Ron Lee is "The Corporate Ninja" and speaks at conferences and trains all management levels on four continents. The keynote presentations and training are mostly derived from eastern/western philosophies, universal laws, practical metaphysics and martial arts and are distilled into forms that can be used immediately in business and personal life.

He studied at the National Institute of Dramatic Art, and his experience in Theatre (he still retains an agent who also manages Olivia Newton-John and Russell Crowe), stand-up comedy and 27 years and eight forms of martial arts, gives Ron credentials to speak on personal power to all social and business levels, and has addressed many academic
audiences, one of which was a group of surgeons on the subjects of "The Role of The Mind & The Spirit in Healing" and "Metaphysics in Relation to Science & Medicine".

As the result of a Hoax presentation at the International Contact Lens Conference, Ron was invited to be a regular lecturer in Communication at the University of NSW, which he did for eight years.  Client feedback states that participants become more solutions-focused and are inspired to raise levels of expectation of their personal performances.
Ron's seven pillars of effectiveness are Certainty, Presence, Purpose, Focus, Vision, Fun and Inner Strength.

Ron Lee, CSP, plays the role of a Japanese industrial giant who is the central character in a motivationally interactive and inspirational presentation designed and written specifically for your organization.  He engages audience members to demonstrate the ways in which martial arts techniques assist individuals and companies in exceeding personal and corporate goals.The philosophies come from the ancient writings of Chinese military general Sun Tzu ("The Art of War") and from Miyamoto Musashi, an undefeated 17th century samurai who wrote about success, lifestyle, self-motivation and achievement ("A Book of Five Rings").

After making an announcement that shocks those present, he conducts question time in which the answers are both outrageous and credible. At an appropriate moment, he reverts to Ron Lee who gives a humorous and comprehensive debrief of the exercises and how they relate to the company message.

The purpose of The Ninja is to motivate, entertain, and inspire. The Ninja Hoax is performed at conferences, seminars, product launches, conventions, etc, and presentations can include "the board" and "the arrow" if you wish.  We pinpoint your corporate message to focus on such specifics as sales, leadership, change, teams and empowerment. According to clients, participants focus on solutions rather than problems and are inspired to raise levels of self-expectation of their personal performance.  The "value-add" is martial arts-based inspiration that you can use immediately in business and personal life.  You get a comedy Hoax AND valuable and powerful messages.
