John’s experience of educating his clients, including global brands, on how to prepare for, navigate and effectively manage personal change has led to individuals,  collective mindsets and businesses to thrive well beyond their expectations.

Whether it’s an online remote or live keynote, plenary session, lunch and learn, casual interactive Q & A session or team meeting, John is a master at delivering tailored, interactive and entertaining presentations because he knows the audience will retain the information and take action.

  • Focus – How to combat distraction and stay solution focused

  • The importance of, and how to celebrate, small achievements to build resilience

  • How to create a support network (or work as a team) to achieve targets, goals and success

“He is inspiring, engaging and fun! His attention to detail, to understand our organisation ahead of his presentation was brilliant – it meant we had a really meaningful and impactful presentation that our employees could really relate to. His key messages now resonate through the building.” Emily Norris, Nestle

“He really took time to understand the business, the terminology and the audience and then weave this detail into his presentation – which made it feel personal and relevant to the team in the room. Landing the mind-set messages with humour and magic was unique and many people spoke about how much they enjoyed it afterwards and were motivated to go out and sell… which ultimately was our goal!” Patrick Bramich, Unilever
