During the COVID-19 pandemic, John attended many virtual events, booked as an exciting guest speaker. Read the feedback he has received below.

"The session with John was excellent and very well received by the audience. Participants were very engaged and asked a lot of questions to learn more" - Simone, Straumann

"I would like to thank you for participating in our summit. The audience loved your presentation and took away many key learnings that they hope can be applied moving forward." - Ines, MCi Group

"The was engaging and interesting (and relevant) to our team. Over 300 people opted to attend and stuck around till the end. Both Chat and Q&A submissions were nice and lively for one of these things (in my experience). The leaders (myself included) received a few text messages, emails, etc. thanking us and complimenting the session." - Transunion

"We heard excellent feedback about your presentation for the remainder of the week. We’ll continue to promote your services – and we may have you back again next year. There’s more than enough material for another presentation. Thanks again for being so responsive to the needs of our audience." - Life Insurance Council

"I thought your talk was incredibly insightful and effective; I found myself referencing a lot of it while working with their teams. The overall structure— the juxtaposition of principles and how they are put into practice—is great. And the depth of practical knowledge was greater than in most other speakers’ talks (comparing propositional knowledge - “knowing that” v practical knowledge “knowing how”). As a speaker, you’re high energy and wholly credible, so I thought it was fantastic." - Deloitte
