Speaking engagements

Over the last eight years I have enjoyed speaking to an extensive range of audiences. These have included the staff of the major Australian banks, corporates such as McDonalds, Shell, Canon, Westfield, Ericsson, Jetstar, Telstra & Telecom, and a wide variety of franchise groups, professions & trades.

I am an inspirational speaker able to adapt my presentations to suit any type of audience and occasion, be it a keynote address, the opening or closing of a conference or as an after-dinner speaker.

My aim is to inspire, engage, entertain and provide the audience with valuable personal and business messages. These include reference to taking calculated risks, branding, sales and marketing, innovation, teamwork, training, quality, competition and change, to mention just a few.

Here are a few comments from some of my clients:

'Heartfelt, emotional, touched people, connected with the audience, received standing ovation, people swarmed him afterwards, genuine, passionate, loved him.' Tourism New Zealand

'Blew everyone away, gave it everything, his presentation was spot on, he understood the brief perfectly.' Coca-cola Australia

'John's presentation was not only outstanding, but was considered by many to be the highlight of the entire event. John's story was informative, entertaining, and moving leaving us inspired and emotional. John more than exceeded all our expectations. 10/10.' RACV Australia
