The content of the seminar was very clear and concise. I had a very good experience in updating the knowledge of the subject. I also felt that I could take away actionable idea. Overall, it was a very good event.

A Sneak Peak Into John Carroll's Business & Mind Safari


John Carroll's First Book, Purposeful          


John is one of the best facilitators because he genuinely cares and respects people; he shares and generously gives his time and talent in and outside the training room. John possesses great training techniques and is a natural coach and mentor. He delivers life changing information in a way that really hits the mark and makes an indelible imprint that can make all the difference when making choices in life. I highly recommend John Carroll if you want to improve, develop, motivate or just be entertained whilst being educated!
Ivana Agapiou - General Manager, Eather Recruitment

John is a great storyteller. His message about customer, employee and brand experience told though his self-written African tale about The Monkey, where he taught us that real engagement is so much more important than constant chatter, was one of the highlights of a recent conference I went to..” 
Han te Riele - Managing Director, Brightlabs

"John... is enlightening and the way he tells the stories just comes and grabs the audience. I'd recommend how he tells and relates life stories to business to anybody. Fantastic!
Phil Haynes - Special Advisor, Holden General Motors New Zealand
