Welcome to

YOUR

AUTOMATIC
CREATIVITY

Hi. I'm  John. I'm a Broadway producer.

I've won 2 Tony Awards and been nominated for 5.

I've worked with internationally famous artists and global superstars.

My shows have made millions.

I've dedicated my life to turning creativity into big business.

In this increasingly disrupted world,
creativity isn't just for artists.

It's your ultimate unfair advantage.

Don't just listen to me though. Consider: 

• 60% of CEOs worldwide name creativity as the most important leadership skill in business (IBM survey).
• 80% of people see unlocking creative potential as key to economic development (Adobe).
• 94% of executives are unhappy with the innovative performance of their companies (McKinsey).
• The World Economic Forum names Creativity as the 3rd most important job skill overall.

Despite all this, only 25% of people feel they are living up to their creative potential! (Adobe).

The result is clear: maximize your creativity to gain a critical edge over your competitors.

But there's good news:

You're already creative.
Everyone is.

We're wired for it like walking and talking. Only, we’re all taught to walk and talk. We're aren't all taught that we’re creative. 

It’s never too late to learn. That’s a good thing, too.
Creativity is a soft skill that delivers hard results. I can show you how.

And the best part? Engaging your creativity and fostering it in your environment makes you a more conscious leader, which makes you a more effective-- and happy-- leader.

Why settle for just being more successful,
when you can be
more alive too?

Over the years I have invited John to speak in my classes dozens of times, for good reason. He is articulate; he's funny; he's inspirational. He's honest, and he's a visionary.

My students are always stunned by his authenticity, amazed by his genius, and moved by his humanity. No matter what I'm teaching, John has something profound, revelatory, and uplifting to bring to our journey. I give him my highest possible recommendation.

Speaking

Your event needs a speaker to be both inspirational and entertaining, able to captivate a crowd with a compelling message while contributing to the message you want your attendees to walk away with.

My 20 years in showbusiness, combined with my decade of speaking at numerous conferences, seminars, and universities, have taught me how to play the room, tailoring a message not just to the audience but also to the objectives of the event.

Whether in person or virtually, around a workshop table or in a massive auditorium, I provide not only a fresh perspective but also actionable tools so your attendees with more than a new worldview... they leave with a new gameplan.

Prominent engagements include

  • On Deck Learning Conference 2021
  • Commercial Theatre Institute
  • Florida Alliance of Arts Educators Summit
