John has been my business coach for a year now and I have seen an ROI of 25% in my net Revenue and profit as a result. He has helped me to focus on driving sales, focusing my time, improving production and employee satisfaction. As an entrepreneur, it is important to know where you are in your business and specifically where you are going. John has given me tools to analyse what I have done and do what i have to do to move my business forward.

I highly recommend John as a coach and a business consultant: deep experience and interest in a client's needs, strong support and powerful coaching skills helped me to identify a new level of my business development through amazing "Aha moment!" just in a hour work with John! Thank you John, and wishing you well!

Marina Malmberg – Owner

John is a visionary that takes global thinking from years of experience across big and small corporate environments, and applies it locally by pursuing his passion of providing traction for micro business growth. Working alongside John at The Network Hub Nanaimo has resulted in several "a-ha!" moments through discussion and collaboration, and John's presence is reassuring. So, if you are like me - a micro-business owner with a 'why not' mindset - you will likely experience a faster 'concept' to 'commercialization' for your business by working with John.
