Applause for John
“John did a great job at our CEO Club meeting, He took what could have been an esoteric and/or theoretical conversation about business disruption and disruptive leadership and made it entertaining, informative and insightful. He also made sure the audience left with a few key how-to’s and ideas for their businesses. If your organization serves CEOs of small and medium-size businesses, you need to have John come speak to them.”
– Doug Strouse, President of the CEO Club of Baltimore
“In his recent presentation, John did a great job differentiating between highly successful CEOs whose companies transform the world on a major scale and those who end up destroying a significant amount, if not all, of the value of their businesses. John ensured that the audience picked up on the paradox that despite their mistakes when running a business, “destructive” leaders like Travis Kalanick, Uber’s former CEO, often transform the world just as much as their more successful counterparts. This and other thought-provoking ideas generated some very interesting questions and a lively discussion.”
– Walter Burr, Co-founder of AlertMe and The Accelerating Companies Fund
“Thank you so much for presenting at Consult-Con 2018. Featuring you in our agenda helped us get the best attendance in five years. You were one of our top ranked speakers and helped the conference earn an approval rating of 85%.”
– Henry DeVries, CEO, Indie Books International LLC

Book John to speak to your audience and he will deliver. John is able to speak and train on a varity of topics:
+ Walking the Thin Line Between Disruption and Destruction
Even if a disruptive business has a powerful value proposition, it can quickly turn to destruction if basic business rules are ignored. Unproductive mindsets and blind spots often trip up even the best CEOs. Leaders will learn that by just changing one or two aspects of their business it can become a force of disruption as long as they and their organizations maintain a high level of performance.
+ What’s Different About Disruptive Leaders?
There are as many approaches to leadership as there are leaders. In the world of disruptive leadership, the great ones consistently exhibit seven specific characteristics. This eye-opening presentation will help attendees identify these characteristics and teach them how to apply these traits to accelerate both their organization’s growth and their personal success.
+ Making Great Decisions in a Disruptive World
Agility and adaptability are no longer enough! Accurately anticipating the world’s changing needs and strategically addressing them provides organizations with their biggest advantage. In this thought-provoking presentation attendees will learn how mastering the disruptive decision-making process will position them and their organizations to turn disruption and change into their best advantage.
+ Wealth and Transformation
Accelerating your company’s growth and generating wealth requires a transformative way of thinking. This presentation capitalizes on driving growth from the inside out to take control of your future. Attendees will learn how to break out of the status quo and, not just act on new opportunities, but to be the driving force behind them.
+ Dare to Imagine a Better World
Truly big and transformative disruptions only occur when an existing ecosystem is forced to put its users, who had until then been subsidiary to very powerful companies and organizations, firmly at the center of that ecosystem. Attendees will learn how to systematically create disruptive opportunities that when implemented could create great value for thousands, even millions of people and generate immense wealth for themselves, their organizations and investors.
