John Shackleton talks about motivation and tells us to stop motivating our staff, and what you should do instead… “You can only motivate somebody, with his / her approval”, says John. Motivation is internal and what we can do is to inspire, not to motivate.
Over the last 20 years John has spoken to most of the world’s major Pharmaceutical and Insurance companies, many of Europe’s top Banks and Finance Houses and the majority of the top Real Estate companies throughout Australasia. His recent clients include: Air New Zealand, Coca Cola, Hyundai, Honda, Renault, Westpac Bank, ANZ Bank, National Bank, Tower Insurance, AMP, AXA, Canon, Sharp, Sony, Kodak, Avon, Burger King, Subway etc. He speaks in Australia, New Zealand and throughout Asia to a wide variety of audiences of mainly Salespeople, Managers and Business owners but in the last two years he also spoke to Vets, Tax Specialists, Bankers, Farmers, Recruitment Consultants, Doctors, Entrepreneurs, Engineers, Nurses, Morgage Advisors, Dieticians, Accountants, Lawyers, Builders, Secretaries, Teachers and Schoolchildren.
As a keynote speaker and workshop leader John won the 2004 Inspirational Speaker of the Year, the 2005 Business Person of the Year and the prestigious 2007 Speaker of the Year award as voted for by NSANZ (the National Speakers Association of New Zealand). In 2007 he achieved his CSP (Certified Speaking Professional) from NSA Australia. This designation is awarded to only the top 5% of professional speakers worldwide and only 4 have ever been awarded to New Zealand presenters. His unique background and experience has made him a powerful motivational speaker with a story borne out of life experience not trite text book theory. His humorous but hard hitting style will have his audiences laughing and crying but more importantly they will find themselves making big changes to their thinking processes and taking greater levels of personal responsibility then ever before in their life.
