episode 33: Michael Ray: Solo dad, speaker, author & advocate


For Michael Ray, becoming a Dad at the tender age of 49 was a shock in itself, and two years after that– an even bigger shock - that he found himself as the sole parent to his beautiful baby girl - Charlie.

Michael speaks about his insights from his personal journey raising his daughter and the profound impact being a solo dad has had on his outlook.

He addresses the gender and societal roles that are no longer applicable and the negative impact on organisational, business and personal outcomes. Michael speaks straight from the heart and his ability to connect, resonate and inspire people is obvious.

He has had numerous TV and radio appearances and has been featured on a number of both local and international publications and podcasts.
