Unified Brainz celebrated the glorious careers of prominent leaders from around the globe, leading by example with resilience, diligence, and perseverance on the occasion of World Environment Day on the 5th of June 2022. The launch showcased the first edition of the unique dark mode Coffee Table Book, “Who’s Who of The World,” which was unveiled during its virtual event. This exquisite ceremony saw the presence of trailblazers from various industries who have scaled massive heights of success and have shared their passion journey.
With a myriad of different experiences and exposure, dynamic entrepreneur and marketing mentor John Sachtouras was always destined to make it big on the global stage.
Born in beautiful Greece, he began his professional journey at his father’s tour and travel business where he was quick to learn every tool of the trade – from simple airport transfers and planning vacation packages to organising group tours and large conventions. Due to the nature of the job, he realised the importance of learning English and ended up learning four foreign languages within three years!
In 1978, he had his first flight experience to Paris, and “felt liberated to see the ground from up above in the sky. I discovered my passion for travelling and decided to travel as much as I could,” says John. Never one to give up on his dreams, John has travelled to more than 100 countries till date, some even multiple times.
In 1986, John left Greece and landed in the USA in search of his American dream. As he scouted around for business opportunities, he discovered Network Marketing in South California. The various concepts of this industry triggered his interest – self-development, leadership skills, the power of multiple income streams, helping other people succeed through teamwork, and the flexibility to conduct business across the globe from one’s home.
John ended up devoting more than three decades to this industry, helping people achieve their dreams, and accomplishing his own at the same time. A renowned Marketing Strategist today, he has conducted thousands of training presentations for millions of people around the world, and lectured at several universities on various business topics with one main focus – to never ever give up on one’s dreams, no matter what.
To realise this vision, John founded his dream company – ASCIRA, in Dubai two years ago. He brought together professional content providers, top authors, motivational speakers, and experts and leaders from all over the world, to empower people to attain their optimum potential and improve their quality of life, under one educational virtual platform.
ASCIRA is a subscription-based digital company, offering online access to products, mainly related to knowledge. Speaking about what makes ASCIRA stand out, John says, “As a company, we have opened up a new horizon of professional education and opportunities to diverse people around the world. We bring great social value to the communities as we offer the benefits of e-learning, impressive travel savings, and also important income streams for so many people, who have gone from earning a few hundred dollars to tens and hundreds of thousands of dollars in the last few difficult months, all thanks to ASCIRA.”
John is passionate about developing a social lifestyle community where more than a billion people can be inspired to never give up and convert their dreams into reality. He calls it the ‘Beyond a Billion’ project.
In view of his prolific achievements, John has been recognised with various international honours through the years – He has received numerous awards as a Top Producer since 1994; was invited as an international advisor of the United States Foreign Trade Institute; was a columnist writer for a Latino magazine; received the highest academic award from a University in Ecuador, the Simon Bolivar Award; is one of the Executive Producers of the film ‘Beyond the Secret’, which received multiple film awards; and contributed in the development of 20 people from middle-class to millionaires. One of his biggest achievements was taking a single product called ‘Immobiliser’ (auto security device) and introducing it at 67 locations in 17 countries across Latin America within 5 years, and making the product a global brand.
