John R.'s Profile

The Keynote Speaker who makes you think!
A highly-respected business futurist and a renowned global thought-leader, he stimulates people to think differently about work, leadership and the future. A powerful, engaging and knowledgeable presenter, he has been called a 'business visionary' by The Futurist magazine.

As an international keynote speaker, his clients rave about his ability to provoke new ways to think about their work, their organizations, and their own futures. He's a champion of the human spirit and a cheerleader for the power of conscious intentionality in business life and work in general.

All of John's keynotes contain one core message: 'The quality of the life and work of industrialized human beings - and the legacy they leave to successive generations - can be incredibly improved by making everyday choices more consciously.'

A veteran businessman for over three decades, he started his first business when he was only 18 years old. Since then, he's owned and operated an advertising agency, co-founded and served as Managing Director of a real estate investment company, ran two investment securities firms and was the Editor-in-Chief of a specialty business book publishing house.

Since the mid-1970s, he's also been exploring the field of human consciousness and potentiality - particularly how they meld with work and business life. His talks apply equally well in any industry, sector or enterprise.
