Writer, Speech and Presentation Consultant
Learn the techniques of authentic, anxiety-free communication as outlined in my new book.

“This book is about the power of words—and the strength we gain from learning how to use them better. I Have Something to Say shows that we don’t suffer

from speech anxiety because we’re anxious; we’re anxious because we haven’t learned how to use words to connect with everyone around us.”



Coaching ,  Consulting,  &  Speaking

Let me help you, your team, or your company with your next speech, presentation, pitch, video, Zoom meeting, or interview. The I Have Something to Say method uses easy-to-master, ancient principles to help companies and individuals communicate more effectively and authentically -- without anxiety.

Do you have something to say? With a few hours of training, I will show you how to explain your ideas in a way that makes it easier for others to understand and agree with you.

90% of my team’s success comes from being able to talk well. Sales presentations, conference calls, even casual meetings—it’s all face-to-face communication (even over Zoom). If you ask us how often we feel like we did a terrible job, the answer is about 50%. John’s clearly explained, easy-to-learn communication principles gave us a template for preparing for meetings, pitches, presentations, and conference calls. Everyone who’s used his methods feels better about their performance. I’d recommend John to anyone.
