Client Feedback

I have worked with John for over 12 years through many of my businessses. These have included mobile phone, home improvement, manufacturing, professional sports club, recruitment, administration and outsourcing companies.

Throughout my dealings with John he has always made an indelible mark on all of my companies. He has a unique style of delivery that is both challenging and delivery focused. His work ultimately breaks down into very quantifable barometers of measurement which suits the way I run my companies.

John helped me to grow companies in a structured and accountable manner which ensured that even during rapid growth, we never lost site with who we were and what we stood for.

I would recommend John to any business leader who wants to challenge not only his or her business but also themselves.

Ian Blackhurst, Co-Owner - Sale Sharks Rugby Club

John is has a real ability to translate corporate-speak into clear, simple, chunks of information without losing any of the meaning and impact.

He works tirelessly to understand the broader organisational strategic and cultural contexts. This helps him engage well with stakeholders at all levels and provide communications that are timely and relevant. John is highly focused, flexible and creative.

He challenges and is not put off by status or title, focusing only on performance improvement and delivering strategy.

His personal and professional integrity are clear and unshakeable.

Andrew Green, Head of Performance - Chess Telecom

One of the strongest elements of John's approach is how much effort he puts in to the preparation and his willingness to take on board any specific requirements or input we had. No session ever felt that he wasn't personally fully prepared.

As a character he is incredibly professional but at the same time very pleasurable to work with. He is certainly not  a YES man but at the same time not overly confrontational. 

He treats everyone equally and is not overly focused on senior team members.

Above all, John operates with complete integrity. He has a desire to make sure that he does everything possible and to look back with pride at the work he has carried out.
