For Michael McLeod, CEO of professional services firm Message Stick, success didn’t come easily.

And looking back on his early years, it’s a wonder it came at all.

Michael was born in 1961, the youngest of six children. At just 12 months old, he and his siblings were removed from their parents and became wards of the state of NSW.

Michael spent his childhood in and out of children’s homes and many foster homes.

Drugs and alcohol featured prominently during his early life. He tried heroin for the first time at age 10 and alcohol around the same time.
