John is a pioneer in developing visual tools to assist in risk communication and has extensive experience working with industry, government agencies, the military and all areas of healthcare.

John has a lifetime's experience in successfully communicating medical and scientific issues to the public.

He serves as a good example of how someone with a passion for his subject (aided by his sense of humor and a library of wildlife films) can make what might appear to be a heavy topic into an appealing and even an entertaining and informative adventure.

Matching meeting planners' needs

John is also an experienced international speaker whose entertaining keynotes and value-packed seminars offer unique possibilities for meeting planners. Where appropriate, he can include memorable metaphors from segments of his National Geographic Society wildlife films that he narrates live to provide a distinctive “change of pace and change of style”

As an ex-professor from Oxford, John is uniquely qualified to provide cutting-edge information to healthcare and industry professionals. He has a track record of past clients that speak to his ability to stimulate and energize audiences.

His healthcare presentations offer the additional advantage of being eligible for CME credits.
