I work with Associations, Institutes and Professional Bodies, training and coaching their staff, members and volunteers to become the best communicators they can be. Whether it’s through working on their approach to presentations, public speaking or personal influence and impact, I can support the individuals that contribute to your organisation, to become more effective and confident communicators.


Offering: Training and Coaching Association staff, members and volunteers in small groups and one-to-one.

Expertise: Training workshops offered include: Chairing Meetings, Communicating with Impact, Presentation Skills, Public Speaking, Mentoring and Impact and Influence. The Personal Coaching Programmes are tailored to the individual.

Region consultancy provided in: I can deliver training and coaching to people and organisations in UK, Europe and worldwide.

I support individuals to grow. And I know associations, having spent 7 years as Membership Director of the Design Business Association and training and coaching for members of the AAE community. I use my experience to work with association professionals and their communities.

I’m a qualified coach with an Associate Certified Coach credential from the International Coaching Federation. I work to their code of ethics and competencies and maintain my CPD in line with their requirements.

Case Study: Personal Professional Development Programme in action
In July 2020 I was approached by an Association to deliver a bespoke suite of workshops and two coaching programmes to their volunteers. The aims were to create a programme that would be an excellent induction for volunteers. To maximise the value of their contribution to the Association. And to support their volunteers to develop new skills that would enhance their career.

Training Workshops: The workshops were bespoke, developed in partnership with the Association. An initial brief was shared containing salient information on the background to the training and some specific areas that it would be desirable to address. Themes covered included Chairing Meetings, Presentations, Public Speaking, Mentoring, Communicating for Impact and Effective Influence and Persuasion.

Coaching Programmes
Two programmes of one-to-one coaching were developed, one on Time Management and the other on Leadership.
  • The training sessions saw 47 attendees across 9 sessions. They rated them as follows:
  • 75% rated workshops as Excellent and 25% as Good
  • 75% rated speaker as Excellent and 25% as Good
  • “Thank you so much, it has been incredibly valuable to me”
  • “You’re a great educator! Thank you for another great session”
  • “Thank you so much, very insightful”
  • “Thanks for this session, very inspiring”
  • “Thank you, it’s been really useful and definitely learnt lots and lots to reflect on”
Feedback to the Coaching programmes:
  • “John is absolutely fantastic. His coaching sessions were transformative.  It has been a truly remarkable experience for me. I would thoroughly recommend him as a coach.”
  • “John is a really good listener, he has helped me look deeper into what is holding me back from what I want to achieve, but in a non-judgmental and kind way. I feel much better prepared for my future goals and dreams.”
  • “I feel much more confident and feel like I can handle situations in a calm and appropriate manner without feeling insecure or self-conscious. I feel that I understand the importance of my time more and how to separate a work-life balance a little bit better.”
