“It was my knowledge of strategy that allowed me to seize power, if I were to allow others to learn what I learned; they may seize power from me.”
For hundreds of years books on strategy were hidden away and kept secret, lest the immense power such knowledge bestowed should fall into the wrong hands.
All of which begs the question; what is so dangerous about strategy?
Author Stefan Verstappen has studied strategy for over 25 years, from the martial arts arena to society as a whole, Stefan has tested and applied the principles of strategy to discover their true effectiveness.
As the famous swordsman Myamoto Musashi once wrote:
“By studying ‘The Way’, you can apply it to master all the arts without further instruction”.
Strategy is like a template for success that can be applied to any endeavour.
What is this template and how to apply it?
Stefan will reveal the secrets of strategy in a simple and scientific manner that anyone can understand and learn to use to become successful. All attendees will receive a free signed copy of Stefan’s book, The Thirty Six Strategies of Ancient China.
Here’s what people are saying about this talk:
“Now it all makes sense. Stefan explained what and how to use strategy in a way that you can easily remember and apply for the rest of your life.”
