The Dream Team

John is renowned for his specialist skills in developing high performance teams (Tiger Teams). It is not surprising that he took great care over his choice of a very high calibre group of leaders to run the programme. The team members are all professional specialists in their own field. Together they provide a lifetime of experience in leading people under the most testing conditions. Above all they are able to blend a deep pool of insight with a matched level of humility. The one thing they have in common is a deep desire to be of service to those who come on the programme.

It is this commitment from the leaders to serve that makes the impact of the Bravehearts experience so powerful and enduring. Needless to say, the opportunity to work as a member of this specialist team is deeply valued and highly sought after.
