Sugars believes his success rests upon the efforts and dedication of his team – right from the Global office to his network of Business Coaches –all over the world.

"The best part of our business is seeing our clients get the results they want and watching them do better in this recession than most other businesses," he said. "For me, creating a great team, giving clients great value for money and luck –defined as 'laboring under the right knowledge,' translate into success."
Passionate about helping businesses succeed, Sugars' professional background has been dedicated to this cause.
