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.

Morgan, Johnson & Johnson, Stanford University Graduate Business School, European Commission (Belgium), The Futures Foundation (Australia) , JFK University , University of California at Berkeley, Commonwealth Club of California, Australian Institute of Management, University of San Francisco Business School, Grace Cathedral, The Presidio Dialogues, The Club of Budapest (Hungary), The Economic Roundtable, Fast Company magazine's Company of Friends, World Business Academy, Human Resource Professional Association of Ontario (HRPAO), Griffith University (Australia), Presidio World College, California State Automobile Association, Harvard Business School Alumni - Northern California, Company of Leaders, Institute of Noetic Sciences (Frontiers of Consciousness Lecture Series), International Spirit at Work Awards, University of West Indies Business School (Trinidad-Tabago), State of Wyoming Small Business Development Center, Claremont College's Center for Process Studies, Parceiros Voluntarios (Brazil), Ethos Institute (Brazil), Willis Harman House (Brazil), Brazil Futures Group (Brazil), U.S. Consulate Corp (Brazil), California Workforce Association, Summit for the Future 2006 (The Netherlands), "eco6" CSR / SRI conference (Switzerland) , World Business Academy (US, South Korea, UK and Japan), World Future Society, along with other academic venues research institutions membership associations and corporations.

People being asked to serve on boards these days are justifiably concerned with matters of liability, compliance, and takeovers. They can expect to spend much of their time on a variety of real nitty-gritty issues such as compensation, mergers, acquisitions, forecasts, performance, under-writings, legal opinions, and shareholder sentiments.

Conscious Leadership: Taking Responsibility for Our Better Future

Category: Leadership - Reading Time: 6 min - 3090 Views

Traditionally, we've admired leaders who can mobilize people and evoke support for the specific cause they are advocating - be it a nation, an alliance or a multinational company. Charisma, communication skills, influence and vision have all played valuable roles in amassing a leader's following. However, our world has become incredibly complex over the past few generations, and our thinking, or consciousness, needs to riseto a higher level of complexity, beyond our now outmoded mindsets. There is an opportunity for a new breed of leader - one who embraces this new thinking.

Exploring Who We Are and What We Want

Category: Human Development - Reading Time: 5 min - 2758 Views

Some years back, before voicemail, a friend of mine recorded a memorable message on his answering machine. As I recall, it went something like this: "Hi, this is ____. At the sound of the beep please tell me who you are and what you want. If you think those are trivial questions, be reminded most of us have been trying to figure this out all our lives."

Becoming a Conscious Leader: A Call for New Leadership for New Times

Category: Corporate Culture - Reading Time: 7 min - 3323 Views

For the first time in history, we humans have the opportunity to participate in our evolution. Never before has a species possessed the ability to choose whether it continues its evolution toward a higher form or becomes extinct. Those who take a stand for this new truth - before it becomes more commonly believed, before it becomes the consensus reality and the operative paradigm for humanity - will be the leaders who create the future we'd all prefer.
