John is a passionate Business Coach with a particular interest in Communications Skills Training, Personal Development and Sales Skills. As a business coach and strategist, he helps executives and professionals to make breakthroughs that take them to the next level. In addition to that, John has over 20 years of experience as an entrepreneur owning and running a business.
His expertise lies in his communications skills and his passion for helping others to get from where they are to where they want to be. His work experience in Sales and Business Development in multinational and national sales organisations and entrepreneurship have given him the breadth of knowledge needed to pursue his passion for coaching executives and professionals. While working in the industry, he sold and negotiated high-profile contracts for a technology multinational for major national projects. Moreover, by running his own business and negotiating many multi-year services contracts, John gained a more thorough understanding of liaising with stakeholders and decision-makers. For the past 17 years, he has continuously sold and negotiated services in the Irish market to various sectors. His invaluable experience and his unique training methods mean John actively helps teams maximise their potential.
John’s collaboration with NxtGEN began back in 2014. He holds a Professional Practice Certificate in Training and Development from the Irish Institute of Training and Development. In 2021 John was awarded a Higher Education Teaching Certificate from Harvard BOK (The Derek Bok Centre for Teaching and Learning), a green belt in Lean Six Sigma from University College Cork, and a certified Life Coach. He combines his work as an entrepreneur, business coach, and a weekend radio presenter at Limerick City Community Radio to create a unique teaching style and memorable learning experiences.
