John is a regular keynote speaker at events across the UK, Europe and beyond. Get in touch if you’re holding an event you’d like to invite him to speak at (due to demand, he is unable to speak for free).


“John is a fantastically energetic and inventive speaker, who is able to breath life into a dizzying array of topics. Diligent to a fault, he’ll spend weeks crafting a new topic that seamlessly blends highbrow concepts with popular culture. The process may look messy—just check out some of his instagram pictures—but the results are a beautifully crafted and humorously delivered work of art. By now you’re probably getting the sense that we’re fans at Clearleft, and you’d be right. So you should definitely get him for you next high-end conference, corporate away-day or children’s party!”

“John gave an excellent talk at our Google Firestarters event. He is an excellent provocateur, with an intelligent, considered viewpoint that stimulated a huge amount of discussion, interaction and feedback. If you’re thinking about hiring him to give a talk, do it and don’t hesitate.”

Neil Perkin, Only Dead Fish


“When John strolled onto a conference platform or put fingers to keyboard for Campaign, I always knew that my business digestive system would be energised and stimulated. John’s one of those magical people who takes a brief with infectious enthusiasm, then finds new and imaginative ways into old problems and debates.”

Caroline Marshall, former editor of Campaign, founder of Caroline Marshall & Partners


“John is an inspirational speaker, a pioneering thinker, an accomplished professional and above all a great personality. His keynote at the iMedia Agency Summit over dinner went down a treat with all our senior delegates.”
