Introduction: In part, because I have over a decade of professional speaking experience and with that, excellent platform skills. But more importantly, it is the more than 25 years of international business experience that sets me apart as a professional speaker. I have started several companies, enjoyed both business successes and failures, served on the boards of directors of corporations, nonprofits and foundations, here and overseas and consulted to some of the world's largest corporations. When I speak, it is not from something I read in a book or magazine, but from my own real life experience having been there and done it. That is what audiences want to hear, not merely theory, but actual experience speaking. Variety, it is indeed the spice of life. I thrive on learning and trying new experiences and things. As much of my work revolves around ideation and open innovation, being open to new ideas and ways of seeing the world is extremely important to me. Working internationally for decades with a wide variety of companies, as well as government and nonprofit organizations has filled my work with a never ending string of opportunities to grow my base of experience. With each new client and engagement, I look forward to the chance to learn still more. When we begin each day looking for the opportunity to learn, we are seldom disappointed.

John's level and diversity of experience made him a perfect fit for our company. If you're looking for a consultant or speaker with creative insights, energy, intelligence, motivation, humor, and a modern approach to igniting innovation within yourself or others, then John should be at the top of your list.

John's conversational style of public speaking mirrors the conversations you can have with him one-on-one. His ability to cut through the typical corporate buzz-speak and communicate directly with his audience is refreshing. Instead of leaving John's talks confused (or with a bullet list you could have pulled from Google), you'll leave knowing that John invested himself in understanding your company or organization well enough to share something of value.

  • What types of customers have you worked with?

    Ideation, innovation and complex problem solving are the primary areas in which I work, along with my team of consultants. That however, can take many different forms, as the needs of each client's business are unique. As much of my work is international is scope, the projects can vary greatly between clients. My work has included: defense and aerospace, white collar fraud investigation and asset recovery, new market penetration, new product troubleshooting and launch, logistics solutions, competitor research, emergency and interim management of client operations as well as developing strategic plans.

  • What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?

    The vast majority of accomplished professional speakers have excellent platform skills. Ask about content. Nearly all professional speakers have 'stock' or 'canned' keynote speeches that they customize for an audience, but 90+% of the content remains the same. I write each keynote from scratch, selecting the content to match the specific needs of the individual audience.
