Early life and education

Sage was born in Leicester, England. Sage attended aprivate school from the age of 4 to the age of 10 attending Leicester Grammar. At the age of 10, his parents were forced to transfer Sage to a state school due to the high cost of private education. In 1984 he joined the British Army Cadet Force and at 14 became the youngest qualified 4-star instructor in Force’s history. A record that stands to this day. Sage was also the Lord Lieutenant Cadet, meeting the Queen of England and other members of Royalty when he was 16 years old. He was also a decorated marksman and national shooting champion. He dropped out of school when he was 16 years old, never completing higher education. Soon after Sage started his entrepreneurial career with ‘Pete’s Toys’ by selling toys at flea markets and car boot sales.[9][10]

Career

In 1995 he founded the Sage Group which was a conglomerate of several businesses in the fields of publishing, property, media and health. By the age of 25 Sage became financially independent, buying his first home and Ferrari outright. Such accomplishment at a young age affected Sage mentally and physically, which ended with him in burnout and a near-fatal car accident. The accident became a turning point in both his career and philosophy on success. Sage as an overachiever suffered from the idea of not being enough and constantly striving for success as a vehicle to prove self-worth. This is common amongst many CEO’s.

In 2002, Sage became the youngest serving official trainer for Robbins Research International, the seminar company of well known motivational speaker, Anthony Robbins. Sage’s role involved conducting strategic interventions for a diaspora of people. His expertise in this area focused on dealing with drug addicts, the homeless, victims of trauma as well as struggling entrepreneurs.

In 2003, he co-founded a health & fitness center chain, The Energie Fitness Group which was successful and won several industry awards. He sold the company in 2005 and started working on a large space-based solar power project, Space Energy.

Sage was a member of the global Entrepreneurs Organisation and also served as the Chairman of the London YES Group. He was also a visiting professor for INSEAD, a graduate business school, and also served on its entrepreneurship advisory board from 2009 to 2014. During his career, he has been hired by several governments, members of Royalty, Google, NASA, and others.

In 2016, Sage founded a professional training and coaching institute - Sage Academy.[11] Under which he operates the Sage Business School, Elite Mentorship Forum, and Masters Circle.

Sage is also an accomplished athlete and has participated in several marathons including London and Vancouver. He is a qualified open water diver, an experienced skydiver, and a decorated marksman. He is a qualified Navigator for the organization of the value ‘Life-Pilot’ and a certified Master Practitioner of Neuro-linguistic Programming (NLP).

He is a multiple (6X) TEDx speaker and has shared the stage with Kofi Anan, Sir Richard Branson, President Bill Clinton, Steve Wozniak, and others.

Sage wrote his first book at 18 on Health and Fitness “Supreme Physique” and has since authored ‘5 Keys To Master Your Life’ that is Amazon No.1 best-seller in Japan and has sold over 150,000 copies.[12][13][14] He is also the co-author of ‘Leap’ with Jack Canfield and ‘Lessons Learned from the Recession’ from the Business Leaders Book Club. His latest book ‘The Inside Track’ became Amazon number one bestseller on its first day of release.[15]

Controversy

Sage was involved in a controversy with the Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE). HPE claimed that Sage sold $12.5m worth of servers obtained at a special discount through the Space Energy venture in the UK and elsewhere, which were destined for Iraq and Afghanistan.[16] Sage denied HPE's allegations and claimed that he was not bound by the terms and restrictions in reseller agreements once he had legal title to the servers. HPE issued a contempt of court application claiming Sage has breached the terms of a freezing order. Sage denied this though his claims were not considered valid and served 6-months as a civil prisoner. The initial allegations by HPE then failed to make it to court. During Sage’s time inside, he was praised by the governors for helping numerous prisoners and won a Koestler Award for his work. He started an initiative aimed at shifting the prisoners' mindsets which is now being used in numerous Prisons across the world including the UK, Australia, the USA & Hungary. Awards
