and survive was failing me! If I was to live the 2nd half of my life happy, healthy, wealthy and pursuing my dreams, then I was going to have to change myself. So that is what I set about doing.
In this, my first Book, I aim to help people address the life changing challenges of middle age. I have drawn upon my Corporate Change experience and a life time in athletics Coaching to share with people how these challenges can be approached.
As sporting careers have a finite lifespan, they presented the best way to tell the story about the challenges of mid life change in a fun and engaging way. In writing this Book about Change at a personal level I am aiming to show how the Corporate and Sporting worlds can combine to help anybody tackle Change in their lives.
As susceptible to a Mid Life Crisis as anyone else, I embraced it to Hit My Reset Button and my life has changed instantly from Business Leader to Author! I do hope you all enjoy the Book and that there is something in it that helps you make your Change!
Thank you for Reading.
