    What Client's Say


    “There are many leadership courses and consultancies that claim to transform. Our Senior Team needed reassurance before investing. John's practical 'taster' hooked us.

    "He combined the best of both worlds applying academic rigour and industry experience to make our leadership issues clear".



    "John turned our strategy around diagnosing the business and teaching us about the principles of business change. We identified over 100 symptoms and 13 root causes stopping growth. We were able to prioritise key issues like clarifying roles & responsibilities and reduce a new M&A conflict. We've finally recovered strategic vision".

    "We used Mining for Growth [Project 2] like intense Design Thinking to identify sales and marketing opportunities. We identified around 30 symptoms and 3 major root causes to improve business performance. It reduced conflict and focused us on delivering opportunities. We also have a Fast Track Problem Solving Framework teams use so we don't get stuck in again."

    John uses his unique ability vast experience to define his approach and help top-level leadership and management to hone their skills. Having someone like him to clarify both business and personal objectives, something that it is easy to lose sight of in the hustle and bustle of daily work, leads to greater focus and better, more satisfying, results.

    "John’s approach changed how we function as business. He developed the senior management team to diagnose the business and solve problems. We identified 20 symptoms and 5 root causes, got aligned and put change in place. We have a Fast Track Problem Solving process in place".


    “He is a leading figure in business leadership with decades of experience at a global level. I would highly recommend individuals, businesses, clubs, governing bodies and anyone wishing to progress their careers in sport to utilise John’s vast array of experience.”

    “Professor Grisby's experiences of helping leaders’ transition in industry 4.0 is packed full of useful, practical advice. His approach is a prerequisite for those leaders seeking to adopt and exploit the 'digital thinking'. It's now at our disposal."


    "We calculated John saved us between six and eight months turnover in time and resources.”
