About me

Introduction Throughout a varied and challenging career in the Royal Navy, in which he rose to submarine command, John developed an incredible understanding of human communication. Frequently a Royal Navy media spokesman and having been part of the production team during a major TV series, John founded Black Isle in 1990 in order to share his experiences and understanding in order to develop effective communication within a business environment. John's approach disagrees with a great deal of conventional wisdom concerning presentation and personal impact. He builds on the uniqueness of personality and helps people perform at their natural best in any situation. Probably the key to John’s approach is the understanding that every meeting, every presentation can be enjoyable for the speaker and the audience. As well as coaching numerous politicians in North America, Europe and Asia, John has helped many senior executives and public figures perform more effectively in high profile appointments.
