John's Guiding Principles
  • Every individual and organisation has the potential to be successful
  • Organisations grow and develop when individuals grow and develop
  • Producing truly compelling visions will contribute to achieving spectacular performance results
  • Changing the result will involve changing the individual's mindset and behaviour
  • You dont know what you dont know
  • Learning and personal growth is a journey not a destination
  • To succeed you need to enjoy it and have fun along the way
  • Personal development solutions work best when they are performance focused, pragmatic and inspiring
  • Anything less than a commitment to excellence is a waste of effort 

Personal message from John

My vision is to establish the winning formula as the leading business development approach used by consultants and coaches for ambitious growing organisations in the UK.

Since 1995, the winning formula has enabled many clients to achieve spectacular growth results. It has been used by start-up businesses, small and medium size enterprises and corporate companies to support their plans for growth. It has supported management buy-outs, private equity investment, mergers and aquisitions. 

I am looking for like minded professionals and partners to join me and help realise the vision for the brand. If you are looking for a new and challenging career as a business consultant, performance coach or trainer, then working with the winning formula may be right for you.

Why not give me a call or drop me a line to discuss this unique 'once in a lifetime' opportunity.

Regards and best wishes.


The winning (formula)® brand
