Born in South Africa in 1959, John completed matric in 1997 at St Benedict’s College in Bedfordview, Johannesburg. After a short stint in the South African Airforce where he attained the rank of First Lieutenant, he started out in the Information Technology industry.
After becoming a partner in the systems development company in which he started he moved to Kessel Feinstein where he was appointed a Director a year later. He left in 1991 to start his own consultancy with Lydia Hoyland, his now life partner and presenter for The Journey Seminars in Africa.
In 2008 he took his passion for self improvement in himself and Africa as a whole to a new dimension as he took over the running of The Journey Seminars in Africa. This has resulted in John currently presenting the Conscious Communication, the No Ego Retreat and the Visionary Leadership seminars and retreats.
John brings a passion, zest for life and a sense of humour to both the presentation and the ongoing development of these fundamental life changing courses.
