The ‘envelop’, ‘crunching’, the usage of ‘nibbling’ and the finalizing of concessions; everything was so good.

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.

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!
