Popular Keynotes

What’s your Everest?

Einstein provided his definition of insanity saying it is people or organisations who keep doing the same thing but expect a different result. I totally subscribe to this principle and it is a keystone of my leadership and coaching philosophy – why play the same game as everyone else?

Change the game and be ahead of the pack!

Set yourself up for Success

Each of us face our challenges every day. Some we meet and defeat. Others seem to be impossible. It is often said, the true measure of someone is not how many times you have been knocked down, but that you keep getting back up to go again.

So how do you become resilient?

Winning teams – what sets them apart from the rest?

The ABs talk about the ‘the last man out cleans the sheds’. In Good to Great, Jim Collins talks about great teams having a culture of freedom and responsibility but within a defined framework. Simon Sinek views strong leadership as vital element to teams being successful. Military, business and political leaders that head successful organisations see shared values, accountability, teamwork and a ‘never say die’ attitude as trademarks in their teams.

Leaders dream and DO!

John has been fortunate to have been around many wonderful leaders, corporately, in sport, in education and in society.

He has also been fortunate to be in positions of leadership himself –

– to walk similar paths to those whom have inspired him.
