What his client’s say …..

‘He’s as dry as a chip and funny as hell – and as he say’s, he’s RIGHT, and, IT WORKS!!!  It’s not rocket science, just plain old fashioned common sense presented in just the right manner to get the message across!  We absolutely LOVED him!

In my opinion, Dr John is a “must have” Speaker for those who are committed to improving their overall lifestyle’
‘Dr John was terrific and he was a good choice for the audience.  He delivered a very entertaining presentation and most people chuckled their way through his presentation but still took away some important personal health messages.

I would have no hesitation in recommending him to others.  …. it was worth the investment particularly as we are looking to build health awareness in our workplace’.
Symbion Health

‘The audience loved John. They loved his humour and really appreciated his message. He was easy to work with and was very co-operative. Based on the number of people that wanted to talk with him and buy his book I think I can say that John was a huge success’.
