If your listeners are interested in productivity, employee engagement, improved results in their company, I can help them whether introvert or extrovert. Most business owners are losing productivity as they don’t understand introversion.
Many introverts face struggles in an extrovert business world. They’ll probably appreciate ideas to improve their career, business, their networking, their small talk skills. But they need ideas for introverts, not the normal extrovert based tips.
Based on my research, I’ve learnt that a few simple steps could improve productivity of most teams, the introverted third to half of the team, AND everybody else.
I will often use metaphors and stories (especially linked to the undersea world) to help get the message across.

Nobody consciously destroys a third of their firm’s productivity, but many do unconsciously.
My research-based approach uncovers what’s creating the productivity gap in many firms and how to close it it.
Clue: Most leaders don’t understand introversion!
Most team meetings are ineffective, before even considering the introverted third of the room who are even more disengaged.
Let’s discuss how to run meetings that make things happen, whether remote or face to face meetings.

I’m happy to do our podcast live, or recorded, on video or audio (though I’d like to know which, in advance). I also run my own podcast so understand you want a guest who will turn up on time, speak coherently and work with you to structure a useful message into the time you have – rather than you having to edit out 15 minutes of ego waving, umms, errs and irrelevant material.
I’ve coached business owners to grow their firms for many years and trained sales teams so I’ll happily speak on business growth and sales; I tend to do it from the perspective of introverts in business.
When I’m not working I spend as much time as possible underwater, you can always get me talking about the underwater world and I’ll link underwater and the business world of your listeners.
I invited Jon to join me for an interview series to that was published on YouTube and other social media.
Jon was a lot of fun to interview and shared lots of valuable and useable insights and tips. The feedback has been brilliant, showing show just how good Jon is as a guest.
I would highly recommend Jon as a speaker if you want your audience to feel like they have invested their time well and can go away with useful and actionable takeaways.
Examples of other shows I’ve been on.

“Jon and I worked together on a virtual talk at Future Frame 2020 and he was a fantastic addition to the keynote speakers. His talk was very informative and touched on issues that not too many leaders think about.
What I loved about Jon’s virtual keynote speech was the tone he set and the knowledge that he had regarding the introvert team members. His talk was very insightful and he gave great tips on how leaders can bring out the best of every team member.
He was really good at the way he presented the information. Very understandable and with actionable suggestions.
Our audience feedback was very positive and Jon managed to answer many questions asked by members of the audience.”
