Keith delivered a clear presentation which was very easy to understand. He was able to provide related examples as a method of practice. Kexxel Group arranged and coordinated the event very well. The event was definitely related to my job scope.

Immersive Journey through the Business & Mind Safari with

International Keynote Speaker and Master Storyteller

The Master Storyteller, John Carroll

John Carroll

Founder & CEO of John Carroll's Business Safaris
Clients include BMW, Johnson & Johnson, & Reckitt Benckiser

John is a hands-on entrepreneur and business leader for over 30 years, who specialises in developing engaged, productive employees and great corporate cultures that truly live the brand. His career in brand marketing, advertising, business strategy, generalist HR, and general management has spanned across Australia, Southern Africa and the U.K.

He is the author of "Purposeful – A Guide to Finding Clear Direction in a Chaotic World", which was rated 4.8/5.0 on Goodreads. Recently, he has published his second book, "Leading for an Engaged Culture - How the Meerkats Formed a Family and Other Stories", focusing on corporate culture and employee engagement. Aside from contributing to various magazines and journals, he has also appeared on national television and radio. 

As an internationally recognised speaker, John masterfully weaves his business experience, love of wildlife, extraordinary life journey through an upbringing and military service in war-torn Zimbabwe, personal tragedy, and chronic illness into enthralling African animal fables that underpin and illustrate his captivating keynote presentations and highly practical yet entertaining workshops.

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


 John Carroll's First Book, Purposeful          John Carroll's Book, Leading for an Engaged Culture


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!
