For over two decades, John Kennedy has inspired well over 500,000 audience members throughout North America, Europe, Australia and the Caribbean. John’s success was galvanized in the hospitality & tourism industry as a restaurant & hotel executive with a strong sense of teamwork, sales and leadership. He learned from the best and now speaks to many who want to be their best.
John’s topics include: “Creating World-Class Teams,” “Total Leadership Development” (from his book Management That Cooks!), “Non-Stop Customer Awareness” (from his book Fantastic Customer Service…Inside and Out!), and “Building The Optimal Workplace Culture” — a highly sought after consulting program.
John’s success list includes: American Bus Association, The Baltimore Ravens, Marriott Hotels, Orvis, U.S. Air Force, Bermuda Gas, Elizabeth Arden, Taco Bell, Canada Bread — along with over one hundred local, state and federal government agencies and associations. John’s greatest offering to his clients is his total immersion into their culture, issues and interests. He then creates a program targeted directly to the audience.
“As a professional event planner I have worked with literally hundreds of speakers through the past 2 decades and it is extremely rare to find a speaker with such amazing energy, talent, and flexibility. John’s passion for inspiring people is truly contagious, and he is always among the highest-rated speakers at any event he participates in. Most notably, though, he’s also without question one of the most delightful to work with — a true professional!” - Kellee Magee O’Reilly, Chief Experience Officer, Monkey Bar Management
