You and your staff will be captivated as John tells his story with a disarming and formidable sense of fun, enthusiasm for life, and unfailing determination to see every obstacle as an opportunity.

You will be inspired by John’s honest account and willingness to laugh at himself as he shares the moments when he fell down a manhole, stepped off a train and missed the platform, and the much requested wallpaper story!
