From finding himself in debt after a skiing holiday to being the chief executive of a multi-million pound business. John will tell the story of how he built his company up from an idea to the success it is today, drawing on lessons he learned during his time in the British Army along the way.
He will explain how to network through your career, what you personally need to do, where the power resides and how to create powerful networks to get things done. He will look at top teams including “the C-Suite” and explain how they can be organised and create value. He will also explain why most people aren’t invited to be the CEO and ultimately he will tell you how to become the boss.
As CEO of Europe's leading C Suite network business, John is intimately involved in the leadership of Winmark and the management of its C-Suite networks.
He founded the Institute of e-Business and Chairs the Membership Organisations Data Group (MODG). He currently sits on boards and committees for Imperial College Business School, University of East London (Business School), West London College, School Home Support (SHS), Chartered Management Institute (CMI) and the Worshipful Company of Marketors.
In 1989 John was commissioned from the Royal Military Academy Sandhurst into the Coldstream Guards. He had a successful career in the army being decorated for distinguished service. His last role was as UN Operations Officer in Bosnia.
He has a Masters in Business (MBA) along with a Master of Arts in Poetry having published two books of poems, one of which launched in the House of Commons.
