TESTIMONIALS

Male IconNick Cann

Chief Executive, Institute of Financial Planning

“John was an excellent conference speaker. He had a strong understanding of the audience and his subject matter. This was proved when he identified types from the audience to match the profiles he was describing. He was entertaining as a keynote speaker and the delegates took a huge amount of learning from the session and the tips that he provided. The session looked at communication skills and knowing your client, and was first class.”

Male IconPhil Roberson,

Sales Director, HTC

“Our sales and marketing team has had two sessions of Reading People programme so far and we are delivering the results we wanted.

We are using the techniques in client meetings and are consistently turning “maybe” into “yes”. Morale is high, HQ is happy and we are looking forward to the third session. This stuff works!”

Male IconGeorge Bromley,

Chairman, Surrey & SW London Academy of Chief Executives

“It’s becoming a Surrey academy group tradition to see the old year out with a morning with John Cremer – always entertaining yet always insightful and boundary pushing for us as a group and this year was no exception. John’s ‘Reading People’ was a great session scoring a terrific 9.3 average.

The ancient art (or is it science?) of being able to read people and understand many of their behavioral and personality traits purely by their physical body/face shape and characteristics proved rich ground for both hilarity as well as interactive learning. John is a gem to spend time with, don’t miss any opportunity you get to see him in action.”

 

Male IconJohn Nicholls

Managing Director, London Calling Arts

“This has been without doubt the most worthwhile personnel management and HR/ personal/ professional development course that I have ever attended. John’s presentation style is truly inspiring. He engages with participants at a remarkable level. I’m recommending this course to everyone!”

Male IconJo Adams

Chairman Group 11 Academy for Chief Executives

“Thank you for your masterclass performance yesterday. Reading People was a resounding success. Your command of the subject, your inspirational style backed up by your astonishing verbal dexterity made for one of the greatest Academy days I have experienced. One member scored you straight tens, and said it was “the most enjoyable morning that he has had since joining the Academy.”

Female IconJoanne Whitlock

Managing Director, Cantomax

“I heard John speak about the ideas in his book ‘Reading People’. The description of one type jumped out at me as being like my husband – the Mars type. Luckily John was such a clear, enthusiastic and memorable speaker that I was able to go home and share his ideas, passing on the ‘this is what you could be doing in your life’ message. It is now a few years later and my husband has completed a Masters in Law, got a new job and is working internationally consulting on law in aviation. Being a great speaker is about so much more than standing up and being confident, for me, they have to inspire and lead to real change. Thank you John for being that catalyst for change.”

 

Male IconCharles Ayton

Head of Commercial Personal Banking, Lloyds Banking Group

“I did want to drop you a note following our conference at Christmas to say many thanks for an inspiring session which as you know following feedback was well received.

As an organisation we do much in the way of sales/relationship training and your session was very apt in thinking about selling/relationship building in a different way and by Reading People, allowed some of the CPBMs to think about how they may act in taking relationships forward with their customers. We look after an affluent base and we have many varied personalities and characters and by understanding them more will only help us move our business and indeed growth forward.”

Female IconTrish Jay

Director of Quality, 2gether NHS Foundation Trust

“John ran his ‘Reading People’ workshop for my top team in the Trust. The session was fun, thought provoking and most importantly made us all think outside of our NHS box. Great session.”

 

Female IconJenny Naylor

Group Marketing Director, Aspria

“John delivered a team-building workshop which perfectly met our objectives for the day and was a great balance of fun and learning, and reinforced the general principles of recognising the differences between people and managing these for effective relationships (as outlined in his book Reading People). Highly recommended.”

David Harding

Vistage Chairman

I invited John back to speak to my Academy group in December and what a Christmas treat for my members! John is able to educate, engage, challenge and entertain all at the same time. He is one of the few truly gifted speakers who are able to open the eyes of others to a different view of how things are. Inspiring!” – David Harding, Vistage Chairman

Julia E Knight

Work & Organisational Psychologist, DEJA People

“I have no hesitation in saying that John is one of the best facilitators/trainers that I have ever encountered. He manages groups with an intuitive skill that is a joy to behold. Being on the receiving end of his coaching can be tough at times, but that’s because he identifies precisely what each individual needs to work on at that moment in time and is unapologetic about pointing it out!”  

Ovanes Ovanessian

Co-founder of Evalato

John was the speaker of our “Reading People” conference on the 27th of November 2014 in Sofia, Bulgaria.John is one of the best speakers we’ve had. He really connected with the audience and engaged with them. The way he presents is fun and easy to understand. I would definitely recommend him without hesitation for your next conference.”

Matt Jorgensen

CEO, Foundation Flooring and 3MK Realty

“John is amazing at what he does. He worked with our group of CEO’s and gave us great take home skills and trainings that we can use with our teams. Fun, interactive, creative and interesting approaches. Best speaker I have heard in the last two years.” 

Mike Ogilvie

The Profit Team at x5 Accountants

John was engaging and entertaining, but also educating as we learned how to read people using John’s unique set of suggestions. I particularly loved […] his eye opening rules looking at people and how they look to decide on their probable characters.  […] I highly recommend John, even more so in the current times when you are looking for different ways to connect with and to motivate your team and connections” 

Chris Davies

CEO, Speaker, Conference Chair and Business Adviser

John is an incredibly accomplished speaker presenter management team improver.

Of all the many amazing speakers that I came across as part of the academy for Chief Executives- John was one of only two or three that I then paid to impart knowledge to the team back at base. He really is excellent.”
