  • John in ActionAccordion Dropdown

    This is a brief video about John and some of his accomplishments. It may be used as bio or introduction.

    I had the pleasure of chatting with my long time friend and colleague, Andy Bailey, in a webinar all about Piloting in Turbulence. In our conversation, I unpack four fundamental areas to focus on as a leader that will help your business get through this challenging time and in the future.

    Piloting in Turbulence with Andy Bailey from John Spence on Vimeo.

    John spoke at a TEDx event this year addressing the shifts in the modern workplace and leadership over time. We no longer work under a militaristic leadership style, but instead a servant leadership style. John shares how in today’s workplace and for the future, great leaders come from a balance combination of our intelligence quotient (IQ) and emotional quotient (EQ), and adaptability quotient (AQ).

    At the reThink Success Conference, John discusses the key components to reaching success and what success means to him.

  • What Sets John ApartAccordion Dropdown

    We charge a daily rate and encourage all of our clients to use John as fully as possible while he is on-site. That means you can schedule John for a keynote, a workshop, cocktail reception, luncheon or round-table, client, vendor, customer session/workshop. We offer this to our clients so they may receive as much value and benefit from the engagement.

    • As part of his fee, John will create a custom pre-event and post-event video message for you to share with your conference attendees.
      • The pre-event video is usually a greeting from John and outlines what his program will cover in order to build anticipation for the session and/or to drive attendance. This is a sample of an actual client’s pre-event video shared with their permission. John will customize your video to describe your meeting or event.
      • The post-event video is usually a thank you and wrap-up of the session that reiterates any action steps, take-aways or concepts that the participants should be implementing now that they are back in their offices. Both are quite powerful and popular aspects of having John as part of the event. This is a sample of an actual client’s post-event video shared with their permission. John will customize your post-event video to reinforce the key the components and ideas shared at your event.
    • We offer a pre-planning online survey where we can ask your key constituents what topic and/or challenges they would most like to address and craft a program around that feedback.
    • This is a sample of a John Spence Client Resource Portal. As we develop your program we will populate the portal with additional information relative to the subject matter of your engagement with John.  This page is intended to be shared with the attendees after your event and for them to use and share again with colleagues as a mini resource library and learning tool. View sample client portal.
