Highly interactive, warm-hearted, thought provoking and wickedly funny
John Cremer has spent more than twenty-five years researching, refining and developing the Reading People concept.
For seven years he initially studied the Human Archetypes theory with his teacher James Westly before going on to further evolve and advance the system, to ensure its relevance and value to any individual, team or organisation.
He uses it daily in his training work and client interactions, and is continually adding new and current observations to the process.
John is highly in demand as a keynote speaker and trainer, delivering Reading People sessions and courses to companies around the world, helping them to understand and apply these unique strategies for commercial success and bottom-line benefit.
He was voted ‘Speaker of the Decade’ by the Academy for Chief Executives, thanks to his deep insights and inimitable personal style. John is also active in the world of improvisation, delivering corporate and public sessions and performing with the Maydays, the troupe he founded.
Here’s an extract of a 90 minute presentation for Million Dollar Round Table in Philadelphia.
John describes the Jovial type, their likes and dislikes and concepts that quickly engage them. He then invites audience volunteers on stage to act as real life examples.
