Through Audience Connection
Success Story:
Melinda Richter, Head of Johnson & Johnson Innovation Labs (JLABS)
You are in the business of cultivating leadership, training executives to be more engaging speakers, and providing up-and-coming superstars with opportunities to thrive. I want to assist you. Melinda Richter is just one of many I have coached to success. She has been well received at TEDx events, and many other events where she is an in-demand keynote speaker.

I train many top-level executives, and leaders-in-training. The people I train encouraged me to take my program to an online format, so I could reach and assist others to be more successful in speaking and connecting with their audiences. Along with being a keynote speaker, I now offer in-person trainings, one-on-one training, and the convenience of online training.

Try my Audience Secrets mobile training to get a taste of my full online public speaker and leadership training. Audience Secrets offers fast, actionable tips, that will immediately impact a leader’s ability to achieve focus and attention in meetings. My coursework empowers you to boost employee engagement by amplifying the leadership presence of the leaders you support. People will connect better with their messages, be inspired, and want to take action.

If you’re in charge of employee leadership development, try the sample mobile course out for yourself, and if you like it contact me to set up an appropriate training program for your leaders.

"John, I can't thank you enough for working with us here at NASA. You were so engaging and gave my team great tools and inspiration to take our communications to the next level. We look forward to continuing our relationship."

Communications Manager at NASA Headquarters
" have really tapped into the neuroscience and the neurobiology of who we are and how we communicate and how people persuade people and so forth and I was very impressed. I’m sitting here thinking, 'I need to take that guy’s workshop, and have you as a consultant.' So, I’d take time to work with him, to check out his work. He’s quite an amazing guy and he can help you be more amazing too."
