John Shackleton is an inspiring performance specialist! he's a powerful speaker and knows from personal experience, how to lift performance to a new level!
John became one of Europe’s top inspirational speakers after achieving phenomenal success as a businessman, international sports coach, property developer, British (and now NZ) Masters swimming champion, executive coach to CEO’s and MD’s; quite a background!

He pulls no punches and knows what works from personal experience!   His keynote presentations will inspire your audience to go out and put into practice the techniques he talks about, allowing them to lift their performance to new levels.  John is also an experienced MC and facilitator of workshops so all presentation aspects of your event can be covered by him, meaning you only have the cost of one speaker, not three.

He is also the author of "Life is for Living" and "Inspire your Team" and explains the importance of controlling attitude, confidence, self-esteem and mental focus. “My passion is helping people to understand how improving these things greatly enhances their performance either as a producer themselves or a manager of others”. John’s style is energetic, amusing and hard hitting, using examples from business and sporting achievements (and failures!) and then adapting them to his audience’s environment. 

In the 1980’s he started a British based training company developing an impressive client list, including organisations like ICI, Rank Xerox, Securicor, IBM, Hewlett-Packard, etc. which became the premier company of it’s kind in the UK turning over more than £1,000,000. His role as MD of this company coupled with his sports psychology background led John to become one of the UK’s top business coaches, working with CEO’s and top executives from many blue chip companies including 3M, SmithKline Beecham, Astra Zeneca & Pfizer.

His eighteen years experience in business and training, combined with his sports psychology background, have given John a unique style and an unrivalled ability to help individuals grow, develop and achieve more. His presentations use the latest human development technologies to help people excel and achieve new heights. “Most people really want to achieve greater things, but are held back by their own thinking, negative attitudes, limiting beliefs and fragile self esteem. I love helping people to harness the awesome power they have inside and use it to create outstanding results in their lives.”
